This forum is a constant source of inspiration, thanks to all of you, our invites were a huge hit and everyone is super excited about the wedding. The last of our invites went out last week, so I thought I would share some pictures. I truly loved the idea of the MIB, but we knew it would cost us a pretty penny so we decided not to do STDâ€s. Hereâ€s a break down of the costs and websites we used to order supplies:




all labels and tags: $33.59

Brown Kraft Labels - Rectangular - Kraft Outlet - Brown Kraft Labels, Kraft Paper and Cardstock, Kraft Printing Supplies.


100 cylinders: $63.37

Snap-Seal Tubes - Uline


Bottles, shells and sand: $76.21

Message in a Bottle Invitation


Raffia: $15.00

Kraft Paper: $10.00

I bought these at Kateâ€s Paperie


Stamp and stamp pad: $ 12.00

I bought these at Michealâ€s


Total to make 80 MIB's: $210.17 (2.63 each) plus postage


We gave out most of our invites but we had at least 20 we needed to mail….Postage: $2.59 each

We ran out of MIB invites and we had to mail invites to family out of the country so we decided to use the same design but using a flat card.


All supplies bought at paper presentation in nyc, hereâ€s their website paperpresentation.com … each invite came out to $2.43 plus postage…

    • 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.
