Joannabanana's Planning Thread - May 12Th 2016 - Grand Sirenis

Recommended Posts

The Grand Sirenis also has a facebook group and lots from the UK!

 

$800 is stupid! I mean I only paid $500 for my dress for crying out loud!  I think for my DIY invites we paid around $35! hahah!

 

You aren't cheap, you are smart!

Yeah I think I spent $45 for all mine, including all the supplies I didn't have like paper punchers and things like that.

Glad to hear I'm not cheap!  I was literally laughing out loud.  I've never had invitations made before, and I know all things wedding related tend to be inflated in price so I thought maybe it was normal!  I have all next week off, so I'm going to try to buckle down and bang these out.  I borrowed the giant paper cutter from work, I'm skeptical that it will cut with enough precision, but I'm going to try. 

 

With the design I'm having difficulty putting an image behind and still having it show up.  I'll fight with that over the weekend.

Good luck. Please post when you are done :)

Hahah I brought our paper cutter home from work often. I found it worked much better than the cheaper ones I had bought from michaels.

For my boarding passes I just cut a straight edge I didn't round the corners.

@@JoannaBanana There's an online store called Paper Garden (I think that's it). I used them when we got married 4 years ago and their paper prices are amazing! They also have the fold over envelopes as well as the special square size ones that would work for passport and boarding pass invites. I found the link  www.paper-garden.ca  You can order "chips" of the paper styles and colours to see what you like. They're pricing is great and since it's Canada they'll use priority post to send so you aren't paying US shipping costs.

 

Hope that helps!

@@JoannaBanana I love your invitations. They look so cute and colorful! I love the textured paper! All the hard work will be worth it when people comment on how much they loved your invitations! Make sure you keep one for yourself!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
