I LOVE THIS IDEA!!!  I actually did this for my sisters as a xmas gift with pictures of our Sister trip to Europe.  LOVE it for the wedding too!  I was going to ask everyone to send me 5 of their most favoriate pictures of the week then create a CD for everyone as a Thank You!  I may just do the photo album instead!  :-)

I just made these for my guests as well! I have not received them yet, but I am very excited to give it to them!

I ended up getting the minis, they went on sale for .75 again. SO I just had to get them.

The shipping is what killed me though. It was $58!!!!

So it is best to wait for a deal if you live in Canada for sure :)

A long time ago I started a thread asking for opinions on a crazy idea I had for thank you cards (I get these crazy ideas in my head all the time:)  At the time I wanted to create a mini magazine. Here's my original thread: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/60575/is-this-a-crazy-idea-pls-give-your-honest-opinion Well, I wanted to give you guys an update because the idea evolved into something different but really awesome and unique.  I realized that doing a magazine would be more work, more expensive and not very durable.  So instead I decided to do a mini photo book.  The front cover had one of our Trash the dress pictures and it simply said "Thank You...." On the inside I told a story through pictures of the whole wedding week.  I started with pics of the welcome cocktails, then moved on to the rehearsal dinner, next I had pics of the ceremony, then the reception and finally ended with a few pics of our trash the dress.  On each page, I had really short one liners thanking guests for different things.  So for example, Page 1 said "Thanks for traveling the distance...", page 2 "thanks for the great memories", page 3 "thanks for the laughter"... Page 4 "thanks for being there in our most special moment" etc... Basically almost every page thanked them for something.   The front inside cover was a blank page so I wrote a personalized hand written thank you to each guest on that page.  I sent them out already and EVERYONE was absolutely amazed by them.  Every single guest called me and the first word out of their mouths was "WOW".  Then every single one of them went on to Thank me for the thank you cards :) lol...when was the last time you saw that happen? It was really funny to hear people saying that.  It's been about 7 months since I sent them and everytime I visit someone I see the booklets sitting right there on their coffee table or somewhere else you can see right away.  Everyone showed it off to their friends and co-workers.  Below are some pics of the book.  thank you cover.jpg thank you rehearsal.jpg thank you 2.jpg thank you 3.jpg thank you 4.jpg thank you 7.jpg thank you last.jpg I did these through Mypublisher.com which is super, super easy to use!   All you do is drag and drop your pictures where you want them.  The print quality was absolutely AMAZING and stunning!  The colors were vibrant, the pages were premium and high quality.  It looked really professional.  A lot of people thought I got these as part of my photographer package.  I LOVE mypublisher.com (you would think I'm a spokesperson for them :)  Each book is small - the size is 5.75 x 7.75 (if you want a visual, just take a piece of paper and fold it in half - it's about that size). The cost for a booklet with 20 pages is $9.99 BUT they have these great promotions all the time so you can get a really good discount.  In my case, I took advantage of a buy one, get one free promotion so each book came out to less than $5.  I sent one to each couple.  If you think that's too much money, they have a new even smaller booklet now which is only $2.49.  This is something you can only pull off with a DW because it's less people so you can include pictures of everyone in the book AND you won't break the bank sending one to everyone.  Hope this inspires someone to do something different.  I wanted to really find a way to thank my guests in a unique way because not only did they take their personal time and money to travel far, they also gave us the best gift of all by giving us a week that we will never forget for the rest of our lives.  It was worth the $100 bucks or so I spent on them. 
What a great photo book

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • 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?
