Guess I shouldn't complain, but hard to justify $30 after paying nothing.

 

They don't do free items the way they used to. You can still find some stuff for free by googling, or get a good percentage off.

Your best bet may be a groupon, if you want a few things still.

Their sales are goofy. I've been using VistaPrint for years and there's always a "gotcha" at checkout. If the sale says FREE, then they just make up for it by upcharging on design fees/premium paper. etc. Or they'll charge an arm and a leg for shipping. I used to go in with 2 or 3 different promo codes to try, and sometimes the best option wasn't the FREE ones!! It also depends on your quantities and stuff.

I guess I should go ahead and show all of the things I've ordered so far (key words - so far, haha) through Vistaprint.  Of course many, many of these ideas wouldn't have been possible without the help of the ladies on this forum for creativity, wording and more.  Thank you so much for your help!  I've only made 2 orders for all of this stuff - one order with the $70 worth of stuff for $17 Groupon and one with the $100 worth of stuff for $25 Groupon.  So that's $42 I spent, and then the total came to $26 for one order with the shipping (I'm in Canada where everything costs a bazillion dollars to ship) and the other order came to $60 in total with shipping.  So for everything I've spent under $130.  Not bad, although I haven't received anything for free.  That may be days in the past now! 

 

These are our At Home Reception Invitations.  We currently live in Calgary, but my family and friends are all back in Ontario so we're having 2 receptions - 1 out here with his family and 1 in Windsor with my family and friends.  We are also in the process of having a new home built, so we'll probably have a house-warming party for our work friends (we work for the same company) sometime in September but we'll just do a Facebook invite for that.  It won't really be a reception.  Question for you guys - I haven't actually put through the order for these yet.  Is it tacky to include our registry information on them?  I say yes (and my family and friends would probably agree with me) but he says no and his mom actually wants it included since their friends won't be going to the wedding and they'll still want to get us something.  My other option would be to just include inserts in the invitations that will go out to the people who want it.  Looks like I just answered my own question, haha.  Since we can only order 100 minumum of the postcards I am making just one design for both receptions.

These are my matching bridal shower invitations.  I have ordered these and I love them!  They were also a minimum order of 100 although we really only needed about 50.

These were made on business cards.  I purchased towel clips for our guests and will be putting them in the OOT bags clipped onto these cards.  I just got back from a wedding in Punta Cana and they were the best things that the bride brought with her!  Enough clips for everyone.  Not only did the clips hold the towels on the beach chairs in the wind, but they also helped identify members of the group and that way we were all sitting together near the pool.  I loved it.  I purchased 50 of these.  I may need to get more once we get our final numbers.

These will be inserted in the plastic ID holders I got at Walmart (12 for $2 or something ridiculously cheap like that) and I ordered the coil wrist thingies from E-Bay in our turquoise colour as well.  I also ordered 50 of these but may need to get more.

This I have not ordered yet and I'm not sure if I will.  I made DIY door hangers out of turquoise paper and PowerPoint but this just looks so much nicer.  On the other side I'll have a 'Welcome, we hope you enjoy your stay' and maybe 'Do not disturb, we're resting up for Lauren and Tyrel's wedding,'  I'm not sure how to get the hole punched nicely in these rack cards.  I keep trying to buy a jumbo hole punch from Michael's but one that I bought sits too closely to the edge and won't centre, and one that I think will work they have been out of stock for months.  So I might make it really difficult and get a circle cutter which I'm sure I'll screw up haha.  Luckily these come in minimum orders of 50 and I sure hope we won't have that many rooms.  Then if I mess up I'll have extras.  I'm still not sure how many people will actually come.  We've got 40 people already and that's just family, not even our party has all booked yet.  Any advice from brides who have made these door hangers before about the hole part?  Thanks!

Made out of business cards as well, I made these to go on the tables at my shower.  I'll be putting them in placecard holders (a couple per table, not at each place) and we'll still be giving maybe a small pretzel or fortune cookie favour as well.

These are for our parents.  I really would have prefered tank tops for all of the parents as that's what they like best, but for the price I couldn't say no.  I hope they'll at least wear them one of the days.  I will be putting them in the special OOT bags I'm making for the parents.

And finally on postcards as well (so minimum order of 100 even though I'll probably need 30 tops) I made a welcome book to put in the OOT bags.  It will be made of 3 separate postcards, back and front so 6 pages.  I haven't decided how to attach them all yet, maybe a small holepunch and thread ribbon or raffia through.  Any ideas, let me know!  Thanks!

Phew, so as I mentioned, that's it for now.  I'm sure I'll come up with more that I just have to have, albeit unnecessary sometimes, haha.  Thanks for reading!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
