Countdown: 236 Days

Joseph and I made some progress this holiday weekend.  It's amazing how much you can get accomplished when your brain isn't drained from working all day.  

First, we nailed down the guest list.  So at least I have a guest count.  Now comes the hard part - getting addresses.  

Second, I did some centerpiece prototypes.  I took some pics and will post as soon as I'm finished debating whether it sucks or not.  I love the mason jars with the stones at the bottom.  Some will hold candles and some will hold single-stem flowers.  I'm doing little paintings on canvas for the table numbers, and that's the part I'm not sure about.  It's so hard to tell whether my own work is great or terrible.  Oh, and I found a girl on craiglist selling a lot of mason jars that she used for her own wedding.  Keeping my fingers crossed that they're still available.  I'd be getting them for less than 50 cents a piece.  

Lastly, we chose a linen.  It's an ivory embroidered overlay with ivory satin tablecloth underneath.  Chairs will be natural wood folding chairs.

Here's the linen:

I'm still hoping to make a final decision about the honeymoon before the end of the night tonight.  I'll keep you posted...

Are these the same linens we saw in Michigan? It's hard to tell since I can't enlarge the picture. Pretty.

And what a steal on the mason jars! Hope they're not gone!

The linens look amazing! And I cannot wait to see the centerpieces. I bet they are beautiful.
