I just want to say thank you to all the girls on this website. You ladies really inspire me. I have seen the MIB invites and thought how great they looked and decided I wanted them for my bridal shower. With the girls helpful hints and great ideas this is what I did...

 

I purchased the supplies from Sand Art Supplies

 

Sand Blast Entertainment

 

After we printed the invites on parchment paper, we burned the edges and the name tags.

After that we put an umbrella and 3 small shells in each bottle

Then we rolled them, using a pencil, thanks to the bride that gave me that idea because it worked great

Next we tied Rafia around the middle of the invite with a string long enough to come out of the bottle and tie to the name tag

PS: The supplies for 40 invites came to $2.00 per invite. I will be hand delivering most of them and mailing about 7 of them. From what previous brides on this website said, it should cost less than $3.00 to send them out each.

We split it up over a few days. The burning took about an hour with 2 people doing it. The sand, shells, and umbrella's took about 30 minutes with 1 person. The rolling and tyong the name tags took an hour with 2 people. We did it over 3 days, so it didn't seem that long.

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
