Lately …

… we’ve been getting super close to getting the major components of our wedding crossed off our list, and it’s exciting. One huge thing for me is we ordered our wedding invitations! I’m going to get sick I’m so excited. When fiance and I met with Pretty as a Picture, we both gasped and pointed when we saw their Harbor Beach invitations. Hardcore awesome …

{like this, but different colours}. Want to know the best part? While browzing, we spotted a hydrangea monogram. I kept my mouth firmly shut. Fiance later said to me “you know, we can have the little hydrangea monogram on our invitations if you’d like? It would look really nice.” And that my friends, is the sole reason I am marrying that man.
So when ya’ll see our invitations with a hydrangea right in the middle, you won’t be thinking “that terrible woman, forcing her love of hydrangeas onto her invitations and not giving her fiance a say in the design”. Just getting the story straight. 
We also got our flowering tea from Solaris Botanicals {individually sealed in foil below. I’m not a crack dealer} as well as our black and white paper bags … 

Looking forward to exponential amounts of  nerding on the couch and getting our favours prepared for the big day. Very interested to see what people’s reactions will be to our parting gift. And a huge thank you for those of you who voted on whether or not they would be good souvenirs. The people have spoken.
And it wouldn’t be right if I didn’t share this last picture. I found this gem one day on my lunch break, struggling out of a very overgrown garden. Completely and utterly alone, just like Lydia. 

Hope you’re having a happy Tuesday everyone 🙂 It’s quite shit and raining here in Dublin. No surprise there.

      I'm so excited, we got our first proof today of our invitations! Oh they are amaze-balls.

      I'm going to try drying hydrangeas now and possibly use them as decoration for the big day. Not sure how that will turn out …
