Bridesmaid embroidered handmade aprons and shirts- Still need to take pics of.

Here are some finished and progressive shots.

Here are some of the placecards. The table numbers are on the back. The names are embossed in bronze.

These are some designs I did for my favour bags. I spray painted them in moss green and dark blue then glued on the beaded wire names below. I would have taken pics of them but my cameras batteries ran out of juice!!




Here are some of the beaded wire names before I glued them onto the above bags.


Closeup



Here is the Unity Candle I did.



Here are the candles I made. The left side has honeymelon fragrance and the right has vanilla. The tall ones are for the women which get decorated in wire and beads and the shot glasses are for the men which get monogrammed with their initial. As you can see I havent cleaned up yet!


Here you can see some of the wiring and beading. Excuse the photos. My camera is terrible and Im sure I dont help.


Here are the monogrammed shot glasses



These are somewhat finished aprons Im doing for my bridesmaids. They are done now but I forgot to get pics and they're taking their sweet time getting them to me!


Im finished embroidering this one, I just now have to sew on all the embellishments.

Some closeups




Here is my MODs that I just started but wont have time to finsh till afterwards. Im using the same patterns but am rearranging them, for the most part! Wink Also the MODs kitchen colours are way more vibrant and colourful so I get to be more playful.


And a closeup


The flower girl basket



I used two types of flowers for the bouquets. Cream roses and dark blue hydrangeas. There are also silver heart charms attached at the bottom.





Here is my bouquet. I had SO MUCH to do I let my girls decorate it. I forgot to mention to them to use the navy ribbon for the lacing instead and dark blue hydrangeas were also supposed to be in there. Oh well....we ran out of time.



Pics of us and the flowers


My garter belt (embellished with flowers from the bouquets)


My I do letters


Here you can see the bubbles for the ceremony


And finally my ring pillow.


NEW PICS!!!!

My little guest book which I LOVE! Everyone wrote on a page and when we got all the disposable cams developped we put in everyones photo.

Front


Inside


Here are the program fans I made. The ceremony was supposed to be outside and since it was mid July it could have been pretty hot. I didn't make the paper longer as I would have had to use more of it and I was lacking both time and money at this point! Wink They closed with velcro tabs.


Finally my thank you cards. We got doubles of all the disposable cameras so we sent everyone some misc pics of us as well as themselves. The thank you is embossed as well. Its simple, yet elegant I think.


I still need to take and upload one more pic. (CD favours) and I think that would about do it. Wink
Thanks for looking!

That all looks great!! Could you etch the shot glasses?  You could make it personalized them, but still manly.  Here's a tutorial: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=17742.0

Had to giggle with the last picture, looks like the cat's tail is about to take a sip from the glass.

How did you do the bronze on the invites?  It looks embossed, but it's hard to tell on this monitor.

Oh wow!  Everything looks great.  I love your colors. 

My humble opinions: I would leave the placecards as is, they look perfect and any more design might be overkill.  Adding some blue favor bags to the mix might be nice.  And I like the idea of etching the shot glasses (if you haven't done it already).

Good luck!

Okay so I got the etching cream and blue spray paint for the rest of the bags.

I think I have a problem with the candles though. Those glasses I got are from the dollar store and not meant to be candles (I would assume). I didn't realize I needed heat-resistant glass for the holders (isn't glass shaped with a flame torch?). So yeah, I'm not sure if I should go out and get a bunch of cheap votives or just suck it up and use the above glasses. They look so good all decorated I don't want to just toss the idea. My fiancee is going to bring a box home tonight and we're going to test one with a tea candle inside and see if it cracks or busts. Even if it doesn't, I'm going to add a tag saying the glass is not heat-resistant and lit at your own risk. Boo urns! Sad

Huh, that seems weird to me, I'd think setting a candle on glass would be fine... Let us know how the test goes!
