So far my favorite find so far has been my bridesmaid gifts! I found the cutest wine glass “stickers” (safe for hand wash) and they customize it to however you want it!! I actually found the lady on here, but here is a link to her page. Super cute and very cheap!!!

My favorite special touch so far is probably the custom cake topped I had made on etsy as a surprise for Fiance. It’s a bride modeled after our all white bull terrier w/ a little white tulle veil and she is holding a bouquet with the same color flowers I will have, and the groom is of a white bull terrier with a black eye patch and black spot on his back (what Fiance wants our next E.B.T. to look like) and he has on a black top hat! Fiance has no clue and won’t see it until the big day can’t wait to see his face when he sees it!

Bump…I think this could be such a great/helpful thread!

I am new to wedding planning but the greatest find has been our venue.  It is a beautiful wooden and stone building on a little lake with an awesome view of the Laurel Mountains for…$1000! Everything similar was 2, 3, even 4 thousand dollars!

Other than the ‘bee I also really like snippet and ink, they have some awesome inspiration boards on there.

I loved my little placecard holders and my favors.

One “special touch” is my bouquet charm: it’s an elephant with a pearl charm. My grandmother used to collect elephants with their trunks up and since we were so close, after she passed away in 2007, her collection was passed to me. Its very hard for me knowing she’ll never meet FH and will not be able to celebrate with us on our wedding day, so I wanted the charm for comfort. Here is a link to the charm:


A second “special touch” won’t make an appearance at our wedding, but I love it all the same. It’s a custom stamp with FH’s last name (just his last name only– no Mr. or Mrs.) and our address, that I use now when I send out mail (bills) and will use when I send out our invitations and stamp on our RSVP card envelopes. Here is a link to the stamp:

Hard to choose… I was pretty in love with our favors (homemade vanilla, from a SMP tutorial) and our escort cards. Our sign from this etsy seller was beautiful too, got a lot of compliments and we’re now enjoying displaying it in our home!
