    I used fabric not ribbon, though I have heard of them being done that way as well.  I used satin for my hair flowers but this is a flatter look, not such a sheen!  I picked it up on clearance just to play around with and it just happened to match the flip flops perfectly!

    How did you make those flower clips? They are GORGEOUS!!!

    Is it burned ribbon? I did those using organza for my invitations but these look more like satin or something. Please share....I LOVE them! :)

      I used afloral to get my flowers and although the shipping is pretty high, the flowers really are great! I posted my pics in the Iberostar Rose Hall Thread. I priced out all the main places in Canada and it still worked out to be the cheapest!

      Have any of you used any canadian or other providers for realtouch flowers?  Any tips are appreciated before I pull the trigger on this order!

       

      It might be worth waiting to do a trip to the US to go to hobby lobby or something.....

        Tori - I would love to see a picture of how your hair flowers turned out.  I'm sure they are beautiful.

         

        What are you girls using to cut your cake?  Are you bringing down something with you or does the resort have something you can use?

            you can get some very fancy and pretty barefoot jewels. but i think wedges or flip flops dressed up with flower clips work great too...its all a metter of taste though

              So cute Tori! Ihave started making barefoot jewelry for my BMs but I bought some white flip flops that I might try making flowers for. May I ask how you secured them to the flops?

                      Thanks Kat

                       

                      I am taking the evening today and tomorrow to re-group. I will make my lists and try to get some stuff done :) I have already delegated speach writing to my FI LOL so i will see if there is anything else on the list i can get him to help with.

                       

                      its mostly difficult right now because we just moved and have a lot of painting and reno's to do. Some will wait until after the wedding but some had to get done right away. AND i am planning my sisters baby shower all at the same time....i think i am crazy LOL
