After struggling all last week to print out our damn programs, only to discover there was an issue with the supplied online template, we finally figured out a way around the problem and finished printing everything Friday night. On Saturday my bridesmaid Colleen and her bf came over and after having a fabulous lunch together, JD and Kristian left to go look at guns and Colleen and I assembled the programs. It was SOOO much quicker having her there to help especially since I despise tying bows and she is the official bow master. I love the way they turned out.
I used the programs from Michael's that correspond to my invitations. I really didn't want to use a product from the same company that made the shoddy invites I ended up with but I wanted everything to flow and I figured since they weren't going in the mail we shouldn't (hopefully) have any offsetting issues. There are 4 stacked sheets, including a sheet listing the wedding party, one listing the ceremony order and the last page where we put some thank you shouts to friends and family.
My mom found these super cute baskets at the dollar store! Have I mentioned my love of the dollar store yet? I think the programs look great in these baskets.
I just LOVE these types of pictures!
I also made a matching sign to put by our guest book.
I also finished printing off all the escort cards last night, but forgot to take a picture. That was actually the easiest of all my printing/DIY projects and I finished doing that in about 2 hours. What took the most time was actually typing up everyone's name and table name into the template to print off.
In even more exciting news I had my FINAL dress fitting yesterday. My dress looks and fits amazing. In fact because of all the padding she had to add to the bust I look like I have HUGE boobs now. It's awesome. The only thing left for her to do is sew on the hooks for my bustle and make my veil but I don't need to come back for that. My mom will just pick everything up for me when it's done and keep it at her house until the wedding.
**Funny/disgusting side note- On Saturday around 5pm I pointed out to Kristian that in exactly two weeks from that moment we be almost ready to walk down the aisle and his response "in exactly two weeks I'm going to have massive diarrhea" Yes girls, he's ALL mine. Be Jealous!
