Ooh @perianjay Christmas in April? Lol All of your purchases look great. Your ceremony sandals are gorgeous, as are your reception ones. Those sandals from Aldo look so sexy, that's what I love about heels I was looking at Wedding Prep Gals for robes but you got yours for such a great price! Gonna look into them right after I type this message!

And you did such a great job with the floral crown, it's gonna look great for your engagement photos

@ashhtayy Thanks! I loved the little detail and how they say "in sickness and in health" so fitting!! haha

 

Isn't online shopping too addictive??! I can't stop now haha

I'm sure the black ones will look really nice!! The shop owner is so sweet and I really didn't mind because I don't need them in a rush. She is going to send me them again free of charge :)


@veryvalentine thanks!! :) I'm really happy with them. I have to take the advil bottles out of the boxes and it's slightly an awkward fit, but I made it work. I'm really happy I ordered these.


@Wafflesmom Aww thanks so much :) 

 

Yes, it truly does feel like Christmas in April hahaha

 

I'm also going to wear those Aldo ones with my tulle skirt for the engagement shoot :)

The colors will always be a bit off, no matter where you go to print things. It varies a lot from printer to printer too, so do a few trials until it gets really close but don't change printers or you'll have to start all over again haha. We were just talking with my MOH the other day about this and my welcome brochures. She's a graphic designer and she tells me "keep in mind the colors aren't going to be exactly the same when you print them". Apparently every printer is a new world. 

 

Yeah that's my source of frustration. I work so hard at trying to get the colour what I want, then print it andit looks yucky! And I have a good quality printer!! The thing is the ink cartridges for this one aren't cheap and the more I print trying to get things right, the more ink I use so I can't win. Might be time to look at Staples or TPH.


Geez I'm just full of dumb questions lately. Could someone please tell me what a vows book is? And excuse the stupidity. Thank you very much.

I had the same question lol. I totally want to know what's inside! :P

 

We printed our invites at Staples, we asked for a sample first and the color was still off from what it was on the computer so I fixed it once and basically said "screw it". They turned out fine though. You can also ask them to cut them for you for a super small fee and that saves you a ton of time and frustration too. Well at least I get frustrated when I cut because I suck so much at it.

@TinkerSofi @acw271011 a cute book we can write our wedding vows in so that when we're crying and can't remember everything we had planned to say we can take a quick peak at a cute book rather than cue cards or lined paper :)

I plan on having my vows down pat so these will likely just be used for a picture or two lol

Yep. I bought a cutter and still suck at it. I found something at Michaels that will work for maracas tags and have tried to print but the colours just aren't right. The other thing is the tags to go onto the room key pouches. I have 3 designs and don't know yet which one I'm going to pick, but 2 of them have a resort pic on them and one is plain. I figured since I'm not putting them inside the blue pouch I can be a bit pickier about the colours. If I could get them right anyway.....
