State of My Union

Since Mr. Prez is giving a big speech tonight about the state of affairs, I figure it is time to reassess mine.  With less than a month to go some things are getting done, some are being replaced and some are being plain thrown out!

Lets start with what is no longer making the cut for the Cucumber Sandwich wedding.

1.  Photobooth

We will not be having a photobooth at our wedding.  Originally I really, really wanted one but as time is growing short and my DIY list is getting longer this project did not make the cut.  I could have delegated it to Mr. Cuke Sammie but I am slowly coming around to not having one at the wedding.  I have convinced myself that it will take away from our raging dance floor.  I have no idea if this is true but it is what I tell myself late at night.

2. Day of Coordinator
This is a post for another time but I am subscribing to the philosophy that 'too many cooks spoil the broth'.

3. Victorian Brunch

I think I promised this in my introductory post but it is not going to happen.  We are probably going to have some people over to Mr. CukeSammie's family house for some scrambled eggs but nothing elaborate.  There are only so many hours in the day!

4. Doily Welcome Bags

I would have loved to be able to make these bags for our welcome bags.  I might still make one after the wedding for me :)  Since everyone is coming in from out of town that would be a lot of bags.  Also most people are staying together with multiple families in one rental property so bag distribution might be kind of complicated.

Fortunately MamaCS had an inspiring idea.  We are going to get a large tub of kettle corn for each house and call it a day!  Maybe tie some ribbon around the bucket and leave a note.  Who wouldn't want to come home to this:

Our 'additions' list is much, much shorter.

1. Uplighting!
In 6 degrees of separation, I have acquired Mrs. Seashell's uplighting. I am very excited to see how these lights turn out in the venue.

2. Videographer
We have decided to spring for the WedIt wedding video.  Wedit is a service that sends you 5 flip cameras to record whatever you want.  After you send the cameras back they will create a wedding video and highlight reel from your footage.  We thought about buying flip cameras to record the ceremony and other important moments but this really seems like the best option.  I would have had no idea how to piece together the footage together and now someone will do it for me!  We get 5 cameras so we can capture the day from all kinds of angles.  Here is an adorable example of their work:

And there you have it.  The Cucumber Sandwich State of the Union.

Which projects have you had to let go?  Did you add anything approaching the wedding?

  1. Ohh you did a wrap up of the slip-through-the-crack-projects... I didn't do that because I had a lot and I wanted to remain feeling accomplished lol.

    We didn't get a photo booth in the end or a D-O-C either. I really could have used the coordinator with how our venue coordinator butchered our music.
    I was supposed to make a fabulous matted photo guestbook our guests could sign... huge "Mwahh mwahh" flop on that. Oh well, right? we're all still married/getting there!
