      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

      For the guys I bought flasks and ties

        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.

         

        Welcome postcard

        Calendar Magnet

        Canvas Tote Bag

        Hats

        Magnetic Note pads

        Mousepad

        Mug

        Notepads-these are my favorite, they have lined paper inside too!

        Keychains

        Postcards

         

        Postcards OOT.jpg

         

        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!

              Thanks!  It was an easy and cheap project and will add so much to the table decor.

                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 :)

                 

                Shoes back.jpg

                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 :)

                shoes right outside.jpg

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

                 

                Until next time!
