Thanks for the positive comments, girls!

 

OuchieBride - the thin palm tree is a lowercase "f" in the font Tropicana BV and the palm tree in the circle is a lowercase "g" in the same font. I attached the font to my original post, so you should be able to download it and put it in your fonts file to use. If you can't download it from there, you can go to dafont.com and download it.

 

Kelz & Finsup - For the sleeves, I folded the heavy weight paper that I wanted to use in 3rds (use a scoring tool for this - like the fiskars rotary cutter that I showed a picture of - it makes it SO much easier to make the lines straight). Then I used my Fiskars cutting blade to slice an "insert pocket" into the middle section of my folded paper. I made the cut slightly diagonal, because I liked that look best, although you could make the cut straight if you preferred that. Then I used hot glue to glue down the ends (top, bottom, and side). Don't glue the inside fold, because then you may have problems with the ticket fitting in straight. I used a bone folder (you can get one at any craft store - it looks kind of like a butter knife) to smooth down the edges that I glued. Then to finish it off, I tied rafia around the middle. When I took it to the post office to mail, the lady told me that because there was a knot in the middle of the envelope, it might get rejected by the machine, but as far as I know, everyone received their Save the Dates already. So I guess the lesson from that is to just try to keep the knots small.

shanelle - I actually have NO IDEA what I'll do for the formal invites... I'm actually kinda scared to think about it. (I hate making decisions! .... they're just so... final.) I'm sure I'll spend countless hours on here searching the forum for inspiration. cheesy.gif

 

Jenna20 - I actually bought the Fiskars Trimmer at Michaels. I'm not sure if Staples carries it. It was about $40 at Michaels, but just get one of their 40% off coupons and that drastically reduces the price. (Although it is TOTALLY worth the $40)

I think you did a great job on your STD's. This is exactly what I wanted to do with my invitations. We are having a airplane themed wedding at the American Airlines museum in an airplane hanger. So I was so excited to see what you were able to do. Congratulations on the great job that you did.

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
