YAY!!! Our window clings are done, and so are the table names/cards!

Window Cling - this will go in everyone's welcome bag. We have like 20 something rooms at Coronado Springs, so this will let everyone know what room has wedding guets!



And table cards - in a 5x7 frame - all characters from The Little Mermaid

Thanks ladies I am really pleased with how they turned out. Here is how I did both of them -

Table names - just printed on regular paper - graphic size 4x6. The we found the purple scrapbooking paper in Michaels on clearance - its actually embossed with little hearts too but you cant see it in the picture. We cut that to 5x7 and mounted the regular paper on to that, then popped it in the frame. Really easy. The hardest part was finding graphics of enough Little Mermaid characters!

Window Clings - I had saved this thread a while back, knowing I wanted to do the clings:
http://www.disboards.com/showthread.php?t=1887426

BUT the instructions in that thread didnt work out so well for me. I did use the same window cling paper (found it in Michaels) and I printed our design out using our inkjet printer. We did have to "flip" the design before printing. (we were using photoshop to create the clings).
But here is where we differ. The original instructions said to spray paint right over the design that was just printed. Well, we did that and the ink ran and blurred the text. It looked awful. Not sure what we did wrong!

SO, we came up with a better idea, that didnt involve spray paint at all. We bought full sheet mailing labels. So we printed out our clings on the window cling paper (again, reversing image) and then put the full sheet label right over what we had just printed. The brand we bought, the adhesive they use is a little grayish, so even though the mailing label itself is white, you are actually using the back of the mailing label (with the adhesive) as your background for the window cling. Then we just cut them down to the proper size. All our guests will have to do is peel off the protective coating from the front of the window cling and pop it in thier window.
Our test one is still hanging on our sliding glass door - been there over a week now, so it definitely sticks well!

Let me know if that doesnt make sense and I'll try to explain it better.

So just a quick update while I am stuck on a boring conference call...

we had our first dance lesson last night!!!!!!
We are using "Cant take my eyes off of you" by Frankie Valli and the 4 seasons. So its not the typical slow song.

We signed up for 4 weeks of private dance lessons at a nearby studio. Our instructor rachael heard the song and said the rhumba worked best for the beginning part, with a triple swing for the middle (fast) part of the song.

I have to admit, it was more fun than expected. Though it will take lots of practice for us to be able to dance without both of us muttering "slow, quick quick slow, quick quick slow" or "triple step, triple step, rock step" everytime we tried to talk to one another or our instructor said something we'd get off beat!

Still, for just our first lesson it went pretty well

The window clings really werent hard - I am not the craftiest person either, but these were simple. I am sure you could do it Samantha! If not, I would be happy to do them for you after our wedding is over

I just caught up with your pj! I love all your plans. Your e-ring is gorgeous! And don't feel ashamed of having 5 cats, I had 3 by the time I was 22, so give me a few more years and I will have more than you! Your invitations turned out great! Your cake tasting pic's made me sooo hungry....what does almond and amaretto taste like?

If I could afford to have a wishes wedding, I think I would choose venue over photography as well. Not that I don't want good pictures, but to have the experience of being married in Epcot is worth gambling with photography IMHO. Plus, I am sure plenty of guests will be snapping away as well

I look forward to more!
