April 2011 Brides

Recommended Posts

Hello Gals,

I haven't been on here in quite a while so I guess it's time to start reading this thread now and get to work on a few things.   I'm an April 16th  RIU Ocho Rios bride.  Can't wait to filter through all of these posts.  I've got to get my invitations printed and mailed out in January for both the wedding and the AHR on April 30th.

We always get screwed with shipping lol Except yesterday I went vista print crazy again and ordered my brochures(50), door hangers(50), photo share magnets(25), a banner, a hat, pens(5 with logo), a notebook with our pictures, sticky notes with our logo, a photo flip book, adheasive grommets for the banner, oversized postcards for sudoku games(50 front and back), a small tote with our logo and our luggage tags (250 business cards front and back) for 59$ taxes in with free shipping cause my order pre tax was over 50$. So happy about that cause I wanted to get my brochure, luggage tags, can't wait to see you small magnets and calender magnets out to my guest before the end of January. A few more off that HUGE list of to do's!

I have my grandmother and a gilfriend in Tampa Florida that are coming but with shoes I would rather try them on. If I don't find anything local I will just have to chance it!

 

 Door hangers!! Awesome!! How did you design those?

 

I used the rack cards, left enough room for the circle to be cut out and put my logo on the bottom and in the middle wrote " No Molestar Por Favor, Please do not disturb" "Unless you have a yummy beverage in hand!" on one side and on the other side our logo at the bottom and in the middle I wrote " Come find us! We are out and about enjoying paradise!" I just used a white background and added color to the front with the letters and the logo, on the back I kept it in grayscale to save some money! I will post pics of everything when I get it in 14 days or so.

 

lisa, this may be a silly question, but how do you plan to cut the circles out of the rack cards to make them door hangers.  I too ordered rack cards (just found out my whole order shipped today--even though I placed two separate orders a couple days apart--soo excited!) with the intention of doing door hangers but have no idea how to make it look good. BTW, wish I read your post before I ordered, I loved what you wrote on the back side, wish I did back side :(

 Our AHR is towards the end of July, just under 3 months after our wedding in Mexico.  My plan is to get with my photographer before our trip down to Mexico and let her know exactly what I want to do with our invitations for our AHR, so she can work on it once she gets back from Mexico (she is staying two nights - we are staying 7).  This way, I can get the invites out shortly after we return home at the beginning of May. 

 

For our invitations to the AHR, I am copying a friend who got married this past March, in Mexico.  What they did was take a picture that their photographer took, and make it as their invitation.  On the front side, it was the glossy photo and on the back side it was a lightened version, with the wording for the invitation.  I absolutely love the idea!

    • 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.
