      Since some guests are anglophones, some are francophones, every part needs to be bilingual.

      I added a page with activities in PDC with pictograms!!

      As with all the rest of your things... your invites look awesome! and bilingual! now you have to add a Spanish dictionary for the important words!! PICANTE-spicy; cerveza-beer, please- per favor and most important NO GRACIAS-NO THANK YOU. LOL

        LOL! Nan..That is a great idea! Except, my FI's family members are spaniard descendants, so they do speak Spanish.  On my side, me and my siblings when thru high school with international program, so we all took basic Spanish.  French and Spanish are from the same Latin root, so most of the Francophones can decode Spanish.

            thx Nicola

            it is a lot of work and hours of photoshop, but it is worth the effort, since they are so unique.

            The pic at the background of the boarding pass was taken on a beach at Isla Mujeres after my swim with the whale shark trip.

              Your wedding is going to be really "international". My wedding guests are also from different parts of the world, and now, looking at your invites I´m thinking about making a bilingual version.  Someone  in the May thread asked about  how much time in advance  she should  have her    dress in to be altered. I don´t know. I´m thinking that if I get really stressed I might lose some weight. When are you having yours altered?

                I never did STD's. I did make my own invites but i need to hunt for the pix i have as they were dead easy to find until this site changed a few months back.... I will go hunt. They were very basic but did the trick.... :-) x

                    Nicola,

                    They are super cute! I find DIY invites are really unique and present the character of the couple pretty well.

                     

                    Nan,

                    I sent out my invites like 7 months in advanced, because the hotel that I picked usually get sold out 3 months in advanced.  Plus, apparently the 1st week of July is a high season for honeymooners.  Since I got engaged in Nov 2009, and told everyone that I want a DW in PDC since my engagement...everyone had sufficient time to save up.

                    As for alteration, I don't think I will need it, since I am already thin to the bones, and my dresses are custom made.  If I loss weight, I will just add a corset to beef me up! lol

                    OK, you can say I may gain weight, but since I don't like to eat rice, bread, pasta..cereals and most of the fruits since I was a kid (oh yes, I am a picky eater),...without white carbs and fruits, it is very hard to gain weight. I already cut my daily HagenDaz...so it is pretty hard for me to gain weight.

                      Lucky you! Cuting out on HagenDaz! That is what I call will power! My FI eats a whole bowl of Dulce de leche every night and I take bites....I ´ve told him to watch out or his Shirt won´t fit next May!!

                       

                      Nicola:

                       

                      I think I rememer seeing these in one of the threads here! They are beautiful. Mine are not ready yet.
