How about a lotto ticket or two?  You could make some sort of statement like "the groom won the lottery when he met <you>, now he wants to pass the luck around".  You could weight it down with a couple of shiny pennies or a quarter so that it's "toss" able instead of just slowly floating down. :-)  Hope that helps!

This is my take on the Little People topper.  I loved this idea from the moment I saw it -- thank you so much for posting it!  I deconstructed a thrift-store topper, repainted Little People from eBay, then fired up the hot glue gun and this is what I came up with. :-)

My wedding will be in September, and I've already found that some of the garlands I bought last fall are not really apealing to me anymore... And my concept of what the decoration will be has changed drastically.  Luckily, I got the garlands on massive clearance. :-)

Some things I'd initially planned on eventually ended up seeming like unnecessary expenses, so we've opted out: skirting for the tables that costs either 20.00 per skirt or 90 total for plastic skirting we buy (that gets used once, destroyed and thrown away).  I also regret not waiting for prom clearance to buy my dress.  Depending on what you want, you might be able to find a GREAT deal at a dept. store instead of the bridal shops.

I guess I won't know until after the event, but I've made a TON of wedding things myself and the savings has been significant.  I do have some insecurities about what I've made that even though my fiance and I like them, maybe everyone else will think it's weird.  Sometimes people get freaked out when you go outside the norm - florist-made arrangements, the usual explosion of white silk roses adorning every surface that can be hot-glued.  I don't think I'll regret it though -- it's been so much fun!  As long as you're having fun and not pushing yourself too hard, I think it's worth it.

Try using tissue paper between the layers.  Then, when you're done, you can gently pull it out or even dunk it water to wash it away. :-)

McCall's Evening Elegance 3033. :-) I was thinking of making one for myself, but was given a beautiful pashmina instead.  I have the pattern right here on my desk. If you like it and can't locate it, message me. :-)
30  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Weddings and Bridal Showers / Packaging Cookie and Cocoa favors on: April 18, 2007 06:04:22 PM
My idea for favors: the ultimate treat, cookies and cocoa.  I have already bought little plastic treat bags for the cookies and have two huge boxes of Swiss Miss packets... how do I wrap them together? I'm having a fall/nature themed wedding, so I'd like to do something that would be appropriate... any ideas would be appreciated! thank you!
