  1. Hi, Does anyone on here know how to be able to write into these PDF Files? I even tried downloading a new version of Adobe Reader..didn't work. I downloaded this really awesome template that I found online to use for several things..and although I can see it, I can't write in it. The website I got it from offers it for free on their website, and someone already used it and even blogged about it. So I know it is suppose to be "useable"...hmmmmm... Anyone???..... Here's the website where I found it, if you scroll down to the bottom you will see it Download Swash Ornament Invitations - in Blue, Gold, and Pink. http://www.nonpareilmag.com/downloads/swash-ornament-invitations/ Thanks in advance
  2. Hey Everyone!!!! So hubby and I have been happily married for 2 yrs now..YAY!! (i would've never accomplished anything without the help of this forum) It is now my time to finally pull thru for my girl..my best friend in the whole wide world. I'm in charge of the Bridal Shower & I need your help ladies!!! I have an idea of what I want for her shower..i'm hosting it at a local hall, and i'm thinking of having it Catered. I just don't know where to start. I'm in jersey & found these amazing caterers around my way.."PersonalTouchCaterers". I'm just thinking how much can they actually do for me, and what exactly will i be looking for them to do for me, besides the Food. Also, i'm hosting it on a Sunday - mid day maybe like from 1 to 4 pm. What kind of food do you guys think i should serve. I'm hosting this party all on my own, so $$$ is a concern but i really wanna host something nice, so i'm willing to dish out a pretty penny for my bff. And question, should i do a cake or are cupcakes the new thing now? The party will consist of 55 ppl..and the hall is pretty spacious. I'm trying to do as many things as i could on my own..so any DIY IDEAS you ladies care to share will be very much appreciated. I promise to POST PICS with all of your ideas after the shower! Thanku..thanku..thanku. We're on for April 17th, 2011!!! I gotta make miracles happen in less then 2 months...so please please help me you guys. Happy Planning to you all btw ))
  3. OMG.....you guys are LIFE SAVORS...lol. THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU!!!!!!! Well yes i hate that we have to book a hall. Unfortunetly, all bridesmaids including myself have small tiny places. so it looks like this has to be the way to go. But thank you guys so much!!! really.
  4. Ok..so there's a reason why I hate Math....I suck!..lol Anyway, I'm trying to book a hall for my BFF's Bridal Shower. I hate to have to limit her to a total of 25 people. But I don't think I could afford anymore. I did the math but I think I did it wrong. I'm the worst at this someone please help me. I would love to do 40 people but I think that would be too much. Hmmmmm.....Again, someone please help me figure this out. The Restaurant states on it's website the following along with the menu, Banquet Luch Package Served from 11 am to 3 pm Package Includes Home made bread, unlimited soft drinks, coffee and tea. $23.75 Per Person Please add 7% tax and 20% gratuity For 25 people....??? For 35 People..??? THANK YOU SO..SO..MUCH IN ADVANCE IF YOU CAN HELP ME!!!!!!

  7. OMG! seeing your pics reminds me how much fun I had in my weddng too. Your pics are truly stunning, and you looked AMAZING!!!! Elizabeth is so much fun
  8. Thanks Everyone!!!!! Your sweet comments mean so much. There's nothing more I love then to look at our pics and re-live that day, and to see all of our hard work finally pay off. We're also really happy we decided on a TTD session too, it was sooo... much fun..lol. Afterwards, we knocked out for 4 hours...lol Elizabeth: Thank you so much for everything! You've actually inspired me to look into Photography as my side thing. Our pictures tell a story, like no other, and that to us is priceless . JaimeLynne: Thank you! It's funny you mention that you guys were "too big of weenies" to go that far into the ocean like we did, cause yes we did go in far, but boy was it rocky! Plus, I totally envy your 'avatar pic'. We were suppose to take Sunrise TTD Pics, but we were like two irresponsible teenagers the night before hanging out with our bridal party in Playa Del Carmen. Which totally explains my tired eyes...lol. Mind you I had no make-up either, I guess it made for more natural pica anyway, right.. sspiris: Thanks, we got married at the El Dorado Royale Resort & Spa, in the Riviera Maya. It really is a Gorgeous Location! Ikupoo: Yes, it's me! Thank you so much for all of your help over the past year. Your less then 2 weeks away....HOW EXCITING, CONGRATULATIONS!!! Preciousmi811: Thank you very much for your kind words as well. I'm so flattered that you would consider my wedding an inspiration for yours. Wow, that's very sweet.... Best of luck with your wedding, and congrats! To those Lucky Couples awaiting their pics from E.M, Congrats to you! Your gonna love 'em Other photographers that I absolutely love and have had the chance to see their work are: Sol & Matt from Del Sol Photography, their work is One of a kind. I love Juan Carlos Tapia & Enrique Morales as well, phenomenal. I'm sure there's so many more that I might be forgetting, but so far every brides pics from this Forum have been absolutely beautiful, I know this. Best of luck to all and THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR COMMENTS...
  10. Woo-hoo!!!!! Loving the pics...can't wait to see more. It's nice to hear that things went great for you. Looking forward to reading your review congrats!!!
