What’s better than a mini bottle of champagne? A mini bottle of champagne covered in pink and gold glitter! At Foxblossom Co., we specialize in helping brides propose and thank their bridesmaids for standing by their side. We’ve had a great response to our personalized, gold script champagne flutes, that we decided to create a DIY project to help brides *pop* the question to their maids! This is one of the easiest DIY projects we’ve ever done, and it makes for a memorable, fun bridesmaid proposal. Happy crafting!

To help you ask in fun and creative ways, FTD put together six “Will you be my bridesmaid?” printables for all kinds of ladies.
Today’s guest post comes from Diana, one of our readers who helped her sister pull off DIY tour de force, on time and on budget! Here’s how she did it:
My boyfriend’s sister was trying to do a backyard wedding with a budget of $15,000 and was trying to figure out a way to decorate the tent for cheap. I volunteered to do it because the wedding was months away and it seemed like a nice thing to do (I’m not sure how I felt the day before the wedding but that’s another story). She said she wanted something like this picture.

Our DIY Table Numbers were the perfect kind of wedding project – simple & easy to make, yet personal and unique. I loved the idea of giving our guests a few random tidbits of information about the hubs & I as a couple, especially considering some of our guests were meeting one of us for the first time!
Whether it’s due to the recession or a side effect of sites like Pinterest, weddings have become more personalised and unique than they have been in years. Wedding planners be wary – brides and grooms everywhere are taking their wedding plans into their own hands and creating a day that truly reflects their relationship and their love.
If you’re looking for ways to personalise your wedding, or simply one aspect of it, here are some easy ways to do just that.
I know, I know, you already know that, and being reminded of the horror of it isn’t necessary. So, here’s the deal. Unless you’re lucky enough to have parents who are footing the bill or have been madly setting aside funds since you were a wee little one, you’re probably looking to save money where you can.
One of the places where it’s possible to pinch pennies and stretch dimes is with the flowers. Perhaps not the bouquet—though some people will argue that the bouquet is the easiest thing, but I don’t agree, I’m not THAT crafty—but centerpieces and decorative flowers are easier to manage then you might think, and DIY-ing it can potentially save you a fair chunk of change. It still won’t be cheap, but it’ll help take a bit off of your budget. Remember, you’ll have to put in some elbow grease, which means you’ll have to have some time a day or two before the wedding to actually get a group together to make the arrangements.
