I just placed an order from Oriental Trading.  I sucked it up and paid for shipping, my order came to $103 before taxes and shipping was $27.

Hey amjohnson,

Yes, I used vistaprint business cards for the luggage tags.  I had to cut off a little sliver off the edge to make them fit into my plastic tag holders (which I got at walmart btw 10 for 1.99)

 

I also struggled with what to put on the back, I decided just to make them the same on both sides, rather than have a decoration or monogram on one side.  You could order another box of cards in a different design and then glue them together, but I just didnt want to waste so many cards, and plus I thought that way the address is on both sides and visible from whichever direction! 

 

Also I used white 3mm ribbon, which I got in a discount bin a while back at fabricland. 

 

In the end I'm happy with them, and the whole project cost about $13.00 for 40 - I may make more later depending on numbers, but I will need to buy some more plastic holders :)

Also, at dollarama I found these paper lantern Garlands for $2 each.  they are 10 feet long, and came in blue/green (which work perfect for me) and orange/pink.  I only bought 2 at first because i was afraid they would look bad when I opened them.  However I opened them today and they are quite nicely put together!  I think I will go grab a few more to decorate the boat with for our reception!   I have already bought 6 white round lanterns (martha stewart, from walmart) but i think I will get a few more white ones and that will be it.  Now to figure out how to make those little light thingamabobbers with the batteries. :)

Also, a comment about the posts and people asking for templates.  I completely agree, that those who do not participate and just come to pilfer free templates are a little frustrating.  I myself am not very good at using publisher or other design programs so it would literally take me HOURS if I tried to design a welcome brochure for example.  I can not WAIT to get to 150 posts, but I avoid wasteful posts as well...because now I feel like I truly am participating and truthfully I cant wait to check BDW to see if I have any messages or if my favorite threads have been updated.

 

Also, I am curious to know what your fav threads are?  Some of the ones I find myself in the most are:

 

-this one (lol)

- Canadian girls OOT thread

-Post your ETSY finds thread

-post your shoes

-post your bouquet/bouquet inspiration

-the ENTIRE DIY forum :)

Hi Coco,

Although Dreams Tulum is further from the airport, we liked how it was in a less populated area...no other resorts share the beach!! Looking at the reviews and photos, we thought the feel of the resort matched what we wanted the most. Both are close to Golf courses which was a must as my FI is from Scotland and his family is coming for two weeks to make it worthwhile and they love to golf! I hope that helps! Read reviews and go with what both of you is the right fit for you. My dad just went on his honeymoon to Dreams Puerto Aventuras and loved it so I don't think you can go wrong with either resort. Dreams resorts have a good reputation!

It's random but I have seen it for sale at pet stores, I used to buy it to put in my fish tank. They normally have all sorts of colours too! I would try petsmart or one of the bigger ones.

I'm thinking about adding it to my DIY Shell Bouts, that is if I can find any :)

Hi,

I like your lanterns, I did see them...sadly they don't come in my colors, turquoise and red. I did find some turquoise decorations at the party packagers store and got a few turquoise battery lanterns at dollarama. I am making my own Martha Stewart Paper Puffs...They are great to hang from ceiling or go down the aisle...not sure what I am doing down the aisle. I am leaning toward getting fake turquoise petals for each side down aisle. Honestly, I don't want to add anything into my suitcase!!! Getting a little worried.;)

I really like your luggage tags! I picked up the plastic tag holders from walmart a few weeks ago, you can't beat that price! I am just debating if I want to make my own business cards or make some on VP. I got my ribbon at Micheal's in the dollar bin!

 

I also went to place an order at oriental trading but was put off with the shipping and duty. I might just suck it up and put the order in cause there is some things that I really want lol

I think I might just need to figure out the per item cost.  As I was roaming around dollarama at lunch stewing about whether I should have just sucked it up and paid the shipping, I started thinking about the number of items I was ordering, ie. 12 lanterns for 14 bucks is pretty cheap considering I paid 10 dollars for 3 at walmart....

 

Maybe I should order everything at once, so I only have to pay the shipping once...

 

ps. today at dollarama I got the CUTEST stone and glass beads.  I had been thinking about making barefoot jewellery for my bridesmaids and I, but thought I had nixed it from the list.  It seemed like really fussy work and I have already bought A LOT of things for my girls.  But.... then I saw the beads and I couldn't resist.  (you know the drill! can't say no!)

Going to take them with me up to MIL's cottage this weekend and maybe my 11 year old neice and her friend can help me with the beading.  Will post pics of how it goes!

    • When brides takes off her wedding dress and begins her marriage life,the first problem after wedding is to modify her name. You have a marriage license with your new last name, doesn't mean you've officially changed your name. Which aspects should be paid attention to to change the surname?
      1. Get your marriage license.
      Before you can change your name, you'll need the original (or certified) marriage license with the raised seal. Call the clerk's office where your license was filed to get copies if one wasn't automatically sent to you. 2. Change your Social Security card.
      Visit the Social Security Administration's website and fill out the application for a new Social Security card. You'll keep the same number—just your name will be different. Mail in your application to the local Social Security Administration office. You should get your new card within 10 business days. 3. Change your license at the DMV.
      Take a trip to the local Department of Motor Vehicles office to get a new license with your new last name. Bring every form of identification you can get your hands on—your old license, your certified marriage certificate and, most importantly, your new Social Security card. 4. Change your bank accounts.
      This one's a biggie, especially if you're setting up a joint bank account, or if you have one already set up. The fastest way to change your name at your bank is to go into a branch location, bringing your new driver's license and your marriage certificate. You should request new checks and debit and credit cards on top of changing the name attached to your accounts. Something to note: You might get hit with fees for requesting a new debit card. 5. Fill in the blanks
      Once you have a social security card and driver's license in your married name, other changes should be fairly easy. Some places only require a phone call; others may ask for a copy of your marriage certificate or social security card. Be sure to notify: -Employers/payroll
      -Post office
      -Electric and other utility companies
      -Credit card companies
      -Schools and alumni associations
      -Landlord or mortgage company
      -Insurance companies (auto, home, life)
      -Doctors' offices
      -Voter registration office
      -Investment account providers
      -Your attorney (to update legal documents, including your will)
      -Passport office
      -Airlines (to transfer over your miles)

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win.
