The Invitation.......

Today I woke up and realized it is 3 months and 12 days until the wedding.........Eeeeekkkkkkk, that scared the crap out of me, not because things are not getting done but, because it seems like just the other day I had a year to plan.......anyway I decided to show you some of the things that we have done, and see what you think......And can I tell you how much fun this is, I am having a ball!!!!! These are the invitations, yes, they are all done, and just need to be assembled and mailed. I love them, Katie and I did these ourselves and we are so proud of them. We have a wonderful store here in Buford called Archivers, and it sells all the things you need to put these beauties together. They are the most wonderful bronze and papaya (or terra cotta as we call it). The printing is all in brown and we embossed everything in terra cotta. We lined the envelopes and this is how they look when you open it........
I love the photo stamps you can get now from zazzles or stamps.com they are just to die for!!!! We also made a trip this weekend to the gift show at the Mart, and found flowers and the most wonderful iron pieces for the reception. Here are flowers we found for the bouquet........


Gerbera daisies one of my favorites......
Of course, sunflowers will be centerpieces on the tables and everywhere........
And look at the fabulous iron pumkins we found with candle holders they are from 14 inches tall and smaller......

Can you believe we found this darling carriage??? I love it!!!!!
This lantern was exactly what I wanted for some of the tables. How gorgeous is that?? It is about 28 inches tall and I will put bittersweet and leaves around it. Love It!!!!!!
Could not resist these great fall candle holder wreaths with all the berries and pine cones. It is all coming together so great. Let me know what you think. Cheers, Lauri
