Looking for that little extra spice.  It may be just fine, yet I think that it is missing something.  Since talking 'wedding' to my husband is a foreign language, figured I'd come to the one place where I know that there are many others who speak the same language, so here goes.

 

I posted these invites possibly a week or so ago.  I was able to print them all out and now I am in the cutting and gluing phases.  Right now I am working on the post wedding lunch, before we leave the resort and it just doesn't have that spice.

 

The first round, this is how they looked:

I figured how to do the pretty little ribbon flower with a brad at the center that attached the two.  Now, for some reason I just can't seem to recreate that little flower and at the same time, I just don't think it works well.  So here is the invite without the embellishment:

Sorry, it's sideways.  Of course when I ask the 'other' he says it looks fine, yet it is missing that certain je nais se pas...

 

 

HELP!!!!

Not really a fan of the ribbon flower either, but maybe if you got an airplane 3D embellishment or a small seashell and put it on the same spot it would give itt hat pizazz.  Hope that helps....good luck!

 

PS I think they look fine plain also....haahah

If you want something extra in that corner without the flower, what about a small rhinestone sticker? It could be anything, even a simple dot. That would add some bling and draw the eye there without being too much.

 

Another idea is to do a simple bow across the top of the invite.

I don't know how to do a bow, that's why I tried the ribbon rose.  As you can see, that was a one time success. & I am afraid to put something in that corner that may knock of the balance because the sun pic.  Maybe I am being a bit too critical *shrugs, I do that sometimes.

I hit reply too quick...

If the bow is too much, since it's not the "wedding" invitation, it would be just fine with out anything else.  Jut cut the top border to be equal in size to the other borders.

So easy fix is if I get rid of the extra space, there may be no need for anything extra.  Ha ha, by golly I think she has it, LOL

 

But iwill still look at the youtube video, I WANT to learn how to do bows.

Yes, I am starting to believe that my eyes are indeed just adding things that have no place.  I am going to go with another bride's suggestion and just make all the borders the same and then there will be no need for anything extra.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
