Tygrrlily's Planning Thread - Beach Palace Resort - 12/19/14

Recommended Posts

@marinah84- Vistaprint is SO fast. I think they arrived within 2 days.  The estimation is always something long, but I always choose standard shipping and it comes within 1-2 days.

 

Yes I wasn't sure about sizing either!  The medium or oversized postcards are both nice sizes.  The rack card is a bit smaller for a door hanger, but I'll make it work


@@calgarybride2015 - Yes, start your planning thread! You're less than 4 months out now :). This thread also keeps me accountable and I get excited to update it because it means I've finished something! 

 

I have actually ordered business cards from Vistaprint before.  I got the basic personal ones.  The card stock is really similar to what I got for my itinerary and thank you letter. It's glossy on one side and matte on the other. I thought about doing business cards for the luggage tag or room tag inserts, but I'm just printing them myself because I don't need all that many and I can fit like 10-12 on a page so it's quite cheap to make!

@@tygrrlily You have really motivated me to get on the ball. My wedding is in February and I haven't done a third of what you've done! Everything looks great :)

How did your luggage tags print out?

I finally found something for mine, that fiance and I both like, but importing it into Vistaprint ruins it (like you said)... so I will probably just print at home!   I think I have enough to use my vistaprint coupon regardless. 

 

I was going to do most myself on my printer, but that coupon made it seem like a great deal. After printing all my invites, I have to assume I must be low on ink LOL

 

I didn't know if I could start my planning thread until I had everything done - but it seems I can do it the way you are as well :)  I could start working on one!

@@calgarybride2015 - They printed great and I totally just copied and pasted a graphic I googled! The cards are quite small.

 

I thought about waiting too, but I actually like posting the process :). I get excited when I finish something and can post about it haha.  Also, some of the other more recent planning threads all seem to be following this route

hehe, no I think posting as you go is great!  I just know that I spent some time going thru the older planning threads and most were done a day or two before they left or after they got back!

It never dawned on me to keep posting new items because at first I thought people would only look once and never look again!!!

@@calgarybride2015 - I think for brides that read old threads, it's great.  But there's probably always a bunch of brides planning weddings at the same time, and in that case, it's fun to read as they go along! I know I was reading NJBride's thread eagerly everytime she updated :)

    • 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.
