Thanks for the suggestions Jess! What size boxes did you buy? Their invites are 5x7. The good thing is I have LOTS of time to work on them this summer before I start the nursing program!

You'll be so happy if you can get them done early. I bought square boxes....7 3/8" x 7 3/8". My invites were 6 inch square and were a trifold with pockets on each side. My starfish was attached to the outside of the trifold with raffia.

 

You can do it. I actually modified the invites I liked so that they would work with the boxes I found, etc. I worked with what was available to produce the invite. You'll have a great sense of accomplishment and pride in your invites. It's a good feeling to look at the product and know that you made it.

Starfish wedding invitations - unique beach wedding invitations in a box

I think these are $12.99
Off topic here ... Glenda! That's exactly the colour of orange I want in my wedding! I am having a hard time finding items in that shade. (Looking for bm dresses now).

Yes, not a deep deep, but vibrant. I guess the bm dresses is first. Since Dreams Cancun is surrounded by turquoise water and the walk up to the gazebo is surrounded by green grass, I wanted to give a pop of colour. I am trying to find dresses with a sleek modern design. I am going to a place on Thursday evening which might have some.

I think I will have to find table runners or I can make something with that colour for the tables. I think I am going to do the drowned flower idea in square vases.

I want mango callas, but that may be too much orange with the bm dresses and my flowers. (Suggestions?!)

My original idea was to have these colours with just a pop of orange:
