Wedding Obsessed

Monograms August 6, 2008

Monograms are a growing trend in wedding themes. I definetly wanted to incorporate them somehow but didn’t want to make the letter “M” my trend. After many attempts at PhotoShop, I opted to pay $15 for three monograms from Creative Montage. They did a great job–check my monograms out.


I plan to use the monograms on…

  • Out of Town Bags for guests traveling to our wedding
  • Programs (DIY)
  • Favor Bags
  • Invitation
  • Rehearsal Dinner Invites
  • Other Random Places

Ha, I couldn’t resist and I’m sure everyone cracks this joke, but oh well. Anyways, they came in today and I am so pleased. I can’t wait to send them out! Sorry the picture is so awful.

Oh yeah, don’t they look familiar? See below if not.

I really really LOVE the garters I listed below from etsy, but this weekend my mom and I found the garter she wore and I am considering making it my something blue (it could double as something old and borrowed too). Here’s a picture…

I’m thinking that I could get it dry cleaned, add a little more beading in the front, and put some monograms in it. I could put my parents wedding date and then mine and Marks’. That way, it could truly be an heirloom!


Update! July 30, 2008

I have been away quite a while from the blog, but I have completed quite a few wedding tasks!

  • I booked a DJ and I will later blog about ALL the songs I do and I don’t want played. FYI..I’m anti- organized dances
  • I met with three florists (exhausting!) and decided on one-ofcourse the most expensive-but she is soo creative and we are gonna come up with some ways to save money. Later, I’ll blog about the creative ideas!
  • I met with a caterer and he is gonna get a quote to me on all of my desserts for the reception. My bridesmaid that I took with me is on Weight Watchers (as am I) and it was torture to talk about desserts for an hour!
  • I met with my wedding planner and she set me up with a baker, linen rental place, and stationers to meet with on my next visit home.

Garters! I still have ten months to plan my wedding, but I tend to want to check off some of the little things on my list. As of now, I have three options for my garter. I want it to count as my “something blue” and also for it to be something original. When I think of original, my mind goes straight to etsy. All of these Garters are made my Rose Tree Garters AKA GarterLady on Etsy.
