After taking a break from wedding planning due to finals and moving and what not... we jumped back into it this weekend and completed our boarding pass invites!

 

A special thanks to all the wonderful ladies who have shared their ideas and templates. : ) I have taken bits and pieces from so many people and could never have done it on my own. They aren't as "professional" as some... but I like the, they fit the budget, and it is a great feeling to be able to say I did them.

 

 

Anyways... just thought I would share. : )

Thanks. After seeing yours from Sarah, I was really disappointed I had already bought my supplies and had somewhat started them. Yours turned out so beautiful! I was actually so upset that mine would look horrible - that Sean told me to just go ahead and order them from her. But since we had already spent the money on supplies and really have no extra room in the budget ... I just decided to follow through with mine. They are no where near Sarah's... but I was pretty impressed with myself (totally not a DIY - type person).

I just used a regular size piece of carstock and folded it into threes. I used a ruler to make the edges nice - but that was a total pain. I believe there is something you can buy from Michael's that makes creases easier... but was already half-way through when I learned that.

Then I just cut off a corner of the paper so that the invite would be visible... and then used double stick tape along the opposite edge to make the pocket. (originally i lined the top of the pocket w/ double stick tape but it made it difficult to get the invite in/out). Then I used the corner cutter on all the edges to make them similar to the BPs.

Lastly, I used a large palm tree punch I found at Michael's. Not sure if mine was just defective or if the cardstock was too thick - but this part was a major pain. It required you to press down really hard - I could barely do it - so Sean did most of it. But I liked how it looked in the end and then didn't feel the need to print anything on the pocketfold.

Hope that sorta makes sense.

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
