Handmade Wedding Update

With just three over three months to go til the wedding, I am not nearly as far along as I would like to be. Part of the trouble has been that Brock is in his final semester at school, and has been completely swamped with course work. He graduates on Saturday, and then he will be a documented Physicist, so that’s pretty cool. Then we can take, I hope, more trips out to the farm to get the major whosits and whatsits and cleanups done over the next couple of months.

For now, we are trying to workout the finer details of the (very spare, very non-traditional) ceremony. And I am attempting to suss out the schedule so I can write the invitations and make all the inserts.

What I do have is this:

This is my wedding box. So far, it has favors, invitations, thank you notes, and table decorations. For all of that I am $200 in. I hit a killer sale at Michael’s one day (while I was shopping for work–shh! don’t tell). I just turned around and there was all this wonderfully terrifying circus themed stuff in the $1-$2 range. Needless to say, I stocked up. You can easily see the table decorations in the box. The base for the invitations are the yellow things with the elephants. My favorite, perhaps are the really silly mask fans.

They are the most terrifying of all.

But I also think they lend themselves to silliness. And I really, really want this shindig to be fun.

Next time, I’ll show you the handmade part of the invitations.
