Wow! For someone who says she's not a DIY, you have done an outstanding job. Everything looked so professional, well thought out and elegant! This is a wonderful planning thread for new brides to be. It will certainly be an inspiration I hope the wedding was everything of your dreams! And look forward to stumbling across your pro photos once you post them.

Congrats!

    murmel,

     

    You are far too kind!  It is true, I WAS a "find the best price and the best designer, and I'll pay for it" type of gal.  That was so before this site along with the FAB ladies that post and share, Martha Stewart, & Michaels

If not try to look for an anchor with a little more umph so to speak...  That will make your label stand out. 

     

    It wouldn't hurt to try clear labels but look at the cost, as labels can run a little pricey (shhh I got mine from work) but the shrink wrap on ebay ran about $3.50 or $5 for 50

    Thanks, Mrs Wright!  -

     

    Yes, I am using this anchor throughout a lot of my projects.  I ended up making it bigger & stretching it out a bit.  I was hoping to make it a little more personalized by adding our names somewhere, I am not that good with designing!  I am okay with the end result.  I've personalized many other things.

     

    I went and bought the clear labels and they work SO MUCH BETTER!!!!  I got them cheap at Walmart.  I then took your advice and got the shrink wrap seals.   I got 100 for $6.00 with S&H.  I did not want the ink to smudge on the label.  Especially if using them on the beach or by the pool with wet/suntan lotion hands!!  I only tested one shrink-wrap so far - AMAZING!  Thanks so much for the tip.

     

    Here are some updated pics.  These are without the shrink wrap.  I also included a pic of my anchor I am using in my projects - when it's bigger you can see the detail.

     



    I think these look cool! I don't know what I am doing wrong! I've tried this size label and it is too big for my regular sized chapstick & it overlaps. I keep seeing everyone say to cut it, but how do you know where to put your design on the label? I am so challenged when it comes to DIY but I really want to change that during this planning process! Do you think you can email me a template of how you are doing yours? I'm trying to get my post count up and I can't access any of the templates yet! :-/

    Thank you Shannonmarie!  You are sweet.  Was Mrs. Wright able to help you on this?


    Blissfully married since April 2, 2013.

      You are more than welcome!

       

      Love love love what you did with the chap sticks, they look amazing and with you making the anchor bigger and stretching it out it gives it that pop.  I see the detail as well!  Great job. 

       

      Gotta love shrink wrap huh ;-)

          Thank you so very much!  Definitely stay ahead of the curve but before you start gathering TONS of stuff, try to get an idea of what you and your FI want YOUR day to be!  Colors, theme, etc.. once you have that in mind... everything else will become easier.

           

          I will send the template over.

           

          Happy Planning

              Thank you!  We truly had the wedding of our dreams.  You can truly use whatever chap stick you like.  We had a few people with allergies so that's what lead me on a hunt for natural chap stick.

                Thanks for the tip on the shrinkwrap for the chapsticks!  I never would have thought to look for those.  Were you able to use a hairdryer to apply them or did you have to use a heatgun?
