  1. I apologize for my delayed response! Assuming you are asking about the metallic paper from Cards & Pockets...yes, i selected the "text weight" type of paper and recall it listing laser printing as one of the uses. Also, on their website, there is an option to purchase a sample sheet for $1.10 with free shipping so you can try it out before purchasing a whole pack. Sorry about that! Trying again...hope it works! I've included two files...the boarding pass insert and the jacket cover. Boarding Pass.docx Jacket.docx
  2. I decided to go with real touch flowers since I want to keep my bouquet. I purchased my bouquet, bridesmaids' bouquet, a flower wand and corsages from Wedideas. They were great to work with and all items were shipped well within the timeframe promised. Here are a couple of pics of my bouquet...
  3. My friend just did this to me! She recently broke up with her boyfriend and asked if she could bring one of our friends instead. I said of course she could! But when she forwarded me her booking confirmation it also had her mom and aunt on it! I was a little thrown off that she didn't at least mention them when she asked about bringing our other friend. I contacted her right after and confirmed they are coming along for the trip and not expecting to attend the wedding. I'm ok with that!
  4. Welcome to the ladies that have joined since my last check-in! I can't believe how fast time is flying, my planning slowed during the holidays, but I'm now back in full wedding planning mode! LOL! My group is up to 47 people with more saying they are going to book! We invited 115 and planned on 50 attending, so we are almost there! Some of the major items I'm working on... 1) Getting fit for alterations! Focusing on eating better and getting in my daily workout, and to my surprise, I'm enjoying it! 2) Pre-cruise packets! I will be mailing luggage tags (search "ucfjennifer luggage tag" for my DIY thread) and a brochure with travel/cruise info (created on Vistaprint) to each guest next week. 3) Groom's attire! My FH has changed his mind on what he wants to wear. I'm slightly annoyed as I thought this was already decided. We discussed a few other options that we both like, and I'm leaving the final decision up to him. 4) Bridal party attire! We have finally nailed down the bridal party (we were waiting for 2 people to decide if they were coming), so it's time to finalize their attire. Guys will have to wait until FH makes his decision. 5) Welcome bags! I started purchasing items for our welcome bags. This part is so much fun! Well, that's it for now! What are the rest of you working on?
  5. I'm getting ready to send out my pre-cruise packets! Each guest will receive one of these luggage tags and a brochure with important travel info and tips for cruising on Carnival. We created the brochures on Vistaprint, just waiting for them to arrive!
  6. I just wanted to stop by and say best wishes to all of the November brides. Enjoy your special day!
  7. Hi CAKnight! Long time, no talk! Did you switch ships? I'm a Victory bride too! Getting married in Cozumel though.
  8. There are so many fun ideas on this board and I really appreciate all of the brides before me that have posted their DIY threads! I have received so many great ideas and motivation to attempt a few of my own. I never considered myself a very creative person, but this has been a really fun experience. I decided on a boarding pass invite that incorporated the cover to provide additional information. In the end, these cost me a little over $1 each (excluding postage). Materials: 1) 8.5" x 11" white cardstock (Michael's) 2) 8.5" x 11" silver metallic cardstock (Cards & Pockets) 3) Metallic mailing envelopes (Cards & Pockets) 4) Metallic RSVP envelopes (Cards & Pockets) Instructions: 1) This is my boarding pass insert. I provided the basic ceremony information and added our wedding website. The template will print 3 inserts on each sheet of white cardstock. I printed the back side first and then the front. 2) This is my RSVP card. This template will also print 3 inserts on each sheet of white cardstock. 3) This is one side of the silver metallic cover that will later be folded. I printed this side first. Our passport save the dates said "passport to paradise" so the "ticket to paradise" was a great continuation of the theme. 4) And here is the other side that has our cruise itinerary and booking information. The ink on the front side will smudge if you print right away, so I suggest waiting a bit before printing this side of the cover. 5) After waiting for the ink to dry, I folded the bottom of the sheet a little less than a third of the way up. I secured the upper right corner with a glue dot. Then I cut a diagonal line from the bottom left corner. Insert the boarding pass and RSVP card with envelope, then fold the top portion down. I will post my templates in a few!!
  9. 6 months from today for me! Updates since my last post...boarding pass invites are complete and going in the mail on Monday and our booked guest total is up to 35! I think the next few months will be light on the planning and pick back up after the holidays.
  10. I just wanted to stop by and say hi and best wishes to all of the October brides! Enjoy your special day!
  11. Forgot to add...we don't know the exact date/location yet, so on the RSVP card under the "unable to attend" option we added a note stating that they can still help us celebrate at our bon voyage party and that invites will be sent in February.
  12. We've decided to have ours before so there is nothing left to plan/do after the wedding. It will be a few weeks before we leave and we are calling it a Bon Voyage party. Invites will go out to those who are unable to go on our wedding cruise.
  13. Thanks, ladies! I've decided that I'm also going to use these as name tags for my Welcome Bags!
  14. I feel the same way! It's going to be here before we know it! As for my dress fittings, I'm also getting started on a workout schedule. I'm super short so my dress will definitely need to be hemmed, I'm just hoping to need some work done in the middle section too! Haha!
  15. Hi TuffLuv & Tantan!! It's great to see more April brides! We are at the 7 month mark! My dress came in already...2 months early! I'm working on the invitations and plan to send them by the end of Oct. My niece (age 9) is very excited to be my junior bridesmaid instead of a flower girl. My younger nephews (ages 2/3) are my Ring Security. My older nephews (ages 8/10) are very shy and I knew they wouldn't do anything on their own, so they will be Ring Security as well, escorting the little guys down. They were very excited about this idea! My sisters will be my bridesmaids and his brother/cousin are groomsmen. We are thinking of adding a third to each side, but both are unsure if they can make the trip at this point. As of today, we have a total of 35 people booked for the cruise! What is everyone else working on?
  16. This is what we are doing. Our wedding is April 2014 and we sent the Save the Date 12 months in advance and out invitations will go out in late Oct (at 6 months) as we want to get them out before the holidays.
  17. Thanks all! I've decided to send everyone an invitation. Slightly different version for people that have booked (final payment reminder vs the contact information to book). I have them designed, now just have to start printing! Plan to send them out in late October.
