Corrie's Wedding Planning Thread!!! LOTS OF PICS and DIY!!!

Recommended Posts

So after digging some things out from the closet and under the bed I found somethings I had forgotten about :) I guess that is what happens when you plan something for a year!

 

Since we have a small amount of quests traveling with us (16 in total) I was able to splurge for our OOT bags. I bought ring dishes on etsy for all of the girls on the trip.

And found some great toiletry bags on clearance (75% off) at Target just after Christmas

I bought some starfish jewelry from another BDW bride

If you haven't figured it out by now, I am obsessed with Vistaprint and getting items for free :)  Here is how I made out on items for our OOT bags and I am making a bag for each room.

And I bought our parents T-shirts (MOB, FOB, MOG and FOG shirts).  They were $2 each so I could not resist.

I was able to place enough orders (over the last 9 months or so) so that everyone will have each item in their bag.  I was able to get all the items for free and just had to pay for shipping.  It was kind of a pain b/c you can only order one free item per order, so I had to place 9 or 10 orders and pay separate shipping.  However, it was totally worth it!  Each order for shipping cost about $7-10, therefore, I still saved a ton of money.  I also had other items in my orders like invitations, postcards, business cards, thank-you cards and others items all for free :)

 

Until next time!

One more piece of exciting news before I leave for the night.. My shoes are almost most done!  I found this AMAZING website called Figgie Shoes, they also have a facebook page.  These shoes are absolutely amazing.  You send your shoes, and 12 items or words you want painted on your shoes, and then they are hand painted.  I figured since I paid almost nothing for my dress that I could splurge on a pair of hand-painted shoes :)  You must check out her facebook page https://www.facebook.com/FiggieShoes .  Anyhow, I received my email today that my shoes are complete and are being shipped..Thank goodness cause I was starting to panic that they might not make it before I leave on April 12th.  YAY!

 

Here are my original shoes that I sent to be painted. Please ignore my nosy dog in the background, I cannot sneak anything past him!

I will post the new version of my shoes when they arrive!

Good evening Ladies, so when I arrived home today there was a nice shoe package waiting for me.....I was soooo excited and the long wait was totally worth it!!  Here is the finished project.. Sorry I must post big pictures so you can see all the details :)

Sorry should have switched the right and left shoe around so it read "I do" and "Do I"  guess I was too excited.

Since our dog, Yoshi could not be with us, I made sure we still have a reminder of him on our wedding day :)

Sadly the pictures just don't seem to do them justice, the colors are so much more vibrant in person.

 

Until next time!
