Passports or message in a bottle invitations?!

Recommended Posts

It is a great idea - I originally ignored message in a bottle invites just because of the cost of shipping and such, but I really like them, so I think I will just hand-deliver to most people; and we will only be making them for the people sound like they will probably make it; we will be sending out save the dates to more people and direct them to our website - if they are pretty sure they will not come, they won't get an invite, and maybe that will cut down on costs. I will also be doing it all DIY. Or is that rude?

Hand delivery will cut cost dramatically!! There's nothing wrong with your plan. Why send an invite to someone who you kind of already know would not be going? That's just my opinon. DIY is the way to go and no it's not rude.

Okay, thanks - I thought it might be rude to send a Save the Date and not an invite, since the STD will probably say "invite to follow", but we are doing an AHR, so they might just get an invite to that... not the message in the bottles though!

We have decided to do boarding pass for STD, passports for the formal invitation, and a message in the bottle when guests arrive OOT bags!!  Now for all the hard work as I plan DIY

This is very close to what we are going to do! Boarding passes for STD, MIBs for the formal invites, and passports for the welcome books!

We did passports as our invites. I love the idea of MIB, and having them as the welcome letter may be the way to go so I can get the best of both worlds

    • 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.
