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

Cocktail hour/reception project  - personalized straws

 

I ordered some pinstriped straws from Etsy (Sweet Treats Boutique) and made personalized flags for them.  I bought the paper for the flags at www.paperpresentations.com .  The paper is a Matte finish called Desert Storm).

Here is the generic template I used for the flags:

 

 

 

Once I completed my design on the attached template, I printed the template and used a paper cutter to trim the flags.  I used double-sided tape on the back of the flags and folded them in half by pressing the ends together.  I then slid the flag onto the straw & secured it at the desired position with the tape.  I then pressed the paper tightly together around the straw.  Once the flag was secured, I cut out a "V" by freehand.

 

Additonal Things

 

I also ordered the following Thank You Cards for our Dinner Reception Plates from Etsy (That Pretty Invitation - Alexia Vondrachek) - they have been made navy blue with white print & personalized with our names.  I will post a picture when I receive...they are en route!  I am looking for affordable little burlap flowers to use to display them like in the picture.

I just picked out our wedding cake - same as this picture, yet green and white flowers instead of the pink roses.  We also ordered the anchor cake topper in the picture from Etsy (The Pink Owl Gifts).

More to come....we leave in 4 weeks!

    • 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.
