Pictures of our Boarding Pass Wedding Invites/ STD

Recommended Posts

Thanks : ) It took so long to find the perfect paper...I wanted linen paper, but was dissapointed I couldn't find something more textured for the envelope...oh well. Everyone tosses the envelope anyway...right? At least that's what I'm hoping for : )

We also just did these very cool escort cards/ place setting cards for each geat. I designed mini postcards with a vintage spanich back, found a vintage stamp and added our wedding date to the post mark. I absolutely LOVE THEM! They may be my most favourite detail about the wedding. The image on the front is a vintage Mexican print of a man and a woman on the beach. On each card we wrote out our guests a little note and put their seat as the address.

 

Here are some shots of versions without the writing on them. Did I mention that I love them : )

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:

How did you get the jungle leaves? What type of file are they?

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
