This may be a silly question but how do you plan on flying with your bouquet? I had my aunt make me a shell bouquet and now I have no idea how to package it to fly on the plane with me!!! Your wedding looks like it is going to be awesome. You look absolutely beautiful in your dress!!

After that write-up, I ended up adding some fabric from my momâ€™s wedding dress that she wore when she married my dad, onto the handle of the bouquet.
My dad passed away a few years ago, so I also got a memorial charm made by Etsy seller YourCharmedWedding. I sent the seller two pictures of him at family weddings, and she did a beautiful job.
I made the BM bouquets out of real-touch callas (Hobby Lobby) and cymbidium orchids (www.afloral.com). I also bought initial jewelry for their bouquets from the Oops section on www.bouquetjewels.com. Here is the link to my bridesmaidsâ€™ bouquet DIY post:
I loved these boutonnieres I found online but they were way out of my budget, and I knew I could make them on my own. I made the guitar one for Al, and the smaller pick bouts for the groomsmen, my stepdad and one in memory of my dad.

I even made a tiny bout for Cardboard Buster to wear during the wedding.
I posted a ridiculously pic-heavy thread about my OOT bags here:
For my BMs, I included some extra goodies in their bags: monogrammed jewelry rolls (Davidâ€™s bridal), bridesmaids cosmetics bags (Michaels), shirts for getting ready on the wedding day, some extra Vistaprint items (notebooks, monogrammed sticky notepads), and I paid for their dresses, shoes and hair for the wedding.
For the shirts for getting ready on the day of the wedding, I bought black tank-tops (Target), rhinestone decals and some iron-on lettering (Michaels).
We also put some extra goodies in our parents OOT bags, mostly team bride/groom stuff (hats, shirts, tote bags).
