After we asked everyone to be in the wedding party, they all graciously offered to buy their own attire. After a lot of deliberation, the girls pretty much settled on the same dress (my maid of honor chose to wear a different style). Because I didn't want everything to be too matching, I asked the girls to pick out their own shoes, accessories, and do whatever they pleased with their hair and makeup. I mean... come on... I'm already asking them to wear a dress that they may not like... it's pretty rude to dictate that they feel even more uncomfortable. Truth be told, I LOVE the way it turned out.

If you're looking to make your own LEGO tie clip, the steps are as simple as can be. I ordered 6x1 LEGO pieces from the LEGO website and blank tie clips off of Etsy. Use your hot glue gun and in seconds you have LEGO tie clips. Pretty snazzy, right?
