Am so excited to share my first DIY for our wedding. It's a combination of several idea seen on here and other websites so I wanted to give back too!
We found the boxes for them at the Christmas tree store. If you have in your city, I highly recommend. There were only 3 wooden boxes but luckily there were tin boxes that had the same face and 2 small wooden boxes which I decided would be perfect for my brothers
(THE WOODEN LARGE BOX)
(THIS IS THE METAL BOX)
I was hesitant at first about the passports but now they are my favorite part. Also, my FI spotted them at the store and was like " I want those in my boxes!" so I went with it. I'm glad I did because they worked out perfectly to place information about the wedding, their role, what they may wear. We also printed out a pic of each of them and stuck in the place where the usual passport photo goes...
Here is the breakdown of prices.
The boxes were all on sale already plus their was an extra 50% of sale prices so they were a really good buy!!
Auto Wood Box LG 1.49 each * 3= $4.47
Auto Metal Box Lg .99 each * 3= $3
Auto Wood Box Sm 1.24 each *2 = $2.48
Total= 9.95 - minus tax
The margarita mix 8.99 * 2= 17.98= 2.24 per person
Don Julio Nips 4.99 * 8= 39.92
Passports 2.39 from Michael's...they were 40% off. Went to A.C. Moore and found them for 2.99 without a discount! So I feel like I got ripped off because I could also used a coupon at A.C. Moore which would of made it cheaper. But lesson learned.
We also spend like an additional 5 for printing the pictures for the passports.
All in all I think we spend about $12 for each.
