My sister is having a small Summer wedding on an even smaller budget; she asked for some help so I had to get crafty. Here's what I've made so far:

Floral cake topper:

Flower girl hair band:

Bridesmaid flower clips:

They're just silk flowers attached to hair slides with super glue.

Flower girl pomanders:

Veil: (I pictured it at a funny angle, but it is symmetrical, I promise!)

Here is the tutorial I used to make it:


Please let me know what you think. (: Thanks for looking!

Some girls were just born with glitter in their veins.

Wow! it looks awesome and I luvvv the bridesmades flowerclips. I think the creativity that a low budget wedding needs makes it even more special because everyone is so much more involved. And congratulations!

You've done a great job! The cake topper is so sweet- it almost has a vintage-y valentines feel to it. She's going to have a beautiful wedding!
