DIY hanger, For the day of the wedding, so that they can hang their pretty dress's on it for the pictutres. here are my inspiration picture for them:
Jewelry travel bag, they can bring all their day of jewelry in one place and not worry about lossing them during travel:
Compact, would love to get them a smalll purse compact with their names engraved on them, similar to these:
Flip flops, will be getting them some sort of flip flop or some sort of foot wear so that if their feet start to hurt after the long day in heels, they can change and not be bare foot, it is going to be winter, similar to these:
DIY Clutches, Would really love to get them or make the girl clutches, I think it would give them something to use after the wedding is done, and they can place the compact that I'll give them in it for formal events, these are the one that I'll be makeing them:
DIY Scarfs, I will be giving them a silver or black scarf with their inital on it, so that they can stay warm during the formal photo's, they are my inpirational photos:

wedding day Jewelry: I will be DIY the girls jewelry set, It will includes and necklace, and ear ring, not sure on a bracelet yet. here are photo of what I want them to look like:
Tote bag, I will need a bag to put all their gift in so I thought I would buy then a canvas tote bag, with their names on it, but I'm not sure, so that they can re-use and always think of us when they use it, I want somethign like this:
Ear rings: They will be pearl with a diamond halo that the women in my family have worn for the past 50 years. will update with photo's.
bracelet: fell in love with this from esty. hope it goes with the ear rings
Necklace: not sure if I will wear one. still looking.
Hair clip/tiara: wea re thinking of having one custom made and brought from Puerto Rico for me B/c I can't find one that I like, but we will see. here is so,e of my inpiration:
Like we are ring the year in, we will have Happy New Year hats, tiaras, and noise makers handed out around 11:25 so that when we hit Midnight we are ready to celebrate.
We are also wanting to do either a balloon drop or confetti drop, or if they let us both
The balloon have to be made out of Mylar b/c Fi is death allergic to latex.
We have choose to start of the new your in the best way as possiable, as husband and wife!!!!! We will be ringing the new year with all our family!!! can't wait.
having so many DIY project thought that it would be easier to just put them all on one page.
DIY save the dates:
We are sending out magnet save the date:
We will be DIY panel pocket invites. the pocket will be 8.5 x 5.5 and it will have three inserts, with a ribbon belly band. they will be black and silver. This is m mock up digital( if that makes sense)
but I have change a few things.
We are not sure yet if we are going to do programs, we won't have a lot of people that don't know each other so it might just be a waste of time. But if we do decide to do them then they would look similar to these:
they will be 3.5 by 8.5, I also want them to fit into a shirt pocket or even a pant pocket so the will be pretty small.
DIY Memory candles:
