So I decided to save myself some money and DIY my invites and I ordered supplies from cards and pockets.


I made some truly bad decisions while making these invites (knowing that ink doesn't stay well on metallic paper, I still insisted on having metallic Tiffany Blue invites, and metallic envelopes) Needless to say, I dealt with it - laid every invite and envelope out flat to dry for 2-3 days, to be safe. I still had some smudges, mostly on the envelopes, but nothing too major.


Even though it took so much work and soooo much trial and error, I don't think I would have done it any differently if I could go back. I know that my invites are exactly what I want and totally 100% original.

I apologize in advance, these are pictures of my VERY rough draft (not finished edges, printing just a bit off). I mailed out all of the good copies yesterday, and had no invites left over except for my draft. Hopefully I can borrow my sister's copy to get pictures of the real final product.

    • 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.
