I sure wish I had found dafonts.com before I had my monograms made, and my labels, and tags!! I could have saved some moola and done alot of it myself!
Thanks!! Yah I love dafonts!!

Christy I would also totally recommend a bone folder to crease the ticket jackets with. I think mine was $4 and it made it sooooo much easier to make the folds look more professional!! I just did a mock-up one last weekend and it totally helped!

I was lucky. I had a friend that just had a wedding and they purchased a really good deskjet. They let me borrow it so I saved some $$ that way. If you don't go the printer route, maybe you have some good friends! Otherwise, I agree with Carly about having them printed out.

Also, there are some good tropical prints from the — iDiY site that another BDW bride posted earlier today!

And the DaFonts has good fonts for adding things like a Hibiscus:

dafont.com
Great tips! Thanks! I have downloaded a bunch of fonts from da fonts already (for work stuff - marketing our swim school) and I went back recently and downloaded a bunch more that are relevant to my DW. I made myself about 15 - 20 monograms just because it was so much fun to play with the fonts! I let my FI pick his favorite. I love that site (and the other free font websites that are out there!)

I wish I knew someone with a good printer.

Mich999 - I think I'm going to do like you and have Kinkos print for me. I'd probably spend the same amount of money on printer ink anyway, and dealing with the pages not feeding correctly and all of that (in my cheap printer) would be a huge pain! I have a guillotine paper cutter as well, but it doesn't work very well. It leaves the ends uncut or makes sloppy cuts. I probably need to have the blade sharpened. But it's so big that I don't do a great job lining it up on my cut lines. I actually did better on my trial runs with scissors than with my big paper cutter.


F. Mrs. G. - I had no idea what a bone folder was or how to use one. (I also had no idea what the Fiskars rotary tool was or how it worked.) So I did a YouTube search and found this video: YouTube Video And on a Google search I found this article: How To Use a Bone Folder All of a sudden this horrible dauting task didn't seem so bad. I had no idea about all of these nifty little tools! The last time I was in a craft store was probably in 9th grade to get posterboard for a school project.

Thanks to everyone for opening my eyes to this stuff!

I made the Boarding Passes myself too and it wasn't so bad once you get started...definitely get a paper cutter, corner punch, and bone folder! We did make a very expensive mistake...I put FI in charge of printing them at Staples and he didn't tell them that it was cardstock...so they quoted us around 50 dollars. When he picked them up it was 175 dollars!!!! There wasn't much we could do at that point bc they used up all of our paper...make sure you bring some paper when you ask how much it will be!!

 

Oh and I had him fold the ticket jacket...and threw out his first 10 folds...maybe I should have done this project all by myself!

Here are my STD Boarding Passes. I went to my local printer:

$0.07 - to purchase glossy paper (colour comes to life)

$0.25/colour copy

 

I only did 2 slips and therefore got 3 invites per 2 pages.

 

30 pages = 45 invites

$.32/page = $14.50 for 45 invites

 

I purchased 8.5 X 11 coloured construction paper 50 sheets for $9.99 and just printed the logo's from home

 

If you want colour in your invites you can use a picture in the background like I did. People loved them. Let me know if you want the template.

 

I did a poor job cutting them, but I didn't try very hard :) The inside corners could have come out alot cleaner (whoops!)

Hi guys,

 

All those boarding pass STD's look just awesome! I too love the 'Boarding Pass' look of them. And I'm so totally new to all this planning stuff I was wondering where do you get the plain/blank template of the Boarding Pass STD's?

 

Thanks. And keep up the great work!

    • 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.
