penmanship Posted September 11, 2013 Share Posted September 11, 2013 Holy hell I had no idea how much shit people give you when you get married. Plush as fuck new towels, bedding, knives so sharp they might create an atomic blast when I slice through atoms. There is the major costs though, still have a bit of savings leftover but it'll be a while before we've got enough for a down payment on a house again. Got almost all my shit together. Been cleaning these rusty ass bottles for centerpieces. Jen's wedding gift to me. Kwest sculpture, soon to be added on a shelf also made by him which I can't wait for. Getting a custom tailored suit because I own three different articles of clothing: t shirts, dickies, hoodies, all of which are apparently not good enough for my wedding so I decided to spend all my fancy clothes budget on one suit. I have dubbed it my life suit, as I will wear it to every occasion I have previously been underdressed for. Got my third fitting tomorrow so I'll post a pic The tailor wanted a picture or pattern for the insignia or whatever it's called so while at school with nothing but soapstone and a welding table I sent Jen this: and she sent the tailor this: Thank fuck she offered to actually draw it because in hind sight a custom suit with my drawing would just not sit right. Got a giant navajo inspired wood work piece from this dude MSGHandmade. he's got that instagram shit so check it out if you're into it. hanging it in the barn behind the head table which Jen doesn't know about yet. To try and match her wedding gift to me I got a hold of her favourite painter, Timothy Hoyer, and a couple teacup machines from mike pike. I'll post pictures of the shit that happens in the lead up and the wedding if you fucks care to see. If you want to help us pay for the wedding get tattooed by Jen, she's in chicago right now, and will be in brooklyn before the years up and austin at the start of december. (and I doubt any of you live in iceland but there for a short stint as well) http://jenmoffatt.com/home.html cliff nots: Getting married Got sweet gifts for eachother Getting a tailored suit for my first adult formal wear ever. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
