    Thank everyone. I am truly open to helping anyone with theirs.

    The initial planning (which means trying to figure everything out, I am so not computer literate) took me days until I was so over it.
    Then once I got the hang of it, it took me:

    2 hours to print and put everyones name on their own template which was a total of around 80 invites x 3 boarding passes, so not bad.

    2 hours to cut them apart (used a great trimmer from Staples or go to Kinkos do it for free)

    45 min. to do all the rounded corners and detail cutting

    45 min. to do all the envelopes (go to microsoft word, help, type in envelopes and there is a template you can type on and then just put your envelopes in the printer and you are done. I will post a picture of my envelopes)

    I haven't completed all the grommets but I am going to assume they won't take that long.

    So all in all, after I knew what I was doing probably about a total of 8 hours when all is said and done.

    Again I am open to assisting anyone who needs it. I loved that I had all the template info and details on how to from this site, which helped me a ton. If you actually just need me to do them for you I can let you know the cost. Otherwise I don't mind helping you for free. I would actually enjoy it.

    I currently left my job so I have a little time on my hands this month, until I start a new job. So let me know.


    Cheers
    Kathy

      I am only ahead of the game because I really have nothing else to think about. We booked our coordinator and photographer and I was so excited I wanted something to do. We also have our first RSVP request due by July 9th, so we can get a rough estimate to budget our wedding off of.

      Don't worry you aren't behind. I am just a crazy planner. I want to not think about wedding stuff for the next 4 months after my STD's are sent out next week.

      Cheers

        We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

        We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

          Is there any way you could send me the templates? LuvGrand@aol.com
          I haven't seen the original forum that said how to do that. Those are SO cute. I have plenty of time to do mine. I won't be getting married until next April but I figured I should at least get the idea now so I don't have to stress about it until later.

              The colors you chose look awesome together and I can't believe you were able to do it all for so cheap! Ok, so I must admit, you have given me some inspiration to try and do this on my own! I have a couple of templates saved already but would you be willing to share yours as well? Also i will definitely have to hit you up with questions as i get into the nitty gritty of doing mine!


              GREAT JOB!

                Thanks again ladies. I will post my template with detailed instructions tomorrow.

                The color theme was built on the idea we wanted our colors to represent a Mexican Fiesta, so our wedding colors are Hot Pink, Aqua, Lime Green and Tangerine. Of course some of them will be down played, like the Lime Green. I didn't want to be traditional and only choose 2 colors and I didn't want them to feel like a formal indoor wedding, I wanted it to feel bright, fun and full of life. Our flowers are Gerbera daisies, so I am excited to see Dazzling Details create our dream wedding.

                  You did a great job!!!!!!! I wanted to do the Boarding Pass STD but I got discouraged. I'm thinking about using them for my actual invites now.
