    We are exactly 20 days until our departure to Mexico!

    I am in the final stages of planning and gathering stuff for our Big Day!  We decided that we want to do a sand ceremony.  Unfortunately, I waited until the last minute (kind of forgot...) to purchase one.  And when I went online to search.....I was quickly astounded by the prices for glass jars (even if they were personalized...)

     

    So.....

     

    I decided to DIM (Do It Myself)!!!

    I stalk my local GoodWill on a regualr basis so I know that I would be able to find glasses at a cheap price...

    $1.00 for Big Glass (GoodWill - I was so happy to find a glass with a cork!!)

    $1.00 (Goodwill 2 smaller glasses - I wanted them to be different for an authentic look :))

    Shells - Dollar Tree - $1.00

    Starfish - @$1.33 (Pack of 6 cost @ $8.00 Big Lots...Starfish stink!!!)

    Raffia - $1.00 (Bag at Walmart)

     

    Total = $5.33 for my set!!!

    I will get turquoise & yellow sand for the ceremony.

     

    I hope you like!


    So Amazing......July 4, 2012!!!!!!

        Thanks JennyBenz!!!  My fiance loves it too.  I had recently had a less than pleasant experience with spray paint in our back yard so he was pleased he did not have to clean up!
