I was a busy bee this weekend. I worked on a few projects , even though it might be kind of early for some of them.
I followed your guy's advice and I'm going to do the guest book with the "cued" responses and then I'll add a photobooth. I'll just put the two together afterwards. So with my mom we worked on designing the cards, and this is what we came up with:
It's not the final copy yet and there's some things I want to change about it.
Then I worked on the little vases for the tables. I just put some ribbon and lace on them and this is what they look like:
The bridesmaid bouquets are going to go in there on the tables.
Then I started thinking of what I want for the table numbers. I found what I liked so I made them haha. I know it's super early for this but I made more than enough. I cut them using a cricut machine that my mom has and I'll put them on some kind of holder like the first picture. I played around with the colors but in the end we both liked black numbers better, so I made them all black numbers and pearly ivory background. I just have to glue them on now and that's why they don't look even on the paper
Then I also edited the website. I changed the times of the reception to reflect our changes, and I also added a page on dress code. I had a few people ask me so I thought I would create something with some picture examples so there's no guess work. It was so hard to find pictures of guys' attire haha.
Originally I was so strict about the attire, but now I realized I was being totally unreasonable, especially given how hot it's going to be out there. If people are uncomfortable they'll just end up leaving early and I really don't want that to happen. Originally I didn't want guys to wear shorts, etc. I guess I was afraid of people showing up in beach shorts. The whole thing really started when I went to hand out the invitations and one of my friends was wearing a beach cotton dress. So she asked me what she should wear, and her mom chimed in saying "Oh, something like what you're wearing is fine" I didn't really know how to tell her that it was a more formal event haha. So awkward. So anyway, the main thing is I want people to look good and keep it somewhat formal, but I'm not going to turn into a bridezilla/fashion police over such a small detail. This is what I wrote on the website (I added pants for the ladies, although I really doubt anyone will wear any pants, unless they're crazy haha)
That's it for now! I'm tracking the jewellery, it's in Mississauga now, but needs to go through customs and that can take a while sometimes. Can you tell i'm a bit anxious? haha
