- Wedding: May 2018
I got married in May, and although I haven’t been active on Weddingbee lately, I wanted to come back on here & post a bit more before I officially leave the hive…
I used quite a few different vendors and services, and wanted to review them on here in hopes of helping future brides.
This was one of my favorite little touches for my wedding. My grandparents could not attend my wedding, and I really wanted to do something special to include them in my big day. Therefore, I searched on Etsy, and found these delightful bouquet charms. Basically, these little 1″ squares hold pictures on them & you can tie them to your bouquet. I ordered mine from: http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=18989 (or go to Etsy, and search for Designs by Tami/ Bouquet charms). I did a lot of research on bouquet charms and these ones were BY FAR the most reasonably priced. I wanted them to be simple and sophisticated, yet I didn’t want to break the bank. At roughly $10 per charm (prices subject to Tami’s site– don’t take this post as her final price!), these were VERY affordable.
I decided to use pictures of my grandparents as couples, so one picture contained both my grandmother and grandfather. I also put a picture on the front and a picture on the back of each charm. Total, I had four pictures on two charms.
The process was so easy. Tami was great to work with. After initially contacting her on etsy, we emailed back and forth a few times, as I outlined what I was looking for and emailed her the pictures I wanted to use. She got back to me very quickly, and had edited and cropped the pictures. She sent them to me for approval, and asked me to select from black and white, color and sepia. I picked the sepia options that she showed me. The best part was she showed me my pictures in those three options, so I could see exactly what they were going to look like. Once I picked them, she finalized my charms and mailed them off to me.
Like I said- DESIGNS BY TAMI was great to work with. She was quick and very professional, and the finished product was great. It brought many tears to my aunts & uncles eyes when I showed them to everyone– they all thought it was great that their parents/my grandparents would be with me as I walked down the aisle, even if they couldn’t travel to be there.
