I often complain that when I got married it was Pre-Pinterest- and in fact Pre-Interent -but the reality is I might have been overwhelmed if I had this unlimited source in inspiration. We got married in Michigan but I planned the entire wedding myself while I was living in Texas. Thankfully Martha Stewart had just published her Weddings book which was my best resource. In 1994, she didn't even have the Wedding magazine yet. Even without a lot of resources I still managed to make my own cake, have the dress and bridesmaid dresses made (I chose fabrics and styles), made the paper for the invitations, and made cookies for the reception and made all the other decisions myself. Can you imagine how over the top my crafting would have been if I had the recourse and the skills that I have 18 years later? I promise to share pictures from my wedding and all the projects I worked on but this post is about B's wedding.
The barn has twinkle lights from a previous wedding so we don't have to string all those but we still have a lot of work to do to make the space look like a wedding. And the lack of electricity and need for generators will also be a factor.
I spent all of yesterday and today trying to find and order all the seam binding, tissue paper, cardstock and patterned cardstock that I need for the projects. It is exhausting. I don't have a local scrapbooking store so I have to spend hours on websites trying to find what I need and hope the colors are true enough. All while trying to get the best deal for my bride. I will post photos as the products arrive.
