wedding edition

So all of my wedding plans are slowly falling into place. By slowly, I mean verry slowly.

We are waiting on the contract from our location. We need to make sure the price is what we want before we make any final decisions. Other than that, I booked a photographer and also tents, and a dance floor.

I guess I should get on my to-do list which includes invites, dj, and hair appointments. Oh yeah...I haven't ordered my dress yet either! I will be doing that tomorrow though...I think.

I am trying to do a lot of DIY projects as I can for the reception. My sister is creating our invites and I have taken it upon myself to make the flowers for the reception. I do however, withhold the right to change my mind if something disastrous happens.

So off I trotted to the fabric store today to look for some materials.

This is a little sneak peak of what is to come. I can't say that I'm completely happy with it. It will be a little trial and error. I am going to pick 3 flower types that are simple in design and make a statement.

this picture doesn't do the colors justice like the below ones, but the yellow is a canvas material and the others are chiffon-like in texture.

I was very happy with the yellow poppy, but not with the gray

a little more experimenting is all i need


  1. Gorgeous fabric! I'm impressed by DIY projects...excited to see what else you come up with!

  2. I didn't know you weren't married and now I can't be your friend anymore.

    :) lol. I am excited for you, the colors are beautiful. Ours was almost 8 years ago so I can't be of much help, but I can tell you it's worth every moment of stress.

  3. hahaha, Diana, unfortunately you have to be my friend because I am married! We had a small wedding last summer and are having a reception this summer in my hometown :).
