mums & plums


I decided to go all Elise Blaha on you and give you an update inspo board style.
1. plum colored Paper Source envelopes for my invitations. GEEKING OUT OVER THESE!
2/3. mums rubber stamps from Paper Source for my Save the Dates, reception inserts, guest book, and wedding album!
4. Bridesmaid dresses in Sangria from David's Bridal. This looks SO good on my sister and I'm sure on all my other girls too!
5. my wedding earrings that i THINK I'm going to wear. Borrowed from my friend Mandy who is a bridesmaid. These are her wedding earrings she's wearing in her own wedding in July! They will be my "something borrowed!"
6. mum embossed wedding invitations from Paper Source again.

These are some other images from various sources (I just dragged them off FOREVER ago, so if you know the sources, PLEASE TELL!) that are inspiring my wedding design. I have a lot to do on the reception, but it's all coming together slowly!





The feel for my wedding is very light-hearted, but still classy. I have a LOT of ideas in the works. Over break I got a lot done:
*fitted/purchased foundations for under my gown
*shoe-shopped and bookmarked some possibilities
*bought all silverware for the reception
*priced all linens for reception
*found invitations
*sketched idea for Save the Date cards
*priced custom mints from a local Candy Store boutique

and in the coming weeks, I have MUCH to do!
*actually design Save the Dates
*order ink pads for Save the Dates
*shop for coin envelopes for guest book
*continue shoe shopping
*get my groomsmen fitted
*create registries
*samples from bakery
*alert bridesmaids of dress change/fittings

I looooove planning my wedding and I hope things continue to work out as they have been! I can't wait to share more in the weeks to come! We're a little under 9 months away!
