So this is my first thread!!! I just joined a few days ago and have been addicted to this site!!! There's so many great things to learn from on here. I just got engaged July 4th and me and my FI are planning to getting married July/2013 - Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Since I have almost 2 years to plan I've decided to look into things now and start on little stuff like my monogram! I will be sending STD's early next year and I want to have my monogram ready. I looked into Creative Montage as many brides have used them before on BDW. They do beautiful work but when I went onto their website I noticed they are not accepting any new custom orders (they seemed a little pricey anyway- starting price was $75.00). So I thought maybe I can do it myself? I looked at a few videos online to learn and on one video a girl spoke about www.elance.com! With this website you can post the job you want and professional contractors bid on it. I posted my job last night and have gotten 4 bids on it. (I have one person who already sent me a few great mock monograms! FOR FREE) He's willing to do the job for $45 (which is wayyyy better than Creative Montage). I thought this info was great to share. I hope everyone continues share their journey as we all plan our beautiful days!
