Kay can you tell me which Etsy vendor you purchased your embroidered handkerchiefs from? I know you posted it on here somewhere! I am looking to get one for my dad! Also were you pleased with the price and quality of the hanky and stitching?

Hey csho the Hanki is great quality and perfect the seller is Elegant Monogramming :)

Ebay! Just search ebay and I got them fairly cheap and free shipping... then I bought tanks in coral for my girls at Giant Tiger!

I found my reception shoes this weekend!! I am going to wear a pair of small heels that I have worn as bridesmaid shoes for the ceremony part. They match my dress and are the perfect height for the length of my dress. And then I am switching into sandals after the ceremony. I am in love with them and the best part they were only $15 a Winners! I had seen them before but were 40$ and this time they were on sale, so I really couldn't pass them up! Plus they'll serve as my something blue (or you know turquoise!). And seriously could they be any more tropical with a pineapple on them? Hahaha

I also made a Burlap Banner this weekend. I had planned on buying one off Etsy and then realized I could probably make it for much cheaper. I bought burlap for about 1.45$ and I already had the paint, so this cost me pretty much nothing lol! I just cut the burlap into squares, printed off lettering that I liked (same font that I used on my invitations) and then cut the letters into squares and placed them behind the burlap. I was able to see the outline of the letter through the burlap and painted over top of it! It was sooooo easy to do. All I have left to do is glue the twine to the back (which means finally buying a glue gun lol!). I am going to hang this on my Guest Book table (as I am sure you could have guessed). I also painted wooden letters which spell out L O V E for the table in the same colour. And will have a vase with some flowers and of course starfish. Also I am going to use a frame (probably with burlap as the background) and write out "Please Sign Our Guestbook". I am so excited to see how it all comes together but think it will look great! I found these awesome flowers at Winners which I am going to use for my centerpieces. I have decided to go with the glass vases instead of the coral one. What do you guys think?

Set up for the head table plus the starfish and candles you can see below.

The LOVE letters and the coral vase will be used on the guest book table.

 

The unfinished burlap banner.

 

Anyhow I am super excited with how everything is turning out and I am super impressed with how crafty I can be when I put my mind to it!

Ok sooooo its been a really good weekend/ MOnday and I apparently have a bunch of updates! Sorry to inundate you guys with so much! But I also received my coral organza sashes in the mail today which was super exciting! I bought them off ebay for like 35$ for 50 of them and they shipped in less then 3 weeks!

 

We also received all of our engagement photos today! I cannot wait to get home and look at them! And lastly I purchased my wedding band today!!!! I cannot wait to get it! I had to send it out to get sized but should receive it back in about a week or so!

 

 

 

It took me forever to decide on a band, but ultimately I went with my first instinct; I just ended up going with a bigger diamond weight of the ring (its 0.25 ctw). I love it sooooooo much, its perfect with my e-ring!! And I love it on its own as well! These pictures don't even really do it justice! And not to mention it was on sale for 50$ plus I had a $100 credit for doing a survey online so I got it a great deal on it! I am soo happy with my choice!
