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. wink.gif

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

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
