Hey ladies, I'm confused so I hope you can all help me.

 

First off I've never been to any destination wedding and I'm planning on getting married in Hawaii. I've always thought the traditional wedding invites and save the dates were beautiful (it's all I've ever known of!) But ever since I came onto this site and I saw all of your cute creative invites (passports and plane tickets) I'm totally wanting to do them!! I don't think they're as traditional "elegant" looking but I think they are so cute and fit with the destination theme!! It's fun and a great way to tie in all the elements that are helpful with a destination wedding such as activities to do, weather, where to stay, etc.

 

What do you think?? Tradition invites (and STDs) or a fun (and helpful informational) passports and plane tickets invites?? TIA!!

I love the boarding pass and passport invites! They are so much fun! There are ladies who went the DIY route and had the most polished invitations. If you're not a DIY person, there are some great invitation vendors who specialize in DW invites. I made DIY boarding passes for the STDs. Everyone really liked them but they weren't as polish as I had hoped. For invites, I just ordered traditional ones from weddingpaperdivas. It would be a disaster if I attempted to make passport invites and I wanted to keep costs low.

 

You should totally do the passport invites! They look SO cool! :)

We did the boarding pass STD, Passport for our update information and Message in Bottle for our Invites. You can do the travel ideas and make them elegant.

It is a "At Home Reception". We have 2 guests list; one list is invited to the wedding & AHR, the other guest list is for those we are only inviting to the AHR. wink.gif

I have a couple places you can look at all kinds of boarding pass STDs; some are more formal, some are not.

    • 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.
