It is true that having your dream wedding or engagement is an important aspects. This is the time where you choose what ever you want. Realize your dream. But, it is also important to work within your budget.
So, I've been thinking of DIY-ing my doorgift.
I've decided that it must be something edible. Since I've some experience in baking, I guess making the cookies might not be that hard. But the real problem lies with the decorations. How to make it cute?
Actually I kinda imagine it should be in a box like this;

touch it up with some ribbons and tags,
then voila ! you're done.
The thing is, thou its not too much... these boxes will still be costly. The same thing goes to other cute boxes. Luckily, I've done some blog-walking and I stumble upon another better idea for it.

rather that put it in the boxes, put it in the plastics.
You'll save more this way.
And it still had those cute looks.
Great, isn't it? Plus, it is not a must that it should be cookies. It can be marshmallows, candies, or even non-edible things like candles. All you had to do is tie up some ribbons and cute tags. Or you can decorate it with another war either. Up to your own creativity. If you're lazy enough, just make some order. They do have the service for it thou. :)
p/s: still wondering whether I should get back to hometown this weekend. Mama already called because she needs me to make some decision regarding the bedroom's decoration. Oh no, she's making me excited all over for this engagement.
