I just received my invitations from cards and pockets and I absolutely love them! What is my dilemma, you ask? Well, I am trying to figure out what info I want in the pocket portion. I am doing the RSVP card and envelope, but still deciding on the other 2 items. For those that have done these before, would you mind sharing what you did? I was thinking about travel info for one, but not sure. If you have any sort of templates or wording, that would be very helpful as well!

 

Also, for the outside I know people has used ribbon to close the invitation. I am wanting to use raffia ribbon somehow and then put a starfish on the outside. However, I am pretty crafty challenged and I'm not sure how to do this where people can still open the dang thing! If anyone has any ideas, I would love to hear them!

I will be sure to post the final result....good or bad!!! haha

My invitations had a pocket and the only thing I put in them was the response card. I have seen other girls put travel info or welcome party/dinner info, or a map of the resort. As far as the raffia, you could tie it in a bow in the front and attach the starfish, when the guests open the invitations, they will have to slide the raffia on and off. I hope this helps.

My invitations are pocketfold and there is a raffia ribbon on the outside. I have 3 pocket inserts- travel/accomodation information, welcome party invite, and response card/envelope. I have not yet seen my invites yet (getting them tomorrow!) but I believe the raffia ribbon with monogram tag is attached and then you can just slide it off, so that it doesn't ruin the invitation. Hope that helps!

Yes, that does help! Thank you!!! Would you mind sharing once you get them? I am wanting to know what people are using for the wording and just the overall look. Also, if the raffia ribbon is attached, can you let me know how they attached it? Tied in a bow, glue dots on the back, etc....
Thanks again!!!

Sure, no problem!
I can email you a pic of them when I get them this weekend if you'd like.
And, I'll let you know how it's all attached.

BTW, we're getting married almost the same day! :)

I also have three cards in my pocket, I'm doing one for RSVP, one for my Farewell Fiesta (day after party) and one with travel information. I will try take a pic and post it for you.

 

I'm doing a closure with our monogram. The raffia will be pretty!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
