I am doing a pocketfold invitation and plan on using a postcard RSVP. The postage is cheaper, and I don't have to stuff another envelope inside the invite. Right now, the invites are in the work. I just got the design all layed out, and have ordered the paper supplies. I hope to print and assemble by the end of the month. I'll make sure to post pics when they're done.

 

Which reminds me....what should I put as the respond by date? Our wedding is Oct. 12.

 

We decided not to do STDs, and instead, just send out our invites early so that we could include all the accomodations/reservations information. We are also going to include an STD for the AHR in the invite.

We sent postcards reminding guests to rsvp online but you can design these however you like. Very easy and high quality, glossy postcards. I had the most fun designing these. I added the images I liked, arranged them, picked a background, and added the wording for both sides. You can put a pic of you two or whatever you want. Fast shipping and $19.95 for 100. Highly recommended, nobody believed I designed them myself! FYI the site makes awesome stationary too.

That's awesome!! How many did you invite and how many do you expect to come? I just noticed that your wedding is a month after mine.

honestly, I don't have an exact count of how many guests we invited. I would assume about 250+ (including children)! But we are expecting about 150.

 

By the way, I just noticed today that we gave 12 more (yes) responses made through our website!

These are what we included---- very basic and not related to any theme/color we are using in the wedding... I did them in PrintShop software. Very nice to use because you can easily save it as a PDF or JPEG without any image issues.... I printed it on some leftover postcard paper I had from Office Depot. I used to print photos and graphics I made for my daughter on the postcard paper and I'd sent them to her when I was traveling--- the paper was usually very light and I'd wind up using some laminating sheets to strengthen them. I was worried about that with these, but figured what the hell, I'll send them without for once. They've all been coming back without hardly any damage to them...

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
