I love this stuff! You guys have such great ideas! You're all so inspiring!!

We are having the ceremony and reception at places that are already decorated, so we don't have to worry about centerpieces or decorating of any kind. The reception is in an old theatre that now is a night club. My fiance is a musician so we are having friends of his play throughout the night.

Here is my list of things to do.

Save the Dates
Invitations
Thank You Cards
Ceremony Programs
Reception Programs/Table-tent - (To tell people about the bands, the tattoos & the photobooth)
Favors - Caramel wrappers
Favors - Boxes or bags with paper theme
Favors - Temporary Tattoos (all of our paper has these birds on it.)
Favors - Collect props for photobooth
Veil (my sister is in charge of this)
Welcome baskets of hotel guests
Bathroom baskets for reception
Picture frame memorials for my mom & dad, his grandparents.

Possible projects
Hankies for my sister, his mom
Photo slideshow
Aisle runner


The Tattoos will look something close to this.


I'll take picts of the save the dates & invitations soon!

Yep, that was what I meant!  Wink And the little floral was nabbed from the folded card sample you sent to me, TheBon. The envelopments were looking a bit blah, but I didn't want to use the large graphic again, so when I looked back at the samples I remembered that that little bit would be perfect! I am soo happy I worked that gocco into the wedding budget!

Love it! Love Gocco too. I took a class at Paper Source a long time ago and always wanted my own. I should have budgeted one into my wedding! Why didn't I think of that? You're very clever.

*frustrated scream* I hate trying to draw things in Microsoft Word! It's hideous. This is the La Porte, Texas area, and a lot of those streets are actually curvy, not so linear. I couldn't figure out the stupid curvy line thing in Word.
I think I'm just gunna try to do it in Paint. *sigh* Sorry guys. I just needed to vent a little. :/

Why not use Google map, screen capture it and edit it to your liking?

Do you have a buddy who can draw in AutoCAD? My best friend took a Google map, outlined it in AutoCAD, and sent the image to me as a picture so I could use it in my invitations. The map turned out very spiffy looking.

What editing would need to be done? With google maps you can redraw your own route if the one that is automatically generated doesn't work. So if there is construction you want your guests to avoid or something like that, you can adjust the map before taking the screen shot.
