I used Trish at Embellishsp.com and she was amazing to work with and did a fabulous job of capturing my style.


Here is a link showing the various drafts she created.

I started off wanting more silver detail as I was going to wear a silver dress. She created the silver gatefold design with an envelope when that was the plan. Then I got the dress not long after getting her initial draft and found that I did not like the dress. I switched to a white dress with black lace trim (though I am adding material to make it full length).

That set her off into a whole new direction.


Then she came up with two versions one with the invite in a box of fuschia pink feathers and the other with the invite in a pocket covered in black lace and then that in a box with black and silver feathers. The invites have swavorski crystal accents.


I couldn't get over the original gatefold design so we decided to do a gatefold with lace trim sealed with a fuschia ribbon and placed into a white box with a clear top. I may but rose petals in the box...not sure yet. The FI did not like the feathers....but 'over the top' is so me...but he is the exact opposite...Mr. Low Key..I caved since I got the lace. I guess thinking about it from a guys perspective he is Mr. Ultra Macho former football player and felt funny sending out invites with feathers and lace and pink ribbon lol. So I ditched the feathers.

I have been resizing pics to the teeniest proportions and cannot get the accept to post on the forum. Any tips for resizing? I just tried 200 x 150 pixels and that was too large also.

I can never get snapfish pics to load on the forum. I could be doing something wrong but it never works for me. I use shutterfly instead for that reason.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
