SunBride's Planning thread (one year late)

Recommended Posts

Great planning thread!! Can you share the template for the mugs?

 

I found those same mugs at our local Dollar store but had not yet started the trial-and-error of fitting the template.

Thanks for all the compliments ladies! I am happy to hear it has been helpful. I must admit I feel somewhat like a looser with no life doing a planning thread now, when in fact the truth is I was procratinating on all the important stuff I should have been doing yesterday

Yes the mugs can be used for hot or cold but they just won't keep the temperature as long as a better qualit mug.

I don't have a template, like I said I just went trial and error. But I can see what I have tonight and post if it's worth sharing. If you have the insert that came with your mug the trial and error process is really not that bad (especially if you don't mind if some of the image you are using gets cut off, which was the case for the image I used)

Yes we were only engaged 4 months, I spent the first month and a half choosing a resort and looking for inspiration online, then I shifted into DIY mode for the remaining 2.5 months. I spent so much time shopping as I am a very thrifty person and didn't want to spend a ton. But at least with only 10 guests it made it a bit easier for the DIY stuff.

 

My plan was to have NOTHING left to do one week before departure. I had a timeline set out with deadlines for all the different projects. But a few things fell behind. I had told myself whatever wasn't done a week before wasn't getting done at all. I really wish I had stuck to that.

They were so easy. I just printed the background picture on cardstock (had it printed at Staples as I didn't want to use the work printer more than necessary). I was able to fit 2 per page. Then I printed my info on vellum overlays (again 2 per page, side by side). I had to use a lazer jet printer for this because with my ink jet it would smudge, so I did it at work. Then I just punched 2 holes in the top and tied a ribbon! I also used a piece of vellum tape at the top to keep the layers from shifting apart. This was not necessary but I already owned the vellum tape from scrapbooking projects. Do not use regular 2 sided tape because you can see it through the vellum.
