It's All About .... The Dresses!

Saturday January 8, 2011 ... my daughter took delivery on this:

Yes! It's her wedding gown ...  and no ... there won't be any sneek peeks posted  here at the Tator Patch!

Wondering what that blue booklet is hanging on the bag? ... It's this:

Paper: Martha Stewart Playful Blue Stack Flowers: Prima Bling: Basic Grey
 Stamp: Close To My Heart, Card Commentary Ribbon: Generic (?)
This is just an 8.5x11 cover page I put together quick {15 minutes tops} and the rest of the pages look like this:

In her quest for bridesmaid dresses, my daughter searches the internet and calls me with a website name and style number. She also pages through magazines and wedding vendor brochures for ideas.

I print the photo snippets, then cut, sort and tape them down to a neutral cardstock (in this case, light gray). This can be done with the magazine and brochure clippings as well.

We write the style number, color, price, and any other pertinent information on the photo snippet.

One standard hole punch to the upper left corner and the page is ready to be strung onto the single binder ring. Done deal!

We're finding it helpful to have some idea of what we're looking for before we walk into a store. There are so many choices! Now she has an easy way to share her style selections with her bridesmaids and dress shop staff. Hopefully, this will make this next important decision a little easier. After all, what's a wedding without some really great dresses?
