      Your parasol came out great! Can I ask where you bought the parasols from?

      Caramilk Favors


      We decided to make Caramilk bars for favors and I redesigned their labels just for us. We picked Caramilk's because they are distinctly Canadian.


      Here is the label:

      And here is hubby assembling them.

      I also hand painted a fuchsia parasol for our photos:


      1. Printed out "Just Married" on a wide format printer, cut out the letters and used adhesive spray to attach them to the parasol. I tried pinning but that made little holes, and tape wouldn't stickWedding Week 071.jpg
      2. Carefully traced the letters in pencil and removed the stencil. I stuck the parasol between couch cushions to hold it up straight. Wedding Week 072.jpg
      3. Did a quick outline with black paint and the filled in letters with black acrylic paint (I mixed in a little pearl so it wouldn't be as matte)Wedding Week 074.jpgWedding Week 075.jpg
      4. Let it dry for overnight and did another coat to make sure the letters really stood out. Wedding Week 084.jpg



      Revised Bridesmaid Bouquets


      I decided to take them apart and added rhinestone stephanotis just for some extra bling.

      My Second Veil


      Since I wasn't going to be wearing my first dress, I needed a veil that matched my new dress. Initially, I planned on making a long veil with a lace trim, but due to time constraints, I eliminated the lace and also decided that a really long veil would be too formal for me. But here is how I quickly made my DIY veil.


      1. Laid out fabric and folded it into thirds to approximately the length I wanted. Wedding Week 076.jpg
      2. Cut the bottom edge into a rounded shape, I did this freehand so it's not perfect, but gets the job done. Wedding Week 077.jpg
      3. Hand stitched across the top, get as close to the edge as possible and make sure to grab all the layers, and gathered the thread. Wedding Week 078.jpg
      4. Hand sewed it onto the veil comb. When I tried it on for hubby we decided it was a little too pouffy, so I cut one layer out. I wasn't about to take it all apart, so I took out the bottom layer. Wedding Week 079.jpg
