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.....

One thing I love for tags are those punchers you can find at Michael's haha. They make the job of cutting pretty easy ;). I'm using one for the tags on the fans. 

 

 

@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

they are really cute. I'm hoping my experience doing presentations will come in handy at that time :P haha. I also don't know if we want to do our own vows. I asked Juan but he seems pretty mortified at the idea every time I bring it up haha so I don't want to put him through that. Maybe we can say them to each other on our wedding night :)

@perianjay The robes look great and what a good buy. I'll be looking into this. You said they are a bit long. How long are they? The photos on dhgate seem to show both full length and short?

 

(I assume these are the correct ones: http://www.dhgate.co...-1-1|2896616413)

Got my bridesmaid dresses in the mail yesterday! @veryvalentine I found the quality to be pretty decent (not AMAZING lol, but pretty good).

Also, do you know what the extra "tube top" piece is for?

 

Going to see one of my girls in the next week or so. Will have to have her try it and see how it looks :)

@vancouverpetunia They go just past my knee. I'd say they are more of a 3/4 length. I was hoping for a bit shorter (knee length) So i'm going to have them hemmed.

Hi @perianjay

 

Yay! That's exciting!  

 

I agree, the quality is decent.  the one that I received had a few threads sticking out...and the thickness of the material is alright.  I think i was a bit more picky because I had tried the Kleinfeld's ones and so I was comparing it to something else.  If I had nothing to compare it to I'd prob have no complaints. ;) 

 

Ya, the tube top!  No idea.  I'm meeting up with one of my BMs today and she's an expert on how to style these dresses so i'll see what she comes up with and take pics! :0

 

Have you seen these videos?

@veryvalentine I agree.. The fabric could be better. They are definitely decent though and will do what we need them to for the day of the wedding. I'm still happy with them for the price that I paid.. I must admit.

 

Thanks so much for pinning those videos on my page! That's perfect. I'm going to watch these.

No problem!  thank you for letting me know about these dresses!  

I could watch the videos over and over..it's amazing really how many different styles can be done.

 

I'm also finished the template for the sparklers.  I'm going to try to work on them this weekend and see if they are functional.  I have the template I made and one other that I will send you when I'm done :)

@veryvalentine @perianjay I'm still thinking about getting one of these dresses for myself for the rehearsal dinner (a full length one). How thin is the material...is anyone worried about going bra-less especially when it gets chilly at night?? LOL! Sorry if that's TMI... ;)

@snswedding2016 Ummm It isn't TOO thin. I put my hand under it and held it up and you couldn't see. As for going bra-less, it's totally doable. There is SO much extra material for wrapping etc and it also comes with an extra tube top as well.. which I could see someone wearing as an extra layer underneath if need be :)
