My Boarding Pass STDs and Passport Invites

Recommended Posts

The both look great! Your guests are going to be so excited to receive them!

 

Where did you find the palm tree on the front of your passport? I've been trying to find it for weeks!

Whew...lots of questions to answer! Thanks for the comments. I had my shower on Sunday and a few people had already received the invites and they couldn't stop talking about all of the stationery that we have done for the wedding. They thought it was so great to receive something completely different instead of the plain old invite. I had fun doing them, even though FH was cussing my name the entire time because I made him cut stuff out.

Would it be too much to ask for you to provide your template on bothhuh.gif I love how they turned out and have been thinking of doing the same, but I don't even know where to begin =(

I will work on getting you a template. I don't know how to make a template, but I will attach my document to a post when I get home. I just made it in word. I originally used a template from someone else but I tweaked it a lot about the only thing that stayed the same was the part with our picture.

i love the paper inside the passports - great!

 

are you sending the STD now and then the invites in a couple months?

I have no clue who sent me a template. I think I just downloaded it off of one of the threads. I really like someone's idea about putting a map of the country as the background. I'm so bad I can't remember who's idea it was, but they used the map of Hawaii.

 

We sent out the STDs last Nov and just got out the invites last week.

I just did a search on the internet for palm tree. I think it was a different color, so I had to go into power point and I made the background transparent and used the color hues to change the color of the picture. I will also try to attach the picture to the post I am going to do when I get home with the templates. If it doesn't show up PM me and I can send it to you through e-mail.

Here are the attachments for the passport invites with the RSVP.

 

I double-sided printed slides 1 and 2 (covers and inside of covers) on white cardstock and printed slides 3 and 4 on regular printer paper. I then cut each of them out and stapled them in the crease where I folded the papers in half.

 

For the RSVP postcards I used the Avery matte white postcards number 3380. I used textured but that was because that was all I could find. My recommendation is to not follow the instructions that come with the postcards and just use this template or the ones that are already built into word.

 

NOTE**** these files are not templates, I have no clue how to make them templates. I don't know if this makes a difference when you try to rearrange stuff, but hopefully it works for you all. Or if someone could tell me how to make them templates I can redo this post

Here are the STD files

 

We printed each background first and then printed the wording directly onto the already printed background. We couldn't figure out how to make the background stick and still keep our words visible even after we did all of the arrangements of pushing it to the back, bringing text forward, etc. The computer savy people can comment on this and are probably laughing because it is something super simple! HAHA oh well.

 

For the holders we went to Kinkos and bought the paper we wanted and had them fold the paper into brochures. I think it cost maybe 5 cents to have it done per sheet. We thought it was better than us trying to fold them. Then we cut a slit in them for the passes to go and glued the bottom and on the side so the passes wouldn't fall out.

WOW, really nice, great job.

 

(now, do you want to do mine?)

 

I really liked the bit with the raised palm tree image on your ticket holder.

 

Did you use special coloured or textured paper for your passport cover and insides, or was it all plain?

And finally, here is the palm tree for you, JamaicaBride. I thought I would include some of the other ones I used too. Like I said before, I had to mess around with them in word and change the coloring and transparency of the background to get them to work, but they finally looked the way I wanted them to.

I found these too which I think would work great for monograms but I don't know what the rules are for copyrights.

Plain white cardstock for the cover and inside cover. Regular white printer paper for the inside pages

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
