"Party's over said the girl!" If anyone is thinking about planning their own diy wedding reception, I highly recommend doing it in 6 weeks or less like i did. Its stressful and mind consuming and can turn any old wishy washy person completely OCD, but if you only give yourself 6 weeks, then its over in a jiffy. And you don't have too much time to really stress out on it.
Of course, this plan is only contingent on having insanely awesome friends and family that are willing to loan out the perfect decorations, make the sweetest sweets, spend hours and hours in hot summer yard work mode, travel across the country and pitch in and lend a hand, or several. Or even a rib. I am lucky enough to have the kind of crafty friends that will spend the entire 6 weeks leading up to said event making all kinds of decorations fit for a Martha Stewart mag spread.
So, this post is really a shout out to my besties and my parents. Verbal thank yous have been expressed and note cards are in the works, but I just can't say enough about how overwhelmingly thankful I am to have such great people in my life. Could be the hormones talkin, but I gotta lotta love for you people.
It was a mid-summer's nights dream of backyard vintage ice cream social awesomeness. And it went by too fast. These types of things always do. I wish I had a video so I could go back and watch it in slow mo. If I didn't get to talk to you much, its not that I didn't want to. If only I could have stopped time to make it last...
Thank you for the love, support, muscle and sweat!
