Those are so cute.

That is the kind of invitation I am planning on doing (we got the idea from a friend who had received one). I like the coconut oil touch.

Where did you get the bottles and sand? Did Michaels or craft stores have them? I haven't had a chance to go shopping for the supplies yet.

 

..I also haven't picked a location yet so I think I have time. blush2.gif

We actually got the bottles from a local home-brewing store (for people who make beer and wine). They were very inexpensive there - about $1/bottle. If you have someplace like that in your area, definitely check them out.

 

Otherwise, we found a few places online that sold the bottles...

 

Message in a Bottle - Specialty Bottle

 

Message in a Bottle Invitations Announcements Wholesale - Plastic Bottles and Glass Bottles with Corks and Mailing Boxes - eBottles

 

If you order online, make sure you order the bottle mailers. We ordered the 'shoebox' size USPS.com boxes (free) and they are too large. I think we may order small vial size bottles for our placecards, so I'm going to order the mailers.

 

Sand and shells were from the local craft store :)

Sorry to hear that! I think they are such a great idea for a DW. I'd never heard of doing something like this until I started searching invites... your starfish invites are going to look awesome though! I can't wait to see them!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
