        So I went to michaels today to try and find some ribbon for my belly bands... For lace all they had was about 5ins wide white lace :( too think and too white and i think cutting it done the middle would look bad because the ends were finnished. As far as ribbon goes they only had 1 ribbon that i liked that was in my color. All the other purples were too bright or light.. Not the deep dark eggplant. So the one ribbon i like is also the ribbon ive been using for my DIY barefoot sandals so i does work but i think its too thin to use just that arouynd the outside if the invite... now to find another plan

            what's everyone doing for guests who are single but will know people at the wedding? Do I give them an invitation addressed "and guest"? I'm torn, I want them to be able to bring someone if they are seriously dating someone at the time, but also don't want a bunch of randoms I don't know at the wedding. The extra cost comes into play too if we go over our #s because it will be like 11 extra people if they all come and bring guests....Let me know what everyone ended up doing!

              That's a tough one in your case.  We are allowing singletons to bring a guest if they chose but there's actually only one person on the list that has told us they will definitely bring a guest who is a girlfriend of hers because she is not seeing anyone and she doesn't really know anyone else that's going and doesn't want to go alone which I completely understand.  Everyone else knows each other and if they even come won't bring someone.  But be prepared if you tell these people they can't bring someone, they may not come at all.  It's definitely a gamble.

                 Do yall have a Hobby Lobby? I have seen a TON of lace in the ribbon section. Ivory, Cream white and in a variety of sizes.. :o)

                 

                Here is a link to what they have online.. Usually more items are in store though.  http://shop.hobbylob...r=White&F_ALL=Y

                  My case... I am staying at an All-Inclusive resort and don't expect a tremendous amount of guests, so the non-married friends and family I wrote Mr. XXX and Guest or Ms. XXX and Guest.  If we were having to pay per person for our wedding dinner from 1-XX, it would probably be a different case.

                   

                  I know some girls have told single guests to room with other guests if they want but they really didn't have it in the budget to give a +1 to everyone and they didn't feel it was right to pick and chose who could and couldn't, so rather than hurting anyones feelings they really wanted to keep their wedding to close friends and family.

                    We are addressing the invitations to the individual person, but we are completely open to having them bring a guest.  We figure they are coming so far, why not let them have someone special with them, even if it is just a friend of theirs.
