What a productive weekend!! You’ve already heard about my new dress which I’m SO super excited about, but this past weekend also held quite a bit of productivity!
We found and purchased Mr. Socks’ wedding ring! It was a fairly painless process, and he ended up with this very nice, manly, wonderful piece! It’s 14K white gold and we love it! The sample in the store fit him perfectly and it was cheaper than ordering a ring in, so we got to take it home that same-day! The jeweler also steam-cleaned my e-ring and right hand tanzanite ring—I can’t believe how much more they sparkle with his cleaner than they do with my cleaners!
I couldn’t resist a mini-photo shoot with some fresh produce from our garden and a few succulents we have in the kitchen:
Is it snack time yet? I might have to chomp a few of those tomatoes when I get home”¦
Another thing we got started on was a DIY project I recently decided on taking on. Remember these little beauties?
Well, I decided that I NEEDED these for all of our guests. My plan is to pin them to little cards with each guests’ name and table number-escort cards, favors, and adorableness all in one! Unfortunately, we could not fit these into our budget to have Emersonmade make them, so I scoured the internet for tutorials. Here’s the result so far of my hard work:
Not as good as Emersonmade, of course, so I’ll still go through her for the bouts for the guys. I’m still trying to figure out the right technique if anyone has any tips!
Tonight, we’re printing out samples of our invite with different papers we like. I’ll let you know how that goes and will soon reveal our invites!
Do you take advantage of your weekends to get wedding stuff done?
