Behind the Scenes Wedding Details

Today I'm sharing some more behind the scenes shots of the details I'm putting together for an upcoming May wedding. I already posted these pictures of the pennant flags and place cards and a few months ago I even shared the custom burlap banner I made for the bridal shower. So you have come along on this journey a bit with me, seeing all the handmade details as they develop. This morning I took some pictures of the programs and menus. The menus are done (big thanks to my Mom for tying most of those bows) and the programs are just about finished. Just a few more days of work.

Here are the printed programs, ready to go into the burlap covers.

This is a small stack of bound programs. They are all hand-bound with pink embroidery floss. All they need now are the muslin labels.

When they are all finished, the programs will have these muslin labels attached to the front. The labels have the couple's names and wedding date stamped onto them. I think these will be such a nice keepsake for the guests. And to the right is my Trader Joe's bag stuffed with completed programs. There is probably 75-80 in there.

And the big box of menus. We had to make 200 of these!

Everything looks great in my home but it will look even better at the wedding mixed in with all the rest of the decor. I cannot wait to see the professional photos from this event.

What are you busy working on this week?  


My Week Through Instagram: Week Seventeen

Ya, so I'm finally getting around to blogging this week. Not doing too good so far but I have double posts coming at you today to make up for it. First I'll start with my recap of last week, week seventeen of 2012. Last week was nonstop wedding preparation for my big deadline coming up and I'm finishing up little things this week too. The end is in site and I cannot wait to see it all completed and be able to turn it over to my bride. I'm so happy with how things are turning out.

Sunday: I decided to start the day off right and scramble up some eggs with red peppers for myself. Freshly squeezed orange juice too. It was so yummy! And it really doesn't take that long. I should do it more often.

Monday: This is a mini peek at a project I'll be able to share with you all soon. Do you recognize that font? It's my new favorite thing: Jacques and Gilles!

Tuesday: Busy days call for easy hair. I threw my locks up in a top knot for ease while working. My hair has gotten so long (it hasn't been this long in years...it's usually around shoulder length) and it occasionally gets in the way of things.

Wednesday: Some days a mid-day cereal treat is in order. And then other days a cinammon cereal treat is in order.

Thursday: I cut out this little vinyl heart and stuck it to my studio window. It looks like my heart is floating off in the sky.  

Friday: These are the menus I designed and am currently putting together. The food for this wedding looks quite delicious so every time I read it I get hungry. 

Saturday: On my walk I looked up to see these little airplane streaks. They were so vibrant in the deep, blue sky. 

So that was my week seventeen. What did yours look like?