  11. Hey everyone! So we want to get a projector for our Back at Home Reception that's less then a month away now. We want to use it to share our Wedding Slideshow to everyone. But we've never used one before so how exactly does that work? Do we need the pics to be on a DVD? And what about just playing the pictures on a DVD Player and straight onto a LARGE TV SCREEN IF ANYTHING...would it still be the same or better perhaps?? Please share your thoughts... By the way, does anyone know of any websites that does this...you know like turn your pictures into a DVD?? THANKS GUYS..
  12. Hey girls. First off....I'm so sorry that this has happened. I can just imagine your frustration and confusion. Please stay strong and know that you can still make your dream wedding come true whether you decide to go through with it now or wait until another time. Your wedding is what you make of it anyway. Whether you have 50 guests or 5, trust me I know. We got married in Riviera Maya on April 5th and we got back on April 11th. And let me tell you that our worry at the time was the stupid Drug Wars. I had some guests cancel last min. too because of it. We were sad at first but then we were like, whatever! We ended up having only 9 guests join us. I was mad at first but honestly, it was for the better. At the end of it all, it really is just about you and your hubby-2-b. And in regards to the Swine Flu, well luckily we haven't expeirenced any symptoms up until this point. But we still feel like we should get checked out. I kind of feel like it's the fair thing to do for my family, friends, and co-workers. But I heard that going to the Dr. is not allowed unless you are expeirencing symptoms. Plus, only the CDC can test you to see if your positive or negative, not your average Dr. Has anyone heard more about this? We're concerned as hell right about now. I hate that this has happened too. Poor Mexico and it's people . And now I feel the same for so many other countries as our own... S^!t is crazy!!... We can only wait and stay positive. Stay strong guys..I know it sucks. Our Back at Home Reception was for this wknd coming up, but we've decided to postpone it for now too. We're gonna let things cool for now I guess. My thoughts go out to all you ladies. I'm so sorry to those who have had to cancel so much. I know I was a mess too before I left sending e-mails out to guests and just trying to re-assure them all of their safety. I wanted them to have fun and enjoy themselves. I never planned for certain things to happen, just like you guys so I know what your going through. Just know that it isn't your fault and that we picked Mexico for probably the same reasons. Even after all of this, I'm still happy that I chose Mexico for my wedding. I took home many beautiful memories of places and people that I met while out there and it's beauty and culture will continue to live in our hearts. We can only wish the best for Mexico and it's people. Hopefully a cure will be found soon. It's what I'm praying for. Our thoughts are with all of you wonderful couples out there. We wish you lots of luck and the most beautiful wedding. linda
  13. Thanks everyone for your kind words!!!! It feels so nice to see everything come together at the end. And to see all of your hard work pay-off. Again, if it wasn't for all of the sweet ideas and amazing talents of all you beautiful people on here, I would have lost my mind months ago..hahaha!!! Sorry I don't have pics of my OOT BAG items. but, I'll list them.. *Our Welcome Book (Got the idea from someone on here, can't remember who . She was so sweet to e-mail her templates to me too. I just personalized them with our wording. *Sunscreen & Chapstick w/spf *2 Postcards from Mexico *1 Waterproof camera *and a first-aid kit from CVS Guests really appreciated the waterproof camera

  15. Bouquet Jewelry...they added such a nice touch: I got my bouquet jewelry from - Swarovski Crystal Bouquet Jewelry - Bouquet Jewelry - Bouquet Jewels Bridal Panty From:Blushing Bride Silk Panties And Finally...... Boudoir Gift Books for DH I did Pro and Non-Pro Pics. The little pocket-sized book was done through a professional photographer at her studio in NJ. Although this album is only sized at 5x5, the quality is wonderful and it's a Perfect Size for him I thought. The bigger album was a gift from my sister to me. She is an aspiring photographer from Virginia who is developing her portfolio, and so she offered to do a Boudoir Shoot for me at "our" house for free. Both books turned out so ***HOT*** that I decided to give him both. I highly recommend all Brides-2-B out there to consider doing a Boudoir Shoot. Just think of it as a gift for both of you. I really did this for him, as I wanted to surprise him with something totally unique, but I also did it for me as well. Preserving pictures of myself of when I was young and beautiful is a real treat in itself for me too I think. Years from now...I wanna be like WOW!...that was me....haha!!! Seriously...it's such a self-esteem booster Oh and I did a personalized card to go along with the gifts. That's one of our kitties Cali, on the front of the card you see here. We love our kitties so much...I thought I'd get creative with it. - MyPublisher | Create your own Photo Book with MyPublisher and receive a published hardcover book! Pro Pics by Stephanie Sherwood, she is wonderful -NJ Wedding Photographer,Senior Portraits, Creative Graduate Portraits,Baby & Infant photography, Sherwood Photography, NJ, NY, New Jersey Wedding Photographer, New York Wedding Photographer, Photojournalistic Wedding Photographer. Candid Wedding Phot(tell her linda sent you..thanks ) Well that's it really. I think there's so much I might be forgetting still, but this is all I can remember right now. I can't wait to see how our wedding slideshow will tie everything together. Stay Tuned....
