Bride & groom favours

With summer fast approaching (we've actually had some record high temperatures here, hitting 33°C) the wedding season is upon us. The youngest daughter of close friends of ours is getting married this summer so I have been playing with various ideas in my head.
I came up with these cute little bride & groom favours. They would be great for shower gifts, or even place markers. I however will be using them as a gift topper. We have 2 gifts that will be stacked like a cake and this adorable little couple will be on the top.

As you may have guessed, these were made with the curvy keepsake die.
I added a little ribbon (5 strips, knotted at the top, attached to the back of the head, side by side) to create the veil and added a ribbon the bow, but you could easily skip the bow (or use a paper bow) and use a doily for the veil. I also added some pearls to the head piece and the dress, but rhinestones would work really well too.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Bazzill and Recollections
Ink: Blushing Bride, Pumpkin Pie, Cherry Cobbler - SU
Die: Curvy Keepsake - SU
Punches: see instruction sheets posted below
Embossing folder: Delicate Designs - SU
Misc.: 5/8" white organza ribbon, white gel pen, black marker, rose/red chalk, pearls

The basic instructions on how to make the little 3-d rose my bride is holding can be found here I just substituted the petite petals SU flower punch .
