I had my make-up done by Surjaya Cruz. It was an airbrush foundation, super dramatic eyes complete with false lashes, and a pink lip. I loved it! She did an amazing job. She and her colleague did a great job with the BM, MOB, & MOG as well.
We did a photo guest book filled with pictures that we took on the vacation where he proposed in Europe. I printed it myself at Snapfish online. We bought gold paint pens and our guest signed around our pictures. Now we have warm wishes and congratulations from all of our loved ones in a beautiful photo book commemorating our engagement.
I took on a DIY project of making Reserved Seat Tags for both sets of parents, grandparents, aunts, unlces, & siblings. They were super easy and turned out very well. I just used cardstock metallic paper in my colors, some ribbon, glue, and my own printer. Voila!
My FI and I did a tribute to our younger selves with some side by side baby pictures of us at similar ages. It turned out adorable!
Unfortunately, our grandparents could not be with us on our wedding day. So, in a tribute to all of our wonderful relatives, we had memorial photos scattered around the venue so that they surrounded us on our special day. One of the photos is of my great-grandparents in 1906!
