So after the excitement of the proposal, we decided what better way to marry your dream love, then to have a dream wedding. We both thought it would be truly special to be married on the beach in paradise. The next step was to find the perfect invitation, and our research brought us to our “message in a bottle†.

Though you can order pre-made message in a bottle invitations, we decided to make them ourselves! (Supplies from SandArtSupplies.com) First we started by filling the bottles with sand and shells:

After an AMAZING Bride (THANK YOU SO MUCH) on this Forum shared her invitation template with us, we customized it and printed our invitations. We cut each one to the appropriate size and then burned the edges to give them an aged appearance…

…and this is how it turned out:

Next we rolled each invitation with blue Raffia and attached tags to pull the invitations from the bottles (check out the real starfish attached to each one)

Now, there still was a great deal of information we needed to tell people about the logistics of the wedding, so we decided to create mini-passports that would contain all the exciting details of our special day. (These were made with postcards from Vistaprint, and the inside hads all the info on the resort printed on our home computer)

How better to have our guests RSVP then to rip of a portion of a faux boarding pass and send it in as their response? And, hence, our boarding pass RSVPs were born (These I ordered for EllasPaper on Etsy- I highly recommend them!!!)…

Finally, we needed a wonderful way to safely send all of these great pieces to our guest. So, what better way to send them out, than in little suitcases…handmade, of course. (This was a lot of work, but easy - ribbon, metal fasteners and craft foam sheets from Michaels - oh and we folded the boxes inside out so they were brown instead of white)

hey, laura, i love LOVE LOVE! those invitations!! would you mind sharing a couple tips?

 

1. i've been trying to locate an image like the frond but haven't had much luck...could you point me in the right direction or toss the template up? i'm also using illustrator but am rather new at it wink.gif

 

2. i have the kraft paper mentioned but it seems thicker maybe -- did you have problems rolling the paper up without "bending" it? maybe i'm using the thick stuff and should be going lighter?

 

would love any guidance you could share. also at asayle@gmail.com if that's easier but i imagine there are a ton of ladies who would love your insight.

 

thanks again for the inspiration!
