    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! :)

            I used my boarding passes for STDs and Passports for invites. I didn't want to make my invites formal.. just fun and exciting.

                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.

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