My shower is right around the corner. I still can't figur out a favor to hand out that day. the theme is Polynesian/hula.
My mom got skids of Martini glasses from a friend, and she wants me to make use of it... which I don;t mind but what can i create.

I want to stick with the theme some what.

Any suggestions?

Okay so I posted a picture of my wedding gown below. Now I think i'm thinking twice. I now think the dress doesn't suit me... it makes me look stacked... I HATE THIS... and I can't figure out a hair style for my hair which will look perfect with everything...

I'm starting to stress over this.

So we've decided on our MC for the reception night. We choose my cousin/sister from Detroit.
There was no hesitation in asking her, She is like an older sister to me and has been there for me every step of the way.

she will be doing marjotiry of the Mc introducing the bridal party as they come in, the bride & groom ect.

We did think of having the bridal party do the MC like each pair at a time, but we don't think that will work out, We will ask them how they feel the day we have our meeting,

I know she will do a great job, she is a good speaker.

XOXOXO

So I've started doing some decor for the candy buffet table.. I bought Styro Foam letters from Michaels for 1.50 each (LOVE IS SWEET) Bought some spray paint and painted it, going to stick them on wood spools into a piece of wood.

Also i bought a Foam ball went to the dollar store and bought some flower the color of the wedding and stuffed them all on the foam. It will sit somewhere on the table also.

I also bought White wood letters for the cake table saying I DO, I wont paint them I will just leave them white.

Once again my sister in law and I tried to make the Picture Frame money box... At first we thought it was hard but it turned out to be a pretty easy project.

All the supplies we had to use was:
1 power screw driver
4 8x10 picture frames
2 packages of Corner Braces (1"/25mm) 4pcs per pkg
1 box of 6x1/2 Flat Socket Head for Wood/Metal Screw 33pcs in pkg.
1 meter of Lace green fabric for the top. Instead of white cloth we will put something more decorative for the top.
1 Foam board, the thck ones. cut it I had spray paint left over from one of the other projects so we spray painted it yellow and them stapled the lace on it

The project wasn't hard at all and it looks great...

* AT THE RECEPTION I WILL PLACE THIS BOX ON A LAZY SUSAN, SO THAT GUEST CAN TURN IT TO SEE ALL THE PICTURES.

So like I said in my other post I was not fond of the water in the bowls. So my sister in law did some shopping around, she went to our local dollar store and came across the "Crystal Pearl Gel" It comes in small palm size packs of very tiny beads almost looks like beads for jewlery and all you have to do is soak them in water for a couple of hours and they will expand to tiny marbel size gel balls. If you choose to have color then just throw some food coloring in them while soaking and the color with soak in as well.
In the pictures we put the clear white gel balls at the bottom and then the green on top. And then the green flower in the middle and small white flower candles around.

Hope you guys like it I know it doesn't make a difference in the pics but when you see it up close it looks way better.

*THESE LOOK VERY SHINY LIKE CRYSTALS, AND THE BEST PART IS THAT THE CANDLES AND FLOWER STAY IN ONE SPOT THEY DON'T GATHER IN A CORNER.
