To pocketfold... or to passport? Opinions please!

Recommended Posts

Hey ladies...

 

I posted this on the Jamaica brides board and mentioned this in a past post but I thought I would ask again and get some more opinions.

 

I'm dabbling between the idea of having passport invites versus pocketfold ones. The problem... we have family already in Jamaica that are planning to attend.

 

I thought it would seem weird to send them passport invites to a wedding in the same country. What do you think? I was thinking I could get away with it if I make it generic (like have "Passport to Paradise") on the cover. I also wouldn't get carried away with putting more logistics on the inside other than the invite (like info on the country, etc).

 

Anyway, with that said what do you think?

I think of passport invitations as indicating a destination wedding or travel-themed event, not just necessarily a wedding in another country - if you like passport invitations, go for those! Your guests in Jamaica will still think they're cool, even if the live in Jamaica :)

For me, it was between boarding passes and pocketfolds. After months of deliberations, I ended up going with pocketfolds. I think which ever style you prefer, you should go with that one, regardless if you have guests in the destination country.

Thanks ladies for your responses! We decided to go ahead with the Passport invites. We just won't include info that you would give for guests who aren't famaliar with the country (since a majority visit it frequently).

I think that's a great choice! Pocketfolds are soo over done imo. You can do them for any kind of wedding. We did passports and everyone LOVED them and were so surprised because they had never seen anything like that before.

I know you have decided, but I thought I would go ahead and throw in my 2cents. I did boarding pass invites for all my guests that will be traveling, then printed some regular do-it-yourself invites from Hobby Lobby for my family and guests in JA.

You know Karla, that's actually not a bad idea! I will definitely keep that in mind because we do have a number of guests who live in JA and this could help cut costs for the invites. So, I'll consider doing this as well... it's not too late.

You guys are all great! Thanks!
