I feel like time has been wearing spoilers, and I don’t know where the time is going, and how we’re on another Wednesday, on another week. But it’s time, it’s time for another edition of Wedding Wednesday, where you get to hear about all the crap I did in the past week to make this wedding actually happen. So, a few things, that I’ve gotten done in the time that I’ve seen you.
So I started last week by going to the paper store for Save-the-Dates and things, and while I was there, I picked up some things to craft some little cards and treats for the Bridesmaids and Groomsmen, who don’t really know who they are as of yet, because I sent the thingies out yesterday. The Groomsmen’s card was pretty easy to do, only took some craft paper, some blank cards, some felt-tipped pens, and some little crafty things that were groom-themed to glue onto the cards, plus some twine from the jewelry store. These are more for my piece of mind because we gave them to one of the groomsmen and I literally saw him shove it into the pocket of his cargo shorts.
These little numbers were fun to make, and I did them for my bridesmaids. I sent them out today, and I totally hope that they say yes!
This project literally took forever, but I’m loving the look of what we can do with these. This one was just a practice, and thank you Nicole from The Girl who Ran Everywhere for helping me, a complete stranger, with this. She has been an absolute dream, and I don’t know you, but I am so indebted to you girl. This one took floral wire, buttons, and about 5 hours to get done. Like I said, just a practice, so I’m loving the way it’s going. One practice down, about 8 or so more to go. WHEW!
Fun Wedding Facts
- Crafting has been amazing, and I love it. I need to quit my job and blog, craft, and work out full time.
- I had my first wedding-related sticker shock today, when I headed to FedEx to send some stuff to the bridesmaids.
I’d really rather not get into how much all of this costed me, but suffice it to say that it cost me way too much, and I need to be super super careful about how I send stuff. Seriously, I almost fainted in that FedEx.
Okay, so that’s it on wedding updates on this wedding Wednesday, but I’ve gotten so much done!
Now I need a favor from you guys.
If anyone has buttons or brooches around their house and they would like to be a little piece of my wedding, please contact me through here and send those buttons/brooches my way! Can’t wait to hear from you guys!

This had me dying! Some people just don’t appreciate all the hard work that goes into making life fancy 😉
Ugh, and you know what? One of my girlfriends told me don’t bother with making anything for them, so I really only did it for my peace of mind.
I love this!
