last weekend

It's been hard to plan my wedding being apart from my family, but with my mom and sister being so incredible, it's still been fun. I took on the responsibility of taking of the invitations from designing them to printing them to assembling to sending. It was a big duty, but I did it (with some help, of course!). A week ago I finally had everything ready to go: printed stationery, ribbon, engagement photos. And Saturday was the day to assemble.


I spent all day working on these.

I cut ribbon. I stuffed stationery jackets. I counted. Everything. At one point I opened a package from Mom and Emily and took a break to eat these Canadian Smarties (they're similar to M&Ms).

And another break for a Big Gulp. Obviously.

Then I stuffed the prepared announcements into the envelopes.

And stamped them. And sent them out.

Phew.

In other wedding planning progress, I picked up my dress! It's hanging in my closet. Right now. I look at it all the time. And I giggle because I'm so excited.

And I think it's time for a countdown update:
  • 5 weeks from today Josh and I seal the deal
  • that's 35 days
  • 6 days until I go to Portland for the weekend
  • 3 weeks until I move my stuff to Oregon
This is big. Getting married is big. But this is right. Josh is right. I'm so excited for this new part of my life--my life with Josh. Forever.

I got your invite today and it is ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS! Seriously, I could go on and on about them. The color, the design, everything. Everything.

I love this. I love weddings. And you. So happy for all the great things going on!

And the giggling over the dress thing? My FAVORITE. I may or may not have tried mine on for my MIL/SIL the day it came in the mail.

When you get a chance, you know cause you have nothing better to do, can we get a close-up of the invite? From what I can see in your blog they look beautiful!

I got my announcement today and thought it was lovely.

Wow 35 days, that's so exciting!

We need to let people know that some of the reception invites appear to be sticking to the announcements!

Other than that small glitch, I LOVE them, too!

Charlotte, the invitations turned out beautifully! I only wish I had been in town to help you assemble them, that's a big job.
