Jason, his brother and I went on a suit buying outing today. Not knowing a thing about suits, I figured it’d be a good idea to do a preliminary suit searching so we can figure out what color of gray suit Jason will be wearing (which then determines what color of gray the groomsmen will be wearing) and where we should make this suit purchase.
While Jason slept in this morning, I got sh*t done. Bridesmaids, you’re only allowed to see this next paragraph or so, then you need to stop reading or else you’ll ruin some of your surprises!
I began the day with spray painting my remaining chairs — I’m hoping to have the 5 remaining chairs polyurethaned by the end of the day so that we will have actual dining room chairs at our disposal again. It will be next weekend before I work on reupholstering these chairs, but at least they’ll be completely spray painted & ready to go.
After that, I got to work on wedding projects… Finishing up the other 50 pack of thank you cards then moving on to putting together a ribbon & lace back drop for our dessert table using ribbon & lace I had around the house left over from other projects.

Still, I love it in real life & am glad that it was such a quick & easy project.

I am lucky enough to have 6 wonderful women who have agreed to be my bridesmaids on my wedding day — 4 amazing friends and my 2 sisters (who are also amazing friends). My four friends live in the same city as me, although on the other side of the city since I moved in with my fiance back in March, but my sisters are both located in different cities in Florida & my Mom, who I want to be a part of everything wedding related recently moved out to Arizona in order to avoid suffering through another Ohio winter.
