Letters to the Bride. Have the mother of the bride, mother in law, bridesmaids, and friends of the bride write letters to the bride, then put them in a book so she can read them while getting ready the day of. The last page can be a letter from the groom.
The site is ridden with advertisement, but it's worth visiting for the photographed tutorial on how to make this wave pattern macramé bracelet. The pattern calls for 5 cords that are 65cm each. Nothing about the bead size but an 8 or 6 aught would work just fine. One can use other types of beads too. They just have to work with each other in order to create a smooth curve.
