      Jess, I love the calligraphy. I wish it was in my budget. I will prob have to do labels. Def not my handwriting as I can barely read it myself.

        Erika - try etsy - you can do an alchemy bid on how much you are willing to spend and you will get a bunch of calligraphy artists who bid on it - you'd be surprised - with the economy being crappy you can get some great deals!

        That's awesome you can do it yourself Megan

          I recently discovered etsy.com and you can a lot of unique things for weddings. I am having someone make hair pins with a peacock feather for my bridesmaids by one of the sellers.

            Gosh I guess I'm way off on invites, I thought I'd read somewhere that if you're doing a destination wedding to send invites 6 months out? So I thought I was late sending mine out, after reading your responses I feel much better.


            I'm sending out my invites the end of the month and giving them until July 1st to reply, only because I'm sure if I make it later half of them will forget/put it off and never rsvp at all. I'm starting to think I should wait and send them out mid June and ask for rsvp by July 15th?

            Do y'all think I'm sending them to soon??

              Etsy is a wonderful place to buy things! I've purchased many things on there! I'm actually going to get ring bearer bowl from a seller on etsy, I love it because you can get so many things that are different on there! Not your typical department store stuff!

              Here's what it looks like:

                Whitni--
                Can you give us the link to that seller? Those are to cute, and I would love to use something like that afterward to keep my jewelery in!

                  Well, I'm definitely way off as my invites have been out for a couple of weeks, but I'm wondering if there are any other Canadian November brides who are finding that their timing is completely different due to charter flights and packages. Or are there Canadian November brides who are doing travel arrangements differently?

                    I was planning to send my formal invites sometime in August. I have no idea if this is correct or not! Most of the people who I know for sure are coming (and I want to come) have already booked or are in the process. I did Save the Dates, so the balance of invites are for the people who probably won't come anyway.... I hope it works out!

                      OK I have a question to everyone just sending their invites out. Are you sending your invites to ppl who have already booked their trips? I just couldn't imagine giving such short notice. But also I am doing a cruise so it has to be paid off by 8.24.09. I sent out my invites in Feb in think with our booking deadline being 3.31.09 it has now been extended to 5.31.09... I just felt like with the economy the way it is I wanted ppl to have as much time as possible to pay on their trips... Am I wrong
