Recommended Posts

Jessalyn I am absolutely speechless. And trust me that rarely happens. I think I have stared at your invites for like a half hour now. They look fantastic!!! I cannot believe you made those yourself. Seriously I am going to put every girls great ideas here into a book and sell it for people planning DW's. We will all be rich!!!! These invites are so nice. I love the color and look to them. Putting them in a box makes it so nice and I love the starfish!!!!!

Jessalyn, I can totally see why they consumed so much of your time! They are beautiful however, very personal and beach romantic. Can't wait to hear about guests' responses.

So, I LOVE your invites. I want to do something similar. Do you think it was worth all the time to do it yourself vs. the money you saved? I don't know if I have the skills that you do. Are they wrapped in fabric or is that tissue?

I the middle of preparing the invites, I didn't think it was worth the time, energy and stress. But after I saw the end result in the box with the label, I really loved them and had a great feeling about them. I honestly could have saved a lot of money by just doing regular invites, which sounds good now as the budget is getting tighter.

I'm not sure if I would do it all over again.

The boxes are lined in fabric. It is actually 2 pieces of fabric with fusible batting in the sandwiched in the middle. Then the fabric was lifting off of the batting, so I had to hand stitch each of the sides to keep the layers together.


Thanks again to everyone for all the nice comments.....makes me feel good! smile72.gif

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
