If I can't show off my own dress yet, at least I can show off this pretty one!

Our flower girl, my friend Patty's daughter Sophia, will look adorable.  Here she is below, "helping" us cut tulle.

I love baby's breath.  Only by itself, of course.  I agree with anyone who thinks it's tacky as a filler flower.  Alone, it's gorgeous, ethereal, simple.  But also, cheap.  So when I called a florist to get quotes for baby's breath and daisies, I did not expect to hear it would be more than $500.  This has led me to scour the internet for videos teaching me how to make my own bouquets and boutonnieres...and here is my first attempt!
Thoughts?  I welcome any comments and criticisms...I want to get this right!
Isn't this alternative to a ring pillow beautiful?
I'm not sure if we'll have a ring bearer, never mind the need for something fancy to carry our rings on.  But if we did this would be a strong contender.  The combination of natural elements and pretty textiles does it for me.  Doesn't get much more earthy-crunchy than this!
I've said it before and I'll say it again.  I adore Etsy.  I've spent hours browsing the many shops, but actually made my very first purchase(s) yesterday!  I fell in love with this stamp months ago:

As I type, it's being made with our names across the top and our date across the bottom.  I also ordered another one-of-a-kind, tiny, fantastic fish stamp for other stationary purposes...
thank you, nellielovesart
Can't wait until they arrive and I can try them out!
I have completely fallen in love with this clutch.  I stumbled across it while doing my regular check on Emmaline Bride, and am seriously considering investing in this for myself.  Yay for Etsy!  [Cadybriar]
