With just a month left to go, we are in full on wedding prep mode. Most things are happening down where J’s parents live, so we only have a few things here with us. I thought I’d share some photos with you of the decorations.
We are going to get crafty and decorate old transparent wine bottles with silver ribbon and mint colored tape for the center pieces. We originally were going to use the coral color as well, but that was literally the only thing we found in coral. We had fun
drinking wine rounding up enough bottles.
Mint colored hearts to sprinkle on the tables.
Our guestbook known as the Livre d’Or in French.
Our cake topper that we ordered off of Etsy. We will be having an American style cake as I find the French pièce montée ugly and I don’t like “nougatine”. This will be the baker’s first attempt at an American style cake, so this should be interesting. I’m not scared as this guy’s stuff is amazing!
My mint colored heels
Matching flats for when my feet hurt (that I found super cheap at New Look)… which they will after about 10 minutes, because after wearing them for a bit every Sunday morning since the end of March, I still can’t stand the heels.
The hair comb that I also ordered off of Etsy.
J also got a mint colored bow tie off of Etsy. And because we are crazy, we ordered Elliot a mint collar with a bow tie on it. He’s going to look super cute in the photos. That one is currently sitting at my mom’s in the US as it was so much cheaper to have it sent to her.
In case you haven’t guessed it, our colors are mint (clearly) and silver. We wanted mint and coral, but apparently, both of these colors have yet to arrive in France when it comes to decorations. Luckily, we didn’t have to give up the dream completely as we have found some stuff in mint.
