…sharing the same cup of water

T – 97 days…

Thursday at work it occurred to me that the Big Day ™ is coming up fast… so I worked it out and would you believe, it was precisely 100 days?!  So, yeah, I’ve been in a mild panic about that — there’s still so much to do!

The good news is, though, that it’s all getting done.  I’ve got the invitations worded and laid out, we’ve got the programmes drafted and laid out, my dress has arrived and gotten the needed alterations done (thank you, again, Elayne!)… Pete has been sending me updates of the art and is’t coming together beautifully!  I’ve got the fabric for my veil, though I still need to sort out how long I want it to be and how I want to trim the sides.  Shawn at Fairy Wishing Trees has the main component of our centrepieces well underway.  So far, the only real challenge has been getting a doublet for Himself… we had made arrangements with an artisan on Etsy but she never delivered.  I found something quite smart on eBay, though, and it has already arrived!  Fits beautifully and is higher quality than we had even expected.  If you’re ever in the market for reenactment garb and don’t already have a provider, I highly recommend thlJudith, an eBay seller.  I’m thoughtfully eyeing one of the Tudor gowns she has on Facebook…

The ceremony is coming together nicely and we’ve had some great offers to come help us with various bits of crafting that we’ll need to do between now and then!  Speaking of which, if anyone wants to learn how to make mead, get in touch!  Himself would love some help with that and is happy to teach in return for having a few helping hands!
