I really hope this works right this time around.

 

These are the drafts of my invitations. I will have a pink ribbon around the outside of them under the starfish when complete. I stayed up all night trying to get the sizing right. What do you think? I'm not all that thrilled with the image in the background but it is the one thing that FI asked for. I think they have turned out pretty good so far. I has written instructions on all of my drafts so I can remeber what I did to get them to look that way. :) I feel so good that I am getting such a big project done.

ahh, the world of wedding planning - tho i've been done for a few months now and have no excuse for staying up all night!

they look good! finding the dimensions is such a pita. i have 2 suggestions/comments: 1) from what i can see, it looks like the blue starfish has been stretched, and it throws the invite off balance a little. that could be why you're not loving the image. if it's not stretched, then i apologize. #2 is more of a question really - do you want your guests to see writing before they open the ribbon w/ the starfish? if not, try bigger paper and fold it in from all 4 directions. jmho, tho wink.gif now go get some sleep!

Lauren- Unfortunately the image is one complete piece not three seperate pieces. I'm wondering though maybe I can try and narrow the image and get it to look better. I'n not hating it overall I just think something need to be tweaked. I think at this point though I have looked at my invitations so much I am going crosseyed.

In regards to the wording sticking out I'm fine with that. I actually have cut the outer paper to let it peak through.

 

This is the invitation I fell in love with and am basing mine off of.

Give yourself a kiss on the shoulder for getting a huge task off your to-do list...the invites look good..if you're not crazy about the starfish I would look for a non-pixelated picture of starfish...that would make the starfish look crisper and maybe you'll love it more...?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
