My boarding pass invites are finally done! All I have to do now is put a stamp on them and send them off!


I read and re-read I think every thread on here before I actually started creating my own. I used pieces and ideas from so many different people there is no way I could thank everyone individually! So I wanted to start by thanking everyone before me who has posted a thread with their versions…chance are I probably used some piece of them!


Here are directions on how I did mine. Please feel free to ask any questions!


1.)The actual designing of mine was pretty easy. Be sure to download fonts onto your computer before trying to use my template (attached). I downloaded the fonts from dafont.com. I used Tropicana BV and wmtrees1 although there are many other ones out there to use! I did have to adjust the actual color of the fonts I used several times to get the green and pink printed out the way I wanted it to look


2.)I had them printed at Kinkoâ€s and used 110lb card stock that I bought at Wal-Mart because it was cheaper there!


3.)Cutting….this took FOREVER! I think I worked on cutting in bits and pieces for a week straight. I used several cutting tools including a corner punch, a small rotary cutter, xacto knife, small scissors and paper cutter.

4.)I used a Crop-a-dile tool to attach the passes together with a colored grommet. I finished that off with the orange and pink ribbon on the corner.

5.)The ticket envelopes were actually easier than I thought they would be. I really wanted one where the passes would slide into the ticket jacket. I used a template (although for the life of me I canâ€t remember who that came from either!) found here and just printed the template onto the green cardstock then cut out and glued together from there.


6.)I ordered magnets from Vistaprint and then splurged and bought matching outer mailing envelopes to match. (which are not pictured but they are just white envelopes with the beach scene in the corner)

I am not a crafty person at all and actually I had fun with this little project and overall I think it turned out pretty good! I will definatley be doing some other DIY wedding stuff in the future! Plus I really did save a lot of money even though I splurged on a couple things (envelopes from vistaprint and the crop-a-dile tool, I really could have done without those but I am glad I didnâ€t!) I only made 50 STDâ€s and originally started by stuff for closer to 100…so needless to say I have some paper and magnets left over but I am sure I can find somewhere to use them before the wedding!


Here is a cost breakdown

•110lb white card stock (100pack from Wal-Mart) - $5.77

•Pink and Green cardstock (100 of each from discountcardstock.com) - $34

•Paper cutter (from Michaels and used 50% off coupon) - $20

•Crop-A-dile tool (from Michaels and used 50% off coupon) - $14

•Rotary cutter, corner punch and Xacto knife - $16

•Glue, 3 types of ribbons and grommets - $13

•VistaPrint Magnets and Envelopes - $29

•Printing at Kinkoâ€s (50 copies) - $27


Total = $158.77

About $3.17 for each one

    • 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.
