Hi all...many (many) of you are so creative and always have good suggestions so here I am asking for some help, if anyone's up for it. I am making my own invitations using a petal envelope and 3 flat cards on the inside....one flat card is brown and the other flat card is light blue (I cut it down a little so you can see the brown peeping from behind) and the 3rd card is a metallic white--which is the one I'm using to write the invite info on. This card is approximately 5x5, not much room to work with. This is my verse:

 

Because you have shared in their lives

by your friendship and love

you are invited to share

with our daughter,

 

Jessica Torres

and

Dominique Rodrigue

 

when they exchange marriage vows

and begin their new life together

Mr. & Mrs. Angel Torres

I used Chopin Script for our names but the spacing just seems off...and I wanted to have a pretty, swirly ampersand (in light blue) in between our names but I cant seem to do it right or create something eye-catching. The rest of the wording is in the Flourish font. I'm using Word (dont know if this is the issue with spacing, etc)...any suggestions would be gladly appreciated...so sorry this is lengthy. TIA!!

Hey jessica,

 

Is this the type of flourish ampersand you're looking for? Here's a jpg of something I just whipped up really quick. If you want it I can email the file to you...

I actually made it in my FotoFusion program and the font sizes there aren't the same as in Word or Powerpoint. I basically just created a 5x5 canvas, then a couple text boxes, copy/pasted her text and hit a button to size it to the box. It seriously took me like 5 minutes for the whole thing... I love that program!

    • 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?
