I need a favor though. . . .  Could you all remind me next time I get married to just do paper STDs in regular envelopes - I can't deal with this again!!   LOL

 

I'll post pics of my packaging when I'm done... but first I need to go buy more tape *SIGH*

The lady at the PO said "wow these are really nicely packaged" 

 

I mentioned they were my STD and we had a fun little convo about what I made.

 

I told her my FI hates the address labels I made because the PO would hate them... she said they were cute!  Then put ugly stickers on the boxes... Glad I took a pic before I left!!  

 

Pics up next - one moment please : ) hahah

 

hahah you have way too much fun with the emoticons. i love it!

Here is the packaging for my STDs

The note that I included - it's double sided so each box got one card.

In the box they went. . .

Wrapped the boxes in bubble wrap

Then wrapped them in brown paper - last minute decided to stamp them with " <3 handle with care <3"  it looked better on the piece of paper I did it on first... the bubble wrap made it challangeing - but I went with it anyways.  I then used packing tape to tape every surface so that the paper wouldn't get torn in shipping.

 

700

 

Finally, I taped on the address labels : )

 

 

 

(btw -  the addresses on the labels I made up so I could post a picture on the internet - the info from my TA is correct if anyone has a need for one )

Yep! If they don't feel comfortable with computers, they can call.  I'm using this website/app that allows you to RSVP: I agree. I want to use online RSVP as well. I find that the mail back ones are so annoying. Most people don't use snail mail anymore . Besides think of the money you will save. !!!! I really want passport invites but we shall see. http://www.appycouple.com/
I though the same thing about lace until I found a very light laced dress. I feel in love immediately.  It looks great! LL LL
We already booked the wedding and the bride and groom's hotel through our TA. Most guests will be traveling from St. Louis and we already have a PIN # for a group discount. Bride and groom will be traveling from Oklahoma City and there are no charters from OKC so we just booked the room and will add air in Dec. when it becomes available in Dec. Guest's packages ( thru Apple vacations) are already available ( including air) according to our TA.
I'm using Patty at Wright Travel and my wedding isn't until Oct 2014. Yet she already got me rates, so no it's not too early
HAha well you're one of the few!!!     I don't know why people do this with Kimberly - names like Jessica and Jennifer are the same type of name and I never hear people automatically call them Jess and Jen ....  I just like Kimberly better - why is that so hard doh.gif  HAHA
Too funny! If we were closer I'd start doing it just to annoy you. Lol. Maybe in a month or two. Hahaha
I love non-white dresses! I'm leaning towards ivory but I've seen some champage and blush pink dresses that are cute. 
I'm dead set against wearing white. I loooove the champagne look for me, plus people would expect me to not be traditional. Don't wanna disappoint . Lol
How is everyone handling how long people stay? I love that people are willing to come so far to my wedding and make a vacation out of it but how do I politely tell them that this is still our honeymoon too?   I feel like my sisters are more excited about going to Jamaica than the actual wedding! They are talking about buying an extra suitcase when they already each have 2 huge ones! I'm like 'really?? I don't want you hanging around my entire wedding-moon!!!"
We are ok with people staying however long they'd like. Remember you want them to consider it a vacation so you really can't impose on them a time limit if they are spending all that money. Might be better if you change hotels. We plan on actually going to another part of DR for a few days. They have nice resorts in Puerto Plata too, but we also don't care if some friends go with us. As far as I'm concerned ill have plenty of lonely romantic time in the future. Besides all the ALONE time you need is in your room . Lol. Otherwise we don't mind spending time on the vacation with friends and certain family. When you need " alone time" for like a romantic dinner or something we will just tell them. I'm sure they'd understand. One of my best friends has been married for over 30 yrs. Shes like " ohhhh don't honeymoon alone , that's so boring " lololol. Ill take any advice from a couple that's been together that long.
No problem for me that people are staying, because I fully intend to move to another resort! LOL
Kudos!
Question: Is anyone skipping mailed-in paper RSVPs?  I think I am! I never remember to send those things back. Lol I'm doing online RSVP only, and I was told "that is SO improper." TO me: it saves trees, and both FI and I are tech nerds, so online is best for us. Our STD even has a QR code to scan that takes you to our website..lol
Improper blah, only people not up on technology will be older family, they'll tell you verbally yay or nay

For those of you who are still getting out save the dates and invites (like me!), here's a neat little service that I've been using: https://www.postable.com.  You just send your friends a personalized link and they fill in all of the information (address, spouse name, etc.)  It's so easy, and one of my friends said it was very straightforward, easy to read and very cool.  (And the best part is that it's free.99!! LOL)
Omg! I love you... This has been such an annoying process for me. Lol
Good news all around! Glad things are working out for you! We are at the beginning of planning and it seems a little overwhelming....I thought this would be much easier than planning an at home wedding, but now I realize a DW has it's own challenges! Oh, well, I guess nothing good is easy!
welcome girl! You have no idea! But feel free to use all of us as a testing/ sounding board
I'm jealous! We wont be having an engagement party haha :)
Me neither!
