        That wasn't my actual garter it was just one that looked similar.  I actually got mine from a bridal gown store I popped into one day to look at jewelry.  But you could just buy some gems and make one yourself!  With such a bright orange it may have been more difficult for me to make, plus when I found it and it was like $15 I was like "one more thing checked off my list"

          Okay ladies I'm going to start my updates... We leave 3 weeks from Tuesday 


          This was a quick add-on to the DIY projects- another stolen idea, but that's what this website is foooooor (so please- steal away!!)  Simple ribbons hot-glued to wooden sticks which I painted with some champagne-shimmer paint.  I bought blumeboxes for centerpieces and just got an extra for this.  


          Another fairly simple project.  I would have done more to it but I'm running out of stamina- plus I had a deadline of Friday as I worked this weekend and start grad school tomorrow morning.  One side says this and the other has a ghandi quote. My bridesmaids and I will put our boutiques in them. (Ivory roses)


          Super fantastice Etsy find- Scrabbyscrap made me a personal scrapbook which includes a page (front and back) per couple.  They will write a note to us, their favorite memory, and advice for our marriage, and we will put a picture of them on their page upon return.  Super excited!!  Scrabbyscrap did an amazing job- it was a little expensive but I have said all along that pictures are going to be my priority $$ as that is what we will have to look back at our time.  The vendor was quick to respond to my original messages but did not send me any pictures while making it which I requested.  It turned out better then I imagined so I'd still buy from her again (future gifts?!).  It did take her awhile so plan ahead!!  I bought it this winter and kinda forgot about it- what a great surprise when it showed up on my door!!IMG_0618.JPG

            ... continuing with the scrapbook, cause I love it that much!!  I some of the pages...


            ... and this is the envelope that I put each page in.  This will go in the OOT bag and be returned to us at the farewell breakfast.


            This will be tied onto green paper fans with wooden ends with the same green ribbon on the waves.  


            These will be tied onto the maracas shown in the beginning of the thread.  They will be at each place setting.  One side says "shake 4 kiss", the other a name of guest.  I used chalkboard paper from Hobby Lobby with gold stamp ink.  The letters SHIMMER in person 


            Do you not LOVE our signature drink sign?!?  Hellllllo mog pog :)  Mojitos are green baby

              Our sand ceremony supplies.  Just some more Hobby Lobby 50% off stuff...  The third vial will hold sand from the beach and be our "grounded in The Lord" sand.


              I'm a little disappointed in these, but they we a last-minute add to the OOT bags.  I wanted to do personalized flip-flops but my family has to big of feet!!    This is not the color I wanted and is hard to read on the cups, but oh well, no turning back now.  No very expensive at least!!


              Because all of my guest love the idea of my homemade jewelry I whipped out these bad boys for all the women.  They'll be in little boxes by their place settings for the dinner, the men will have cigars!


              Sorry these are in no order at all, but here's our OOT bags.  70% off after christmas!!  I added the welcome of course!!

                Last but certainly NOT least... the grand finally (unless I decide to post more later)


                My favorite.  The itinerary booklet.  This was a beast as I made them all from scratch.  But I'm so happy with the way they turned out.  All the paper really is the same color, it's just the picture that looks funny.  They pretty much describe themselves.  




                Hope all of this information helps someone out!!  Please check again in June when I post some AFTER PICTURES!!!  (Not that I'm excited for it to be over...)

                  Almost forgot about this updated picture of my sexy groom :)  I can't wait to see him while walking down the isle!!!!  He decided to add a tie.  I think it was an excellent decision.
