@acw271011 It's because the store is closing so they are trying to get rid of all inventory. It was 50% off. But I think if its still there in August it will be 70% off. So I'm going to keep my eye on it!
Not too much to update here. I feel like things have been slowing down now with my wedding planning. I am almost done making my wedding invitations! I have about 4 left to make. I ran out of ribbon to tie on the starfish charms right at the end of making them all haha. They look really cute with they are all done and packaged up with a teal starfish stamp on the back of the envelope. I haven't given out lots yet but just to people as I see them (since there is no rush seeing as my wedding is over 7 months away). But so far the feedback I've been getting is very positive. Everyone says they are really cute! Hard work pays off! haha
I had another Michaels extravaganza the other day though haha. instead of doing the raffia starfish chair hangers that I intended on making, I found these burlap tassels ($3) that are a little bit smaller than the raffia starfish chair hangers. I'm going to tie some teal burlap string and starfish onto each of them. I have 8 of them (so hopefully I'll have no more than 4 rows down the aisle. Then I will re-use these for the dinner on the wedding party chairs! I also found cute little chalkboards to hang on our chairs that will say Mrs. and Mr. for my FI and I! They were only like $1 at Michaels. I'll post pictures once I actually make everything. It will probably be a fair amount of work since I have no idea what I'm doing haha.
We've also decided that as a guest book we are going to do a "Message in a bottle". I found the PERFECT teal colored bottle that looks like glass but is actually plastic which is great for travel. It unscrews in the middle so will easily be able to read everyones messages. We are going to put a note for people to leave us a message in the bottle for us to read on our 1year anniversary! It should be really cute! I'm going to jazz up the bottle by adding some burlap string to it. I'll post pictures once its made.
My bridesmaids dresses arrived on Friday too! They are so nice! I can't wait to see all of the girls in their dresses. And my mum was such an angel! She paid for the bridesmaids dresses for the girls! She wanted to do something nice for them since they have to spend so much money to come to Mexico for the wedding. They don't know that their dresses have been paid for yet so I'm excited to tell them!! Annnnnddddd.... all that bridesmaid drama?! When I saw her at my dress appointment she was talking about coming and saying she was actually going to go for longer (like 10 days or 2 weeks). So I'm so excited that I don't have to stress about that any more! Smooth sailing from here on out!
