I think the dress situation will have a way of working itself out, the Romona dress is beautiful, maybe you could take a cue from Lurkyloo and check to see if you could find it wholesale on ebay.

Plans are sounding great...keep up the good work!
I've searched for the dress on e-bay but can't find any Ramona Keveza dresses at all! Any suggestions?
Here's some pixie dust for your DF's job search

By the way, if you hop over to my PJ I apologize, I am WAY behind in updating it, but I am planning on doing that right away!!! Look forward to hearing more!!
Thanks for reading along! I'm sorry to hear the boards are giving you trouble...it's been almost 5 years since I took them so I don't know if I have any great advice... I think it was so traumatic I blocked it out Just keep your chin up- I'm sure you'll pass this time around I'll send you a PM with any advice I can think of!

Glad you found my PJ! I'm so sorry to hear about your jobs... this economy is horrible. It cracks me up because they keep saying how nursing is such a great profession and that healthcare is the field to be in right now and I get laid off Luckily it seems to be worse at my hospital than at others and I was able to find another job but I know it's rough out there! Here's some pixie dust for you as well

Invitations/ NEED HELP FROM CRAFTY PEOPLE!

I just may have to! DF and I are going back to visit my parents in April so I think if I haven't found a dress I like better by then I may get it! First I should probably go atleast look again though

So earlier I posted those coconut invites that I liked but didn't want to spend the money on...

So I had thought I would just do some card and pocket invites which I love as well. But since I'm not crafty these would be alot of work for me as well... so I thought maybe I should just try the coconut ...

I have searched and searched online and now I've found these coconuts for $2 each (the originals were $22 painted or $11 unpainted )

Then I plan to put additional info and RSVP card rolled up inside the coconut like this... and put some disney confetti inside as well!

I think the painting on these is really pretty but probably too complicated for me

So I will probably practice really hard and just try to master one like this

Now I am not very creative here so I need some help... do you ladies think I could use these to make my own? I know I would need to sand them so the surface is smooth for painting... and then I would have to try to be artistic and actually paint them !
What I need help with is the HOW part of all of this-
1)What would you recommend to sand them with?
2)What type of paint would I need?

I was just going to order one to play with it but it seems shipping is $13 no matter how many you get so I might as well get them all at one time (with a few extra for mess ups) but I don't want to waste my money if I'm not going to be able to figure it out So PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE those of you who are crafty any hints of how I could make this a reality I would appreciate it!

I'd try a low grit sand paper and just go really slow to see what you have underneath. After that acrylic paint would work...let that dry use a fine tip marker to write in your information...cover with glossy modge podge. It's a decoupage paint which should seal the paint job (I only say should b/c I dont know how it will work with coconuts...but I've used it on other stuff and it worked well) HTH

Adelia,

I am so excited about your wedding and your details! I LOVED Sunset Pointe (and get nostalgic about how great it was even though we just had our super big, super expensive, super wonderful Wishes wedding!)

And you used pictures of my bouquet! I'm so flattered! But, I LOVE the modification ideas you have. The mango and fushia are gorgeous. And after seeing my hair floral, Green Cymbidium orchids are MY favorite flower, too. And I never liked Orchids before! Go figure.

I have to admit, I loved you in the third dress. You have a great figure for it. I think the second was too much stuff! You are so beautiful, you can pull off stunning in a less flashy way! IMHO!

And I have a similar "error in judgment" story. Very similar, actually...even down to the "not-the-Christian-guy-I-thought-because-he's-cheating" part. But, I am SOO blessed this time! Even though he's not here right now (WAAH!)

Can't wait to hear more.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU I have never even heard of glossy modge podge but it makes sense to put something on to seal it. Can I get that at any craft store like Michaels?

Heidi- I am sooo happy you found my PJ ! Thank you for all your kind words you are too sweet! Your Escape TR really helped seal my decision to go with Sunset Pointe and as you can see I have borrowed a few things from you Glad you don't mind! Maybe DF and I will do a Wishes vow renewal some day down the road then I can steal all your ideas from your Wishes wedding as well Glad you're back and can't wait for your TR but so sorry your new DH is gone When will he be home again? Where are you stationed again? Germany? Thanks for reading along!

Thanks I'll let you know how they turn out... hopefully I find some hidden artistic talent so they don't look like a 2 year old painted them!

Glossy Modge Podge

You can get modge podge at micheals (look out for their 40% off coupons) definately order a couple more than you think you need to practice and once you see how easy-or difficult the outside of the coconut comes off you can adjust your sand grit accordingly.

Glad I could help! I can't wait to see them!

I think you can definitely do it. HEre is how I would go about doing it:

I would buy the sharpie markers that are fine point for the writing.

Then I would get acrillic paint from the craft store and attempt to paint it.

The clear gloss would have to go over everything after They sell this almost anywhere. Get a find brush to paint the paint palm tree. I would use a stencil Find one on the internet you like, cut it out and trace it OVER the painted coconut...hope this helps!

Idea-stealing is why we're on this site! And yes, I'm in Germany (Hohenfels). We're hoping for a late summer return!

I love your invite idea!! You might say your not creative - but this is a very creative way of inviting people!

Instead of handwriting the coconuts could you use a transfer? Or get somebody to write on them a steady hand!

I normally consider myself to be a pretty crafty person, but I don't know how to go about the coconut invites, they are super cute though. How many are you going to be making? maybe you could print the stuff out on a thin paper (like mulberry...they come in all different colors too) and then just decoupage that onto the coconut. Then all you would have to paint is the tree decoration. That paper also tears jagged like so you could use layers of it to create you colorful beach look. Hope this helps!!
