    its all good starfish0512...

     

    if you're using powerpoint for your stuff, you can change the color of the images...i can help...send me a PM..and i'd be happy to discuss offline...

     

    if you're on gmail, we could even chat about it. 

    Sorry to hjack your thread R!!!

     

    @ Tori - My biggest problem are the images I purchased to use for the invites.  Without having photoshop or being a skilled graphic designer (although I should have explored that option in college), I am left to match the font color to the image color.  It's not terrible as I've found paper from papersource that matches it spot on but it's not perfect (in my mind) and I think we all know how that feels...  


    Thanks for the advice!!! I still may bring it to a printer - not staples and see if they can do anything different.

        ok, ladies...

         

        i need some help...i'm going back and forth about my program..should i go the passport route or should i do something a bit more traditional...

         

        plus the passport is ALOT of work..initially i was going to do a single 8.5 x 11.5 sheet of paper doublesided but then i wasn't really 'in love' with the concept..plus i feel like its so 'destination wedding' and i didn't want to keep doing the 'norm'...so here's a mockup of a program, i'm thinking i may incorporate into my stationery suite.

         

        i need ya'lls opinion...passport program or more 'traditional' program?

         

        program mockup.PNG

         

        please share your thoughts, suggestions, recommendations, etc..i could really use the help...

         

        oh and here's another 'taste' at what's included w/my stationery suite...hope ya'll like it.

        ok..i'm headed back to finish up some DIY projects....

         

        as always, until next time, happy planning!!

         

        R~

          I personally like the more traditional route for the program, I am thinking passports for the "welcome" booklet with all the info in it but again like you said it is a TON of work!

           

          You do have to keep reminding yourself that your guests are not on BDW all the time like we are so they probably haven't seen "faux" passports used for anything before and they will likely find it VERY unique... so saying that... maybe passports lol I am no help at all!!!!

           

          Will you be doing fans at the ceremony?!

            thanks..tori...

             

            yes, you confused me even more...lol!  uhm, i love the whole passport idea, i just don't know if i'm motivated enough for them right now...

             

            i'll sleep on it and give it a go again tomorrow.

              I had the same feeling as you mrstgun,

               

              I loved the idea of passport invitations. Other than the fact that I have gotten the feeling that they are so over done, I just new someone would have thought that I found their passport and mailed it to them. LOL.

               

              Tory makes a good point about them just seeming over done to us because we are on BDW 24-7. So I'm going to go ahead with my plan to use them for the itinerary I'm putting in the OOT bags.  

               

              The other thing I will say is that nothing you do looks trite. You manage to put a new spin on every project. I'm so glad you haven't gone cold turkey on us.

                  I love your door hangers- I'd already done a trial run of my own but your wording is miles better. Hope you don't mind me pinching it!

                   

                  Also, I made a good start on my boarding passes yesterday and FI and I love them! Thanks soooo much for the template! Think I'm going to use the same theme for my pre-departure booklet too (though may go for passports instead), so a massive THANK YOU! 

                  Re: the programmes, are you using the passport anywhere else? Maybe you could go the traditional route but give it a bit of a twist? I'm not sure what though. I'm a bit stuck on my programs too... I haven't found anything yet that I really LOVE. Will let you know if I do lol.

                    I say traditional. I agree with Tori that I like the passports as the STD or maybe something in the OOT bags, but ceremony should be traditional. I have seen looooots of passport stuff lately too which makes me want to stray away from it. :)

                      i really like the more traditional way for the programs....i think you have done so much DIY  stuff i think doing something that is a little easier (although i know your going to add your own DIVA touch to it) lol  

                       

                      Hope this helps hun.
