Wow, wedding stuff is so time consuming! I have never really been interested in this sort of thing, so it's a lot of learning. So we have found our venue (and the new vocabulary, lol) and booked, chosen the date, ordered save the date magnets (an idea I blatantly stole from a friend who is getting married in November) and now address labels that match. I'm exhausted...but that might be from substitute teaching every weekday since the strike is over and then working Fri- Sun at the restaurant. Enough whining, on to excitement.
I did manage to email the bridesmaids this week to begin doing dress stuff. We are going down to NOLA around Halloween for fun and to do photographer/flowers/cake/menu/hotel stuff. Driving, since we were too irresponsible to remember to buy plane tickets before they became a tra-billion dollars, whoops. I want to make a muslin so that Stephanie can try it on in person before I make the final version.
My mom and Vicky live in my hometown, so my mom agreed to make Vicky's. She is being adorably nervous about it, even though she is a much more careful, precise seamstress than I am! lol Anna was going to be my third bridesmaid, but she is having a baby at the end of Feb and the wedding is mid-March. Shockingly, she doesn't want to travel across the country with a newborn baby! :)
So, I think the bridesmaids will be in the Cambie dress, which will be adorable! I have an uncut copy, so I can trace them off to make both dresses. Won't that be cute?!
I am going to go to Vogue Fabrics or Fishman's and buy some nice fabric. View A would only need 3.5 yards of 60 inch fabric. That would still make them waayyy cheaper
And on a parting note, here is our save the date magnet! Isn't it cute?I scraped together about 25 pictures of the both of us for the eight years we have been dating where no one is making a derp face. Then we narrowed them down and ta-da!
