        Oh wow! What an amazing planning thread. Kudos on all the diy work. You are so lucky Gianinar got it right. My dress was a total failure. I absolutely love your BM's dresses, the way you customized your shoes, you are a very creative person. The only thing I did not like was the shells, but that's b/c I don't like shells. Period. Thanks for taking the time to show us.

          I'm a graphic designer so I made the bookmarks using Adobe Illustrator. I also have contacts in the print industry who were happy to print them, laminate them and cut them for me. But really anyone could make them!


          You could use Powerpoint or even Word. Just design the bookmarks in text boxes and leave the text box marked out so you know where to cut them out of the regular sized paper. Then you could print them on glossy cardstock, but I recommend having them printed at Office Depot on card stock and laminated there as well. Laminating them makes them look very professional and last longer. Then you (or office depot) can trim them using a paper cutter. I love this paper cutter http://fiskarspapercutter.com/ you can only do one page at a time, but its more accurate than the guillotine-type cutters.


          After they are cut out, I used a scrapbooking corner punch to round the corners, this is what I used: http://www.123stitch...?item=01-001448 Then I used a hole punch for the ribbon hole, tied some ribbon through it and voila!


          I get all my supplies at craft stores like Michaels.


          Happy Planning!

            Absolutely amazing!  I can't believe all the work you put into it.  I guess I'm a bit more selfish - the reason I really want to do a DW is to avoid having to plan and micromanage every detail.  You've done an amazing job here.  Your ring, dress and invites really stood out as my favourites.  Congrats, and can't wait to see the review thread - I'm just a few days away from booking my date at the same resort, I just need to get copies of our ID to send, and with being off work right now it's harder to find "facilites" to do that :)  take care, and Merry Christmas!
