Elissae's RPRM Planning Thread for April 2, 2013 - PIC HEAVY!

Recommended Posts

I went onto vista print to attempt to make welcome cards, room key inserts, and gift tags but cannot seem to figure the site out. It looks like I need to order 100ish postcards or business cards for each order. How did you order your welcome cards and other items? Did you just order 100 some pieces of everything? Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Marymack, nabateman, DVhtu!!!!  You girls are sweet. 

 

Stephanie, Vistaprint is definitely challenging at first, but then once you keep playing with it you start to figure things out.  Create an account on their site.  Then keep going on the site and create things & save them in your account portfolio.  After doing that a few times, vistaprint will send you tons of emails with different specials/discounts.

 

The welcome cards I did were 100 - so of course I did not use all of them..but I got them for free....just paid shipping.  The postcards were 100 as well...but I am giving my guests 4 postcards per welcome bag so they can use them to write a note and mail!  The business cards require at least 250....but the gift tags are same size as business cards so I think you can order them in smaller lots of 25 or 50.  Keep playing and if you run into a snag - let me know.  GOOD LUCK!

Ceremony Programs

 

I am halfway done with our Ceremony Programs thanks to my BFF for coming over last night to help.  Most importantly A BIG THANK YOU to BDW bride, skp1 (Stephanie) with her inspiring idea.

Signage

 

My BFF bought me these Senor/Senora signs for Christmas from the Etsy website.  I will hang them off our chairs at the wedding reception.

I found these cute glitter letters at Michael's in their $2 bins.  I may use for table decor at the Reharsal Dinner or better yet, my BFF suggested we hang them on the front door of our suite at the resort.

Gift for my Mom who is my MOH

 

I bought this handkerchief on Etsy for my Mom.  The picture does not capture the colors well.  It is navy blue and the scroll is green.  My mom calls me Punky (from the old show Punky Brewster).

Elissa, what color are your blue maracas? Mine came yesterday and I had ordered bright blue but for some reason when holding them up to the picture online they look like the light blue ones, although the packing slip says bright blue

    • 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? 
    • Hello Everyone, Share your favorite wedding venues. And also give me a Solution. I choose Wedding Venues in mobile al the Anne-marie cottage.
    • Hello Jania! are you bringing any external vendor for your wedding?
    • Looking forward to seeing your cruise wedding photos!!!
