12 week count down to the wedding

The weeks are hurtling towards our wedding at a rapid pace. The past few weeks have been a blur of dress buying, suit hiring, bridesmaid dress commissioning, and of course, wedding invitation making.

We got the bulk of our invites out two weeks ago, and now I’m poised at the laptop and letterbox awaiting RSVPs. We have almost all of them in now, and have more coming than we were expecting. There’s a possibility we might even have more than the ceremony room holds…

We both have large families so haven’t been able to invite as many friends as I would have wanted to the day time, which is a shame, but I hope those that receive evening invitations will understand that we had to give family priority.

Next on my wedding craft agenda are the evening invites, I’ll be designing them this week and then will be getting the glue out again for some more making sessions. I then need to do bus tickets, place settings and the seating plan. I’m looking forward to doing them, but I’ll probably be tearing my hair out at getting them done.

I haven’t found that perfect pair of wedding shoes yet, its proving to be a much harder task than finding the dress!

Crafting prompt week 5 – stickers

Daisy adores stickers, my house is covered in them (and usually my coat, bag and shoes too). We don’t usually do anything with the stickers though, but last week I made Daisy have quiet time and we sat and did the sticker workbook together.

But this isn’t crafting I hear you say… OK, I’ll show you what Phil and I have been crafting this week…

We’ve been making our wedding invitations. I used gold ‘wedding invitation’ stickers on navy blue card, and used one of my heart punches for the navy blue hearts. We bought some nice cream printer paper and printed the inside to the invites and our separate wedding information sheets.

I’ll also be making place cards, table plan, wedding favours and bus tickets!
