    I just wanted to post what I have done so far as I am super proud of myself for accomplishing what I have. I never thought I would want to do this much DIY stuff but it's so much cheaper for us and I got what I really wanted.

     

    The invitations:

    The flowers:

    (My bouquet, followed by the BMs)

    Locket for my bouquet (will put a picture of my dad in it). Bought it on Etsy (IMG_0739.JPG

     

    Makeup Brush Roll (for my cousin who is doing my makeup) and little wristlets for the BMs (I'm gonna put their gift in the them):

    BMs gift (each necklace is personalized with their initial). Also bought on Etsy (IMG_0747.JPG

     

    And the handkerchief for my mom (IMG_0742.JPG

     

    I have a couple other things done as well (my ring is purchased and I made the guestbook as well) but I didn't take pictures of those. This is pic heavy enough as it is!

     

    Again, just wanted to share - I'm so excited!

        Did you make the makeup brush roll????  I love all your details so much!  They are going to love all the handmade goodness?  If you did make the make-up roll yourself would you mind sharing the pattern/ instructions??  Good Job!

          Thanks! Yup, I make the makeup brush roll. Wasn't really too difficult (I'm just a beginner sewer). Here's the link to the pattern I used: Roll-up Makeup Brush Case

          The only difference (I think) is that I purchased a thin vinyl for the plastic backing (so that the residual makeup from the brushes wouldn't dirty the fabric). If I make another one, I'll use a thicker vinyl. This one was a bit flimsy - but it did the job!

            Are your flowers silk? They look very realistic in the picture and I am so on the fence about making my own silk ones or just paying the extra for real ones at the resort (that I can't keep )

                Thanks for sharing all the great items you made!!

                 

                For the invites, is the starfish cutout a punch?  Do you mind sharing where you got it?  I have been looking for one and no luck yet.

                  Yup. It's from Martha Stewart. I couldn't find it anywhere in any store and I had my heart set on it. I think it might be discontinued. I finally found it on eBay. If you can wait until January, I might be able to sell it to you if you like.

                    Your flowers look really good.  I am so afraid of them looking funny in my pics, yet now I'm ready, I'm ready (in my spongebob voice)
