We went a little crazy at Michael's today.
Ok. A lot crazy. We decided on paper for our invitations (brown paper bag colored) and at 50% off, we could not resist 3 packages of 50 paper and envelopes for $15. Win win. Win.
We also found some cool little paper flowers on clearance as well as some really cute chalkboard signs on clearance. It turns out that September is a FANTASTIC TIME to shop for wedding stuff since it is the end of wedding season. So we got some great deals, found some great finds.
We spent 2 hours in Michaels. TWO HOURS. There was one point when we both just stopped and were like "we're shopping for our wedding" and "we're getting married". It was a great moment. Here are some pictures of my "Steampunk Workshop".
We decided after a bunch of trials that we would make the boutonnieres look like medals with the purple ribbon we found. The "medal" will be an altered key with a paper flower, gears, watch faces, etc.

|Matt's creation. It's awesome.|
|I was trying to make something my aunt suggested for a design. It could work, but I don't like how this turned out for me.|
