            When I get home tonight I will email you the template. Honestly I bought all the paper and envelopes from paperandmore.com and I printed on my home printer (a very cheap printer at that!) You can take to kinkos to cut or cut yourself with a paper cutter. I couldn't fathom paying $500 for invites. and Could you believe?!? My invites have gone out and I have to make more?!? Because my mom wants keepsakes and my FI's grandfather wants to invite the entire island of St. Vincent!!

            Of course mom wants keepsakes..too funny FI grandfather. .your so right mine were almost $500 fi had a fit and those were only stds..I need to get it together

                Hey ladies. What are you all doing for flowers..bridal bouquets and for those of you having bridal parties..what are you doing for the girls/guys. The prices at my resort for flowers seem so outrageous. Im thinking of doing real touch. They look so real and a lot more cost effective.

                  It does help that my mom was a catering director for a hotel and used to plan weddings and now she's a preschool teacher and she is very good at throwing creative ideas at me to spice things up. So I decided that my favors would be mini bottles of mamajuana since it's in DR. I bought the bottles empty, my dad will either make or we'll just ask the bartenders at the resort to fill up the bottles, their mamajuana is the best!!! But I need ideas for the labels now! UGH!
