          I love everything. Can I ask if they were very expensive to mail?

              Hahaha ... I was nervous lol. But it was his contribution.

              Well him and the bestman also helped by rolling up the invites ... only I then had to re-roll all of them because they weren't tight enough, But that's ok. It was the thought that counts.

              Once the boys went to install drywall, me and my bridesmaid (best man's wife) got most of the job done.

              Got my boxes, now all I need to do is staple the passports, print the mailing labels, pack the boxes and send them out.

              We decided to hand deliver to everyone who lives nearby to save on shipping costs. We have a few that are going far away, so those ones we will have to mail, but I think we can hand deliver most of them.

                How did the stapling go? Mine looked lined up and properly trimmed until I go to fasten them together. All of a sudden nothing lines up. Any hints?

                    My FI did the stapling. He had to line them up, then staple over a piece of wood because the stapler was not long enough to accommodate the passports. It was a pain in the butt and a couple were not completely perfect, but I still love how they turned out.
