Hello there! Just wanted to let you know that we survived the wedding and everything went beautifully:) We only had one panic attack on the day of the wedding. The alteration lady's daughter was also getting married on the same day. Our daughter Olivia went to pick up her dress on Saturday and there was a sign on the door that said Shop closed for Wedding. Why she waited til Saturday to pick up her dress is crazy...but she said the alteration lady was going to call her when it was ready. Apparently she never did. We were able to get a hold of her, and as soon as my husband said his name she said, "Oh my God, Olivia didn't pick up her dress!" So she was gracious and met us at the shop to get the dress. Whew! Until 5 minutes later when Emily called and said, "Sondra went to pick up her dress and the shop was closed!" Ugghhh... thankfully, she was still at the shop and was able to get the second dress as well!
You probably remember the favors that I posted earlier. 250 of these little gems. Thankfully, I had a wonderful friend who cut out all of these tops for me-stripes , no less!
My dear mother made I don't know how many batches of Chex Mix for the guests to munch on til the wedding party arrived, which turned out to be a really good thing, because the limo had a flat on the way to picking them up from the church! So we had a bit of a late start, but everything worked out in the end. We didn't get many pictures because I'm still hobbliong around with my gimp foot! No improvement yet:( But we'll have lots from the photographer next week hopfully, so stay tuned!!!
I also wanted to share this month's My Paper Pumpkin with you. I really like this one for a guy-perfect for a graduation. I didn't have to make any changes or add any embellishments-perect as it is! Love when that happens!
I did spiff up the envie a bit with a piece of Epic Day Washi Tape and stamped the chevron from Oh , Hello to finish it off. Can't wait to see what surprise I'll get in the mail next month:)
I'm off to get started prepping for our first Card Night in awhile-excited!!! Make sure to check back starting October 4th for the cards we're making this month. But be sure to stop back before than for lots of wedding pics! Thanks so much for stopping by and for all the happy wedding wishes:)
