Confessions

Recommended Posts

i confess that i've let myself get too obsessed with and upset over our invitations. i'm a graphic designer, so i feel like they have to be totally amazing. everyone will expect them to be. problem is, they are NOT. i designed them specifically for this digital output that our print guy does that is super cheap ... he said he could do multiple colors ... well, long story short, he couldn't match my colors using that process AT ALL (like not even close), so now i struggled printing stuff out myself at work after hours (every day for about 2 weeks now!). it was seriously like every single sheet of cardstock got jammed and had to be resent to print, or it would come out streaky or splotchy, and the two-sided stuff isn't lined up, so now when it's trimmed it's going to be all crooked ... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHH!!! i've been in tears nearly every day trying to get these done. i'm sure *some* of it is just me being super picky but they are just a NIGHTMARE. i confess that i wish i had just bought a martha stewart kit, printed our info down the center, and was done with it. they would have been beautiful, and more importantly, they would have been FINISHED!

 

sorry, that was way longer a rant than i expected!

I'm so sorry, that stinks for you and must be really frustrated. I'm sure your guests will love the invites. Just send the crooked ones to FIs side. :)

This man is happily married now with three kids and we talk on myspace sometimes and he knows that I am engaged etc no harm although I have never told my FI because they dont talk anymore since they havent worked together in over ten years I acknowledged I knew the guy!
Do I need to tell him ??The Best Man says no that hes too jealous and it would bother him if the tables were turned and it was his wife! HELP
Ok ladies just wanted to let you know I told him all is well :)
He said he kinda suspected it by the way I reacted when I said I knew him from the picture but he didnt want to accuse me yada yada! I got a pretty good guy we just agreed that we shouldnt invite him to the wedding LOL!
Thanks for all your advice smile03.gif

I confess I think I now have a little girl-crush on my date twin (she thinks I'm funny)!

We actually sent out invites to one group of people that are invited to Cancun and then a totally different, wicked cheap invite to the people only invited to our AHR.

I do have another confession ~ I've known my FI pretty much forever and when we were in high school I dated a couple of his friends. Now two of those friends are coming to our wedding with their wives, one's even a groomsmen. I'm not sure how I feel about it but since my FI knows and doesn't care it's cool but still a little funny to have someone I "KNOW" (ah-hem) as a GM.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
