I do need help with two more things.. One the main invite it says

Angela xxxx and Matthew xxxx
Invite you to share the sun, sea and memories of our wedding day

Shouldn't it say "their"? The designer says it won't fit because it makes the line too long and says it's ok because of the casual wording.. what do you think?

The RSVP is a postcard so that will help with postage.

I have a Wedding Weekend insert that lists our welcome dinner plans and the wedding/reception plans.. There is a day (Saturday) in between the two. I want to say something about enjoying their vacation on this day but not sure how to word it.. currently it says

Day of Leisure
Saturday, October 27th
Enjoy yourself next to the pool or under a palapa on the beach. Dresams Resort also has a spa that offers massages under the stars. The concierge will be able to help you make other recreationals plans should you choose to go into either Cabo San Lucas or Sand Jose Del Cabo.

It sounds chunky instead of fun. We don't wont to tell people what to do.. they are on vacation after all but it does fill up the page. Any ideas?

I didn't upload a picture of the best part!!! It comes in a light brown box with a leather band and large sand dollar around it. Here's a link to the designer's site:
Eiffel Printing & Design - 5x7 Tiffany Blue Marsupial with cane paper and sand dollars.

I love these invites!!! Wonder if I can DIY them? but those look really nice!!

You def can! The cane paper that she used is really expensive, but nothing looks that difficult. I just looked into the cost of the supplies versus my sanity and decided to let Brittany do them for me.. So far she's been a dream to work with.

good to know! I haven't seen that paper anywhere, so I may just order them...

the invites are gorgeous - we're doing sand dollars too!

 

i'd like to do plan some kind of welcome/rehearsal dinner thing (at dreams pv) - are you paying per person for that, or are you having everyone just meet in the restaurant and hope that you can persuade the staff to put tables together?

They're gorgeous!!! I wouldn't change a thing! And I think the "Day of Leisure" sounds great. If I were a guest reading that I would totally understand it and think that was a really nice way of saying..."do what you want"! lol!

Girls,

I'm really stressing about these invites.. 3 months ago I could have cared less about something "my guests are going to throw away" but now it's all I think about...

 

I really don't like the Day of Leisure section.. anyone have another way of saying "have a great time and enjoy your vacation"??

I like how Jessalyn put it in her welcome letter... she said

" Join Jessalyn in the morning at the spa for a treatment, if you wish. Spend the afternoon with us at the beachside pool or enjoy a day in town if you desire."

 

I thought it was a nice way of saying... RELAX you are on vacation!

Oh, I like that alot..
Here's what I ended up with:

Enjoy the beautiful day and soak up some of the Mexican sun or relax beneath the shade of a tropical palm or palapa. We hope you enjoy your vacation time as much as the wedding festvities.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
