Wedding crafting

I can't believe it, but our wedding is about a month away! Since I haven't really talked about it at all on blog, I figured I would share with you a bunch of the more aesthetic parts of the planning.

We found a venue (the reception place is across the street from this lake),
Lake Calhoun, 27 Sept 2006 (1)

picked autumn colors for the flowers,

found a dress that flattered the three bridesmaids (in "blueberry"),
From the Dessy Group website
figured out what the groomsmen will wear (blue shirts that match the bridesmaids' dresses with black ties and no jackets)

figured out what the groom will wear (the same blue shirt with an ivory tie to match my dress and a vest)

sent the invites (I really can't recommend Stelie Designs enough. She was amazing to work with and I love love the final product.)

and now, I'm getting into the "arts and crafts" portion of my to-do list:
programs, placecards, guestbook cards, etc.

If I have enough time and motivation, there may even be traveling art kits for the kids who are attending, but we'll just have to see how it goes.


  1. Everything looks lovely Kris (especially love the invitations) - can't wait to see pictures after the big day!

  2. Wow! Gorgeous invitations! I'm so happy that you are getting a little break to focus on the wedding. Your bridesmaids dresses are gorgeous, too.

  3. Looks like all plans are going well. The invites really catch the eye-great choice of wording. Blessings on the project and the participants and a good day weather-wise are wished for you.

  4. It is going to be beautiful! I am very happy for you :)

  5. It all looks great! I really like the orange flowers with the blue dresses. It will be a such a wonderful day for you and Jon. =]

  6. it is all going to be gorgeous.

    I LOVED our wedding... all I can say is to enjoy it!

  7. Your wedding is going to be amazing. What a beautiful location! Gorgeous flowers, invitations... and you are so on top of it with the rest too (I remember staying up working on programs until the wee hours the night before we were supposed to fly home for the ceremony... I don't recommend it!) :)
