May 2011 Brides!

Recommended Posts

once i figured out the size i wanted (2" x 6 1/2"), they were quite fast and easy to do! having a real matchbook out for reference helped. i used cardstock.
a trimmer with a scoring "blade" made things so much easier.

My real touch bouquet - i know they don't match mine, but i had already deposited for real touch bouquets before discovering instructions for these really cute flowers so i decided to buy mine and make the BM ones.

Rosie everything looks great! 

I need to get the motivation to start some of my DIY projects, but I keep coming up with excuses.  I want to do my own ceremony programs, welcome books for the guests, and "survival kits" for the OOT bags. 

But I got my invites finished today and they'll all be out the door tomorrow, so at least I'm getting some things done :)

91 days for the May 6th brides!!

May 16, 2011 at Barcelo Maya Palace.

 

We were there to check out the site in July and we preferred Barcelo over Grand Palladium.  Wish we had time for more scouting...
