The Home Stretch -- Six Weeks!

If you can believe it (I certainly can't), we're in the home stretch here in the QB-BG household. There's less than SIX. WEEKS. LEFT.

Many people have asked me what is left to do and lately I have answered with a non-comittmital "not that much..." I'm not so sure I mean that, though. These next few weeks will be insanely busy, I know. I've braced myself. ... I think.

The countdown is on!

In other news, we got our wedding bands! Check out my post on BSB!

Showered with love

These past two weekends I've felt like an awfully lucky girl.

Thank you, thank you, thank you to my maid of honor, Francesca, who hosted a lovely, low-key gathering of some of my favorite people to celebrate my upcoming nuptials.

Then, my mama hosted a ragin' party of games and bridal hats for me/us in my hometown. It was so nice for me and Matt to spend time with our families (who met for the very first time!) and remember why we're so grateful to have such wonderful, generous people in our lives. Thank you to my adorable mother and her BFF for making me feel so loved!

That one time... when I DIY'd....

Well, I did it. I DIY’d. The bride who only planned to DIY her cake. But I didn’t do it alone! Oh, no! I enlisted the help of my maid of honor/BFF, and, eventually, my fiancĂ©.

A few weeks back, while looking for wedding decor inspiration in Pinterest, I came across this DIY tutorial for colorful Anthropologie-inspired scroll garland. The tutorial seemed really easy to follow, and after pricing out the colored card stock that I needed (recycled, of course!) at a few local stationery stores and online, trying this on my own seemed like a great budget-friendly decor option.

By Invite Only

What helps a couple set the stage for their wedding better than their invitations? For this reason, I was very excited to take on the task of creating an invitation for our nuptials that would give our guest a glimpse of what they would be in for on July 5th. As I’ve mentioned before here at BSB, Matt and I are all about bringin’ the fun. We want our friends and family to walk away from our wedding day saying, man, that was a great wedding! At T-10 weeks (eeeep!!), I’d say we’re well on our way to accomplishing that goal.
