I feel so disconnected. Usually I at least log into BDW a couple times a day but haven't since Friday.

 

I have been working on my invitations and nothing seems to be going right. I decided to do the boarding pass (Thanks Katrina for your help) and went to office max to have them printed on card stock on Friday. The woman popped the disk in and said "I think there is something wrong with your disk". She couldn't find my file on the disk. I jumped in my car, went home and resaved it and then went back. She got the file open but where my pretty palm and hibiscus were only had letters. I guess because they were downloaded fonts and their pc didn't have them, they come up as the letters. So I happened to have a copy of my passes so she offered to copy them to see how it looked. It looked okay (not as good as if it was printed from the disk but do able).

 

This morning, I went to a closer store to print out the RSVP cards which they opened up with no problems but when I saw how much better the RSVP cards looked compared to the actual invite, I rushed home and changed the clip art my original invite and had those printed out. They looked great until my FI and I noticed a smudge of green across my name. So I called office max and explained that it kinda bothered me (I was nice). The girl was very confused so she gave me the manager. I went through the whole thing with him and said I really don't mean to be picky but this is important to me. He told me he thinks the girl photocopied the first copy because that is really the only way the smudge would be on every sheet of passes. In the end, he informed me to come in tomorrow and he would take a look and then reprint them.... So hopefully, he just reprints them with no fuss and I will be thrilled!

 

I guess I should have started out with: Hi, my name is Angie and I am a Bridezilla (& totally OCD)

Thanks for tip. I told FI that instead of getting so flustered last night I should have thought more about it. I have to admit, I personally like the second version better so maybe all the drama was meant to be.

I can totally relate. Iâ€m doing the boarding pass invites right now and me and my future hubby are printing and cutting them out. It takes like 32 cuts with the paper cutter and corner cutter. Iâ€m going crazy but they look so cute. I love them but it has really been stressful. Iâ€m wondering why I went with home made invites now.

I don't think that's bridezilla-ish or OCD. Nearly every girl on this board will agree that having your invites looks good is important. They kick start the build up for your wedding plus they are something to keep in the scrapbook. Get them done the way you want them!

If it makes you feel better I'm having similar issues. I almost started crying at one point out of frustration. I can't even get my address labels to line up correctly. They keep printing funky.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
