My love and I are getting married on July 13, 2008 and I thought I'd share some of the stuff my mom and I made and/or decorated.
My mom made this tree pretty much on a whim; the birds were 50% off, so my mom just had to get them. I'm not sure exactly where it's going to go, but we'll find a place for it.
Here's my bouquet:
And the bridesmaids' bouquets:
A corsage and a boutonniere (we made 4 corsages and 7 boutonnieres total)
Favor boxes - I had some cute gift boxes, but they were too big and only came in olive green or burnt orange. So I bought one, shrunk it on the copier, and traced it onto cardstock over sixty times (not to mention cutting out, rubber stamping, and assembling all sixty-some boxes). These will hold amaretto fortune cookies.
The card box - This was actually meant for holding plants, but I thought it was cute enough to hold cards. My mom did all the beadwork to make it a little more wedding-y.
My garter - I wanted a garter that was little more burlesque-y than what I was finding online, so I decided to make one. I found a basic black lace garter on clearance at Hot Topic after Valentine's Day and embellished it with marabou, ribbon, and a charm.
Centerpiece - The result of 50% off sales at Hobby Lobby and gift boxes from the after-christmas clearance section of Costplus.
And lastly, my kitty Yo-Yo supervising the photoshoot.
We also made my dress and the bridesmaids' dresses, ties and pocket squares for the groom and groomsmen, and the caketopper. I'll post pictures of this stuff after the wedding.
