      Okay this might be a very silly question - but on your tags and program, how did you get the white writing? Did you print on white cardstock and then just print the blue and green background on them? I hope that question makes sense! :)

        Yes, that makes perfect sense! We did print them on white cardstock, so the white writing is like empty space between the color printing. In MS Publisher, we just created blue and green squares and chose white as our font color. When we printed it, we just cut inside the borders (so that it looked like the entire paper was blue or green).

        We ended up using quite a bit of color ink for this wedding! Although, that project didn't use nearly as much as the bags did.

              StarlitK - if you still check this thread, can you tell me if you used the binders for the LED throwies instead of the strapping tape, or in addition to the strapping tape? Also, did you just assemble these the morning of the wedding? How long did they stay lit? Thanks so much for all the help you have provided!!

                  Wow, phenominal job! I can't believe all the decorations for the reception. How did you pack all that stuff to take with you?

                    We used binders only. The strapping tape does not give pressure to hold the led prongs to the batteries.

                    We were going to assemble them the night before b/c LEDs will stay lit for over 24 hours. The one we tested beforehand at home stayed lit for closer to 48. It does depend how many LEDs you have on each battery. I would recommend testing them at home before!

                    However, when we gave Anabel all of our stuff at DT, she offered to assemble the LED throwies herself, so she did. We were VERY grateful for that. I don't think they charged us for it, but that could have been b/c I had expressed being really disappointed in DT at that point (the whole three weddings on my day thing).


                    Kate&Devon - We borrowed a HUGE suitcase from a friend and had 2 big suitcases each. (4 total, plus our carry-ons). It all fit!
