                I am getting married at Dreams Punta March 2010 so I sent out STD's about 3 months ago which i ordered from 123print. I ordered magnets stating to save the date, punta cana, and listed at the bottom my free website at Wedding Planning Guide and Free Wedding Websites - mywedding.com where I have all my information listed..introduction page about our decision in having a destination wedding..how we met, engagement, accomodations, entertainment at the resort, our fav music, guest book, RSVP, and more. I finished the website before I sent the save to date. Anytime I update it, I send emails to my guests directly from the website. It makes things a lot easier for everyone especially for us. Hopes this helps....
                Oh..once I received the magnets, I place them in white cards (in the middle) and venum on top with a pretty aqua flower holding the velum & card together. It was a little bit of a project but my best friend who's a party planner helped me. Now..I'm searching for invites now...

                    Hey everyone!

                    I wasn't sure exactly what to do stationery-wise either, but was so happy when I made my decision! I wanted to do something with the destination wedding theme, so we did luggage tag shaped save the dates, are doing boarding pass invitations with RSVP postcards. I love that from the get-go, everyone gets the feel of destination wedding! I used TAGZ, a custom stationer here in Ottawa. I have pictures of our save the dates, but I don't know how to upload photos to this site, so if anyone would like a look to get an idea of luggage tag shaped save the dates, just let me know your e-mail! :0)

                    Happy planning! I'm finding the stationery part very fun, exciting, but also a bit frustrating, just trying to figure out what information to put where!

                    Cheers!

                    TP

                      ok soo I finally made my decision last night and I have decided to do the baording pass stds thx to all the graeat ideas on the forum. I am working on it right now and will post my pics in the inviatations thread, when I'm done which will probably be next week :)


                      taratoons - I too was having a time trying to figure out what was too much info, not enough info, where to put what etc.... but I just complied a list of what I wanted on the stds based on what other brides did and now I think I am good to go./

                      I am including the following;
                      -the date for ceremony and AHR reception
                      -a short blurb to family and friends
                      -travel info ( passports, TA contact info etc..)
                      -name of resort and website link
                      -a small map of the Punta Can DR
