My fiancé and I are planning a large wedding (350) guests and paying for it ourselves (we are older). While finances are no issues with us since we are both well established in our careers I wanted to personalize a lot of our wedding items. However, since we are both principals time is not always on our side. So I decided to personalize my bridal party gifts instead because I wanted their items to come from the heart. Thus far this is what I have completed, what do you bees think?
Blinged out flip flops so they can change out of their heels to dance the night away.
Painted (our wedding color) box with their initial to hold their necklace and earrings.
share what you have done so far.

jenilynevette: Wow! You did a wonderful job on everything! I love your love letters box and that floral arrangement! I am DIYing my bouquets and this is great inspiration 🙂
I have a lot of DIY projects currently on the go but I’ve only finished my Save-The-Date Cards, invitations and a trial batch of seashell chocolates for my favors!
Sorry for the huge pics!

Ooooh these are so pretty! Great job bees!
Here’s my DIY stuff for my 1920s/Gatsby wedding.
Voltive mercury glass– so much cheaper than to buy them pre stained
DIY photobooth guestbooks (before after pic)
Glitters under bridesmaid shoes
Mum and I started a shop on etsy because of all the boutonnieres we made trying to see which would fit the theme. (featherglam is name of store)
And finally made napkin rings

mmnnhh: Thanks! I actually really loved diying everything, but I love crafting so it was more of a hobby than a chore!

Wow ladies! I’m impressed. Love it all. I’ve been working on DIY projects for our vow renewal for our 25th Anniversary. Love all you’ve done. Will try to post later. You’re all very talented!
