AcutieRN def let me know if you can get the oceanfront because I would def LOVE that!! As for a at home reception, Yes I think we are going to plan one here in Houston and one in Florida actually because I am from Houston and he is from Florida.. We haven't actually started planning for it or even thinking about it honestly but I will let you ladies know when we figure it out :)

We're definitely doing an AHR either a backyard barbecue if our new built home would be ready by May or a brunch a week or two later after we get back home from DR. I think my Future-in-laws wants to take on the expenses so it would depend on them what they want to do for it, we got lucky on that part! LOL. One less expense I have to worry about!

 

Ladies just wnt to bring up the pashminas again, if any of you are interested on getting in on my bulk order please let me know!

Great ideas for AHR! We live on a lake, so it will be awesome to do it here. Also, his mom may help pay too-that does always help! 

 

JB-thanks for the offer on the pashminas, but since I am not having attendants I will pass on them.  Thanks though!

 

So, my STD's are FINALLY done! Wow, they turned out just like I hoped, but they really did take a lot of time.  I did them myself and it may have gone faster if I would have enlisted some girls to help out.  My wedding is so small, I figured I could do it quickly. I was wrong, ha ha! Lots of work but I think they will be worth it.  Here they are, sorry if they are huge.IMG_2051.JPGIMG_2055.JPGIMG_2065.JPG

Hi there guys! I'm looking here for a Feb 2012 wedding and would love to see what ever pics you have. But my real question is - what travel agents have you used to set this up? And were they able to get really good deals?

AcutieRN those are AWESOME!!! Did you cute the envolopes yourself, or did you use a templete? Also how did you do the Wrap with your monogram on it?? Did you get it printed and you cute it out??

 

Again you did an awesome job!!!

DeeSanders:Thanks so much! I really do love them, and I think I did as good of a job as I could.  The best part is I priced them out on Etsy and it looked like they would be anywhere from $3.50-5.00 per one STD. I made mine for about $1.90 each!  And that is even a bit high because I added the cute palm tree brads and the extra rhinestone.

 

I made my own design for the pocket holder. I found the one on alyeebits to be a bit confusing.  I simply divided a regular sheet of paper into even thirds.  I had to play around with this for awhile to make it perfect but I found if I cut off a bit of paper it worked best. I divided each section into about 31/2 inches(I actually used a ruler and used the first tiny mark after the 3.5 inch mark, who knows what that equals ha ha). I cut off the remaining edge to make it all even. I then just cut a corner off of the outside at a diagonal. I just played around until I found what looked good. I then used this "triangle" as a template for each envelope so all of them would be uniform. I found the pocket holder to be the most challenging of everything. My advice is to use a good "boner" so you can get your creases pressed really well.  Also, to "glue" the pocket piece down I had a really hard time. I found everything was too thick to allow my STD's to slide into the pocket.  I tried glue dots, some wide double sided tape for scrapbooking, and hot glue. I couldn't get my STD inserted with any of those. I finally found some scrapbook double side tape squares that are pretty tiny and narrow. I would recommend the more narrow the better.  The wrap with the monogram was really easy. I just had three printed across the bottom of a piece of white paper at Kinko's.  I then cut them into vertical strips and just wrapped them around the envelope.  So easy and I really liked how this part turned out.  I would rec.  the Friskars rotary cutter, made things so much easier.  Also I would get a good corner punch so your fingers don't cramp up.  I tried a cheap one at first, it was awful.  Friskars makes a good one as well as creative memories does.  Hope this helps! It was fun to do, but I am glad they are done.  They are in the mail tomorrow!

acutie, awesome job with the STD's. it looks great! you're right about the cost, it definitely ends up a lot cheaper than having it made but the time you put into it does take a toll... i'm starting to work on my passport invites, i figured printing it just right front and back would be a bit tricky so getting a head start would be essential! i got some pearlized cardstock from joanne's on sale $12 for 100 sheets! i thought that was a good deal :)
