This is very late in the thread, but my sister had T-shirt favors for her wedding. They read something along the lines of "I went to ___ & ____'s wedding and all I got was this losey t-shirt." There was a stick figure picture of a bride and groom on it. Everyone LOVED these! In fact, we are coming up on her 3 year anniversary and I still see people wearing the t-shirt!

    I totally agree with you that the boys shouldnt wear the t-shirts-I was thinking the same thing. But to go off topic a little, did any of you ladies see that pink personalized flask on Knot.com I so love that idea-but they only send to the US and I live in Canada!!!

      I saw one of those at a store I went to this weekend - let me know if you want to find out more about it (i DO ship to Canada!), I might go back there to buy a purse anyway.

        OK, I totally missed this thread when it started. Glenda, dude, you are serious crackup! I love all your tshirt ideas.

        So today I purchase some rhinestone "Bride" shirts from Click the image to open in full size.

        I also got their customized panties to say "Rafael's Booty" on the back!! I think he'll like that :)

          you can get iron on rhinestone sayings for BM and brides, which are pretty cheap to make

            Hi All. Just wanted to put my 2 cents in here - I have a custom design t-shirt and apparel company. I give all DW brides super great rates. Pretty much you can name your price and we can definitely work something out. I do mostly bulk orders (12+), but have a heat transfer machine in-house, so I can definitely do single items as well. PM me or check out my site to get some ideas. Custom Discount Apparel, Custom Design and Screenprinting
            Thx! Toni

              I made my own shirts, I was also concerned about doing t-shirts, so I did golf shirts for the guys and tank tops for the woman. I paid about 7$ for each shirt (searched forever to find some at a decent price in nice color) and then used iron-on transfers. I should warn you though that iron on transfers don't look good on dark colored fabric, the back of the transfer shows through, so it kinda looks like a big piece of packing tape. It's not as obvious at all on a white shirt, but it's very obvious on a colored shirt. I was very disappointed. This would not be a big deal if you can cut right around your design but I coudln't do that (design was too complicated). I ended up ironing the transfers after taking off the backing, which melted the transfer more into the shirt and kinda got rid of the "tape" look, although it still wasn't the best and also the ink started to smear because you are not suppose to iron with the paper backing still on the transfer.

              Not only was the transfer obvious, but also with darker material, the black writing didn't show as obvious so you need to have big bubble letters and a big obvious design, no intricate little things. So I had to play with my logo to do some changes and then re-print all my transfers all over again.

              For the letters (i.e. bridesmaid, father of the bride etc) I ended up using dollarama iron on transfers because it looked nicer than having the writing with the "tape" look from the transfers I printed myself. The only disappointment there was that I didn't like the font of the dollarama letters as much as I liked the font I had used to make my own writing transfers.

              all in all it turned out okay but was SUCH a hassle, in part because of the colored t-shirt thing, and in part because the 2nd time around I forgot to flip my image (i.e. make a miror image). So in all I printed all the images 3 times (and the transfers are like 15$ for 10 pages or something like that)

                    All my shirts were black and I got special iron on transfer paper for dark colors at Stapels or Office Depot and it worked out great. In fact I noticed that my mom had her shirt on last week - held up pretty good!
