Totally!! Do you use groupon? If you do not I can send you a link (as a referred friend) theyâ€ll send me a $10 once you buy something. (Every time you refer someone they do that)

They have a $17 for 70 going on now for 14more days. (got my for 7 for referring a friend that purchase something).

 

Theyâ€ll give you a code to apply at time of purchase but you will want to apply the 50% off found http://www.retailmenot.com/view/vistaprint.com then apply your groupon.

20 bags was $159.99

50% off made it $79.99

Apply your gruopon $70.00

Making it $9.99

$1.34 a bag

Also that advantage of all the free offers at http://www.retailmenot.com/view/vistaprint.com

It took me many tries to figure it out but it was worth it J PM if anything

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.

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 )

I blocked 10 rooms in total, had to put down $100 per room and it was applied to our room fee. Every 6th room booked we receive a "free room" so basically we get the money. Which works well for me! lol. We are expecting 30-40 guests.

Who are you using to book?

And how many rooms should I request? We are only inviting 22 people and not sure all are coming but I guess we should assume everyone is to make sure we have the rooms held? Only 5 couples and everyone else is single. I wasn't sure if i should request one room per single person or ask my friends if 2 girls and 2 guys want to share a room?

 

We didn't room block. We informed people that they had two weeks to pay their deposits. It worked out better for us in the end.

So, I decided to DIY my own invites so I printed all the inside pages already *yay* and than I went to Michael's to price card stock paper (40% off coupon starts sunday). I found this textured card stock, 40 sheets for $3.99 and can use the coupon!! And than while I was there I saw those triangle banners.....12 triangles for $1.40 so I bought them, they're white and I'm going to write out "Thank you" and use them for our engagement phone shoot (which we are getting done on the beach in FL for $30, win!) and also take them for the wedding....

 

Than I went online.....downfall!! LOL I had 30 free prints and free shipping for snapfish, so I used that to print our engagement party pictures! Than on to GNC to get my total lean shakes, buy one get one 1/2 off! (gotta fit in that damn dress!), ordered my envelopes for my invitations!!!!, ordered waterproof labels & stickers so I can print them and put on tumblers and stuff, and than I did the groupon for vistaprint and got 4 custom shirts for a total of $17. LOL.....now time to put the card away and step away from the order now button....woot2.gif

 

SHOP!

    • 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?
