About AtoZ

  1. I'm getting married at Ocean Coral & Turquesa on April 11 and our Vancouver guests paid just over $1500 -- plus we're able to use AirMiles points because we used Marlin Travel (who, in turn, use Air Transat.)
  2. Here's that promised post on my pre-mailer laminated luggage tags. (The inspiration can be found here.) Once again, excuse the iPhone photos and the shine off the laminated tags. Items needed to make them: Scrapbook paper from Michaels. I bought a 'vintage collector' mixed pad that featured maps, chevrons and the like. They feature a different pattern in the same colour on the back. Mix vacation scrapbook stickers from Michaels. (Item #673807978911) Ribbons (you could substitute for cord, twine, etc.) White card stock for the personalized tags (not pictured). Download the templ
  3. I just realized that the images posted as attachments, so many of you may not be able to see them. Here they are: Alternative guest book/advice cards Bridal party earring and hairpins Kids' activity books Luggage tags (not completed in photos)
  4. Would you mind passing on the menu information? I've been waiting to hear back from Ana about the food -- so far we've just been discussing some gluten-free/veggie options.
  5. I managed to bang out a few of my DIY projects today and thought I would share the results. Excuse the poor iPhone photos. ALTERNATIVE GUEST BOOK Like my save-the-dates and wedding invites, I turned to a free printable to make our alternative wedding guest book -- wedding advice cards. This project came courtesy of Marry This! The colour combinations don`t match the rest of our DIY items or wedding theme, but we plan on framing some of our favourites and hanging them in our upstairs hallway -- where it will match the current artwork. Items needed to make them: White
  6. BHLDN and Nicole Miller have some great bohemian-style dresses. Ivy & Aster might be another one worth checking out.
  7. Another user (GatorGirl1) posted her template to a similar Passport invitation about a year or so ago. Here`s her post with the downloadable template.
  8. Thanks for the lovely feedback, everyone! I'm starting our next DIY projects today: bridesmaid hairpins, necklaces and earrings; Luggage tags and packing lists for pre-travel mail-out; Alternative advice guest book/cards; Escort cards; OOT bag stickers and packaging; and Welcome booklet for OOT bags That just leaves the menu and the programs, which I can't start until I hear back from the resort about some things. Let's hope I don't get the urge to do anything else. There's only three more months to get it all done!
  9. Our invitations were sent out in the summer and as of this week, everyone has booked and paid in full, which means I can now relax (somewhat). Like our save-the-dates, we used a free printable suite from the Wedding Chicks and then Photoshopped and crafted some extra add-ons to personalize it a bit more. And, because the invitation is part of a suite, we plan on also using it for our menus, thank you cards and possibly our escort cards. We'll also be purchasing their matching totes for our OOT bags because, well, theme. What I needed to make the invites, RSVP cards, luggage tags a
  10. It took me no time at all to line them once I had a template (which also only took a minutes). I was averaging 10 in about 4 minutes and received a lot of compliments -- people thought I bought them lined. The only annoying part was printing the paper. That took a long time but I was able to do other things while the printer chugged along.
  11. I plan on getting the same ones. They had a similar pair last spring that ended up dropping to $80 in the winter. Chinese Laundry and Steve Madden have similar styles for much less.
  12. Forgot to mention: We're also purchasing Wedding Chicks welcome tote bags. They have three different chevron patterns, which tie into our invitations, but we're going with this Bienvenidos option in Tiffany or aqua blue. The bags come in groups of 20 for $125 -- but are often on sale for $100 for the lot. They ship to Canada for a low cost, fellow Canucks!
