    Does anyone know where I might be able to get a custom cake topper?  After attempting to use my googlefu I'm thinking I'll probably have to have a custom one created.  We have a whole thing about bears in our relationship and our 'theme' is music so I was hoping to find a cake topper of bears sharing headphones/listening to music but, as I suspected, no such luck.

    Any ideas?

    Also - does anyone have any ideas for invitations?  We're a ways off for needing them but I've poked around on the internet and the simplest one I've found that we liked was about 600 for 200 invitations (alone, no response cards or thank you cards.)  We're happy to do it at home ourselves but we need an invite we like first.  We've looked at Michael's and didn't find anything we like.  Our colors are Purple & White.

    LGM22: 
    For a custom caketopper I would look at http://www.etsy.com/
    There are tons and tons of customized caketoppers on that site.

    Invites:  I totally DIY'd my invites, and I bought all of my cardstock at http://www.cardsandpockets.com/

    HTH!

    I would sign up for an etsy account (required to purchase anything on the site anyways, so might as well do it now).  Then I would search for caketoppers, then narrow that search for bears + music, and see what pops up.  Then you can make the ones you like the most your favorites by clicking the little heart icon and it will save that info for you.  You can converse with any of the sellers if you have any questions, kinda like a personal messages on FB.  And when you decide what you want to buy, you click the "buy" button on the item page.  Usually you'll continue any necessary convo with the seller until all the customized stuff is figured out.

    Come to think of it, Etsy also has a bunch of vendors who design/print and/or assemble invites.  You could look on there for those as well.

    A word of warning, Etsy is SUPER addicting! <img src="http://cdn.cl9.vanillaforums.com/downloaded/ver1.0/content/scripts/tinymce/plugins/emotions/images/smiley-wink.gif" border="0" alt="Wink" title="Wink" />

    Is there any brides out there who had airbrush makeup done for their wedding? I feel like I would like to know my makeup is going to stay put, but I don't want it to look fake or cakey. I just want to know what othe people's experiences have been. Any opinions would help! Thank you!

    I LOVE etsy. I was an etsy virgin too until right before the wedding.. Then I ordered 4 different things from the site and all were GREAT experiences! You'll love it :)

    Phonehome- I didn't get my makeup airbrushed. I really wanted to and tried really hard to find a place (and someone on here actually found me a place in Bellingham near my venue) but they wouldn't open on Sundays for my Sunday wedding. :(

    I LOOOOOVE airbrush makeup. The stuff doesn't come off so you never have to worry about smearing, sweating, crying, etc. LOVE. Sephora used to have a great machine and they did a great job at doing airbrush makeup with it, but I don't think they have it anymore.
    I HIGHLY recommend it though, if you can find a place!

    I had airbrush for my wedding makeup.  Typically, I get shiny (greasy) REALLY fast and easy, but with airbrush foundation, it kept it totally under control.  I also had fake lashes, but everything looked so natural.

    I had Pacific Artistry as my MUA/H vendor, and I had a good experience, here's their site:  <a href="http://www.pacificartistry.com/" rel='nofollow'>http://www.pacificartistry.com/</a>

    really? It's so pretty there... Does the zoo have a room in their aquarium? Because that would be incredible...   You may have to just go with a hotel ceremony...
