Did you think I could really stay away?

By this time you must think I'm a little crazy, but if you've ever planned a wedding then you know in the last month you are.
I've been missing you all a ton and have been wanting to write a post and while I'm waiting in between DIY projects for the wedding I thought I'd stop by to show you what I've been working on.
If you follow me on Twitter you'll know that today was full of wedding errands. I dropped off color samples to our awesome cake baker who is going to make a mini cake just to make sure he decorates it the way we want! (Free cake? Heck yeah!) Knowing you cuties you probably want to see our inspiration and here it is!

After I dropped off our colors I had to to to our city's Board of Works meeting to petition to have a port-a-potty & grill outside, luckily they approved it and now we'll be able to feed our guests! Hooray!
After that I came home and worked on some more wedding stuff. (I am so lucky to have Mondays off!) We're midway through our program design and today I made a garland to hang over our cake!
Sorry for the crappy iPhone picture, our regular camera was out of reach

This evening Jus & I are going wine tasting with our parents to ensure we'll be able to give our guests the yummiest wine. The rest of the week I'm meeting with our florist, getting my hair trial, starting to decorate our reception space and next weekend is my bachelorette party!
But before I leave you for the day I have to give you a little sneak peek at our invitations!
We used metallic sand envelopes & vintage stamps to set the tone

Did you know that if you send the President an invitation he'll send you a congratulatory letter?

So what are you up to these days?
