Pictures of our Boarding Pass Wedding Invites/ STD
Posted 31 December 2008 - 03:55 AM
After many discussions (and hours of designing) we just couldn't decide which invitation to use as the final one, so we decided to go ahead and use all three. Guests received a random invite and were all surprised when they found out that there were other versions out there. Some even tried to 'collect all three!"
I chose to print each boarding pass on high quality textured card stock to make it durable, but give it some rustic charm. I also used a perforation tool on each one to make it feel more authentic. Guests loved these little details!
Each invitation came in its own envelope and alongside the boarding pass invite we included a 'brochure' for the wedding. This brochure included details about the resort, how to order, a personal note from us, etc. Our guests seemed to really like the brochure because it answered all the questions they had and also got them excited about the resort. I think it is critical to have these for your destination wedding based on the feedback I received!
Each envelope was handmade with brown linen textured paper and lined with forest green textured paper to give it a rustic look. Each one was wrapped and tied with green raffia that matched the envelope liner. This I placed into a mailing envelope.
Here are come pictures, Okay - here they finally are!
Here is our beach themed invite in the envelope:

Here is our jungle themed invite (my personal favourite!)
Our final version - palm trees!

I too spent hours on my STD's and Invites...but in the end they turned out great and my guests LOVED them...at Christmas all of our relatives kept telling us how great the DIY invites were and my FI just kept telling them it was not his doing! awww....he is so sweet!
