Nice work! Our wedding dates are just a few days apart. When do you think you'll send these out?

 

 

I'm actually sending these out soon...which I believe is different than the norm?  They are the first peice of information that anyone is getting about travel and booking, and our families/friends have been so anxious about when they could start booking, so any day now I guess.  I'm not actually finished with all of them yet!!  Where are you getting married lisa??

Good idea!! I am going to have so many extras, I was trying to think of a way to reuse them...maybe I'll but a white sticker over the whole back to cover up the writing and print my welcome notes on them too!!

How did you get  the inside pages to come out so smooth and clean at the crease? Did to use staples or glue I can't see anything... you did a really terrific job...

 

 

I actually used a zig brand scrapbooking glue pen to glue the pages together, and then used a slightly stronger card crafting pen to secure the paper to the cardstock cover.  I bought them both at Joann's.  I wanted everything to look as smooth as possible, which I why I didn't want to use staples.  Hope this helps?!

I am in awe of your invitations.  I keep referring to this thread for more information.  They are stunning.  At my sisters place trying to figure out the page layouts and dimensions now.  She is more computer savvy than I am.  What size is your passport again (all folded)? 3.5x5.5 or 5x7?

Thanks!!! Ahh good luck!!!  Hope it helps!!  My passport is 3 1/2" wide (actually just a little bit more than 3 1/2)  X 5 1/2" tall FOLDED.  I'd love to see them when you're done!! :o) Are you using any template?

That makes perfect sense. I think the "norm" concept is thrown out the window with destination weddings. I'm sure your guests will appreciate knowing early. How many more do you have to make?

 

We're getting married June 21, 2011. We set up a site a couple months ago and sent STD postcards with the link. The site has tons of info so, at this point, everyone has a good idea of what to expect. I'm thinking we'll probably send out invites early January, requesting RSVP by April. We bought supplies for message in a bottle invites and, based on how great yours turned out, I'm thinking we may do passports for a welcome book. Thanks again for sharing and the inspiration.

Thanks Lisa..I only had to make about 25, so not too bad.  Although it is quite time consuming!!  I LOVE the message in a bottle!!  I was actually considering doing a message in a bottle for my wedding programs, like having the bottle on everyones seat and then once they go to sit they can open it up and the wedding program will me be in there? just a thought...right now I'm thinking i'll either do that or do a fan program.  Where did you buy your message in a bottle supplies?!  Do you think my idea of doing it for a program would work? I guess it would end up being more we'd have to take down there though too...just more to think about.

    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
    • If you want to enjoy your wedding then go for a dance floor. It is a precious moment of your life and you should enjoy it.
    • As you have said it is going to be a beach wedding so I would recommend a combination of Calla Lily and Daffodil. You can also use Calla lily or Daffodil individually. Both the flowers have different colors so it will easily attract anyone.

    • I’m a wedding planner/organizer by profession. Truth be told, I don’t have that much experience in the industry but I’m doing the best I can. We will be working on a wedding next month with a foreign couple. I’m usually the one who handles everything on behalf of the bride during the day so I need some tips and advice on how to handle brides from foreign countries. Do they need special accommodations? What are the kinds of services they are used to when under pressure? What kind of snacks should I offer them during breaks or when they’re hungry? Thanks so much in advance.
