JUNE 2009 BRIDES post
Posted 11 December 2008 - 02:48 PM
So I am working on our Boarding Pass invites, and gosh does it ever take a while!!
I have done a few test runs on them so far because the alignement. There is information on front and back, so they have to align up perfectly so that when you cut them, you don't chop off the back.
Now I am just waiting to get the French version from my mom so that I can start printingall 100 of them, cutting, stamping, etc...
So much work, but oh so worth it in the end (hopefully everyone will love them).
We priced them at a local wedding invitation store, and they wanted to charge us 800$ considering we have bough about 100$ of supplies, we saved ALOT of $$$. :smile:
Made it legal : June 30, 2009

Those of you who are doing OOT bags, are you and your loved ones bringing down all of the stuff OR are you shipping it early? I am thinking about shipping some stuff ahead of time. I am starting to feel really stressed internally!

I am a June 11th bride. Congrats to all who have done so much. I basicly have found and booked a resort. I am terrible at this. So I am glad for all your help. So forgive my stupid questions.
Jennifer I love your monogram, where did you get it? Now for the stupid questions- what all do you use it for? How do you transfer to OOT bags?
Any input on photographers?
I love idea of boarding pass invites but would never be able to make, any place that does at reasonable price? I saw one that used it as itentary for oot bag- cute idea
I just am feeling so overwhelmed and feel like I will never be able to pull this off. I don't have very much time. You guys are doing a great job!!

I am getting married at the Iberostar Del Mar on June 25th. I got my monogram from Sarah Sproulle at Sproullie Designs. I am going to use them for the OOT bags. I ordered a natural canvas bag. I also bought transfer paper so that I can print them on the transfer paper and iron them onto the bags.
I am also using Claudia Rodriguez Photography. The resort charges a $300 fee for using an outside vendor.
The wedding is less than six months away! I am starting to stress out!
