            Wow! You went all out on your STD’s. Those could even be invites. Love them! They are very appropriate for a Destination wedding.

              Not long. I ordered the DIY kit from Marketing In A Bottle - Detail

              It came with the bottles, corks, some sand and shells, boxes, and some paper which I didn't use.

              Then I bought rafia, nice paper (linen with silver accents), and more sand and shells to put inside.

              I printed my own message and my FI spray painted the mailing boxes in silver on the outside and blue on the inside.

              I probably spent about 50 bucks total on all of the materials. The kit from marketinginabottle was only about $30 or so......

              I would definately do this again...it was pretty easy and cheap!

                  Good job! Your guests will be impressed! I like the "Should this message find you..." part! :)
