I think they look good bigger, the design stands out more. They are really cute! I made mine this weekend, I will try to learn how to post pictures so I can show you all how they turned out!

ohh good I was waiting for you to come on... I know you did these as well and I didn't see the velum on yours. Did you put your velum on the inside of your bag?

thanks everyone for your feedback. The reason I made them bigger was because they are going to be in the sand and I wanted people to be able to read them. I'm going to keep playing around with them and see what looks better.

I ended up using vellum and printing a rose motif on it for my roses. You really can't see it in the pictures at all. Only if you are close and in person. Don't stress over it. They really look great. In hind sight Iwould have used brighter colors and made the design larger. So larger is probably THE best.

I love them Natalie, I like the bigger ones better or cutting the bag down and making the first ones a little bigger. I feel like I've done nothing so far!

Did anyone ever try the clear labels? I still want to do that instead of vellum? My caterer and I just decided to do the cocktail reception outside and so I think I might need these now.

So I am one of the few but I really like them larger. Also while this IS more work try cutting a square out of the bag and adhereing the vellum to the inside... kind of a stained glass effect/more translucent.

 

Do you plan on using both monogrammed and blank bags? I have the same logo

 

Also, someone mentioned having bags printed. A knottie , can't remember tried this route and it turned out fine. I think it has to be fed into the printer one by one however.

    • 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?
