I saw this idea on The Knot and thought it was really cute...and especially practical since we are not doing assigned seating.  At the entrance to the reception would be a bulletin board with all the charms hanging on thumbtacks.  I did a search and found some instructions on Not Martha and bought the supplies at Michael's.




So far this is just a prototype so I'm looking for feedback.  I think I need to reduce the number of beads - it looks a little crowded.  And I didn't realize it, but the rings were a package of assorted sizes so I'll need to adjust some of those.  For now, I just printed the name tags on extra card stock from my STDs.  Any other ideas on what to use?

I had actually thought of doing these but I'm still undecided since I already have escort cards. Here are a few inspiration pics I had gathered when I was contemplating doing them. These pics are from a few etsy vendors whose ideas I really liked. I was going to do the starfish one because you can buy the starfish charms from Oriental Trading for really cheap. (I think one dozen in a bag $6.99) Believe it or not I actually saw the love pendants at Michael's in the bridal section there were like 24 in a pack for $5.99

I actually saw those love charms at Michael's and wanted to use them but didn't know how.  I think there wouldn't be enough bead colors for everyone at our wedding so really wanted to do names.  I like the last pic with all the names spelled out in beads.  I'll have to check those out.

I just found these ones with names...scroll down just past the label


She used Shrinky Dink Paper? I have never heard of it.  I looked it up and you print on it with an ink jet printer, put it in the oven and it shrinks and turns into hard plastic.... ummm... COOL! 


SKP1 maybe this would work for you?  Just print a bit bigger, since they already look great and let them shrink down?  I think using card stock, if they get wet they will be ruined, which would be a shame, since you took the time to make them.


I think I might try this.  If it works maybe I'll make some extra ones to put at the tables as favors.  I saw some that were the word Party in different languages that I've been trying to figure out how to work in....

Thank you PaperBagPrincess - I'm going to look for the shrinky dink paper.  I remember these as a kid but had no idea you could do personal projects!  I'll have to get a larger circle punch but that's no big deal and worth it to make these more permanent.


As for your idea of table favors and "party" in different languages, I found a list on-line of "cheers!" in different languages - that might be cool too since they are drink tags.  I was searching because I'm doing cocktail stirrers that have L'chaim" on one side and "Salute" on the other - we're Jewish and Italian and thought that would be a cute way to incorporate both.  While looking for how to spell each one, I found a list of about 10 other languages.  The ideas are endless!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
