Two of our very dear friends are getting married tomorrow! This is the wedding that Josh is best man in and I'm helping out with the "girls getting ready" pictures. This wedding is really cool - Jared and Anna have friends or family members taking care of almost every part of the wedding. Not only is that a wise choice financially, but it's really cool for us friends who get to be a part of their big day :)
So we spent most of today helping get ready for that - starting with an early rehearsal, followed by brunch.. then they rehearsed some more, then set up for the reception.
While our husbands were setting things up for the wedding, Emily and I left to get the flowers (she's in charge of the bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres). Getting them from Kroger to her house was quite the adventure! I had to make sure the three buckets of cold water and flowers didn't spill.. I was up to my ears in baby's breath. Thankfully, we reached her house without any spills! Then she taught me how to make boutonnieres.
While I was helping Em with the roses, I remembered that today is Friday.. as in, the day we pick up our CSA. Thankfully, Josh and I still had time at that point to drop by and pick up our second CSA share of the season. I'm still so excited about this program! I can't remember exactly what we got this week, but I'm happy to see more strawberries; and the addition of cabbage, broccoli, and onions has me excited to meal plan.
We were going to shoot Monday's video tonight, but we were both way too tired. We went on a date instead - we tried Which Wich for the first time and it was DELICIOUS. Now we're at home, chilling. Josh is putting the finishing touches on the script, but once he's done, I'm going to try to convince him to let me read a few chapters of Catching Fire out loud tonight. Cross your fingers!
Do you know of any couples who've put on a DIY-style wedding with friends and family contributing the various services? How did they go?
