    Hey ladies,
    So I have been looking around on the net for save the dates that reflect our Mexico destination wedding an really haven't been that impressed with any. They all seem to be Las Vegas themed. HOnestly I feel like I have looked at 40-50 sites and still not finding what I want. Maybe I am being too picky but I want something cute as it will be my first real thing that I will have done for my wedding.
    Thanks

      Go to plumparty.com.

      If I remember correctly they have mexican/latin postcards for pretty cheap.

      a few ideas:
      • if/when you do a site visit maybe write something in the sand like "save the date"
      • get a personalized monorgram that is festive and personalize your STD.

        Hi,

        I am a Mexico Bride as well and encountered the same problem as you. I could not find ANYTHING that I liked! We finally decided on Boarding Pass Save-the-Dates. They turned out cute, and all of our guests have really like them. It was such a stress-reliever to finally make the choice!

        Good Luck!

          I did a paper airplane and on one side (wing) we printed "Please save the date! Tony and Jessalyn are getting married June 23, 2007". On the other wing we printed, "Book your flight! Passport required...Destination ~ Cabo San Lucas, Mexico". When the airplane was unfolded we had printed inside all of the details regarding the room reservations and our website.

          I know they're not a Mexican theme....they're more along the line of the boarding pass theme....thought I'd share anyway. Our guests thought they were really cute. Oh, and I made them in photoshop.

          Good luck. Hope you find just what you're looking for!

              I made my own postcard using an aerial foto of the resort in Cancun and having them printed at vistaprint.com

              Good luck!

                Is there a site where you can get the boarding pass STD's? How do you mail the paper airplane? Do you fold it flat? Thanks!

                  I actually got a template from another bride on the forum and made my own. I haven't been able to post a pic yet but I am very proud with the way they came out. If you would like the template PM me and I will send it to you. Several brides on this forum use the same template. There were a few problems with formatting but in the end they all look really good. However if you would like to order the boarding pass STD I believe { aylee designs } and Prim and Pixie has them and a few other sites.

                    I love the personalizing in the sand idea! That's cute!
