It feels like it's been forever since i've been on here and talking about my planning.
My dining room table that's in my den is now FULL of wedding stuff. It's crazy how much stuff we have now. Now that summer is here and i'm much busier with life than I was in the winter.. it feels like everything is just a blur and going by so quickly. I'm scared that all of a sudden summer is going to be over and i'm going to be a few short months away.
Originally I had painted some mason jars a bright mint colour for my centrepieces.. I kept looking at them and thinking that it may be a bit much since i'm having blush table cloths and gold sequins. I still really loved the mint, so I decided to paint a bit of a "grayish" tone on top and then distress them so that the mint peeks through. I'm in love with how they turned out.
We were also going to be using my bridesmaids bouquets for the centrepieces on the table (originally), but I spoke to my resort and they are going to allow me to break up my 20 roses and use them for my centrepieces. It works out well because i'm going to have 3 guest tables + head table. On our head table I plan to use our bridal bouquets as the floral.
I've decided on white roses and i'm going to bring artificial baby's breath to add to the roses. I liked the white because we already have so much colour on the tables that I think it will look best..
Here's the mason jars after I repainted/distressed them..

I tried them with some artificial peonies I had laying around the condo..
I didn't have any roses, but this was my inspiration..
Also, I got my bags from wedding chicks!! For anyone who is hesitating to order them...THEY ARE PERFECT- DO IT! haha
The website said it would take up to four weeks. I got them a week after I ordered them and they had to clear customs here in Canada.. i'd say that's pretty amazing. Overly impressed with them, but for any brides reading this that don't know about the wedding chicks sales.. make sure to wait until they have 40% or 50% off sale. I think they usually have them in the summer and last year I believe they had a 4th of July sale.
We bought mint so that it appealed to both genders.
Lastly, I'm finished my bridesmaid gifts (of course Chester hasn't bothered thinking about his GM gifts yet..typical.. i'm sure i'll be nagging him at the last minute).
My girls will be getting..
Their BM dress (paid for by me)
A kimono robe
A sephora bag full of goodies (I wayyy overspent on these $60 per person) - EOS Lip balm, EOS hand lotion, A Macaron Trinket with Fresh water pearl earrings inside, a Juicy Couture roller ball perfume, Evian mist, Custom hair ties (ordered on Etsy - They say "To have and to hold your hair back"), Bobby Pins, Tide travel packs, Nuetrogena make up removing wipes, Mint chocolates and more that I can't remember right now.

I was thinking of getting my MOH a little something special too, but haven't quite figured out what as of yet.
@kcole123 thank you!! I have reached out to my bank and the company.. seems like it's going to get resolved and i'm so happy about that. One last stress!! Being a bride to be is more than enough stress.
