Ok, so I have to make my own invitations, because as I posted before, FI thinks that it is something we "don't really need" I was searching for vellum... palm tree or something tropical. I visited all my local scrapbook stores, and they can't even special order anything like that for me. So do you ladies have any ideas of something simple, but nice and beachy that I could make my DIY invites from.... I really didn't want to do message in a bottle (even though I love them) but they are going to be too expensive for me to ship... So any picutes of invites you ladies have already made or plan to do would be very helpful...

Have you thought about printing your own vellum? You could have a pattern and scale it back to 30% and print...

 

I actually think really simple invites are very pretty... what about a DIY kit? You could always glue on a shell or something? or use a colored paper as a backing sheet to give it more weight.

oopss.. I just meant you could print a pattern on the vellum.. sounded like you wanted somthing for an overlay but weren't able to find it.. I guess it depends on your printer too.. some work better than others. I believe that's how the girls that created the picture frame centerpieces did it.. they printed photos on vellum...

ooohh.. that would be pretty, either a beach scene or a light photo of the two of you with your wedding invite wording behind it..

tie it with a bow and tada!!

(mind you I'm having someone create my invites) :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
