    FINALLY!!!

    We finished our message in a bottle/boarding pass invites. The formal invitation is the "message in a bottle" and the boarding passes are the RSVP card and information about the resort. I think they turned out great :)

    I took a LOT of ideas from this forum - and I give full credit to those brides who's ideas I borrowed. Thank you all so much!!

    All the bottles:

      Sticky on the box so people would actually open the darn things -this was taken from the girl who posted earlier today about her MIB invites - and its definitely a necessity for MIB invitations - nobody wants to actually OPEN them!! lol! So thank you for the idea!

      Haven't mailed them yet, but we really only have to mail about 20 of them - the rest we are hand-delivering. Its gonna cost about $5 to mail each - ouch! But we budgeted for that when we decided to do them.

      Materials:
      Bud Light with Lime: Drank these with the help of my BIL. Cost not associated to wedding lol
      Shells: Dollar Store 2 bags
      Glass rocks: ?? From the fishbowls from my SIL's wedding!
      Corks: 10 cents each - we got 40.
      Twine: 1 roll $2.50 ish.
      Sand: Stolen from the beach nearby... lol
      Boarding Passes (Yes they are real) Stolen from Air Canada...
      Paper: Regular printer paper stained with tea and burned edges
      Charms: Ebay
      Wood tags: 2 sheets Balsa wood from Micheals
      Tissue paper: $25 for 500 sheets. I think we used 120 sheets or so?? lol.
      I think thats it!

      I love them - I think they look wonderful.
