3rd meeting with Mellow Oaks

Our third meeting with the venue took place on Valentine’s Day! And boy, was it a fun one 😀

We did the mockup of our tables and discussed the decor, flowers and food. With our dark-blue, cream and gold colourscheme, I could never have imagined how wonderful it all came together. I am super excited and sure wish I could share the mockup photos here, but alas, we want our guests to see it for the first time on our special day!

We received a booklet of food choices, so I don’t know how we are going to choose out of all that mouthwatering dishes 😛  Luckily our menu must only be submitted two weeks in advance, so we have plenty of time drooling over our choices..

With 74 days to go, we can now also tick of the flowers and decor! Leaving us with the favours, table names and wishing well to be finished, and the dresses offcourse!

Talking about the dresses, we are going for our measurements tomorrow night.. whoop whoop !!

With everything just about falling into place now, I still can’t shake the feeling that I’m missing something.. Hopefully after our visit to China Mall this coming weekend, that feeling will dissapear, as I’ll be getting the last of the paper and embellishments needed for the favours, table names and wishing well!!

China Mall Success!!

We went to China Mall this past Sunday and it was NOT in vain!

I have FINALLY found the blue cardboard I was looking for.. YAY! So we can finally start making the invites and then start working on the favours. I am super excited as I have made a final sample of the invite design last night and we are both happy with it 😀

shiny gold card..

.. and no, unfortunately I don’t mean credit card 😛

I finally managed to scan in a sample of the gold cardboard I’ll be using for the making of the favours! Too bad the scan doesn’t do the paper justice..

Tomorrow I’ll be scouring some craft shops for the decor and for the rest of the day will be doing something non-wedding related: scrapbooking.. YAY!! :mrgreen:

darn this winter..

This cold is really putting a hamper on the wedding planning!

I really want to start doing my invites, but have not found the right paper yet 😦

Also didn’t feel like shopping around in this cold, so hopefully the sun will find it’s way back home to Sunny SA and thaw out these legs of mine so I can go SHOPPING!!

There is a plan B up my sleeve if I can’t find exactly what I’m looking for 😉

As for the favours, I seem to keep on changing my mind about the decorating of them, luckily there is still a lot of time to get them done. I have already started drawing and cutting out the templates, did about 24 so far.. Still about 100 to go 😕
