- Wedding: April 2018 - SLS Las Vegas
I am constantly amazed by the amount of vitriol exhibited by some of the people commenting in these threads. It’s disgusting behaviour. Some people are just raised with no class at all.
I think your ornaments are amazing and there’s no way I would chuck it out if I received them. My cousin’s fiance did ‘message in a bottle’ invitations (before they were common) and even though they’re essentially useless, we kept them because she’d made so much effort and they were so lovely. Yours actually have a purpose! Your guests can bring them out year after year, hang them on the tree and be reminded of what a lovely wedding you had. We all spend money on stuff that may be considered less than ‘necessary’ so who cares? Best of luck to you x
Cool STD’s. I have to be honest though, if I was a recipient of one of these my expectations would extend far beyond a wedding budgeted at 30k. It’s a strong precedent to kick off with.
To keep with the theme for your invites you could do something like this and layer it with an object or image relevant to your event.
I just want to say do people not realize 30-40k IS A LOT OF EFFING money? It hate that I am spending that for 8 hours. That is $83 a minute! Thankfully I am paying for it completely myself so I don’t feel guilty.
I think it looks very nice!
These are cool AF. I envy you your patience and creativity.
I hope you don’t let the snarky comments from other bees discourage you from posting a recap this spring after your wedding. It looks like it’s going to be amazing.
@nikbee “you do realize glitter is plastic. So the thousand of girls that use glitter belly bands are just as wasterful as I am. Did you go to the grocery store this week? Did you throw away any plastic? This is one event and I’m not going to feel bad for my esthetic. ”
Look I get it, You’re going to have a lot of plastic involved in your wedding, but as a scuba diver it seriously breaks my heart reading your comment.
Try to give a shit about your plastic footprint in the world, and try to think about ways that you can reduce that footprint.
What’s done is done, but please take the time to watch how plastic is hurting our oceans, and maybe consider making positive changes from here on out. <3
There are clearly many devisive feelings about my save the dates and I am not going to feel bad about any one of it. Think what you want about me but in the words of Erika Jane,”How many fucks do I give…. None, Not one”
sorry it hurts your heart so I suggest you need read this post anymore.
Totally heartless towards the countless people and animals being affected by such a huge issue.
wow. just wow.
I bet you left all your trash behind at burning man too. *sigh* 🙁
I read this whole thread and all I wanted to know was what a glitter belly band was.
Googled and was super disappponted, it doesn’t actually go on your belly.
ETA: Was the glitter tits uncomfortable after a while? Was it hard to remove? I always wonder when I see the full/partial body glitter looks.
im not letting anyone get me down. They made me so happy to make and I can’t wait until my next project!
$30k on a wedding isn’t much above normal. In fact the average wedding in 2016 cost $35k, according to theknot.com’s annual survey. https://www.theknot.com/content/average-wedding-cost-2016 Nevada’s average was only $23k, but of course people on forums are from all over–including the east coast where the average wedding cost is roughly $60k (eyeball average of the map’s east coast numbers).
Not saying $30k isn’t a ton of money–I still careen a little bit when I think about the $20k I could have spent on.. anything else.. (not that i’d change my wedding at all, but you know.. it’s a lot of money! And it was $30k if you include honeymoon and rings..) Just saying most bees, especially bees who’ve already had their weddings, know how quickly $30k goes. And hearing that you spent at least $1k on postage for STDs must have made a lot of bees think you’d go over-budget or run out of money. Now that you’ve increased your budget by $10k+, plus favors, I’m having an easier time seeing how you’ll make it work–I assume other bees who originally replied to your $30k budget would feel that way too.
