Wedding Purchases

I've started taking pictures of everything I'm purchasing for the wedding. A way to keep track of items coming in and what I've purchased/still have to purchase. It's been a fun couple weeks seemingly purchasing something every day on Etsy or elsewhere. I finally feel like I'm making headway. I've been busy delegating as well, there's stances I have to be firm on (like not stretching our max guest list of 75) and others that I can delegate out and wipe my hands of (Mum didn't like my centerpiece plan so I'm happy to let her take that off my plate). I'm excited to start dress alterations soon, shop for groomsmen attire, and mail out invitations. They're all printed and I'm just waiting on the designer who is making our address cards and some people to get back to me with their mailing addresses.  Here's what I have so far (there's lots in the mail right now that are not pictured of course). 

Above, Sandgrens clogs that I still have to break in, a floral crown from WhichGoose on Etsy. Not 100% sure this is what I will wear on the day, but I might wear it at the rehearsal.

Below: Thrifted milk vases, various mercury glass votives in gold, green and blush from Anthropologie and Indigo. The large gold flower pot is Anthropologie. N and K gold letters from Indigo.
 
Various stationary purchases for making the invitations (cardstock Straight Home Paper Supply, self inking address stamp from Yellow Fish Paperie, Kraft Envelopes Squish and Chips, 'Please Deliver to' Stamp from Chatty Press, Washi Tape MooseArt), plus hand made branch pens (from Falling Opposite on Etsy) for guestbook.

Treat Yo Self poster (Paper Chat) for dessert table and monogram notebooks (Print Stitch and Paste) for vows.

Recently arrived: blush satin ribbon for wrapping bouquets, 25 yards of gold sequin ribbon, gold dipped pencils for reception activity, tons of custom ribbon (it says Kait & Nick and I Love You on it!) from The Lonely Heart on Etsy (turns out I'm a  sucker for ribbon?), gold paper straws, more gold ribbon, raffia ribbon for programs, and gold bakers twine. Whew!
