    I have to first start by saying thanks to all you ladies for being sooo helpful! My wedding isn't until next year but I will be off from my job for the next 6 weeks and wanted to get as much as possible done! I have to admit that I was skeptical at first about the quality of the products but after seeing the pics of everyone's things and hearing the feedback, I figure......"thousands of brides can't be wrong, can they?" Also, if you order their "wedding Sample Kit" it arrives to you pretty quickly and you will get a sample of everything and you can judge the quality for yourself. The kit is free. I don't think I can post pictures because I don't have enough posts (someone let me know if it is different) yet but here is what I received in my first batch of things: 30 STD magnets - my colors are red, orange, and yellow (sunset colors) so I uploaded a picture of a beautiful sunset , and included our pics on it to make the STD. 100 postcards - I uploaded yet another picture of a sunset. It really just looks the same sunset from a different angle. On the front of the card I put "SEE YOU IN PARADISE!" On the back of the card I put the wedding location, all the booking information, a tentative itinerary, as well as our wedding website and the site of the resort. My wedding will be immediate family only and because I know my family, I felt the need to put as much information early on as possible. I used yet another sunset picture (it was already included in vistaprint's patterns) for my return labels. My parents were here this weekend to assist after my surgery and my FI asked my dad for my hand in marriage! I already ordered the pre-travel brochures as well. I have started ordering bags on separates orders and I have been ordering hats as well. (each male will have a hat in their bag whereas each female guest will have a sarong, among other things). The bags are of really good quality. I have also ordered personalized stationary for both my maid and matron of honor. They are both my younger sisters and I chose the themes based on their likes. (personalized pen, sticky notes, note cards and note pads). I initially wasn't going to order invitations since my STD package included everything but I saw a pattern vistaprint had that mimicked my wedding colors perfectly! So far the first few things have come in already and I am more than pleased with everything. If I am able to post pictures of these things I will gladly do so.....(can anyone tell me where to look to see if I can?)

      You can post pictures, regardless of post count.  How you post them will determine if you can see them yourself.  If you just click the Insert Image button, you shouldn't have a problem....

       

      Outside of that, did you order your totes from VistaPrint? I am on the border on those.

        Yayyyy! I will get those pics posted soon! I did order the totes from vistaprint, however, after purchasing the first two totes, I found another pattern on vistaprint that I liked much better so I started ordering the totes with that particular pattern on them. For my two attendants, I made sure the logo on their tote coincided with the stationary I purchased for them. I consider myself to be a verrrry discerning customer and can be a bit picky at times so I was almost expecting myself not to really like these totes but it turns out that they will work just fine for what I need them for. I really think your guests will just be surprised that you thought enough at all to include things in the bag that they can actually use on their trip; they may not even scrutinize the bag that closely...lol I'll be back with those pictures.

          I just found Joann's OOT bags and she ordered her bags from VistaPrint, so I think I am going to go ahead and shoot for it.  Have to wait for them to mark my shirts back down.  Had them at 50% off, now they are regular price....I snoozed now I have to wait.

            Regarding the shirts.....there is a link I bookmarked on my iPad where someone created a website on how to get literally everything you want/need for your wedding for free from vistaprint. She has links to all the free things and she even has a link to a free long sleeve t-shirt as well. (when I get back on the iPad, I will post that link)

             

            I'm going back to my original post to see if I can post my pics now.

                Go to vistaprint-goddess.weekly.com/Index.html This is the website i was referring to where the bride has all these great links. Go to the link that says "sample email". When you get to that page, you will also see a separate link that will lead you to free t-shirts as well as long sleeve shirts. I hope that helps!!

                      Thanks! I plan to continue to use vistaprint well after this wedding. I just started a business earlier this year and had been using Overnight prints for my marketing material but I will definitely be using vistaprint to save some money from now on!
