      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 both
          Mel - they look GREAT!!! the STD look a lot like mine - did i send you the template?

          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

                      am also playing around with the boarding pass and passport idea; would love you start with your templates if you're sharing
