DIY: Will you be my...(groomsmen/bridesmaid) my first DIY :D

Recommended Posts

Hey so to ask my fiances friends to be his groomsmen we actually took an idea off of this website. We made personalized beers. We made 10beers(two for each). It cost us $30, $20 for beer and $10 for label paper(from walmart, one page was one big label.



To start we took a picture of a label from Alexander Keith's Beer, we copied into paint and used the paint option to colour over all of the writing. we then saved and copied the picture into a word document and used word art to write Taggart's Groomsmen and then their names, we also copied a picture of the Cuban flag(where we are getting married) and placed it over the flag on the original picture. after we both checked it out we printed it on the label paper and then cut it out. We took the old labels off. And after that it was just sticking them onto the bottles. He is having them all over tomorrow and I cant wait till he gives them the beers.(time=1hr)




For the bridesmaids i bought little boxes from Micheals($3 each) and sanded them, I then painted them in my wedding colours and painted the tops white.(two coats if anyone cares :) ) I then varnished them(3 Coats). At micheals I also found little already painted wooden decals($0.80each), I also varnished those. And then just glued them on. For the bracelets I found sterling silver bracelets at micheals(normally $9.99 but they were on sale for $5.99each) And little starfish charms($2.79each. they also had sand dollars, flipflops,suns like 70 different kinds). For these all I did was open the jump ring on the charm, placed it on the middle of the bracelet and closed it. All together it cost $39(for three sets). (time=1.5hrs, but over three days because each layer of paint/varnish dried for 3hrs, the bracelets took 10mins).


Sorry about the pictures they are just from my phone.IMG-20110903-00009.jpgIMG-20110903-00010.jpg

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
