June 2013 brides- what are you doing?

Recommended Posts

We're going the fake flower submerged in water like this but with taller vases and votive candles scattered around. I was pleasantly surprised with how real they look even close up. Looking at the from afar you can't even tell!  I'm really hoping the hotel has vases that we can use or rent bc I don't want to have to bring them down.

I am still undecided about exactly how my centerpieces will look, but I just completed these table "numbers" today. Each table will actually be a city vs a "number." When the guests get to the reception a table will be set up with maracas and each maraca will have the guests name and what "city" they are sitting in.

@ MK0386 cute numbers!

 

We're doing the submerged calla lilies.  I still think they're too expensive (we have rectangular tables, and with one vase in the center and 2 smaller ones (one on each side), it's USD $62.50 per table).  But unless we want to lug vases there (we don't), it's the best we could do!

 

For our cocktail hour, we're doing vases with a candle, sand, and shells, and those are only about $20 each, so maybe ask about those if you're okay with them?

Hey ladies just an FYI stamp prices are going up next week by 1 cent. If you are doing postcard RSVP's like me, this means that it will now be 33 instead of 32....which I now have 80 32 cent stamps and im going to loose my mind!! :)

 

BUT just to save a little money on your invites- heads up the forever stamps (which are currently 45 cent) will automatically be changed to 46 so if you buy your postage before Jan 27th and get the forever stamps then you can save .01 on the postage! :) I know it isnt much, but if you are inviting a lot of guests it does add up!

Oh no! What does this mean for my RSVP's that are still out? I just sent them about 2 weeks ago & there's over 100! Will I not get these back?

I knew about the price increase and that's one reason mine are out already but I can't believe I didn't think about actually getting the RSVPs back!!! :/ good thing I already have 36 booked and have gotten a lot of RSVPs back... I hope this wont affect anyone too badly.

Did you send your RSVPs with forever stamps or with priced ones?  If they were forever you're fine (that's all I ever buy these days), but if not I think they will just come to you postage due, if your guests don't realize ahead of time and add a 1 cent stamp.

I honestly have no idea. I just got them from the post office and they were the only post card stamps they had. Hopefully it works out.

Yeah if it was the only postcard stamp then it is the 32, which is what i have too! 

Usually the postage due comes to the person receiving the letter, so you might just have to keep paying the mail man .01. :) Who knows!! I guess you could mention it to on your wedding website maybe...Im sure itll be fine though!

True! Thanks for the advice! From what I hear, not many people even send the RSVP's back anyways! I'll be fine with owing the postman .01 if I have to! :-)

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
