We definately wanted a classic look with orchids everywhere!!!
Since they are my favorite flowers <3
Here is the Proof for our STD. I proudly designed and had printed by a good friend of mine:
To me weddings are such an important moment in time that you can't help but want it to be perfect! Perfect to all of us is different. But i think the one thing we all have in common is our small touches to make our weddings stand out and reflect the couple.
Here is our small touches:
The cones that held our bio degradable confetti and butterflies are actually pages from The Time Travelers Wife. A few ppl knocked this idea down and said "who is going to notice" ..but let me tell you... I saw ppl actually pull the cone apart to read the page after they threw the confetti and...THEY SMILED!!!! THAT LITTLE MOMENT MADE WAS PURE BLISS! Later on I got a few messages from my friends saying how unique that was!!
For the ladies who are interested you can find these at this shop on etsy
You can pick from many love stories!!
More to come...
First piece of advice my sister gave me " Don't spend alot on invites" from her own personal experience she says she regrets spending so much only to have ppl throw them out. LADIES THAT'S THE BEST ADVICE I HEARD!!!! So I went to Michaels Crafts and picked up these:
End Product..I added crystals to each of the capital letters in our names...which you can't see in this photo:(
My Brooch Bouquet:
I oeginally wanted to use this for myself. But my mom really wanted me to carry fresh flowers...so I gave the bouquet to my niece/FG to carry.
How it started:
Originally, I wanted just brooches. But then decided i wanted it to be fuller and softer looking so I got parchment roses from Michaels Crafts and put that in then the brooches and loved the end result!
BROOCH BOUQUET IN ACTION!
My Bling Shoes:
I definitely wanted so serious bling on my shoes and thought "hey i'm good with crafts" so i ordered relatively cheap shoes to try this on and it worked so perfectly that the first pair I did it on was the one I wore.
SHOES IN ACTION!
Since we loved our Engagement photos so much and wanted to share them with everyone...as well as keep in an album as a momento.. I decided to make it up on blurb.com! It was full of our photos as well as lined pages for guests to sign as they viewed the book:
