jenny, i was wondering what the dimensions are of your passport invitations (they are super cute by the way) and if you used a template from the forum to do them. how did you print them, at home or someplace like kinkos? and how did you make the little holes for attaching the ribbon?

Super cute! I was thinking about doing something similar but scared of getting myself into a huge DIY by myself.. I love paperandmore.com I just ordered paper there for our invites. Your passports are beautiful, you have inspired me to get cracking on mine!!!

I did use the same size as Becks' (5"Hx7"W) although I deleted everything and started from scratch with a blank template.

I printed everything at home. I had extra steps since my cover was dark pink & my printer doesn't print doublesided. If I was to print on the pink, nothing would show up unless it was black - so for this I had to print on my white paper and glue my inside front & back covers to the pink. The inside pages (Invitation wording, Passport Info, Accommodations, & Stamps with Cancun facts) were also glued together to look doublesided. This wasn't too hard since they're the same size. I had little trimming to do. Originally, I stapled the first 2.. I hated the way it looked and I just couldn't get the staples straight. So I decided to make 2 holes instead and put a ribbon through to hold the pages together. Believe it or not, I just happened to have one of my FI's tools on my desk that was PERFECT to make holes. If you want something specific, this is good: A.C. Moore - Tim Holtz Retractable Craft Pick- I loved it - it gave my invites a nice lil kick to them with the silver.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
