Bridal Party Gifts

The bridal party gifts were really important to me... so I have been planning them for MONTHS!
I wanted them to all have similarities, but still reflect each of them :)

So here is what I ended up with for the bridesmaids:
On the inside of each of their custom "boxes" I had a silk robe, a silk nightie, a Juicy Charm bracelet, pearl necklace and earrings for the wedding, a cosmetic bag with their initial on it, and a card.
Each girl had a different looking box. I bought these boxes as I found them, and spent loads of time looking! I do not have all 7 of them pictured, but they all had the same stuff inside!

I don't know if you can see... but the ribbon has the word "bridesmaid" written on it!
TL did something very unique for each of his groomsmen. He had a really hard time finding something unique that he loved... so when he saw these custom made "bobble heads" he had to do it. For this to work, we had to get pictures of all of the groomsmen, a front picture, and side profile picture. They all look DEAD ON like the guys... its crazy!
Our little Ring Bearer Jack is probably one of the most adorable 3 year olds I have ever seen... and he is absolutely in LOVE with the movie "Cars" and everything about cars for that matter. So, I did an entire Cars theme for him from a bunch of goodies from the Disney Store.
And for the flower girls, Hailey & Hannah, I wanted to do something girlie, and something that included their very favorite "Hannah Montana"! I also wanted something as a keepsake, so we got pearl bracelets with their names engraved on them... thats in the little silver box. I also bought them their tutu's, hair pieces, and shoes :)
For my special attendants & reader (Michelle & Tare) I got them special little gifts from Tiffany's.


This is what they look like all wrapped up! :) I also included a card for each girl.
And then for our amazing Ushers - Greyson, Matt, Trevor, and Kash, I did a fun beer mug with their names engraved and then stuffed and wrapped to look pretty! Men are so hard to get gifts for, but I figured this would be fun and unique with their names on it!
We are doing some special gifts for our parents... but those involve plans for after the honeymoon!
We feel so lucky to have had so many amazing people involved in our wedding. They all mean so much to us!!

DÉCOR TIPS & QUIPS from AlphabetPIX.com

Bringing Out Your Inner BOLD!

Bill Blass said, “Style is primarily a matter of instinct.” Decorating takes on a new meaning for each individual. Clever and chic for Janie may be yesterday’s yawn-fest for Carol. Different tastes in dècor mean different furniture, artwork and color palettes. So what is the rule of thumb for making your place zing if it’s not a certain style, pattern, or color?

Bold, baby! Bring out the Y-O-U!

Boldly say what you want to say when designing a room. Make a statement and let your personality shine through. If you go in for the palest blues to soothe and relax, add a custom zing to make it pop! Love black and white photography? Maybe even some of that ultra-hot photo alphabet wall art in black and white? Splash in some passionate pink or revved up red on the wall to make it sizzle.

No longer are walls content with neutral shades. Any color of the palette goes! Splash on muted melons or eccentric eggplants with savvy sage. Classic colors cozy up with velvety crimsons and Dijon yellows. Color is fantastically bold and beautiful! Rich textured throws, swags, rugs and runners jazz up every room, every time.

Patterns are all the rage now, too. Twists and twirls, paisleys and pearls! Did you ever in a million years think of dotting stripes and striping dots? Designers these days are pulling out all the geometrical stops. Paisley mixes with all sorts of combinations-checks, polkas, and weathered solids. Discover a new way of looking at the world around you in different shapes and designs.

Mix it all with gorgeous gilding in silver and gold. Toss in a few well-chosen accents-bold and beautiful. And with the trend of decor becoming more and more personalized, a meaningful piece of photography will make you feel right at home. Black and white as well as the historic look of sepia photography looks gorgeous in any room. Add all these ingredients together, and you’ve got yourself a decorating design that not only expresses your individual style but does so as personally and beautifully as you want it to.

Whatever you want to say while decorating, say it with your own personal sense of style. Put it out there for the world to see and don’t look back! Embrace your individuality whether your nature is “Janie jazzed” or “Carol calm”. Express yourself! When people enter your home they’ll shoot you a complementary smile, knowing it looks and feels sooooo perfectly like you. And no one can do YOU better.
