haha ruby you're so silly! on the glass vase thing, I ended up with FIVE vases (I have no idea why I originally bought them!) I've just wrapped them in a couple of layers of newspaper and stuck them in a plastic tub with a lid. My brother even dropped the tub AND it had another heavy tub put on top if it and there's nary a crack! That whole explanation was kinda useless on you though since you already bought alternatives haha. *shakes fist at you*  Grin That makes me think - EVERY centerpiece idea I come up with is more suited towards round tables, but we have long rectangular (banquet?) tables.

GUYYSSS! I think we've decided on the BAHAMAS for our honeymoon! My mom said she'll basically pay for the basics for us, and if we want any shore excursions or any upgrades, we'd have to pay but dude... We're still getting off cheap! It makes me excited that we've pretty much got it pinned down. We were between Colorado and Florida (with no cruise) but then BOOM! Here comes Florida with a cruise to the Bahamas. Sorry for rambling; I"m just excited. I feel like I did some other wedding related stuff but I can't remember. Maybe I just talked to one of my bridesmaids a lot and used the wedding as an excuse to talk to her at work haha Smiley

haha ruby you're so silly! on the glass vase thing, I ended up with FIVE vases (I have no idea why I originally bought them!) I've just wrapped them in a couple of layers of newspaper and stuck them in a plastic tub with a lid.

we did that with vases and other glass things for the candy buffet, but the vases we were looking at for centerpieces were decent sized and we were going to order 18 of them (we needed a few to mess with because we had planned to spray paint the insides to make them opaque)... and that'd probably be at least two big boxes to add to our almost-a-closet full of stuff.  so i'm happy that we got these pails ($1 at target!) so we don't have to deal with painting and because they stack together and take up about two feet by one foot, and can go in the same tub as the flowers.  woo hoo!

and yay, bahamas!  i think we're going to wait to take a honeymoon til our one year anniversary (because i start school two days after we get married, yuck) and we were talking about the bahamas.  have you guys looked at the all-inclusives?

Woohoo Bahamas! One of my maids is going to the Bahamas for her honeymoon. All the pictures she showed were beautiful. I laugh at her every time she calls Nassau "Nasa" Smiley

I have stacks of 11 3/4" tall, 3" diameter vases in my closet. I don't think they're destructible because they've lasted through my 4 year old sister playing with them Grin

ruby, how was your experience printing invites with kinko's? I am going back and forth between printing mine there  or by myself. I can't decide!

OMG ehinders.  it cost me 26 bucks to have them print and cut them out for me, and i have to tell you that it was worth every penny. 

i tried using several different (free) copy machines and printers with different settings but none of them got the colors right and would cut bits of it off, which stressed me out to no end (and took me several hours, to boot).  i finally decided to give in and go pay for it, which i wish i would have done in the first place!  it took like half an hour total, and they printed them out and cut them on the huge industrial cutter, and then they were DONE. 

i took in a jump drive with my file on it, and the only thing i'd advise if you did the same is to make sure any special fonts you used are saved onto your drive, as well - i had to use one of their computers to download Little Days from dafont.  i had someone at the front do it for me using their computers and "better" printers, i didn't use the copy machines. 

in any case, huge stress reliever, it was cheap and fast and cut out a lot of the grotty work that would have annoyed the crap out of me (because i was NOT looking forward to cutting each one out using an exacto knife).    so, long story long, i guess, i'd do it again, but sooner, if i could.  Cheesy

Thanks for the info, Ruby! I kept going back and forth about it. I don't want to have to buy a crap ton of ink, cut all of them, etc. Kinko's here I come!!! Smiley

yeah, MUCH less of a PITA, in my opinion.  in fact, i'm going back today to have them industrial-cut my matting stock (for three dollars... yusss) because it'd take me forever to cut myself.  so kinkos here I come, too.  Cheesy
