I just wanted to share my great experiece with Tami's Place. (she also has items on ebay, but order through her site for free shipping)

http://www.tamisplace.com/index.html

 

I had a question about colors to use on my cake topper and within an hour Tami emailed me photos of the actual crystals next to each other.

I placed my order on Friday afternoon and Monday when I came home, the package was already here! They came from Florida and were overnighted on Saturday. Wow!!

 

The crystals are just beautiful! Here's what I ordered:

 

2 pkgs of 16ss Aqua

1 pkg of 12ss Golden Shadow

1 pkg 16ss Light Sapphire

 

1 Kit (includes glue, cupped tweezers, mat to work on, polishing cloth, and beading tweezer for extra glue removal).

 

I'm nervous about this project because the crystals are really small!! but I got the sizes from a knottie bio (that's how I found this vendor too). I don't love the aqua with the lt. sapphire so I'll probably use the sapphire for the bottom of my shoes or on my BMs flip flops.

 

I'll be sure to document my process under this thread.

If anyone has done this before, your suggestions/tips are greatly welcomed!!

 

I plan on getting some syringes (needles removed) to use with the glue because the dots have to be so small and of course I'll need to wait for my cake topper to arrive!

 

Cake Topper: I ordered the 1/8" acrylic starfish from weddingcuts.com.

I bought mirrored glass cake toppers, our initials and our new last name initial, and I added crystals to them to give them some bling! I just used a glue gun, but it was hard because you couldn't get too much glue on them and you had to stick them really fast before the glue dried, and they were so little it was hard to hold them and then flip them quickly to stick them. But all in all I think the cake toppers came out pretty good, I have a couple of tiny stray glue strands, but I don't think anyone is going to be up close examining them, lol! Just take your time doing it, I love that starfish cake topper!

 

I need to take pics of all of my stuff, so I'll post pics of mine when I do that.

Hi Girls,

Wanted to show you the final product.. it took me 3 hours if you can believe that!!

 

I bought additional colors after seeing the Lt. Saphire and Aqua together. The Saphire was a much darker blue so I ended up not using them.

 

I used

1 pkg of 16ss Aqua

1 pkg of 12ss Golden Shadow

1 pkg of 16ss Crystal Clear

1 pkg of 122ss Aqua AB

 

I still have a ton of crystals left so I'll need to think of more projects. I absolutely LOVE the final product!!! The pictures don't do it justice.

I added crystals to the back of my bridesmaid's havaianas. I was going to do the straps, but now I understand why they charge so much for those!!

    • 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?
