    Ok, so I went yesterday and ordered our invitations. I thought they were going to take a few weeks to come in...but the guy at the copy shop told me they'll be here by Wed, Friday the latest. I'm so excited!!!!!!!

    We fell in love with this invitation months ago and actually went to get prelimary prices as far back as Feb.

    Thank god for this forum!!! Most of the actual invitation wording came from it! The little poem on the inside flap, I wrote myself (it's tri-fold). I also plan to get Aqua paper and cut it slightly smaller than the invitations and put the travle info on that and include it. Anyway...I found a site online that has the invitations and lets you input your info and gives you an instant proof!!! So, here's what it should look like :) I think my spacing is off

      Ok, so I just realized a few things...first, you can't tell that there are actually hints of aqua in the waves...

      Also, the poem reads -
      In A Gazebo
      By The Sea
      Is Where Our Wedding Day Will Be
      So Fly With Us
      To A Far Off Land
      And Witness Desiree
      Give Chris Her Hand

      And the invitation -
      In a Tropical Paradise Surrounded by Family and Friends
      With the Waves Crashing and the Palm Trees Swaying

      Desiree Middle Last
      &
      Christopher Middle Last

      Invite You to Share the Sun, Sea and Memories of Their Wedding Day

      Saturday, January Seventeenth
      Two Thousand and Nine
      At Two O’clock in the Afternoon

      In a Gazebo Overlooking the Beach

          Thanks! I'm Glad you like it. It's actually one of the first things I came up with :) Even before finding this forum!! LOL

          I figured I'd post my invite and wording, becaus I know when I was trying to find wording I had a HARD time. So I figured I'd put it out here in case another bride wants to "borrow" it LOL

          The majority of the invite came from Cheese_Diva :) I just added the line about the waves & Treens :)

            Oh, and I'm also planning on sending guests luggage tags a week or two before the trip.

            On one side I'm going to put "Fly With Us to a Far Off Land..." and the other side will have the places for their info (name, address, etc)

                    Those are great. I love all of the wording you used. So nice to be able to check something off the to-do list!
