Getting There!

Just two short weeks

until these two get married.

We're moving along

but not sure it's fast enough.

We got Grandpa in on backdrop building. (Notice the plastic bag on Andy's cast)

I hope this convoluted group of items ends up being something beautiful!

We still have table runners, back drops, center pieces, and refreshments to make. 

This is supposed to be fun, right?

I love the picture with the grocery cart - that is fun!!

Oh my exciting, exciting! I can't wait to see what you do with that plaster of paris and the branches - I know it will be fab!

Have fun getting ready!!

Such a cute couple! I love their pictures (I saw them on FB). Did Camille take them?
Everything will be awesome~ can't wait to see what cleverish ideas you have come up with!
Two weeks & it will be over and then you can RELAX (ha, ha, ha, ha....)

Good luck with all of the work and creating. I can't wait to see how everything turns out.

It's a lot of hard work but the end product will be amazing!

Those are such cute photos of them! How wonderful that they found each other. It sounds like you have a lot of work ahead of you so I hope you get to enjoy it all even with the work.

It's especially fun when it's all over! Mimi

Oh Connie, I know it is going to look absolutely amazing with all the work you are all doing.
Love the pics of Jeanette and Julio. What a cute couple! So sad I am going to miss the big day :(

I love the picture of her in the shopping cart! He chose her!!

And I don't envy the wedding planning. Nope. Not at all

I love weddings! Can't wait to see her smiling face.

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

Wow time is running short. Sorry I could not resist.
What a lovely couple and so exciting to be preparing for their beautiful life together.
Will be thinking of you and I know everything will be gorgeous.

This post just gave me a panic attack!!!!!
I'm tired just thinking about all you are in the middle of.

I won't tell you that I've totally been enjoying these last three weeks. Sitting in the yard, putting my feet up, having Sven the pool boy bring me little drinks with umbrellas in them.
Ya, TOTALLY lying.

Thinking of you.
Soooo dang grateful it's you.
You obviously handle this sort of thing much better than me.

Sue said...

Guess what! You just won my 900th post givewaway!! Now all I need is your mailing address. Would you either email me or leave me a comment? (My email address is in my profile.)

Congratulations, Connie.


Cheeseboy said...

I seriously hope you are going to use that plaster of paris to make statues of the handsome couple!

Kerin said...

Such a beautiful couple. Their smiles say it all :)
I'm right there with ya girl.... hoping to have fun, but I am looking forward to getting it over with :)
Everything will turn out fantastic for you; I'm sure of it!

Fun, fun, fun!! I am sure it will be great. Those last two weeks are bit bit hectic. But I still think they are fun. Now that our daughter's wedding is all over I keep wondering how we ever got it all done, but also thinking I can't wait for the next one since I learned a lot of things I would do differently next time around. My next daughter isn't in much of a rush to get married though--and that is probably for the best.

Good luck!! I wish I could come and help you.

Teachinfourth said...

Happy times for them = lots of work for you.

You'll do great. Hope it's awesome. But right before school starts? What were they thinking?

jules said...

I love getting ready for a wedding. I actually just helped my niece with the decorations for her wedding. It turned out beautiful.

It will all be worth it, I promise.

Heffalump said...

Connie, I just wanted to let you know I made a mistake on my blog post...the pics are of dragon flies. I don't know why I typed firefly...wishful thinking maybe. I've never seen a firefly either.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and entering the giveaway for the Sam's Club $25 gift card! Good luck to you.

The wedding looks like it will be lovely. Best of luck to you, your hubby, and the bride and groom.

karen said...

I'm sure everything will be beautiful! We just attended our niece's wedding and reception. I love to see young couples starting out!

Valerie said...

I have a wedding (my first) in about 3 months... I have no idea what I'm doing. I admire you moms who are so put together and can even sew dresses and make back drops! I'm thinking I'll just give them money and they can elope!

Nancy Face said...

I'm excited to see the wedding pictures! :)
