First Draft of my Menu Cards

Recommended Posts

oh...yes..fonts....i want to change those....just forgot! (Sarah gave me some that I LOVE...) Problem is....i can't figure out where they download to. Or how to get them to work. So, when my FI comes home, I will get him to show me. And I will use different fonts.

 

I thought I had centered them...though....having really never created anything in powerpoint before....other than stealing Morgans stuff....i had trouble with that. I will try to center them better!

 

I would LOVE to work on yours Courtney! Or, send you this when its done, and you can add your own menu to it.

 

I am going to try to get it right, then print it off and see how I want to display it. I will let everyone know and have a looksee when its done!

 

Thanks girls!

I center stuff in powerpoint two ways.

1. stretch the text box so it covers end to end. Then use the text center button

2. turn on the grid (view-->grid & gridlines-->display grid on screen)

I use powerpoint a lot for my job so I've gotten pretty use to designing things with it.

Installing fonts it pretty simple. I download them from dafont into a folder i made for them in my documents. Then I unzip them & move the file into the C:WindowsFonts folder. Viola, you have a pretty new font.


Windows Vista : Right-click on the font files > "Install"
Windows XP : Put the font files into C:WindowsFonts
Mac OS X : Double-click the font file > "Install font" button.

Cool! Thanks!

I got sucked into Dafont!! Eeksss!!! How do you know what to look for!!! I think i downloaded like 8 fonts! Wow! I am going to play with them tomorrow.

 

Thanks for the tip about stretching the box to the end of the papers. I was trying to make the boxes small...so yah, i guess if you stretch it, then centre text, it WOULD center it all! Great tip! Thanks!!

Nice job, now you have me wondering how Im going to do ours.

I found a spelling error before you print final copies. The dessert header should be Postres you have Lostres. But I see it spelled correctly right below.

I know what you mean about dafont.com .. but just take some time and play around.

 

If you know you want script writing, focus on that search first, etc.

 

I downloaded a TON of fonts on my other laptop, which has since crashed, so now I am back to square one for everything I don't already have printed.

 

It SUCKS!!!

I think they look GREAT! With a little bit of fancy font, and the typos above fixed, I think they'll be fantastic!

 

Also, if you're printing on tan, what about using a nice chocolate brown instead of the black?

 

I don't know what your wedding colors are, but you might also think of incorporating one of those into the "shadow" under the flourish. Note though, that printing on tan you'll have to run a few test copies to make sure the colors look the way you want.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
