We were at the beach all weekend, and since we had to work on Tuesday, we had to do fireworks on Sunday, which meant Kyle had to go buy them himself and set them off at the beach. Dan and Mia were there as well and Dan took over lighting, which was the death-defying part, and then we went home on Monday. Monday night we were both totally pooped, so we passed out at about 9 PM, didn't catch the real fireworks.
Didn't miss a thing, we had a pretty fabulous weekend, and I got to work on my tan :)
I just wanted to stop by to say I found this tutorial online for making maps for your invitation suite and while it was not an idea I was seriously considering, it looked fun, so I did it:
Is the map just cute?? It's got all our colors in it... it makes me fidget a little though because it reminds me that we HAVE to start working on invitations... If I'm making them all, and they're going to be more intensive than the Save the Dates, I'll need more than a month probably to put them together... scared *eee
Anyway, I'll figure that out later. In the meantime, I am obsessed with and must start working on my fabric backdrop.
Yeah, I have five months still, but I keep seeing renditions of it and I must make it now!!!
I keep rolling it around in my head loving the idea of it so much and thinking of enhancements to it, and it just makes me need to see it in real life... NOW!
Can you imagine them poking out here and there and maybe on the sides of the alter? And maybe with some little battery-powered tea lights? And can you imagine how they'd be able to be repurposed at random spots in the reception?!?!
Yeah, I can, so I'm super psyched to get DIY-ing. Also, Kyle initially suggested Japanese lanterns, you know, the paper ones. While it's a good idea, I think this will be cheaper, more unique, more fun, and something I might actually get him to help me with, so that he knows that I do respect his ideas, and think they're great, but I'm just enhancing it a bit... While that explanation was not a great one, trust me when I say I showed him this picture and he said he really liked it!
I also considered... dare I say it?... Chicken wire:
- Hair accessories
- Hanging string orbs
