To continue our travel theme I created DIY Passport Invitations in a champagne & gold color. They were so much fun to put together! Go to my article for a how-to: http://www.projectwedding.com/wedding-ideas/diy-wedding-challenge-2010-elegant-passport-invitations

I'd like for my flower girl to have a coordinating dress with the bridesmaids.  She will wear this one by Jim Hjelm in Bisquit/Light Gold in the satin face taffeta material.

Instead of rose petals, I will have my florist make a matching pomander for the flower girl to carry.

We like the idea of incorporating our love for travel into our wedding.  I made my own using champagne colored metallic paper with matching envelopes, a corner rounder, a damask design stamp, gold ink, and I printed them off of my own printer incorporating each guest(s) name in the "passenger" section.  I did the calligraphy for the envelopes myself.  I'm so happy with the way the turned out!

I love the monochromatic look of all white flowers.  I know I want to incorporate the white hydrangea and white roses into the bouquets, centerpieces, and floral arch.  I also want to include some hanging amaranthus to give a touch of green as well as add some ostrich feathers to the bouquets.  All around I think these combinations create a very vintage and dramatic look.

Bouquets

I wanted to keep all of the flowers very muted to go with my champagne/gold theme. I want a hand tied bouquet with ribbon to match the girls' dresses.  I also want to incorporate charms from each one of my grandparents as my "Something Old" since my grandparents won't be able to be with us on our wedding day. I want my bouquet as well as my maid of honor's to have touches of ostrich feathers as well.

All of my girls have such different shapes and heights. It would be difficult to choose a dress that would look fabulous on each of them equally. I also like the idea of having each girl show her own personal style, even in a Bridemaid's dress.  So I decided to let the girls pick their own dress from the Jim Hjelm Occasions collection in Bisquit/Light Gold Satin Faced Taffeta.  

The girls chose these dresses:

I love this "Will You Be My Bridesmaid" card from Kohler44. I bought the stamp on ebay, I bought a gold stamp pad, the ribbon, gold envelopes, and cardstock from a local paper store, and I will printed the cards myself on my home printer.  I picked a different poem for each girl to make the cards extra special.
