    Hey ladies.. I have a couple posts to catch up to but in the meanwhile, i need your opinions. I'm working on my formal invites and have come up with 4 designs. I shouldn't say designs but, I mean "formats". This page consists of 4 gatefold inserts in which I'll cut.... which one do you like most?

    My colors are green and brown. My gatefold card will most likely be green and the inserts will be white cardstock.

    I'm attaching an image for those who can't open documents (but i have to warn you the img is a bit blurry). For those that can open the word file, I used "scriptina" from dafont.com and "lucinda" if the fonts are a lil funky.

    Click the image to open in full size.

      I like the white one (right side) it goes with your colors :)

      I am too caught up in the thinking i need to feel as though its "the one" and I'm stressing out about not having that feeling and the time crunch! After trying on about 30 dresses (or so it seems like that many!) I do have a pretty good idea of what I don't want so am able to weed things out much more quickly now! There are a few different styles I like and this dress sort of incorporates a little from each of those (ie, strapless, lace, beading, short train, etc).

      It has been however, 24hours since I've found the dress and I'm still thinking seriously about it so that's a good sign! :-)
      I say there is such thing as trying on to many dresses. I looked at tons of dresses on line, I picked like 10, then I went through them saying what I liked and didn't like about each dress,I was able to cut them off my list. I ended up with 1 that I wanted to try on. thinking just cause I like it on a model, doesn't mean I'll like it on me, but I got it on and just said it was it.
      I want to another shop to try on other dresses to make sure, and everytime I put when on, I would compare to the mori lee. So I just bought it, I don't think it was 'OMG this is the dress is what I dreamed about all my life' kind of thing, it was 'it looks great, not over 1000$'
      Just to point out I didn't exactly have that feeling either.
      I personally love the one you picked, but you have to make sure you love it. Maybe go back to the store and try 1 or 2 you have tryed on and liked, then go back to the Mori Lee, who knows maybe you'll make your mind up, without having to drive 4 hours!!

        I didn't have that special "this is the one" feeling either, to be honest. I just really liked it, it was the type of dress I had been looking for and was the most flattering on me. It probably varies from person to person, but sometimes I think we put too much pressure on ourselves to have some sort of magical moment when we try on our dress and maybe that just doesn't happen all of the time, you know? Just go with your gut- if you really like this dress the best out of all of the dresses that you've tried, it may be the one for you.

            Shoot, Tonya I forgot to quote you in on this but I like the one on the bottom right the best, but maybe I would just adjust the position of your wording or flower image so that they don't overlap quite as much - just so the flowers show in the gap between your details for the group activity and the welcome dinner. But I love the orchids with it and I think that image shows your colours the best and the red centers give it a little bit extra too!! And I'm totally going to save your template too since I'm not quite sure yet what I want to do for a brochure, or welcome, or even just an insert in the OOT bags so that everyone has an idea of the few things we've scheduled for the week. Thanks!

Would hate for there not be any last minute deals or rooms available at the last minute. Plus, while it sounds like having additional photographers there to get more photos would be nice, I'd be concerned that there could be discomfort or even confusion among them.
            Thanks for mentioning about the confusion or discomfort. I definitely hadn't thought of it that way and you make total sense. I'm going to call the tour operator that I found the deal with and see what options they give you if a room comes up cheaper down the road. I mean, the hard part is that I'm not sure if my photographers will be able to use the room over night because their schedule is super busy already, but I guess that's just one of those things that I'll have to live with to get the pictures I want!!

            Thanks for all the other comments too! I'll likely be booking today!

            Isn't that exciting! Mine bumped down just over a week ago and I did a little dance. For me personally, I have to be under the x months, 2 weeks mark to really feel like I'm that many months away though. Haha, and yet I'm still trying to convince FI that 5 1/2 months is soon! I'm totally in a hurry up and wait mode lately though so I can't wait to get into that four month marker (even though it'll be CHRISTMAS at that point!).

            Has anyone else here started their Christmas shopping yet? I'm totally determined to get it done by December 6. A weird date I know, but that's the first weekend in December so that's my final weekend to get it done. I doubt that FI and I will do too much for each other but we have to send most of our family's gifts away so I need to have them early.

                Tonya!!! I love the bottom one with the white orchid as well!
                I'm just looking at the pic you posted so it's hard to see it, but the wording in the middle paragraph does get a little lost, but it might just be because my laptop doesn't want to cooperate and open it right now!

                Maybe if you can adjust it like someone said earlier - or if you can enlarge all the font to make it a little more bold and stand out more (you just wouldn't have as much space between the writing) or maybe if you can watermark the orchid, then it wouldn't be so bold!

                I do think they look wicked! I like a lot, but I'm biased, orchids are my FAV!

                  OMG, Meghan, your on xmas shopping now lol!! to cute!! I am the last minute shopper. Not as bad as to shop on the 24th but last minute enough.
                  my SIL got married in Aug, plus we are getting married in April, as an entire family both mine and the FI decided not to exchange gift's this year. There is 1 kid, we will get him something but that's it. We just can't afford it with me not working and the whole wedding thing. So I can finally say, I'm just looking forward to the dinner!! Yummmm....

                    melidell, it's about time we got into the 5 month range!!! we're some of the last in the month!

                    meghan, i know i'm coming into this a little bit late, but have you shown your FI moments that matters work? that's what tipped the scales in my favor as far as photography goes. these will be your memories of your day and you don't want to have to settle!! let us know what you decide!

                    i'm right there with you on the christmas shopping too! i hate being stressed at the last minute and not being able to enjoy the season!

                    tonya, i love the two on the right. i would only say the top right because the words don't get lost, but if you can change around the word placement a little bit, the bottom one would be perfect!

                      Thanks for your help guys. I will have to play around with the image and wording and see what I get. Hopefully this weekend I can have that done, I'll keep you guys posted!

                      Meghan- I don't think I'll be Christmas shopping this year -=X With the wedding coming up FI and I are totally at a financial crisis... we already decided we weren't going to get each other gifts. Maybe just gifts for our families.

                      OH, I should've mentioned this earlier. Last Saturday I had my "surprise" bachelorette party. I'm still waiting on pix but I had a wild night that included male strippers and bar hopping lol. I'm not all for the male strippers but the experience was fun, although I was pulled up on stage for a lap dance. Oh god, can't wait to show you guys pix whenever my friends post them.
