    I had decided a while ago I wanted to ask my bridesmaids by message in the bottles. While going through this site for another wedding I was planning I came across a brides "message in the bottles" they were soo adorable (sorry I don't remember the name) but I knew that I wanted to do mine like those. So when I started planning my wedding these are the very first DIY projects. 

     

    When my friends received these they did not open them.They thought I send them some kind of favor from our ladies night. Each one called and said "thank you for the favor" I had to ask them if they opened them and they said no. lol they thought they were too pretty to open.. When they opened them they were all excited and laughing.. and I mean non of them knew to open.. 

     

    The message in the bottle

     

    I bought the genie bottles with the corks from hobby lobby. I bought sand, small seashells, glitter letters, ribbon, and parchment paper which I burned the sides with lighter (which was very hard and very messy) from A.C.Moore. I ordered boxes from uline.com and got the charms from OOT. I'm a poet so I wrote individually poems for each one catering to how I know them and our friendship. 

     

    Here are the pictures

    When my fiance saw this he got competitive and wanted to do something equally cool. He decided to write a whole kidnapping card, and sent out top secret missions asking his groomsmen to be ninjas and enlist for this mission. He sent a ransom note with a book on how to be a ninja with a special ninja star.. Both book and ninja star came from amazon. The book is hiliarious, its a humorous book on how to be a ninja so it fit perfectly and I just happened to come across it on amazon cause we were only going to send out ninja stars with the cards.  I didn't get to take pics before he sent them out so but I manage to get some of it so you got an idea. He create the whole storyline and I did the pics and cropping of the card and we ordered them at zazzle.

      ohh and btw I don't know why my FI thought we were still in 2010 but he put 2010. I didn't realize it until after we had ordered them so we bought tiny labels and printed on them the correct date and and stuck them on there. Also I didn't do a great job with the zazzle thing because I cut the top part off so we have to do the same with the top part as well. I prolly should have erased my FI email address.. smh ohh well

        Oh wow! You did a great job but I'm so impressed by how involved and creative he is! I wish my guy would do something like this - he just says they know they're in the wedding. I can't imagine anyone saying no to the two of you (unless they really don't have the money)

          :) Thank you!... I think that sometimes I can go overboard on things and because my FI is so competitive he will do whatever it takes to feel he won... lol
