      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 are doing boarding pass for the invitations and MIB for the welcome letter. Thanks for the website. That helps a lot.

                      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
