    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.

    Snapfish: Share:Registration_Opt1

    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.
