With less than 2 weeks to go until our wedding, we’re a little bit crazed. Funny story, I also started Organic Chem classes on Thursday, which now take up four days a week in reviews, class, and lab. Yay, let’s get busy!
So we’re scrapping a lot of details. Pie-topper, what? Really, who cares – right now the ceremony is far more important, and absolutely one of the things we should figure out, like, yesterday. In the midst of all this craziness, I will bring you some of what has already happened; recaps of this whole planning process, full of pictures and light on the deep thoughts from yours truly. Enjoy!
So I talked recently about one of our three favor options, and here is our second: tea. I’ve talked a little bit about tea as a favor before, but we hadn’t figured out quite what to do with it. We’d considered some sort of blend, but weren’t sure what kind… and then we went camping in New York and came across The Tea Shop of Woodstock. Swoon.
They had THE most amazing tea selection, along with everything else you might want, including amazing tea timers. You never knew you needed one, but you desperately do, trust me. In fact, I need one. You can buy me one if you’d like.
Anyway, they also had samples, and we settled pretty quickly on Lavender Earl Grey. Who knew such a thing existed and was so delicious?! On top of that, much of our initial bonding/dating involved selling lavender products for work, and lavender will forever remind me of being mildly nauseated by the excessive smell that surrounded us in our first few days of being together. In milder versions, it is just wonderful.
So we bought a whole lot of lavender Earl Grey, and here’s what we did with it:
Next up: the third favor, and how we prettified everything!
Did you put a lot of manual labor into your favors? I think we were drunk on the smell of lavender for the rest of the day. Which favor would you pick?
