    I think I may have mentioned this, but I have a good friend who has an arts degree/graphic design background who also used to own a card business. She is designing our wedding suite. We worked on a first draft last night (and by 'we', I mean 'her', LOL) but we will have to make some tweaks.  I really like it, but my mom doesn't like the oil painting effects we used over the background (don't care, because I like it and won't change it too much unless FH doesn't like it).  However, the font is hard to read, which we definitely need to fix.

      ETA: The first draft is the draft of the STD.  Also, I get all of my printing for free, so that helps as well.

            This will probably be ridiculously expensive but a mix of debdrobium orchids, callas and/or hyacinths in bright tropical colors (thinking orange, fuschia, yellow)

             

            If I go with Secrets, their included bouquet is just daisies and carnations - can you believe that??? It's the Caribbean and you can't even throw in a simple orchid or a cheaper tropical flower?

             

            It's like they force you to upgrade the bouquet....

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!

              that's a cute idea but the airport security made us throw it out when we were on our way home. it was in our checked luggage and they wouldn't let us bring it
