Let's Share!

so as most of you already know JackieG and i are sharing the cost of a super cute but expensive (for a one-time use item) cake topper


and kristeen, starg8zer and i are sharing an exquisite Dana Saylor bracelet


soooo - just wanted to suggest to all the lovelies here if there's something you want - but do not want to pay the full price - let's save this thread and keep it alive by asking each other to share


if there are 3 or 4 soon-to-be Mrs Ws or Mrs Bs who want a shiny sparkly cake topper - but dont want to spend $100 for it - if your dates are far away enough to allow for shipping - why not share the expense??


or if you need favor boxes or cello bags, but you only need like 100 instead of 500, why not buy in bulk (for the discount) and share the cost??  www.uline.com has great prices


if anyone is doing a black/white/green wedding after august, my "i Do" letters are up for grabs


just a thought since we're all trying to cut costs everywhere...

ohh jackie... if you seriously have some left over I will totally pay you for the boxes plus shipping. That would be way cheaper than ordering my own huge box of them. I was thinking I was gonna have to order the big box of them and I just imagined myself giving every single gift I give to someone in the next 5 years in a gable box, hahaha.

Yeah its the 5th.


I think I need like 30, and they come in containers of 100. I think the containers are $50 or so, but its like $20 for shipping :( I also don't really want 100 gable boxes... !!!


How many do you need Jackie? D1rty? Maybe I could order them and we could all share....

This is where I was thinking of getting mine http://www.mrtakeoutbags.com/store/ftcnkgb090606.html


I wanted the 9x6x6 ones. I have no idea what I am putting in there yet- I made up a little "our favorite places to eat, get coffee, hang out" booklet and have those ready to put in. I was thinking some water, snacks, maybe a map of LA... directions to the rehearsal/welcome dinner... ??

I will have 10 white roses and baby's breath pomanders and 14 centerpieces after my July 19th wedding in WI. I would love someone to get some use out of them after me for a little bit of compensation! Pics in my bio!

 - 144 red votives


 - 6"-101/2" clear glass hurricanes


 - Red Swarovski "C" cake topper


 - 10 strng iron sheperd hooks


 - about 20 different candy jars for candy buffet


 - red medium size envelopes (great for save the dates)


 - maybe leftover flip flops -


 - Sara Gabriel "breanna" hair pin (PIB) I may not part with this but I also don't know if I will ever wear it again so I might.


- 10 hanging vases for shepherd hooks


 - probably my card box


 - ring pillow and flower girl basket


 - Thank you parasol (I think someone was interesed already. I'll check my PM's)
