Bubbles

I posted here that we decided we would be using bubbles as our grand exit! If you can get a lot of people all blowing bubbles when you exit, the photos captured are dramatic, as can be seen here:
The beautiful Jessica Lynn at Tying the Knot

My mom and I have been purchasing tubes of bubbles from Michaels. The bubbles are $7.99 for 50 tubes. We have been using the weekly 40% off coupons (which can be found here or in the Sunday newspaper) to purchase the bubbles for $4.80 for 50 tubes which is a great deal if you have the time and patience to only purchase one container of bubbles each visit. We have also been using 40% off coupons to purchase our frames for the table numbers (discussed here).
Bubble from Michaels

We will be tying champagne and taupe colored ribbon to the top of each tube of bubbles! I am going to find a basket or two to put these babies in for handout after the wedding. I just love the more modernistic look of these bubbles versus the other containers of bubbles that I had seen in the past.

I hope that we can capture some pictures as beautiful as the ones that Jessica has from her wedding. I also hope that my photographer, Angela, can capture pictures of a certain niece and nephew having fun with the bubbles because I am sure that the bubbles will be a BIG hit with them!

Have a great weekend and enjoy the GORGEOUS weather!

We did that too! And I used those same "knot" design ones because they were much more tasteful than some of the other bubbles you see around with weird things on top. I'm sure it will be a fabulous exit! ;-)

yay! you will love the outcome! and this option is SO much easier than something like ribbon wands and it doesnt have the mess of rose petals! :)

My mom and I have been doing the same thing with the Michaels coupons for the same bubbles. We looked at Walmart and they were 2x as expensive so Michaels is the way to go. We are using a moss and hot pink ribbon though. Love it!

We're considering doing bubbles also, and I really like your bubble wands more than the little jars!

Hey there! Thanks for the sweet comment you left on my blog about my OOT gift boxes. I went back to see if I could find the company that I ordered them from. Here you go: http://www.retailpackaging.com/

All the best to you as you continue to plan your special day!
