I feel like I've been spinning my wheels lately! I'm sure those of you who have planned/are planning a wedding know what I mean... those weeks where you feel like all you do is try to plan, but find out that you have nothing accomplished! This update will be about the things that I actually HAVE managed to make some progress on in the last few weeks...
We're on the last set of proofs for our invitations (which you can see in my last post), so I'm feeling very happy to almost have that checked off of our list! We also just sent out our Save the Dates this past week which is very exciting, because it's making this wedding start to feel real! For our STDs, we worked with a fabulous graphic designer who used some of our engagement photos (which I will post as soon as we get the disc!) and I think she did a fabulous job! Sarah from Signatures by Sarah was so wonderful to work with, and extremely fast with getting back proofs! We chose to do a postcard design, and here are the images we ultimately chose (names are changed for privacy):
The other big thing that is *almost* figured out are the bridesmaid dresses! We managed to find an amazing dress that fits our theme, and that all the girls love... I can't believe we did it :) Only problem is, we weren't able to try it on in the store, as it's from a 2011 collection. The stores should be receiving them soon, so fingers crossed we'll be able to see them soon! From Jim Hjelms 2011 collection:
I think the colour is to die for... so excited to see it on the girls! And worst case scenario that we all hate it, I do have a backup plan!
Other fun things coming up:
Tomorrow Matt and I are going cake tasting... this will be the 4th bakery, and we're hoping they'll be the one! We're looking to get a beautiful piped cake, and are interested in getting something like this recreated in 4 tiers:
After the meeting with the bakers, we're headed to The Bay in downtown TO to check out their dinnerware, linens, and other fun things like that!
I've also been working on gifts for our bridal party, but that won't be making an appearance on the blog just in case ;)
Hope that you all have a wonderful weekend!
