I ended up going to a local print shop because my printer at home wasn't able to handle the 80lbs card stock for the boarding passes. That ended up being really good since they found the ticket enclosures in the right color pre-made for a decent price. (I was going to use one of the BDW templates). Our colors are pool and navy with accents of red and orange (mostly from flowers) so I wanted to stick with those colors.

The Gory Details



Navy Brochure Enclosures

Compass stamp

Embossing ink and powder

Heat gun (Marvy® Uchida Embossing Heat Tool)

Rounder Corner Paper Puncher


The outer cover is a navy brochure folder with a single pocket inside. I embossed a compass onto the front and rounded the corners to finish it out. The compass was a stamp I found at Michaels and I used transparent embossing ink & powder.



Boarding Passes

80lb card stock - natural white (kind of an off-white color)

Rotary Trimmer with both a straight edge blade and a perforator blade (Fiskars® Portable Rotary Trimmer)

Rounder Corner Paper Puncher


Glue Spots - HERMA® Dotto™ Permanent


I used staples to attach the boarding passes to each other and then used glue spots to attach the bottom pass to the enclosure. The Dotto dots dispenser made it super easy with no mess at all.



RSVP Envelope - 4bar Pool - Paper Source

Invitation Envelope - #10 in natural white (matching the boarding passes)


We had the printer print our address on the RSVP envelopes and the back flap of the outer envelopes. We used our printer at home to address the envelopes to our guests.



The whole time I was working on this project I regretted not just ordering something from a catalog. Now that they are done and out there, I am SOOO glad I did this!! Thanks to everyone here for the encouragement and ideas. I couldn't have done this without you!

    • 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.
