    I absolutely love the idea of the passport invitations, but I am getting married in Hawaii. I wanted them to say something on the front like "Passport to Paradise." Is it stupid if I have passport invitations even though it isn't necessary to have a passport to get to Hawaii? I didn't want people getting confused...believe it or not, I have been asked by some guests if they need to get a passport for our wedding.

      I like the passport invitations and maybe on one of your pages you can put "Passport not required to travel to Hawaii". Or something to that affect. But I think it will confuse some people.

        Hey!

        I did STD Boarding Passes and Passport Invite Booklets (only for those that are coming) done professionaly by Prim and Pixie - my wedding is also in Hawaii - all of my U.S. guests know that you don't need a real passport but we went with a travel theme and everyone LOVED them.

        Here are a couple pictures on their blog...

          Wow!! Those are sooo nice! I like this idea too . . . but it looks pretty pricey!

            That's a good point - instead of doing passport invitations, you could do boarding passes for a "tickets to paradise' theme.

              Thank you for all the advice! Alyssa, I absolutely love your passport invite booklets! My plan was to do both the boarding passes and the passport invite booklets as well...I saw some in a magazine a while back & I fell in love. I agree, if I am sticking to the travel theme, then people most likely won't question the whole passport to Hawaii thing. Thanks again!

                why not! its your wedding!
                but there is a company Blue Moon that we ordered our invitations from. they are on the expensive side but I am sure you can mimic it. It is shaped into boarding passes but a bookstyle of 3-5 pages including invite, itinerary, story of us, and rsvp. its actually cuter than a passport. you can do the passport for a program? I have seen beautiful passports as well but I think boarding passes were a hit with my friends. We used baggage tags fro our STD.

                    Do you have any pictures of your invitaitons? I have never seen these, so I would love to check them out. It sounds like a great idea though. Thank you for the advice!
