    TTD Dress

    I'm curious-- where did you purchase the dress??
  3. You could tie in the pink with the corsage!
  4. aaronlori - I've booked Julia as well! I love her style, she's so talented! Thank goodness she happens to be in Punta Cana the day of our wedding--and free! When is your wedding & what hotel are you getting married at?
  5. Thanks everyone! I appreciate your comments They were so fun to make. I will be sure to post everything else I create--I can't wait to see what you guys come up with!
  6. katy21500 - I'm short too and I always pictured myself wearing heels at my wedding. But in reality, this is the one day & night that I do not want my feet to hurt. I ended up finding these absolutely beautiful Valentino sandals on ebay (pictured below)! They are soo comfortable but still elegant and even though they don't add height, that jewel will look stunning peeping out from under my dress. So maybe you want to consider something like that? You'll be glad that you chose a flat when you can still dance and party pain-free until all hours of the night!
  7. Hi everyone! I just finished my STDs for our wedding at Paradisus Punta Cana, I thought you might like to see them! Now that this step is done, it feels so real! Can't wait to share this exciting experience with all of you! I have included the prices of all of the supplies so you can get an idea of how cost effective it is to DIY! I used off-white card stock paper for the boarding pass, and handmade paper with pressed hearts in it for the pocket (both of which I picked up at DeSerres: http://www.deserres.ca/en-ca/). Card stock paper: $34.95 [100pk] I was able to create 3 out of each piece of paper. Each boarding pass: $0.12 Handmade paper: $2.95 [1pc] I was able to create 6 pockets out of each piece of paper. Each pocket: $0.49 For the envelopes, I used metallic silver (DeSerres) and a gorgeous ivory for the RSVP from Essence du Papier (http://www.essencedupapier.com/). Metallic silver envelope: $28.95 [50pk] Each envelope: $0.60 Ivory RSVP envelope: $0.75 each We ordered the custom stamps from Canada Post (http://www.canadapost.ca/cpo/mc/personal/productsservices/picturepostage/default_en.html) with our picture on it. I'm sorry, I don't know the price for these as my (soon to be) mother in law purchased them for us! We included a small STD magnet as well, that we ordered from Vistaprint (http://www.vistaprint.ca) for FREE! Our wonderful travel agent couriered her business cards to us so that we were able to include them in the STDs. This was so helpful as I didn't have to waste space putting all of her contact information on the boarding passes. And finally, I found silver seals to put on the back of the envelopes from DeSerres. Silver seal: $4.49 [50pk] Each: $0.10 So in total, each boarding pass cost me: $2.06! Note: I also purchased a perforator from DeSerres for $8.79 so that I could make them look even more authentic. By perforating it, our guests can fill out the RSVP section on the back of the boarding passes, tear them off, and send them back to us! I used a template for the boarding passes and pockets that you can download for free at http://www.ayleebits.com/ I hope you guys like them! They were so much fun to make!! xx FRONT: BACK:
