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

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:
- 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 stick
- Carefully traced the letters in pencil and removed the stencil. I stuck the parasol between couch cushions to hold it up straight.
- 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)
- Let it dry for overnight and did another coat to make sure the letters really stood out.
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.
- Laid out fabric and folded it into thirds to approximately the length I wanted.
- Cut the bottom edge into a rounded shape, I did this freehand so it's not perfect, but gets the job done.
- 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.
- 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.

Wow...I just found your thread...you are one crafty girl! I would totally be interested in your Caramilk template if you're willing to share...that's my FI's favourite treat and I'd love to put them in the goodie bags at the resort!
