        Great stuff! I love the bridesmaid invitation. I saw a similar one on pinterest and definitely using that idea to ask my bridesmaids. I wonder if there are any creative ways the guys can invite their friends/family to be part of the bridal party?

                  I apologize for the giant gap in time, I've bee squeezing things in when I can and haven't photographed anything! OK, here goes:

                  Invite 9DIU) Ignore the date, I had to change that later ;)   I printed these on flat cards at Vista print, pretty basic.  I didn;t want to go nuts on invites since you basically only send them to the people who've booked anyway

                   

                  My DIY ring shell for our flower girl: (Sorry no rings in it ;)  I found shells at Michaels and then painted them with an irridestant shimmer to make them more blingy.

                   

                   

                   

                   

                  Flower girls' dress (Ordered online). It's so stinkin cute I can't wait to share the photos of her wearing it!! 

                   

                  My garter & toss garter from Etsy Vender nanarosedesigns.  Pretty much in love with those!

                   

                   

                  My shoes, David's Bridal

                   

                   

                   

                  Something Blue, Etsy Vendor forweddingsake

                   

                   

                   

                  My Dress, from Ethos Bridal in Edmonton.  I can;t remember the name but I'll update it when I have it back.  These are from yesterday's fitting at my friend's sewing studio. I'm very lucky that my seamstress will be com,ing to Mexico!  This dress was basically a crazy find, the only one in the store and fir me right off the rack!  We haven't actually done any alterations to it, that's just how it fits  FINALLY being tall pays off ;)

                   

                   

                   

                   

                   

                  My Ring (We don't have the bands yet, I'll update when they come in from the jeweler!  FI custom desgined this with the jeweler, so it took quite a long time to get it (you might say I was getting very impatient ;) but in the end I totally understood what I was waiting for.  I love this ring so mcuh, it's so ME, and to know that he chose everything about it, start to finish makes it 100% more special.  He said he didn't want to just buy one at the store because it wouldn't be unique like I am

                    Mason jars for table centerpieces.  I plan to get loose flowers from the resort and have my mom & aunt make arrangements, as they are both very good florsits.  My om has been collecting to vintage blue jars and we have enough for the head table to be done in those (for the bridal party's floweres.  I wrapped the twine around and secured the small sand dollar with hot glue

                     

                     

                    Random scatter gems for the table, and the fairy balls light up, they'll float in the vases!

                     

                    Table place cards for guests, DIY on Photoshop

                     

                     

                    Reserved signs for our parents (Photoshop), to be hung off chair backs

                     

                     

                     

                     

                    My bridal party gifts:  The hangers were DIY by me, just wooden hangers and a bow tied.  The necklaces are from Etsy vendor allstrungout1. They are each personalized with initials :)  The beach bags have flip flops, the necklace, hanger, lip gloss and a pashmina

                     

                     

                     

                     

                    Gifts for our mothers, handmade hankerchiefs from Etsy Vendor mollyandmom.  I plan to give these to our moms on the day of

                     

                     

                     

                    My DIY cake topper.  I had seen something super silmilar on Etsy but it was really pricey, so I found the right shells at Michaels and then destroyed a cheap pearl necklace from Claries for the rest.  Again, the irridescent shimmer paint on the shells!

                     

                     

                    Hanger for my dress from Etsy Vendor wisconman.  I just added the bow to match the BM's hangers I made

                     

                     

                    Our guest book.. I did this at Mixbook.  The theme was actually a bridal shower I just moved a bunch of stuff around.  I love it!  The sandcastle feather pen my mom found right after we got engaged.  I'm pretty sure the pen won't work on the pages, and we'll end up using sharpies, but I just love it so I wanna bring it anyway!   I used the book sort of as a picture/guestbook as there won't be a ton of people there to sign it so there's lots of photos too

                     

                     

                     

                     

                    These are my pride and joy! LOL.  The straws are from Etsy vendor BonFortune and the flags are something I made up in photoshop.  I absolutely love them and I hope I can convince them to make us a signature cocktails so our first drinks can have these little cuties in them!!

                     

                     

                     

                    I think that's all for now.  I need to photograph my jewelery and get our rings and guys pics up so I'll keep working. I hope you're enjoying so far!!  Three weeks to go, this girl is in the push in a major way! Wish me luck :)
