I went round and round with what type of invites and STD's I wanted to do. I decided to just make boarding pass invites and include a magnet from Vista Print for a STD. After lots of hard work, a template and some help from Jessica, here they are:

I love them! They look great. Tons of information all together so I'm sure your guests will appreciate that!

 

Are you sending your STD and invites as one?

I love them! I'd love to see the template as well. I think Tom will LOVE this invite idea!! How many did you make? Did you cut each sheet to get the rounded corners?

 

I guess I'll need some help with this one as well...

Hey Rachel,

Yea, I am just throwing them in together. I have emailed our guests updated info about the trip 2 or 3 times now so we pretty much have an idea of who is interested in going and who is not. We have a pretty small group (21 guests) so I decided to go with a less formal invite and just make the magnets.

 

Tami,

If you PM me your email address I can share the template. I made 25 of these. I printed the 5 page boarding pass on white card stock, which used 1 2/3 sheets of card stock. I then printed the "envelopes" on blue card stock, printing one side and then flipping it over to print the reverse side (the interior side has dotted lines to show you where to fold it). I then wrapped with the raffia and then hot-glued the starfish. To get the rounded corners I just went and bought a corner punch at Hobby Lobby. You can find them in the scrapbooking section at Michaels and JoAnn Fabrics.

Awesome! They look great! I might do regular invites since we're sending like 165 ... and then send these to the confirmed guests (45 so far) once we get closer ... but I LOVE them! PM'ing you my email!

That's a good idea. Don't waste money/effort on invites for people who have no intention of going. We kind of did that too...but we sent our STD's out separate. We invited those that showed interest when we announced our wedding was going to be in Mexico. Those that said NO right away, we didn't even put them on the guest list.

I have yet to make my invites though...I only have 35 to make thankfully. Hope they turn out as cute as yours!

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
