chitownyogini :  My centerpieces weren’t a fail but I’ll share anyway 🙂 I used those gel water beads and layered them in a vase with plastic pearls, and then filled the vase up with water so the pearls disappeared and it made the pearls look like they were floating!! Super cheap and easy to make.

I DIYed a lot! My fiance and dad did a great job with everything! However, one of the things I did was I made a beautiful velvet ring boc (Mrs. Box style) and all I had to do was put a rose gold letter on the top… and I put it on the bottom instead.

chitownyogini :  I made my own bouquet and bouts – I think they came out pretty well, but my attempt to make my own head peice was a total veil-fail. 

I found this beautiful lace at the mill-end store. They sell remnants and end units. Which means, once it’s gone, it’s gone. I bought what I thought was MORE THAN plenty, but once I started to attach it to the tulle, I realized I was probably 3-4 yards short.  

Also, while I was working on it, my puppy got into the fabric and ripped it a bit. It came off uneven and ruined the drape of the tulle; there was no way to get one piece long enough to reach the floor like I wanted. 

I’m bummed, because I thought the lace was perfect, but I still have plenty of time to come up with plan B. Luckily I only had about $9 invested in materials…
