That looks amazing!!  You did a professional job on yours.  Perhaps there's another calling for you after your wedding.  Thanks for sharing your process.  Did you come across any problems or kinks with the letterpress?

Hi Sarah!


Those looks AMAZING!  You mentioned the regular price would have been $1200+, did you end up tallying how much you actually spent by doing it yourself?  Thnx!

Thank you so much! Letterpress is a relief printing technique using a press which raised the surface of the type. I checked the prices at couple printing shops and 25 sets of invites (4 cards each set) it's going to cost me more then $1200.00. I didn't want to spent that much on the invites so I went DIY way.
I follow a tutorial from here http://www.boxcarpress.com/us/blog/2009/11/ and ordered a plate from them by sending in my design.

I brought the press and inks from amazon  http://www.amazon.com/Lifestyle-Crafts-Letterpress-Combo-Epic/dp/B002WZLI7U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1335498620&sr=8-1

There's two place I got the rhinestone from:
http://www.haitrim.com/ ($3.00 each)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005ZA882C/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00 ($11.99 for 12)

I hope this help. :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
