I realised I hadn't shown you the invites (although some of you might have seen the terrible pics dadsy posted on his facebook of mumsy and I making them!)
I know you don't get too much of an idea of it from there, but I love them! Youngest bro helped me pick out the paper, and we basically identified what I hpe will be the theme for the wedding: purple, green and birds. The writing is on a lovely ivory paper with a swirls and birds patten in the background (ignoring the fact that the ink didn't stink so much to the shinier swirls and birds!), and the side border was made of this paper:
It looks lovelier in person, you'll have to trust me!
*** If Magf, gf1 or gf2 are reading this, stop now! Check back in after the party!***
My engagement party is on the same day as gf1's sisters 18th, so she's coming and leaving a little earlier than the others, so I thought it would be nice to catch gf1, gf2 and Magf togeher - we're having famliy come over from 1, and friends over from 4.
I've been reading a LOT of wedding stuff online, and thought it would be nice to formally present my bridesmaids to be with a little gift, seeing as I haven't 'officially' told or asked them.
Here's what they get:
And now you know what the initials of my party will be! Shh!
They're little sparkly keyrings that I thought were cute, and I bought these little boxes to put them in:
They were less than three dollars each, and cute, and kinda purple. So I HAD to get them. You undertand, right?
I handwrote a little note on some of the leftover side-strips from the invites - you can tell I am destined for greatness via my terrible handwriting.
Ooh! I wrote them with the spiffy new pen that The Hun's parents brought me back from jolly old London!
I shoved the keyrings in the boxes on top of some green crepe paper and covered it with scatter confetti hearts before I put the little note in on top:
Ta da! I'm not a good ribbon tyer, but whatevs.
I also wanted to show you the lovely wedding planner that one of my ex-first-housemates bought me!
It may not look like much, but it is so lovely inside - I had a cheapie one that came with a magazine, but I wasn't very excited about that one. This one, I love - see:
And it wasn't until I took the photo of my covering up the names (that I've already written in) that I realised I may not have shown you my beautiful ring until now?
