    The official 2 month countdown has begun and I am getting more excited by the minute. I've been busy finishing up on lots of DIY projects here is what I've completed so far....

    Photo Share cards - from 123Print - $11.95 for 100 double sided (the other side is in Spanish).

    Luggage Tags - I used Staples matte white double sided business cards. The laminating pouch was purchased from Pouch-n-coil for $4.95 for 100, the loops also from Pouch-n-coil $5.95 for 100 and found the laminating machine at BJ's for only $29.95. They all have different funny and sarcastic sayings on them and I decided to not use damask border for the guys, don't think they would like that hanging on their luggage. :)

    White Fans and charm from Michael's - I think the fans were originally $18.99 for a box of 18 but they were on sale for $14.99, the charms were about $5.49 but I used the 40% coupon and the damask ribbon from JoAnne Fabrics was $3.50.

    I also finished the bridesmaids (our daughters) flip flops that they will wear for the ceremony. I used the same supplies from the fans to do these so it didn't cost me anything more but the $2.50 for each pair from Old Navy. Navy.

    Chapstick with our logo - used Office Depot glossy full sheet sticker paper. Put our logo on them and added the phrase "besame mucho" which is a song from Andrea Bocelli that I love - it means kiss me a lot. I had to cut each one individually but I think it was worth the work.

      Weekend survival kits that I put together to include in our OOT bags. They include;

      Hand sanitizer - purchased from Target .47 each
      Sunscreen - purchased from Target .97 each
      Chapstick - purchased from BJ's pack of 10 for $9.50
      Bliss bodybutter - got from a friend who works at a W Hotel

      I used white card stock and sandwich size ziplock bags (already had these supplies)....

      It was pretty easy and quick to do.

      I really loved this bouquet that I saw on Etsy but just could not see myself paying $115 for fake flowers. I decided to attempt on making it myself and I have to say I am really happy with the outcome.

      I ordered a bouquet that was already made from save-on-crafts.com for $18.99 - this is what it looked like when it arrived.

      I ordered 5 black ostrich feathers from them as well for $19.95, and the damask ribbon from etsy seller bowpeepbows for $5.00. I already had the tiffany blue ribbon that I had purchased at Michael's.

      I removed all of the leaves, little flowers, and the rhinestone springs from the bouqet and started adding the feathers. I then took the damask ribbon and just wrapped it around the ribbon that was already there and added the tiffany blue ribbon. Final touches - used the rhinestones that I had taken off and just added a few to some of the roses and to the tiffany blue ribbon. It took me a little over an hour to get it just the way I wanted it! And I saved $72.00.

      Here is the final product

                What an amazing job! I really like the labels for the lip balm and your flowers are just gorgeous! They look even better than your inspiration pic, plus you saved $75- you must be really happy about that. Your wedding is going to be incredible with all of these nice touches.
                Loving married life!

                  Wow!! My wedding is one week after yours and I have a LOT of my projects left to do... so at this point I give myself 7-days to finish them all and catch up to you because I'm totally jealous you're all done!

                  I love your bouquet... I know what Etsy bouquet you're referring to and you could have told me it was the same one and I would have totally believed you, VERY talented!
