Hi!
I feel your frustration, I've been working on the final touches of my invitations for the last two days straight and I still have things to fine tune!
As for the font in the link above, yes, you have to download it. Then once you do that you will have to open it and put it into the fonts folder on your computer so that all of your programs will be able to read it. I will do my best to write out steps for you! Ok, here goes...

1. Hit the download button and a window should pop up called "Opening wmtrees1.zip"

2. You then have the option to Open it or Save it. Personally I save it, so select "Save File" and hit OK. Your computer should start automatically downloading it.

3. Once it is downloaded you will need to open it. On my computer, when I save it, it will show up in a zipped folder on my desktop. Click the zipped folder to open it. A window should come up with the file for the font in it.

4. On the left hand side of the window it should say "File tasks", "Extract all files", click "Extract all files". Follow the instructions of the Extraction Wizard, it should be extracted to your desktop unless you change the folder location. It will aslo prompt you to open the extracted file... say yes.

5. When that window opens, hit "Folders". On the left hand side of the window, select "My Computer" and then "Control Panel". You should see things like "Administrative tools", "Fonts", "Network connections". Click and drag the font file, into the "Fonts" folder.

6. It should now be in the Font folder, (open the folder and look for the font just to be sure) and when you open any word processing program (like Publisher/Word etc) it should be there!!

I hope this helps and isn't too convoluted of a way to get the font, it's the only way I know how and I've downloaded many fonts in the process of making my monogram and invitations. It's worked every time for me!

Good luck :)
Julie

thanks for the instructions, after downloading, I couldn't figure out how to import the fonts. I'm definitely not the computer savvy type

Thanks for the instructions, might help I needed to export to c:/windows/fonts and it seemed to work. If you follow the instructions above on find all the fonts you already have on your computer, then right click on one of them it will give you the location to export to on your computer.

Thanks

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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.
