We are doing a 'message in a bottle' for my Bridal Shower invites! I actually wanted to stay out of some planning for once- but I thought of this idea which kinda got me involved. Jason and I REALLY want to go on a nice HM, so we registered for one, and we are now going with the Caribbean theme for the bridal shower. These aren't the exact ones, my BM and I changed the look a bit. We got white sand, a few small shells to put inside, the invites are on aqua blue metallic paper, and tying them with a little straw piece. We also may emboss a shell stamp on the invite? I'm excited b/c its an opposite 'theme' from the wedding, lighten up the mood a little bit :) I get to use some color and prettiness.

Finished product!!! (before the labels)

My FI surprised me on our anniversary with a block of cheese wrapped in red! I was like WTF is this? BTW- I HATE cheese :) Anyway, long story short, he got me the photobooth for our wedding!!! (something I have always wanted!)

My FI is a photographer, we always take a billion pictures, I'm a scrapbooker, and we wanted a unique guest book- so everything works out perfect to match our style! I just ordered my blank photobook from www.mypublisher.com for the actual guestbook/ to put the pictures in- Can't wait to see how it comes out!

After MUCH looking around, it was inevitable I was going to pick a dress from the Dessy Collection. I LOVE their dresses!!! We stumbled upon this one and it just worked. We had originally picked out a long black dress, but then thought it was too formal for a summer/ chapel wedding.  I have my two sisters (Maid & Matron on Honor) and two best friends (Bridesmaids) and each of them look adorable in this dress!  Im so glad this worked for everyone!

I decided to take a different route for the flower girl dress. I bought a Sweet Beginnings Duchess Satin flower girl dress in Cranberry red, tied by a black satin sash with a large bow on the back. I thought it would be a nice touch with the very dark/ romantic wedding. We were so nervous for it to come, thinking it wouldn't look right- but when we recieved the dress we ABSOLUTELY LOVED it! My niece (MOH/sisters daughter) is our FG, and this is her 3rd time- but never in a beautiful red dress. She loves it too!

As for the RB, we just had them match the GM's attire!  My youngest RB held a pillow with a Shannon Crystal Ring we got as a gift from our engagment party, and my other RB had a very special surprise for my DH!
