    Yes, the seller was SayAnythingDesign:
    You did an amazing job on everything!! I like the idea of the post cards instead of a guestbook. My FI and I love to travel so this is a great one for us to use.

    Where did you buy your maracas and the fan? How much were they?
    Were the invites hard to put together? I'm not crafty :{ How much was the total in the end? We're figuring out whether we should tackle this on our own or not.
    Thank you! I actually bought the maraca's once in Mexico. Our Resort had quite a few shops/vendors. They were 2/$5 and we ended up buying 10 - 2 for each table. But I wish I bought more because everyone wanted to keep them and obviously there weren't enough.

    The fans I bought from Oriental Trading Company... super cheap - 12/$9 I think.. and then I bought ribbon from a local fabric/craft store and wrapped the handles.

    The invites were pretty easy. The pocket-fold invite comes ready to go - you just have to print out the invite and the inserts, then cut a matte if you want that look. I bought them from cardsandpockets.com. They let you buy samples if you want to give one a try and see if it's something you want to do? How much were the invites? I think it ended up costing around $130 for 45 invites but honestly I don't remember exactly. Good luck!

              Thanks for sharing this! I loved the postcard idea in lieu of a guest book. I think I'll snag that idea for my wedding.
