Well my wedding is in just two short months. It was originally planned for May, but my fiance and I decided that we’d rather my sister didn’t go into labor at the reception, so we’ve moved it to March. And I’m totally fine. And everything is under control. And I’m breathing…
And I’m a little overwhelmed!
I was doing fine until I made the to do list this morning. It has 50-some items on it! As Connor would say, “WHAT THE HECK, MIKE?!?!”
But it’s ok…it’s ok…shhhhhh…..it’s going to be fine….
So you’ll excuse me if my posts are somewhat sporadic for the next two months, I’ve got a few things to do….
At least I can cross one thing off my list this morning! The invitations are done!
We’ve decided on a book theme for the wedding, since the fiance and I are both big readers. The motto of the reception is “A New Chapter” since this is a new beginning for both of us. We’re moving away from the past and starting the next phase in our lives. Yay!
Everything at the reception will be done in book pages, typewriter type, and pops of color here and there. Since I’m a librarian, library items will be a constant.
Take the invitations for example:
I used library due date book cards and card pockets (the card pockets cost $10 and the cards were $14.00). Based on research, I designed the invitations myself. Here’s the result:
I really love them! Plus they cost me about $0.50 each! Perfect!
So that’s done…sort of of. I just need to create the labels, stuff the envelopes and get them in the mail. Easy peasy!
Then I can move on to the other 49 items on my list.
