We’re quickly approaching crunch time, and lately a lot of little tasks have been popping up. Here’s what we’ve been up to…
Sent rehearsal dinner invitations
Y’all know by now I love me some paper products, and for awhile I was sort of designing rehearsal invites that would match our entire suite. I wasn’t feeling very inspired, and I counted how many we actually needed to send—just 12—and ordered some. I picked this design from Wedding Paper Divas and was pleased with the quality (and price):

I felt a little guilty for not matching it (crazy, I know), but I figured if anything didn’t need to match, it’d be the rehearsal invites.
Started making table numbers
Remember this inspiration post? I decided to do something like the table numbers for ours. Originally, I thought I’d use maps from the locations we’d traveled (we’ve gone to as many places as we’ll need tables), but again…I got a little lazy, and it seemed like a small detail that wouldn’t really be noticed. I got those 99 cent Ikea frames and used map paper I had left over from my invitation envelope liners.
I’m planning to cut out numbers in the watercolored paper left over from the invitation belly bands. It was nice to re-use some of that stuff and I think these will be a little pop of color on an otherwise mercury glass covered centerpiece.
Finalized our ceremony details
We met again with our officiant after sending him our “stories”—how we met, how we felt about our wedding, stuff like that. We picked out some readings, figured out who was sitting where, and timed the whole thing. Big to-do off the list.
Got my wedding band
Simple. But I love it.
With my E-ring.

Man, I need to get my ring cleaned.
GOT OUR WEDDING LICENSE!
Both parties don’t have to be present in DC, and my new job is across the street from the courthouse, so this was really more of a lunchtime errand than anything romantic. Still…things are happening!
What little things have you been knocking off your to-do list lately?
