People liked searching through titles that meant something to them and there was plenty of space for a message on the back. Could double as an address book too as a lot of our quests wrote their contact info on it too. Very sturdy with bright vivid colors.
Will you be my bridesmaid cards: AAnista Designs: www.etsy.com/shop/AnistaDesigns">http://www.etsy.com/shop/AnistaDesignsI purchased these cards to ask my MOH and bridesmaids to be a part of my day. They were beautifully crafted and comical at the same time. My girls loved them and I was proud to give the cards to them.
Superior Fireworks: www.superiorfireworks.com/">www.superiorfireworks.comI ordered the 20inch sparklers and they were fantastic. They kept burning long after my husband and I had already left and gave off a large glow that looks stunning in photos. It was beautiful to walk through. They shipped quickly (came within 2 days) and it didn’t cost anything extra. My bridesmaids did say they were a little difficult to get to light.
Garden Ridge: http://gardenridge.com/
Of all the places in Columbus that I searched, Garden Ridge had the best deals. The candles burned relatively evenly and I had the choice between white and ivory. They had a nice selection of colors if you wanted to go with a pop color. They didn’t have a huge variety of sizes though – just your standard ones. Because of that I ordered some of my candles online.These candles were competitively priced and shipped within two days. They came quick and were all in tact. They burned evenly too. Make sure you know the exact size you want. I didn’t measure exactly what I was looking for and got smaller candles than I intended.

Groomsmen gifts: A
Innovation Workshop: www.etsy.com/shop/InnovationWorkshop">http://www.etsy.com/shop/InnovationWorkshopWe purchased the bottle cap catchers that we had personalized with each of the groomsmen’s names and nick names. They loved them! It was actually something useful and fun. These were made of quality materials and arrived within a week. The shop owner was so easy to work with and super fast.
Bridesmaids gifts: A
Coach Outlet – Jeffersonville: www.tangeroutlet.com/">http://www.tangeroutlet.com/They had amazing deals. I was able to score my bridesmaids the larger wristlet for only $33 each including tax. And the girls were shocked they got something so nice! They handed out 30% off coupons at the door that they were constantly recycling. I bought them in July so they might still be doing the same thing. Heads up though, I had 7 bridesmaids and they limit the number of purses you can buy of the same style to 3. I had my mom and girlfriend go with me and buy the other ones and I paid them each cash.

My little nice loved this beautiful pearl necklace. It was designed specifically for her age so it fit perfectly and was an affordable gift for a 4-year-old. The shop owner gave me excellent service and we received the necklace in less than a week.
