The makings of a wedding....

I decided to do some of our stuff for the wedding by hand...


First, I made the felt flower for Adam's boutonneire (or however you friggin' spell it lol), then I wrapped the peacock feather with floral tape, and glued the ribbons on. He wanted the fringes trimmed, so I obliged.

And then I made a plainer version for the other boys...

For the girls' hair clips, I ordered the plain clips online, and then added hydrangea flowers from the Dollar Store hydrangeas we picked up for the table arrangements.


And I took our favorite photos of each other and the critters and included them in our peacock fan photo display :)


And this what happens when I get distracted and the hot glue gun is still on.... :)
And of course, we enlisted Smudges help...
:)

This was a card box we picked up from someones wedding for $10 on Craigslist. I ended up adding more to it than just the one feather though.

Our wedding favors, peacock shaped lilac scented soaps. We ended up with a ton of these left over unfortunately, but I suppose it's better to have too many than not enough.

My toss garter

And the one for Adam to keep:
I had the lady send the garter without the ribbons and charms attached, and I added everything afterwards, so I could include the peacock feathers, and instead of the butterfly charm on Adams, I put our favorite band's pick, Three Days Grace. Their song "Lost In You" was also our first dance together.
