Hi kard613,

 

I ordered the Large Brite Blue & the Large Lime Green ones.  It's possible they may have sent you the wrong ones...I would email Amols and send them a picture of the ones you received to confirm the color.  In the order they sent me I had a few broken /damaged ones that they replaced as well as a few Large Seafoam green ones - I could see the color difference.  Their email address is sales@amols.com.

 

Amols was great to work with and sent me the correct color green colored ones as well as replaced those that were damaged/broken.  They said I could toss the damaged ones and they sent UPS to pick up the incorrect colored ones for FREE. 

 

Let me know how you make out.  Good Luck!!!

    Thank Elissa!  I actually did email them on Friday night and they put samples of both the blues in the mail to me today so I can compare them. I didn't even think to look through the entire box to see about broken ones, guess I will be doing that today. They're customer service has been very responsive and helpful so far.

    I FINISHED MY CEREMONY PROGRAMS!!!!!  WOOT HOOT!!!  I ALSO COMPLETED MY GUEST BOOK FOR THE WEDDING RECEPTION!!!

     

    I've been looking for a unique idea for our Guest Book for a few months now...I finally decided I wanted to have a beautiful hard covered coffee table book...perhaps a photo book of Playa del Carmen that our guests could sign.  Do you think I could find one???  Absolutely not.  

     

    I then read on this forum that BDW Bride, Cougs created a Guest Book on Shutterfly using photos she found of Playa del Carmen on the internet as well as the website Flickr.  I found a lot of cool photos on FLickr and I also used some photos I took in Playa del Carmen when we stayed at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya (our wedding resort) almost 3 years ago.

     

    Shutterly has some great photo book designs as well as promotional coupons all the time.

     

    I just made this book this week & paid $44.05!  I just ordered it a few minutes ago & wanted to share.

     

    I had a 40 % coupon which expires tomorrow (GIVEHEART) as well as free shipping (SHIP30) if you spend over $30!

     

    Take a peak - so excited.to see the end result!

      Love your guest book Elissa! I also did mine on Shutterfly but I took advantage of the free 8 X 8 photobook coupon I found and used our engagement photos.  It came out so lovely!  What size is your book? I am thinking I might want a bigger one.

        Oh and another thing I am grappled with about this guest book (I used the same design as you did) is how to get people to sign it. Some of the pages have more detailed things to fill in and if the book is say in the front somewhere and is to be signed as people enter the reception, won't there be a long queue?  Do you plan to pass it around?

        Isn't it so fun!?!  I created the 8 x 1  photo book.  I realized this morning in the shower that I did not put Playa del Carmen anywhere on the book/cover or the resort name, but oh well!  No biggie...we will all know where we are/were.

        As far as geting people to sign it, I may spread the word to the guests a few days prior to the wedding...just letting them know about the guest book and how there's fun things in there.  The majority of our guests are arriving Saturday and our wedding is Tuesday so I should be able to "spread the word."  I may also make an announcement at the reception as well and perhaps have some key friends even pass it around to sign.

          That sounds like a great idea!  I think I will do the same and "spread the word" as well.
