They did paint both sides, but I made  aspecial request to have them do so.  I just realized that i never posted my completed mongram.  My Fi cut a flat metal scewer in half and I used E600 glue to adhere it to the back. It shouldn't show when placed on the cake since I will have flowers at the base. I didn't bother taking a opic after adding the scewer stand-offs.

But I'm sure I can also attach the dowel or rod to the backside of the letter. I haven't completely thought this part through obviously... :-/  but I know we will find something that works perfectly. ;o)

Yea i got a thin letter as well, the thinnest one they  have, 1/8 I believe...i asked them to paint it and they only painted the front...kind of annoying now i have to get silver paint to paint the back myself! I was thinking about how to get it on the cake, since i haven't yet started to decorate it.

No it's just painted silver on the back,  If I find extra time I might, but i don't think it's necessary and i used really small crystals, so it was a bit more time consuming than anticipated,

Thanks Britney! We do a lot of grilling and had plenty of skewers to spare,  but you shouldn't have any problem finding them.  We chose the flat skewer specifically so it would have more adhering surface than the typical round skewers.  But I've even seen a pack of 6 in our local market.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
