      I think they are beautiful! I was thinking of putting a magnet in ours as well.

        I think your STD's look GREAT!! I completely understand the meltdowns.....I am having them too! Who knew this would be so difficult :) If you are thinking of another color to have for your wedding that complements pink, brown would be a good color. That is what our colors are going to be. I love them and you can do so much with these colors. If you want to e-mail me and I wouldn't mind helping you at all!!!

My friend never seemed to understand what I wanted and I felt bad for all the changes but at the same time I wanted to scream because they were not getting done.

              In addition, when I went to print them out at Kinko's they only do it in a plain card stock with a sort of glossy finish, I wanted more of a traditional invitation paper, you know, maybe textured with a "softer" finish.. so I ended up buying the paper and printing them myself. My poor FI just didn't know how to handle me this weekend. Now I am sure the font is too small for my grandma to read and I don't dare ask my friend to change it again becuase he might just kill me!

              I also ordered free magnets from visaprint to put in the with STD cards. Do you think that is overkill? I was thinking that since they were free, why not, then maybe I wouldn't worry so much about people tossing the card aside and forgetting about it....

              So here they are, Sorry if the picture size is too big or too small, this is my first time uploading a picture on this site.

              Click the image to open in full size.
              First thing - the easiest to fix : you can bring your own paper at Kinko's - on top of that they will only charge you for half charge, if you bring your own. We went to Kinko with our paper and it worked out so well ! So go to Hobby Lobby or Michaels and order online whatever it is you like, and go for it.

              Second - you STD looks awesome If you don't want to commit on a color, did you try the watermark ?

              Like, select a nice pic of a beach or landscape you like, and make it very shallow ? If you work with office 07, it's so easy : you select the picture, go to picture tools, recolor (on the left hand side) and select watermark (second row, third one). One photoshop I'm sure it's as easy.

              That way you keep a nice landscaping background, but with natural colors - and you can pick your color later on.

                It's really called "wash-out" in ppt or word

                I made three slides very quickly so that you get an idea what I mean.

                  Thanks for your help ladies, they were sent out. I haven't gotten much feedback on them from guests other than my FMIL complained of the font being to small. (It is bigger than what's on this post though, you can read it).

                  Invites hopefully will be better!
