I had really wanted something unique and special for my Flower Girl baskets.  Something a little outdoorsy to go with our outdoor fall ceremony.  I eventually decided on moss/ribbons/flowers.  I spend all of last summer saving my Michaels/Joanns coupons to buy everything cheap.

And they were so freakin’ ugly–fuzzy green blobs.

I took them home with me, hoping my mother, sister and I could resurrect them.  We threw them out, got generic ones at Michaels. 

Two nights before the wedding, the Best Man (you are reading that correctly) and I were up until midnight attaching purple ribbon and crystal stickers to doctor them up

Furthermore, our fail of a florist was supposed to make little tie-on corsages that matched the Bridesmaid or Best Man bouquets.  These were never included.

@kermie:  I know what you mean about cats and tulle!  When our Bridesmaid or Best Man got married, one of his cats chewed up the bride’s veil about 1.5 hours before the ceremony.  Luckily it was DB and they quickly steamed out another one, but there was $110 down the drain:(

Here are the very generic Flower Girl baskets:

Making chocolates for our favors.  They took forever and towards the end both my mother and I were ready to just buy chocolate.  Some didn’t come out perfectly but we didn’t care, we just bagged them and called it a day.

I felt a bit like this with the invites.

My veil. It was not worth the 200$ or even $500 I might have saved. Ick!
