      I was gonna go with Ana, but she was out of my price range. I just paid my coworker $100 to put together my invites. I guess it depends on what type of invite you want. I researched and researched for passport invites and I didnt find anything for less than $400.

        Thats so funny you should mention that when I first announced we were having a destination wedding I had three separate friends say they can't make it they would be sending checks.

                our best man ended up designing our passport invites, then he just went to a custom print shop and made it all happen! He definitely earned his title!

                  Anacj why don't you try etsy. Some of the ladies got theirs done on etsy and they came out great and the prices weren't bad I think.

                  Life is too short to be ordinary by beyonddesign on Etsy

                    I am finally going to upload my pictures of my invites. I found invitations on here that I liked. I wish I could remember who's invites they were because I would love to give them credit! I had my FI's dads graphic designer work with my ideas and put them all together. I ordered my stamps off of zazzle.com and yes I did put them on the left side, which most people arent noticing...thank God. If anyone is interested, let me know, as she does invites as a side job and she hand makes everything. shes amazing.

                    The title is "my tropical invites. I love them!" Sorry I dont know how to link yet!
