Wedding Table Runners & Honeymoon Bikini

On Sunday my sweet mom came up to Charlotte from Columbia to help me with a big project.

Wedding table runners.

Ironing one of the four runners.  Total bicep workout.

Seems simple, right?  Well, we made 4 runners for our long wedding tables -- one 28 feet long, one 44 feet long, and two 52 feet long.  Yes, we cut/ironed/hemmed 176 feet worth of table runners.  And if you really want to get specific, since we cut/ironed/hemmed both sides of the runner, that was 352 feet worth.  That is equivalent to 117.3 yards, which is 17.3 yards (or 52 feet) longer than a FOOTBALL FIELD.

One upside of waiting for our West Elm furniture to arrive = LOTS of room for working!

In addition to completing the runners (which happened at midnight on Sunday), we covered 2 pillows and also cut out the fabric that will replace the generic fabric in the back of the photobooth we have rented.  Want to see that fabric?  You'll have to look under the big furry mound here that decided it was better than his dog bed.

It felt great to cross those projects off of the to-do list and know that our beautiful long wedding tables will have a customized look.

In other news, WE GET MARRIED IN FOUR DAYS!  And we leave for our honeymoon in just five days!

Want to see what I'm really excited about in regards to the honeymoon?

Oh, YES I DID.  :)
