60 days! Eppp!

60 days…. When did that happen?

Small Refresher, Jake and Alexis from Colorado, getting married in Grand Junction (about 5 hours from where we live in Colorado) all teams got thrown out of the window a while ago and when asked I usually say it’s a “crazy, comic book, geek, Greek, 50’s, DIY, love fest at a vineyard”

And for a recap:

Post 3: http://weddingplans.livejournal.com/19787183.html (Venue, Dresses, Shoes, STD’s)

And if you are addicted to Pintrest like me, here is my wedding board : http://pinterest.com/tragickore/june-24-2012-inspiration/

Things I have done :
Venue Booked
Caterer booked
Photographer booked
STD and Invites have been sent out and RSVP’s are trickling in (it’s a destination wedding so I sent the invites out early)
Have dress it is currently being altered
Most BM’s and GM’s have their clothing.
Ceremony music
Rooms booked for before wedding for FH and I
BM gifts (necklaces and hair pieces for the wedding)

Things I’m in the middle of doing :
Guest book ... About 70% done
Card box … About 98% done
Center pieces … About 30% done
Programs … About 90% done
Ceremony wording … about 70% done
Boutonnieres … about 20% done
Cupcake stands … about 50% done

Things I have not done :
Booked rooms for after wedding
Wedding bands
Unity Ceremony
Wine Ceremony Box (but I maid these last two things FH’s responsibility and he promised to pick them up after next pay day)
Losts of other things I’m sure….

And now it’s time for PICTURES! (Programs, jewelry, bouquet, BM gifts, Guest Book, Card Box)

First is first, my jewelry has changed since my original post about it and is now all custom pieces by the wonderfully talented BellLili (http://www.etsy.com/shop/BellaLili) also these are her pictures of the pieces and they are more stunning in real life (seriously, everyone should buy from her)




Then For my BM’s I got a fantastic deal on their necklaces, buy one get one 50% off, its all costume jewelry but I think it looks super fantastic

And my BM’s headbands, I love them! They are from the wonderful JanineBasil (http://www.etsy.com/shop/JanineBasil)

And one of the seller’s pic for how they look on

Ok now this is my bouquet made from comic book paper flowers from bookishbride (http://www.etsy.com/shop/bookishbride) and some wooden smelly flowers I found at TJ Maxx (I think)
The Bouts will be made from the same comic book flowers, with some lace and colored peacock feather accents (my goal is for each bout to look different)

The programs I shameless stole from some post on Weddingbee ( I Think) but I love them !

Our guest book I am still working on, but we are modeling it after the Adventure book from UP and I think I did a pretty good job! Anyway we are also gonna scrap book on the inside as well as have places for people to sign ^.^

The card box is easy, we are using this paper vintage suit case we found at a craft store and leaving it open with glitter letters that say “Cards” handing from the lid

Biggest concerns right now:
Where to get hair, make up and nails done. Since this is a destination wedding I can’t go in for a trial but even that is not bothering me as much as my wedding is a Sunday wedding and EVERY salon I have called for far is closed on Sunday. Grrrrrr!

And the Rehearsal dinner, I’ve been doing the match and it is going to cost me like 400 bucks to feed 30+ people dinner… somehow I kninda forgot about that dinner and thus forgot to set aside the money… so that will be interesting ...

And one you ladies might be able to help with...

Show me your Reception Dance Mix's!

everything looks really cool, and i have been to grand junction, co! but... why does the program say "alexis and joshua" but reference your fiance as "jake" elsewhere? is jake a nickname for joshua in this case?

His name is Joshua Jacob, and usually goes by Jake but at the top it just didn't look right space wise with have Jake and Alexis and Joshua have the same number of letters so it works better I think. *shruggs*

makes sense. i was just not comprehending that one, haha.

Very cool bouquet!
Apr. 26th, 2012 05:50 pm (UTC)
Thanks! i really had fun making it.

I may be minorly stealing your programs. Not exactly the same, but I really like yours. They are cute!!!
Apr. 26th, 2012 02:28 am (UTC)
Go for it! I stole them kinda so you can steal them kinda again!
Apr. 26th, 2012 03:29 am (UTC)
cute stuff. If I read correctly, however, "beyond" is misspelled in the bottom of your program.
Apr. 26th, 2012 06:31 am (UTC)
Another typo to be aware of... "And Jake's (hopefully not to hyper) nieces and nephews" should read "And Jake's (hopefully not too hyper) nieces and nephews" (two "o"s in too). Otherwise very cute!
Apr. 26th, 2012 05:50 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much! will go fix that now!

I am so glad you have not done the big print job because I saw those two and another:

You mean more to us THAN you will ever know.

Making grammar corrections without people looking at me like they want to throw something at my head makes me feel kind of giddy! :D

hahah, yeah, I haven't made the big print yet (a few test prints to make sure the colors show up on the cream paper) beacuse I know I need a proof reader, grammar has never been my strong suit. So i actually very much appreciate the help! looking so long at one document in Photoshop let me unable to see any mistakes, even to the point of " Is that really how my name is spelled?"

Grammar can be tough, so many people have issues. My family is full of teachers, so I got a really solid education both in and out of school... in other words, it was pounded into my brain with a sledge hammer. ;)
