Venting about my OOT bags

Recommended Posts

I think your bags look great, I would be more than happy to receive one. I'm always the one that never ever brings a bag to put my stuff in.

 

I actually think the colours look okay, slighty different from the colour you showed them with, but unless you put them with the dressess, no-one will realise the difference. As everyone has said, spend the money on something else and give your FI a great big kiss for being so nice and understanding :-)

the dresses are actually brown :). it is more that the other stuff i was going to put in there doesn't go anymore. oh well. i guess i'm a freak. thanks you guys for being sweet and i will hopefully learn to live with them. if i can't within a few days, maybe i'll splurge. i'm not sure what i'd do with the rest - maybe give them to all the friends who couldn't make it to the wedding?

I know you're very upset about the bags, but in my honest opinion I think they look great. No, the colors aren't what you envisioned, but they are great bags and your guests will love them.

I think your bags look very nice and would be loved by your guests.

 

I am going against the grain on this...

If you don't like them, I say change them. In your mind you had a different vision. If you have it in your budget then go for it.

I think that is a great idea!

Ok, here's my 2 cents and honestly, I think it will mean a lot coming from me. When I read your first thread, my inital reaction was "Oh DEFINITELY, YES have them re-done!!!" If my colors were off, I would DEFINITELY spend the money to get them right. I know, I'm just as crazy as you.

 

HOWEVER, after seeing the pics of your bags, I retract that statement. I know those colors aren't exact, but they are definitely in the same family and honestly, that's all that matters. If you had yellow and purple - hell YES, get new ones. But here, they look FANTASTIC!!! Not to mention, NO ONE is going to hold up your bag against the other items in you wedding to make sure that the colors match. The colors are SOOOO close, really. They're beautiful.

 

Check this off your To-Do list and move on to the next project. Ok?

NYJen - thank you. If I did redo them, I'd do a one color version, as I think that maybe they are less jarring (like Sarah's red cabo design). But maybe I'll get used to this and I appreciate your opinion. Again, I think I need to sleep on it b/c everything is worse until you sleep on it (of course - w/o much sleep on a 5 hour flight, it may be worse tomorrow!)
