Welcome to AHR Craft Hour with Amy & Victoria!!! PIC HEAVY!!

Recommended Posts

Well, I guess it was more than an hour, but in Mexico, my hubby was taking a nap while we were working on favors. He finally said, "OK, enough of Craft Hour with Amy and Jesse." So that's the new phrase for anything like what was going on tonight!! Our AHR is on Saturday, so of course, my last-minute-self and wonderful bridesmaid completed quite a few projects tonight!

 

First is my sand ceremony shadow box. There is no way my monsters (hairless kittens) would leave alone any kind of container with sand (lid or not!). So, that's why I decided to do this:Click the image to open in full size.

 

Next is my card holder. Victoria used this for her wedding, but we changed the decorations to suit our beach wedding: Click the image to open in full size.

These are the cards for my guest book (they'll sign them, then I have 4 girls taking pix of everyone specifically for this reason, so I can put their pic by their advice):Click the image to open in full size.

And last but not least, these are the starfish that were referenced in my AHR Vent post from earlier today! Click the image to open in full size.

I need to finish the starfish (the ribbon is cut, just need to tie the tags on). I might do 1 more display board of random favorite pix from the wedding day. We'll have our slideshow playing, and have a digital frame going of different events throughout the week. I think that's everything!

 

Off to bed now at 1:38 a.m.!!!

Amy

 

***Sorry these are huge! Thought I figured out how to re-size, but it's not working!!

I love how you have incorporated the little details of your DW into the decor so that your AHR guests can get the whole experience. Hope you don't mind if I steal your awesome crafty ideas idea.gif : sand ceremony shadow box and the card basket with the starfish brooch. Where did you get the shells you used to pour sand during your ceremony?

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
