Getting Ready For The Wedding, The Save The Dates Are Out

The Count down is on....6 months until Baby Boy gets married!
The "Save The Date" cards are out, and I am full speed ahead

My son and his fiance live in DC but, both are Florida kids and the wedding will be here in Orlando Thanksgiving weekend

And a dream come true......A vintage themed wedding...Could it get any better!
I've been recruited to make tussie mussies for the aisle, escort cards, mirror trays for the centerpieces, and table numbers

I've already made the bridal bouquet

And bridesmaids bouquets

The rehearsal dinner will be around the corner from my house at a cute little outside cafe "903 Mills Market".  This is special place for the couple. They spent many hours  here......."Getting to know you", since the future DIL lived a block away from me when they met.

It'll be a fun, casual dinner....Vintage Themed of course!  I'll be able to show you some of what I am doing for the decor, but since the "Kids" read my blog, some pictures will have to wait until after the wedding, since I want it to be a surprise.

So, who doesn't like a wedding blog....Right? 

 Don't worry, I still have to keep my antiques booth full, so there will be plenty of regular posts!

I'm having so much fun

Happy Creating!

I just started following you yesterday! I got married last November and had a slight vintage theme to my wedding too. You are going a LOT more vintage than I did, but I'm excited to see everything you come up with!

I love reading about your antique finds! I'm hoping to start up a small booth myself soon. Still considering it and waiting to talk to the owners of a local antique mall - they're out of town until tomorrow.

Keep up the great posts!!

How did you do the bridal bouquet? I'd love to make one to use for my table at the local wedding show in August and Sept. :) I make bridal clutches and clutches for bridesmaids too, been swinging towards more vintage sorta purses lately. :) If you could email me how to make those, I'd be really grateful!

How exciting... Your so included to make mussie tussies, I love making them. Usually I reserve them for Christmas time but what a great opportunity to make them for the big day. Your so blessed Carol.
Congrats to the Bride, Groom and the Mom of the son.

Debbie said...

I think I've told you that I'm the world's greatest wedding groupie. I love them and love seeing it all come together from beginning to end. (If I could stow away on a proposal date, I probably would... I'm a hopeless romantic.

I love the bouquets and hope you share as many tidbits leading up to the big day as you can.

I guess you better warn the couple they have a stalker.

Bliss said...

How fun is that...... a vintage wedding and you get to create for it. Should be fantastic with your extra touch.

It looks like it'll be a beautiful wedding. I hope you plan to hire a good photographer and post lots of pictures. I've been tied up editing a large wedding for the past several days. I should some day post images to my Artistic Images blog... but editing and album building must come first. I've been toooooo busy to keep regular posts lately.

Ricki Jill Treleaven said...

How cute!!! :D I know that you are so happy, and the theme is making you extra happy!!!

Little Miss Maggie said...

Oh, Carol, you are in for the time of your life. Nothing more exciting than a wedding. Our anniversary is November 29 and we were married the day after Thanksgiving. I consider that a good luck weekend to get married.

SavannahGranny said...

What an exciting time for you and your family. It is so wonderful that future DIL has asked you to take such an active part. That is not always the case.
She had the good taste to realize what an asset you are.
I can't wait to see what all you are doing. The bridal and maids bouquets are exquisite. The fabulous thing is they are permanent and will be something the grands can see.
Bob and I are celebrating our 54th anniversary today. We have celebrated quietly today, lot of reminiscing. We then went out to dinner and now we are waiting to watch Nic Wallenda walk across Niagara Falls. We party BIG! LOL.
Enjoy this special time.
Hugs, Ginger

I have never seen 'save the date' cards before. That is a really good idea. It's fantastic that you get to create all those things for the wedding.
