Guys, I can’t even tell you how excited I am about wedding week.
There is just something about weddings that makes me all ooey gooey inside. Even before I was ever planning my own wedding, I had a fascination with this momentous event. I never missed an episode of Four Weddings or Say Yes to the Dress, and I dreamed of the day I could plan my own big day.
But now that it isn’t just a dream, and it’s a reality…I’m completely anxious and freaked out. What if I make the wrong choice for flowers? What if no one likes my dress? What if our food tastes bad? And worst of all…what if people don’t like our decor (the pressure is on when you have your own craft & DIY blog!) All of these thoughts are spinning around my head as I work to check things off of my mile long wedding checklist.
The thing is we have so much time until our big day. Our wedding is set for October 11th, 2014. So I’m afraid that if I start any project now…I’ll hate it in a year.
So this wedding week posed a bit of a challenge for me. What could I do now (a year and 2 months ahead of my own wedding) that I would still like later on? And how could I incorporate “something old” into my project?
That’s when I thought of doing a project for our upcoming engagement photos! We’re getting our pictures taken in October and I wanted to do an outdoorsy setting, maybe with a picnic, or playing games on a blanket. Something totally us…comfy, relaxed, and fun!
Here’s some of our inspiration…
