I am using the pocket folder for my invites. Does anyone have any ideas for embellishments other than ribbons?

 

Here is a pic of folder I am using and color. My colors are brown, coral and cream.

How about raffia? or is that a ribbon? Can you tell I am not DIY? Or a starfish stamp or watermark, or a seal with your monogram on it? and maybe its my computer but I dont see a pic

You could do wax seals with a monogram stamper to close them. I just bought a crap-load of tiny palm tree charms off e-bay I need to figure out how to affix them.

oh gosh, the possibilities are endless!

 

You could do jute or raffia, a bellyband of printed paper, something with your monogram; something beaded- I have some gorgeous flat shells I'm using on invitations for someone right now.

Just go spend some time walking around one of those craft stores (JoAnn's, Michael's, Hobby Lobby)... look at the scrapbook paper, look at the ribbon, look at the beads the wire, etc. Think of what you want your "theme" to be and then look for things that fit into that theme.

Great post! I'm wondering the same thing about mine. It seems like everything I think of has been done a million times - but then a friend reminded me that almost every idea is new to your guests since they don't spend all day on wedding forums. wink.gif

 

 

Not to sidetrack but...

How are you mailing the ones with flat shells? I'm trying to do sand dollars but can't figure out a way to mail them without them breaking. I had thought of boxed invites but I can't find boxes with a small enough width to mail.

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
