My Best Friend's Wedding: Preparing for the Bachelorette Party

So my bestie's bachelorette was last weekend and as MOH I had full charge of planning the whole event.  I found a sash that I loved in a local boutique but I couldn't get the color combination I wanted.  SO I got crafty :o)  I bought a "Bride to be Sash" from a local party store and used a feather boa and some ribbon from Michaels to recreate the look.  I knew Katie would be wearing a navy dress with pink shoes so I chose ribbon that would look great with her outfit.  I used fashion tape to attach some gold glittery ribbon to the back of the sash and left the ends free to tie together with the boa and some hot pink ribbon.  I'm sure R doesn't appreciate me posting this photo but he was sweet enough to wear it for me so I could tie the accents onto the sash.
 Here is a close-up of the bottom of the sash.  I used two peices of thin light pink boa and tied them in a knot.  In the opposite direction I tied some glittery dark pink ribbon that I hoped would match her shoes.
 Another view of the sash.

I'll go over the rest of the bachelorette weekend in another post but for now I'll leave you with this hint as to where we went....
It's more information than the bride had.  We totally kidnapped her and surprised her the whole weekend.  I'm not sure how 6 women managed not to spill the beans but we kept the location and plans a secret for the past several months.
