Yeah, sorry I understood that you couldn't return them but if you can that would be step #1 for sure, especially if it was their mistake. Even if not, maybe you can exchange them, you might have to pay for shipping again so something else to consider.

I went back to last summer when I first contacted the company about having a small number of the pouches - I only ordered 10 - and it looks like without me realizing it, the order defaulted to blue. I know I did ask about a clear and looking at the company's website now, there isn't one. Only a smoke grey colour. But I think because it was a special order and not through their website, that's where the mixup ended up coming from. The minimum order is 150 but they said I could order the small number and they put it together. I look at the quote now and see what I missed about the colour being blue.

 

Thanks for the suggestions. I'll play around with the colours this weekend on my cards to see what I can do, if anything. I really hate to let them go but I was so proud of my little design to put inside the pouch. Thankfully I have a TON of time to figure it out.

Maybe use a hole punch...punch your cards and attached them directly to ring on the pouch, or tie them with a ribbon to the zipper so they are not actually in the pouch...realistically it's just to tell them what the pouch is for so it doesn't need to go in the pouch. That way nothing goes to waste or needs to be changed... those pouches are super cute and so are your cards

Oh that's a SUPER idea!!!! I didn't even think of that! It might just work! Everyone will probably take the card out anyway once we're at the resort so realistically the card wouldn't be around for too long. And I got hot pink raffia ribbon from Hobby Lobby in the US delivered to Dustin's as well to tie around the maracas so I could use the fuschia ribbon to tie the tag on. I did buy a 1/8" hole punch so it would make a smaller size hole. yep - that just might work!!! I'm going to try it tonight and see how it comes out!!

Cool!! Thanks @Meandhim!!!

Glad I could help...I find that when you see an idea on here (like the room key pouch) and everyone does it pretty much the same way (card inside the pouch) it's hard to see it another way.

Fantastic idea!!! Makes total sense as I'm sure people just pull that card out anyways to make more space :)

@Meandhim awesome idea! 

 

@acw271011 I did the same thing with my wrist coils. I thought I set it to order all of them in blue but somehow it defaulted to multi-coloured. I was a little disappointed at first but then realized I'm probably the only one who cares that they are different colours.  ;)

Well it actually turned out ok!! Too tired tonight to post pics but I'll try and do it tomorrow. I've done 3 different cards, two with a picture of the resort and one without. So now it's just to pick which one to attach. Even the hole punch worked out ok! Thinking about it, people will probably take the card out of the inside anyway if you're putting your room key and tip money in there. So it does sort of make sense to just attach the card on the outside.

 

Thanks again ladies!

I need another round of opinions please.

 

The love of my life, when I told him about my dress, nearly choked! lol Poor guy. But he asked reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally nicely if there was a way we could get the price of the dress down. It was going to run me $2,000 with the price, tax and alterations. That's almost the price of our trip!! I really can't argue with the logic, no matter how much I want to and when he asks nicely, well I'm just a sucker for a sexy guy.....

 

So....... I need to know what you think of this dress. I posted a new forum last night about a website I found. I've been following it for a couple of months now. This dress I found last summer when I started to look. I love it in the mocha colour. Enter the last minute bride. They have the dress but in ivory. I'm ok with that. I just don't know how low the price is going to be yet. I actually thought about taking at least one layer of the underskirt out to tone it down a little. Let me know what you think.

Here are the 3 cards I made to attach to the room key holder. Again, let me know what you think. Three different colour combos.
