I am so excited to share my DIY Passport Invites!!  With help from SO many girls on this forum, and Aylee Bits $10 template -- http://www.ayleebits.com/2009/03/09/passport-invitation-template/ -- I am finally ready to put them together and send them out!  I used an orange metallic cardstock from Joann's for the cover and a thicker high-grade printer paper for the inside pages.  I used VistaPrint to create my free reply postcards!  Feel free to ask ANY questions!! The $10 template was the best money I ever spent!!

 

I was thinking about finishing it off with a ribbon around the bind?? I've seen that done a lot and think it makes a nice finishing touch.  What do you think?

I love, love, love the postcards! I don't have advanced enough skills at vistaprint, everything I try to make looks so boring and simple. Any advice/suggestions on how to get them look that pretty?

Primavera:  The postcard I bought is actually a design they offer!!! I just added the text!!  You can search "palm tree" once you are under the postcard designs...and it should show up?? or even maybe under the "travel" category??  Good luck!! Let me know if you have trouble!  THere are quite a few beach designs!

Woohoo! I found them, thanks! I guess I have only been looking at the magnet designs earlier. That is great! Thanks!

Here comes my first question (lol), how do you rotate the text on the postcard? When I click rotate it only does it 180 degrees and not just a little bit if you know what I mean?

For the design I made, the text was already rotated that way...If you are trying to do it on a different one, I'm really not sure you can.  Sorry!! I hope this helped??

Hmm...weird, It is the same design but the text is straight and not aligned with the the picture. It doesn't seem like I can change it either. Hmm...maybe they have changed it. I saw other designs where the text was diagonal like that though. I really liked that design, but I guess it is not the end of the world :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
