Do you know if any other brides have had to pay customs when the parcel comes?  I order a lot from the Beau-coup website and it was quite the surprise when the duty was almost half of the order price.  I was soooo annoyed.

 

That was another reason why I was waiting for the sale, so at least the price would be less and maybe duty would be less.

@veryvalentine ohh interesting. Where is beaucoup located? I've ordered so many things from the states and never had to pay for customs. Same thing with items from abroad (bridesmaid dresses).

 

@Wafflesmom Did you have to pay any customs charges when you received your wedding chicks totes?

the coil cards look great! i love the design on them :)

 

Time goes by so fast, and wait until you get to the 6month mark, it will literally disappear. I'm guessing when you get to the 3 month mark it starts to speed up again! I guess I'll find out in a few weeks haha. 

 

I totally loved those bags from weddingchicks. Those were the ones I wanted but I missed the last sale and waited for a while but when nothing else came up I went with plan B, which was basically plagiarizing them :P. If the sale doesn't come up again (hopefully it does though) you can always get cotton bags and use an iron on to plagiarize them as well hahah.

@TinkerSofi Thank you! I'm so happy with how they turned out. I'm all about the 'little details' that pull the wedding together and really make it known how much thought was put into everything.

 

Time is flying.. It's scary! I even remember when your ticker counter said six months and now you're almost at three!!! It's exciting to watch all the brides who are getting closer to their date. Especially after seeing all of your planning and with you sharing your thread.. I can't wait to see how it all unfolds for you!! :) So exciting.

 

I was thinking the same thing. If I can't get those bags, I will just create my own that are extremely similar ;) haha

@perianjay I love the wrist coils and badge holders. I still have to order those. So far I think everyone has said that they get used the most.

I never got charged duty for the weddingchicks bags and I ordered 25 of them shipped to my home. I bought them during their black Friday sale and they were 50% off. They came pretty quickly too, maybe 2 weeks after ordering and approving proofs.

I was gonna forward you the weddingchicks email until I figured out it was for a different company. I think they are toying with our hopes and dreams lol

Vistaprint order

 

I ordered some more goodies from Vistaprint last week using the groupon deal ($70 worth for $27).

I've ordered pretty much everything I need at this point (this was my second order), with the exception of the backs of my program fans. I will have to wait to order those until I have the firmed up details on who is coming (we may or may not have ring bearers and Chester's best man is currently trying to get a teaching job so he can't 100% promise to be there until September.

 

I previously ordered my 'daily itinerary' and my 'welcome letter' from Vistaprint, but totally forgot to print my weekly itinerary. I made sure to add it to this order! I'm planning to pair all three and wrap with bakers twine (like below photo).

 

Weekly Itinerary looks like...(PS. that's the plastic band holding it together near the top)

Total package of Welcome letter, daily itinerary and weekly itinerary will look like..(pink/white striped bakers twine purchased from Michaels)

Attached File  Welcome Package.png   342.94KB   9 downloads

 

I'm so happy with how these look!! They will be included inside the welcome bags.

 

I also designed and printed the front of the program fans..The back will be a more simplistic look, but I want this side up on the chairs. I'm going to also tie a bow to the handle as well..

I also ordered some custom stickers because I decided to order some white and coral striped paper treat bags off of Etsy last week (inspired by @Wafflesmom on this one) I'm going to use these stickers to seal the bags.

Lastly are my sparkler tags.. SO excited with how these turned out. Instead of spending an astronomical amount on Etsy, I decided to design my own and then order them as a vertical business card on Vistaprint. I then just punched the holes in them when I got them.

I tried it out on a sparkler at home.. looks great!!

Overall really happy with everything. I only spent $7 extra on the order outside of my $27 groupon.

@perianjay Everything looks amazing and so professional!

 

I love how all the different pieces go together so well. I find it hard to find designs that fit within a theme but aren't matchy-matchy. You pulled that off perfectly!
