Thanks beckashell!

Molly.Connelly - I now know someone else getting married on our date - and she happens to be the cousin of one of my best friends! Sad  Hopefully she'll be able to make both receptions at least!  Weekdays are much cheaper, that's why we chose a Friday too. Smiley

All six bridesmaid bouquets together!


My bouquet!  Mine has a heart charm, the girls each have little charms with their first initial.

They came out absolutely stunning.  The roses look so real. You've done a fantastic job.

Here'a a picture of my aisle runner!  I bought the runner itself at Michaels, unrolled about 85 feet of it, traced and painted my design, and rolled it back up!  It was really easy... the hardest part was the rolling.

Pictures of my invites!! Cheesy  I love them so much.  We actually cut and glued the fabric to the outside of each, as well as cutting and printing all the paper.  It was a lot of work, but I'm thrilled with the results. Smiley









You can't see it so well in the picture, but I'm especially proud of the RSVP - we typed up the names of the invited guests with check boxes next to them, so guests can just check off who's attending. We also had a box to check if no one could come. I love it because we haven't had anyone try to add someone who isn't invited and whoever knows what to do with the traditional M________ anyway? Cheesy

I may have to steal that check mark idea! The man and I were trying to figure out who to invite and who not to last night, and man that's difficult! I may just have to kill off some family members to make it easier . . .  Tongue
The roses look beautiful as well. I keep going back and forth between buying them or making the coffee filter ones; I'm not sure if I like the ones I've made well enough.

We had the same issue, with deciding who to invite.... in the end though, enough family said "no" that we could invite anyone we wanted to, just to fill in our required number of guests!  It involved a lot of last minute calls: "We really wanted to invite you, but we felt that we had to invite family first... however, some of them couldn't attend, so now we can invite people we want to invite - like you!" haha.

There are definitely pros and cons to making your own... some of the things I liked was I could bring it to my dress fittings to see it with my dress, I know it's done and there won't be any last-minute issue on the day, and I can keep it forever!  Storing all of them is a pain though, haha.  If you like the idea of coffee filter roses, but are considering just having a florist do them, you could always just buy the ones on the mommymakesroses website... I'm not sure how the prices compare to a florist, but I hear live flowers are expensive!

It's now been 3 weeks and 1 day since our wedding!  It was the most incredibly perfect day.  Smiley   I'll share more pictures once we get more of the pro shots, but here are some now...

Cake!  With my coffee filter roses on top and my monogram design in icing on the front!  We had the cake professionally made, but she incorporated all my elements perfectly. The design around the bottom mimics the scroll design on our invites. (It has buttercream icing - doesn't it look as smooth as fondant?)


This picture shows the coffee filter rose bouquets I made for me and my bridesmaids!  I'm sure my photog got a better picture of them, but at least this one is better than anything I've uploaded so far!


Bridesmaid coffee filter rose bouquets!  Their dresses are actually teal, not blue.


Here's a half-way decent shot of the necklaces I made for the co-MOHs & bridesmaids.  The one in the center is my sister and Co-MOH.


And, just for fun, one of the professional pictures (by Amy Boeve Photography - I love her, she's fantastic!) of my husband and I. Smiley  I made my necklace and my mom and I made the veils.
