About GarlicBride

  1. The minute I heard this on the radio my heart went out to all Mexico brides; this is so sad. Have a drink and try to limit your media immersion - it's all sensationalist crap - remember that "calm down, it's all okay" doesn't sell advertising whereas "run for your lives!" does! warm thoughts Hannah
  2. I think you need to go right back and consider why you decided to have an AHR in the first place. Is it for family reasons (the grandparents feature in your earlier post), people who couldn't be there for the real thing (close family of good friend of groom), celebrating with colleagues (fella's platoon) or something entirely different? If it's all of the above which is the most important? Look at those reasons and decide which of the options you have is most true to those aims and go with that. It is the one you'll be able to live with afterwards and you'll be able to honestly tell people why you made the decisions you made. Whatever you choose to do in the end will be the right decision.

    ooh something a bit different! Welcome to BDW!
  5. Hi, I begin with an apology, it's taken me about two months to get these posted on here, sorry!! Here are the photos, sorry if they are too big, I don't know how to re-size: I made a few changes from the general templates which are circulating: 1. I made a more formal "wallet" style holder for the tickets and used it to include directions and maps 2. I held all the passes together with "brads" 3. We included a "baggage tag" asking for song requests 4. Also included was a "frequent flyer card" which had details of our registry 5. I looked very carefully at lots of actual boarding passes so the layout and text use was similar; mine are based on Air Canada as they have English/French dual language. I saved a bit of cash by: 1. making them with a team of brilliant crafting friends! 2. Used white card stock and printed the brown colour on instead of buying brown stock; the price of a4 colour printing is the same if you have every bit covered in ink or just lettering. 3. Printed some of it at work!! I wish I'd known before I started: consider your envelope size FIRST!! We had to make ours as they are an odd size which was an extra pain and added nothing to the overall effect. We've had great feedback and I just want to do an oscar style thankyou to this forum and the people who've posted so helpfully on this matter previously; you are all great! It was the absolutely perfect dual language, destination wedding invite and although it was a lot of work it has been very much worth it. The file is attached, in publisher format, I hope someone finds it of use. take care Hannah x wedding invite 1.pub wedding invite 2.pub

  7. I don't think there are any "rules" but most people seem to use the forename initial of the bride and groom. There's a great thread about how to make your own monogram here: http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t8310 welcome to the forum!! Hannah
  8. looks fantastic and you got it all for an amazing price!! Well done!!
  9. Greeting ladies, I've found some bargain shoes on ebay to wear for my wedding day but it says they have a couple of marks on them - how easy would it be to get these out? Here they are: Rainbow Club Ivory Satin Wedding Shoes Dee - Size 7 on eBay, also Shoes, Bridal Accessories, Wedding Clothing, Clothes, Shoes Accessories (end time 23-Feb-09 19:26:36 GMT) I don't want to get bargain shoes then have to pay loads for professional cleaning! thanks in advance for you wisdom!
