So, my reception is in 2.5 months. I'm like freaking out. But we've gotten a lot done! I think by next Tuesday, we'll have all of our contracts in place. Then it will just be about decorations! I have a few ideas of what I want to do... Hopefully there will be enough time (and money) to get it all done.
I really want bunting flags around the courtyard. I plan to head to different places to gather all kinds of fabric that match the color scheme. It's going to take a lot sewing (and a lot of helpful hands), but it will be the main decoration with lights!
I love simple flowers in glass bottles. I ordered some of the new 100 year anniversary Ball mason jars to use as centerpieces. I plan to go to thrift stores and other places for more glass bottles. The cigar box centerpieces are amazing! I have a few boxes, just need to get a few more. I do need to find a florist, or at least somewhere I can get pretty succulents and tall flowers.
Another thing I need to get working on are favors. I love the idea of small succulents and small jars of honey! Jonny also wants to have cigars available. Goodness, need to get working. I'm so looking forward to the reception - to enjoy it all and also to be done planning. :D
