Favors

I saw this on Pinterest and loved them. Since we did Message in a Bottle invitations with sand and seashells -- these fit in perfectly.

I was thrilled to find plastic ornaments that relatively looked like glass. I bought them at Michaels. I didn't want to have to worry about dealing with glass.

I haven't started the assembly yet as I am still waiting to hear back from Meredith to make sure that this will not be a problem bringing onboard and off. I have heard that some have had problems bringing "sand" and "shells" back. Although, I cannot foresee this to be a problem as they are "craft" items, but you never know ... all I ever hear is "no" ...

Here is the picture that I am using for my inspiration found on Pinterest.



I'll be sure to post my version of these when I get the A-OK

Your ring is beautiful and I'm so happy you went with the DCL! Yay! Another DCL bride! I am loving your details in everything!

We were also wanting to do the Under the Sea cake but we really wanted a cake topper so are deciding on a different cake. Your dress looks so magical!

I am definitely looking forward to the next post!

The invitations, newsletter, and postcards were such an awesome idea! I really loved the detail you put with the starfish on the bottle!

The dress is so beautiful! Please keep us all updated! :P
Thank you! I really loved the idea of the Message in a Bottle and I felt the same way about the Coconut! Smells so good! I was disappointed about the Under the Sea Cake ... it fits so well with what we are doing But honestly, not too fond of any of the choices ... but it's just cake! Congratulations to you! Yay! Will have to catch up on your PJ !!

First Aid Kit - What I Made


I found these plain Brown Paper Kraft bags that were on clearance making them only $0.06/bag!
This is my version, I made the image on my computer and ran it through the printer.
They might not be as cute as the muslin bags, but if the guest throw them away, I won't care as much!



This is what is inside the bag: Chapstick with SPF; Advil; Mickey Band-aids; Aloe Vera; Cleansing Wipes; Bath & Body Works Anti Bacterial Gel (Caribbean Escape)

Wedding Wands

4 months to go, I feel like I should be doing a lot more than what I have been doing ... With Christmas right around the corner, my focus has been somewhat elsewhere.

This week I am starting to make wedding wands. I saw these on Pinterest ... many different forms and different ways people make them ... some have also added bells.

I bought the "wands" (aka dowels) at Walmart for $0.97 for a pack of 16. I also bought the satin ribbon there as well for $1.97 -- They didn't have the teal color I was looking for, so I am hoping to pick it up this week at Michael's or Hobby Lobby. I am doing several different colors, for a tropical feel ... These will be used in place of rose petals thrown

Here is an orange one ...

I had thought about using those for flower girls but now my soon to be nieces aren't going to be able to go. What are your wedding colors? Teal is my favorite color.

I actually don't have set colors, just tropical
My daughter is wearing teal, she's the only one in our wedding party. I have 4 nieces and my DF has 10! So, we opted to have just our daughter to be in our party.

I'm sorry they are not able to come

Updated Wedding Wands ...

Here is what you will need for the wedding wands. I used silk ribbon 5/8 in several different colors since I really don't have a set color.



I cut it longer than the dowel, as you will be twisting it around the dowel.



Here, I have the two pieces of ribbon attached together at the top and have added hot glue on the backside as I will start to wrap the ribbon around the dowel.



Here is the finished project. You will want to run the bottom of the ribbon under a candle, or match, etc. so it will not fray. I didn't do it at the top because you were wrapping it and it will be hidden. They are pretty simple to make.

Cake Topper

I received word back from Meredith that we will be permitted to bring a "message in a bottle" for our cake topper. Since those were our invites, I am thrilled that they are permitting us to be able to incorporate it in our cake. (( I'm in search of finding a small glass bottle this week at the craft stores! ))

Obviously, our cake will look nothing like this ...

Porthole Magnets

I loved the ideas of doing magnets, but unfortunately, not everyone that is coming are a big fan of "disney"
... so instead of making personalized magnets, I ran across this thread that offered free images to make porthole magnets.
Here are three that I have finished (pay no attention to the finger prints on my fridge!)
These wrap around the "porthole" on the outside of your door that has the stateroom number on it. I plan on making a different one for each stateroom.
My DF is a firefighter, so that one is for us on the first day





Here is the thread that I found:

Yes, I did. I bought the magnet sheets, they are pricey though. I was very impressed on how easy this was and great quality! But you could also do what Jillian did. She has a great tutorial on her PJ.

Flowers

Since Disney charges so much for flowers, that you cannot even take off board, I decided that I would make my own.


My Mom and I went to Hobby Lobby, flowers were 50% off this past week. Here are a few that we have picked out ...


These (Calla Lily) are for my daughter's bouquet ... actually, her's will be the hot pink ones, I realize now this picture is an orange one that I took ...



A Yellow Rose for my DF's dad ... My DF lost his mother a few years ago, and his dad always gave her yellow roses.



This is going to be incorporated in with my mom and grandma's wrist corsage, as well as the color next to it, sorry I didn't take a picture.



We are still unsure of what my Dad is going to wear ... he's rather picky.


I decided to go with the Tropical Bouquet ...



We are still deciding on DF's boutonniere ...

Magnets

One I made with magnetic paper and the other one I made with photo paper and laminated it. Can you tell which one?




I honestly like the magnetic paper quality better, but ... after hearing they get stolen, which makes me so mad, I decided I should go the route that were a little bit cheaper. Since I already had the equipment, nothing extra was spent there.
