Your pocketfolds are exactly what I have been looking for at cards & pockets. I'd like to pick your brain about a few things:

(1) did you buy the pre-cut card stock? If so, what printer did you use to print? If not, how did you print and cut your card stock? Seems like a lot of work either way!

(2) how much postage did each invite require?

Thanks in advance for your help! Excited to hear your answers... :)
I bought the pocketfolders, the pre-cut mats (the pink backing behind the invite), the rsvp envelopes, the main envelopes and then I just bought card stock in bulk from them for all the inserts and the invite. I used a HP photosmart printer. I also have an EPSON photo printer. Re-cut would have been easier and less time consuming ONLY IF your printer will accomodate the small paper size and if you can be ok with messing with the graphics until they fit. With cutting ourselves we could fudge a little and we did!

We did have to buy a cutter, which was well worth the money. I bought the ribbon at Hobby Lobby.

Also, I had a hard time getting my RSVP envelopes printed. My printer didn't have a setting that small.

The postage ended up killing me, $1.05 per invite. But this was what I wanted so....be prepared! :)

I seriously have to thank Andi! I refered to her invites throughout the whole process! I also believe I stole some wording and such for her and other amazing brides like Lisa!

 

Thanks Ladies! Seriously don't know what I would have done without your invites!

    • 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.
