I want to give our parents and grandparents something to show our appreciation on our wedding day.
I want the gifts to be something last forever, so decided to make ribbon leis instead of real flower leis.
I took ribbon lei making class two weeks ago and started making them.
Is it as good as real flower?
What do you think?
I like the ones on the left out of the 4. Dont mean to offend but the ones on the right look like bicycle chain lock thingys....they're ok though. Not really something I would go for personally, thats just me! but A) I may be wrong and they may turn out to be a hit and b) you did ask =D
Did you pick the colors that you are using for a reason? Maybe make them to match your wedding colors or to match the outfit they are wearing or maybe just a basic color like black? The "weaving" looks great...maybe you could add a little bling or something instead of ivory colored "flowers". Just a few suggestions. Good luck! :)
Thank you for your advise guys!
These designs are typical Hawaiian ribbon lei.
We live in Hawaii and guests are coming from mainland and Japan.
We picked these colors to match the guests' outfits for the guests we know what they are wearing, for others, we picked their image color.
We wanted to do so instead of making them to match out wedding theme color since Hawaii is rainbow state!!
Flowers and Kukui nuts used in leis are also typical Hawaiian flowers and plants so I want to keep them but maybe I can add some bling :) I LOVE BLING!! lol
