Milejilo,

 

I'm sorry for posting twice, but like I said before I absolutely love these invites! I will be working on mine within the next few weeks, so I just wanted to ask you a few questions. First, I know that you said it in your original post, but did you get the paper you used for the actual rolled up invites at Kraftoutlet.com or at Kate's? Second, what font did you use for the writing on the invitation (this really makes it look professional!)? And last, are there any tips that you can give me? Such as anything that you learned the hard way or anything to avoid? Any help would be very much appreciated...I feel like I have two full time jobs with both my regular job and this wedding planning, so any time saving info is incredibly helpful! Thanks!

Hi Stephanie... at first we were in search of pretty hand made paper that we were going to stain and burn... but at $1.20 a sheet at kate's paperie we decided against it. Searching through the store we found the kraft paper, which in turn had me searching online for matching labels and mailing tubes.... You should definitely buy it all in one place if you can.

The fonts my brother used are burgues script and celestia antigua.

As far as tips... I didn't really find it too difficult, just a little tedious. Make sure you roll the invite tight with a pencil so it fits in the bottle easily. You'll need someone to help you tie the raffia around the invites. FI says, make sure you give yourself extra room on the sides of the invite so when you burn them you don't burn off any wording. To burn the paper, first roll, then burn and have a damp rag ready to put it out ( shouldn't burn for more than 4 seconds ). oooh, I suggest not using a candle, FI did a couple that way and for some reason it left dark soot on the paper. He used one of those zippo gas lighters for the stove, he complained his fingers hurt, but I just kissed it and made it better, lol.... smile120.gif hope that helps, good luck, can't wait to see them....




I know what you mean, the wedding planning becomes a second job, but it goes by so quickly, enjoy it =)

    • 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?
