With 74 days left until I get to say "I Do," I was very glad to get a package in the mail from my future mother in law.
South County Boy's mom did me a wonderful favor... Besides embroidering each girl's name onto the tote bags in the wedding colors... she also made handmade lace bookmarks for all the girls in the bridal party (my friends are pretty big readers, so this was a nice way to personalize the bags with something special they will get to use after the wedding besides taking the bags to the beach.)
When I went out to Utah to move my fiance "home" we left the bags with my fiance's mom and she was going to try and get them embroidered... and then she offered to also make the bookmarks in the same blue as the wedding... I didn't think i'd get to see them until they came out here for the wedding, but here's what the final product looks like:
So far, inside each of the bags I'm going to put the necklace and earrings set I got everyone to wear the day of the wedding. (Any other ideas if we have extra money in the budget?)
