I got these keyrings for my bridesmaids and me.  They'll go on the bouquets and then can be kept after.Flowers photo 1

I got them in The Art and Hobby shop in the bargain bin, and then one of FIs friends engraved them fo me. They are initialed on the front (BM-C, BM-R and me-S) and have the date (in Ireland it's dd-mm-yyyy) on the back.  I had to create a shadow to make it show up on the picture.

**********other ideas**********

I love this bouquet, it's just so simple and cute.

I found out recently (thanks to you PW lovelies) that they're blue hydrangeas and stephanotis.  Maybe the same bouquet only reversed could be used for my bridesmaids?

I have found another bouquet I like, it's quite similar but different- delphiniums and white roses:

Flowers photo 4  I like this bouquet the most.

Briedsmaids would have white roses only.

Types of blue flowers include:

* Delphinium
* Monkshood
* Hydrangea
* Statice
* Veronica
* Morning Glory
* Lobelia
* Sweet Pea
* Lupine
* Juniper
* Berries
* Phlox
* Hibiscus
* Tulips
* Columbine
* Flax
* Plumbago
* Bayberry
* Butterfly Bush
* Bachelor Button

Don't know what this flower is but isn't it FAB????

This again is from Budoh's biography (this girl's a genius!!!!).  It's an article about including everyone (MOB, FOB, MOG, FOG and some siblings) in the dancing.

I'm an only child but FI has 3 brothers and 2 sisters so I might be able to ask them to join us.

I'd love a photobooth for our weddig but the budget is quite tight so I know FI wouldn't go for it.  However, I found this Homemade Photo Booth on Budoh's biography.

I think this DIY keepsake box from its.nicsknack's bio is a fantastic idea.  There's loads of stuff lying around here that I'd love to keep memories of!
