I made shirts for the bridal party and gave them to the girls at my shower - they came out pretty good, but make sure that after you do an ironon, you stretch the material slightly as soon as you peel the backing off! (So that when they wear them and stretch, the wording won't wrinkle and break). I have one for myself too :)
The bridal shower that my girls threw for me was AMAZING and exceeded any kind of expectations I may have had. They did such an incredible job and I was blown away by everyone's generosity.
Too many gifts!
The traditional hat from ribbons on the gifts
Favors my MOH made
This is the link for the swirl on the reserved signs and table names...I got it from another PW friend :)
Favors for our guests will be martini glasses filled with green M&M's (our colors are purple and green). I got the M&M's at Target after Valentine's Day. They were running a "Green is the color of love" promotion and had bags of all green - definitely better than buying them from the M&M website or a candy stores! We got a pound for just over a dollar...and I think I bought about 16 pounds! I also made it my mission to find martini glasses for a dollar a piece, which I did, through www.dollartreedirect.com
These are the boxes are martini glasses sitting in our front hallway after being delivered...
What we hope the favors will look like when finished...
(more or less)
We'll make tags and maybe use purple ribbon to tie off the M&M bags to incorporate both of our colors. Cheers!
Update: What a process!!! But the finished product was beautiful :)
I got a 17 inch birdcage card holder from www.save-on-crafts.com
I made signs that say "cards" for the outside and "thank you" for the inside
The plan is to have the shower gifts be little jewelry/toiletry bags filled with lotion and other bath goodies. I'm also going to include a $25 gift card to go towards their nails or hair for the wedding.
Their wedding gifts are totes from www.americanbridal.com $5 sale. I also have...
-monogrammed luggage tags attached
-a bottle of wine
-capri pajama pants
-wedding party shirts
-little knickknacks from michaels (a bookmark, notepad with their first initial)
