SURPRISE Bridal Shower!

Placecards - Gold and Chocolate
Is it possible to print gold ink on a chocolate brown piece of cardstock?
I am making my own place cards and am trying to figure out how I am going to do GOLD lettering on CHOCOLATE BROWN paper??
I really dont want to have to write them by hand because my handwriting is not so good ha.
Any advice/tips would be much appreciated!
only 30days to go!!!! ahhhh
Where can i get this wedding cake topper?
We met with the person who is going to do our cake yesterday and she was so great! I showed her pictures, including this one and she loved it and said she could def do something very close to it, without using fondant (which I def didnt want).
I thought this cake was so beautful and totally fits in with the french, antique kinda look i am going for. I cannot wait to see how it turns out.
The only problem is the topper on the cake. I need to buy this to make it look similar to this cake and I will just put real pink flowers in it.
Anyone know where I can find something like this cake topper? I dont even know what it is ?? ha
Ask a Question
Favor tag wording?
Ok, this is a minor detail, but that’s what I’m all about, the little details!
So, as wedding favors I am going to put together chocolates in brown boxes with gold ribbon. I want to have a tag attached to the box, but I don't want to just have a monogram or wedding date on the tag.
I would like to put a cute saying on it, like "Love is Sweet" but maybe a little longer that has to do with chocolate and love, marriage, ya know?
I've looked at wedding sites for ideas but haven't had much luck. I know how smart and "wedding informed" yall are so Im wondering if anyone knows of or can think of a cute saying I can put on my favors?????
My Rhode Island Bridal Shower!
I had my first bridal shower last month in Rhode Island, which made it interesting because had to plan everything from Florida and we arrived in RI only two days before the shower.
I had it at my aunts summer home on a lake, it was georgeous!
Everything turned out great! We had to move inside because it had rained all morning, so it turned into a cozy shower beside the fireplace.
I made my own centerpieces and bought other decorations. I got the flowers for the centerpieces from ...
. ...and got free shipping because it was in New England. I would definitely recommend them for buying large quanities of flowers, they have great prices and having the flowers shipped is very convenient!
Here is a website for garden theme favor/decoration ideas...
Also, for games we did bridal bingo and wedding word scramble. Here is a great link for games, where I got some ideas.
All in all, the food was great, the place was great, and the company was great! Couldn't of asked for a better bridal shower!
Might change my venue room??
I could get a wedding worth $20,000 for $10,000!
This is why its a good idea to keep a good relationship with your venue coordinator and to ask a lot of questions and let them know your concerns........
My receptions site is beautiful, Crowne Plaza Oceanfront Resort & Spa, def the best place around!
It has two rooms; the grand ballroom which is a minimum $20,000 on a Saturday night (out of the question for my venue/food only budget!) and the St. Lucia room which is min. $10,000 on a Saturday night but can only fit 118 people. We went with the St. Lucia room. So I have been happily planning away!
Well... today i was talking to Lauren, the coordinator@ the Crowne Plaza and asking her for the third time how many people max can I fit in the St. Lucia room and she said 118. But then she was like, "well if you really want to invite a few more people I could get you into the ballroom at no additional charge"
decisions decisions.....haha. I still have to talk to my fiance but I think I might just switch just to have a wedding worth $20,000 for only $10,000!
I love Lauren and she has been so patient with my millions of questions and is so helpful!
Keep asking questions ladies! You make get more than you paid for :)
I cannot believe I found these!
I was losing hope in my inviation search because all of the invitations I actually liked were at least $400 for 100!!
I accidentally stumbled apon these while I was shopping for other wedding accessories. I could not believe it , they are exactally what I wanted...brown, pocketfold, inexpensive, and super cute!
The only down side is that I have to get them printed myself and def dont want to take on that project ... knowing me i'll mess them up.
Im gonna have to start looking around for places that will print them.
All in all I am really excited about these, here is proof that finding fabulous, inexpensive invitations is possible!!
Crowne Plaza Oceanfront Resort & Spa
~Our reception will be held at the Crowne Plaza. It is definitely the nicest place around (believe me cause I checked them all). It is newly renovated because of the 2004 hurricanes so it is immaculate.
~The cocktail hour will be outside on the deck, only about 50 feet from the ocean. The view is breathtaking!
~Following the cocktail hour, the reception will be held in the St. Lucia room, which is the second picture. I love the colors in the room and all the windows make the room unique to all other rooms I looked into renting..
