Thanks for the nice feedback; we really enjoyed putting them together.


As for the date mix-up, well, since there's no way to fix it now, we figure it's much better to laugh than to bemoan what we can't change. =) Besides, this way we can toast all our guests and thank them for coming all the way to Mexico just to celebrate our one-year anniversary. wink.gif

A few things: It's hard to tell the colors from these pics, but the printing is brown with navy accents on light blue paper. Oh, and we loved the folder-pocket paper because it made us think of sand. Hee!


The invites are 95% post-consumer recycled paper (yes, I'm one of THOSE people, lol), and largely DIY. We bought the paper from someone who designs invitations, decided which colors we liked, which ribbon to combine it with, and then bought the starfish off eBay. Then, I designed the different components in Photoshop: invitation, schedule, RSVP, and accommodations (not shown). My friend's mother runs a small print shop, so I sent the Photoshop files off to her, she calibrated the colors, printed them up, and sent them to me. We spent a few hours gluing them all together, and voila!


Warning, the pics are a bit big, but I figured that this way you could actually read what everything says. :P Hope you like 'em!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
