These were fairly simple to make even though I had never done any beading. I purchased all my supplies at Michael's (with a nice coupon!) 

 

Supplies:

Beads

Clear Elastic Thread

Beading Needle

Patience and no kids! lol (We have an 18 month old son and this project was definitely done after bed time)

 

All I did was string the beads onto the elastic using the beading needle and once it was long enough to fit around my ankle made a knot. Then I added the beads for the long part that goes over top my foot. Once that was at a good length, I added the smaller beads that go around the toe. Then, I made a circle with the small beads to create a loop for the toe, tying a knot between the toe loop and the long string of beads. That's it! I know it sounds kind of complicated, but I can't really type the instructions clearer. It's really trial and error, though. Just basically string beads long enough to fit your foot and you'll be good to go. 

 

I made myself an ivory pair:

Please excuse my unmanicured, not-so-cute feet. My feet really don't look THAT dinosaur-ish in real life...it's hard to take a good picture of your own foot! lol

 

 

My bridesmaids, MOH, and flower girl will all wear purple:

Happy Planning, ladies! I know this one is a little confusing as far as my instructions, so please let me know if you have any questions! :)

I picked out a pre-maid pair on Etsy, but one pair was $30 which I thought was a little pricey. Can any of you tell me approximately how much you spent to make each pair? I love the idea of making them myself, it seems more personal!

It's definitely cheaper to make your own! I don't remember exactly what it cost me but I know I got all my beads at michaels and waited until they were on sale and combined a coupon. I would guess approximately $6/ set of sandals. :)

Barefoot sandals are great! I might be making them instead of buying them since they tend to be on the pricey side :) Great Job!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
