We can just pretend they are being lit, no one will be able to see the flame lit or unlit in the pictures.


Very true - I was thinking of trying to get the flame photoshopped in .

Some odds and ends since I have time...

Firstly, I feel bad because I know another bride used this exact thing, but I bought this as a possible cake topper:



I swear I looked high and low for another Donald and Daisy figure. This is seriously it.

Even though I have all this Mickey stuff in the wedding, I am a big Daisy fan and think I am going to have Donald and Daisy there rather than the MK Photoshoot. My sister says it looks like a birthday cake topper. I am going to ask the ceramics teacher if it is possible to paint over this. Then what I would do is make Daisy's bow darker to match the hot dark pink color of the invites and flowers and then make Donalds jacket grey, the bow and hat black. I dunno.



I got these necklaces for my sisters. They are the same necklace as mine, except sapphire colored rather than the clear crystal. My mom said I shouldn't have the same jewelry as the bridesmaids, but whatever, I want them to look good too.



And finally just another picture of the glorious shoes My photographer added me as a friend on facebook and saw the picture of the shoes there and said she is really excited about them! I can't wait

WOW!!! your invites are AWESOME! I love how you did them! I think they look wonderful! I agree, I have so much more luck finding Disney paper/scrapbooking stuff at Archivers too! I think it might just be a Chicago-land store, I'm not sure though. Did you do all the Caligraphy yourself? They really look great!

Thanks! I just looked and there are Archiver's Stores in a bunch of states. Mostly midwestern though. I would definitely recommend them to people. They are a lot cleaner and better organized than Michael's too.

I have my printer to thank for the caligraphy The font is Bickham Script Pro Semibold

Hi,

The invites are gorgeous, and I'm a big fan of embossing! I found scrapbooking and crafting earlier this year and was fascinated by it. I love the Mickey punch too, very unusual.

Well I have decided on the dessert party menu. Thanks to these boards I asked about customizing a menu

For $22/person we are going to get
-Bowl of Tiramisu
-Mini Cheesecake
-Chocolate Fudge Brownie
-Fruit Custard Tarts
-Petit Key West Lime Tarts
-Fruit Punch, Coffees and Teas
If I couldn't customize, I probably would've gone with the petit classics, but that was $28/person and there was a lot of stuff I didn't want in the menu, so I am really happy they were able to do this for me!

We are also going to have a hosted bar at the DP.

I also booked Beaute Speciale for hair and makeup for me and my bridesmaids. I was really happy with their prompt responses.

WOW! Your invites are gorgeous! I can't even IMAGINE how much time went into planning them, designing them, and then making them. Absolutely beautiful! Receiving one of those really would be like finding a golden ticket.

Your invites are GORGEOUS!! I wish I was that talented! I am going to have to have someone else print mine!! I can photoshop anything, but invitations are a whole different ball game. Speaking of photoshop...if anyone wants to email me their unity candle pics, flames are very easy to put in.

Also, where did you get the mickey necklaces? I am going to have to steal your idea!

The invitations were not that hard. I used Adobe Illustrator, so if you understand Photoshop, it shouldn't be too hard to figure out how to play around in Illustrator.

I got the Mickey necklaces on ebay. http://stores.ebay.com/myfavejewelry this is the seller I got them all from. She ships from Hong Kong, so it takes a while, but I've bought three separate times from her and there has never been a problem. If you don't see what you want, just email her, she probably has it, but just hasn't listed it. I cannot attest to the authenticity of the items (metal or crystal quality), but they look good to me.

Yea embossing is really cool. It did take a little trial and error before I got it right though. Lesson--Versamark ink is the only way to go I tried this other ink with the embossing powders; disaster!

I don't have Illustrator, but I will definitely look into it. I can do all kinds of cool things with pictures, but give me card stock and a printer, and it looks like a 5 yr old tried to do it. I'll have to start practicing!
Thanks for the info on the necklace!! I found the seller, and I am going to order one when payday comes around again!! (I just ordered a ton of Mickey stuff of off ebay!)
Everything looks great. Keep the posts coming.
