I made my own Passport Invites!  You can check them out here -- http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/63119/my-diy-passport-invites

 

I purchased Aylee's template for $10, and it was definitely totally worth it.  I ended up making 25 invites for less than $30.

 

Here is the link for the template -- http://www.ayleebits.com/2009/03/09/passport-invitation-template/ . She also offers a free one if you didn't want to pay.  and there are definitely other templates on the site, I just wanted something more professional looking with the passport background.

 

Good luck!! If you need help, let me know!!

Thank you SO much for all the helpful information!  I recently purchased the template from Aylee - I'll keep you posted with what we create!  I'm very excited!!  Did you also do STD's?

I just made my own magnet STD's when we first decided when and where we were getting married.  I actually sent out my invitations about 10-12 months in advance with the booking information.  I'm not sending out an invitation like most do 2 months before.  I'll be sending out my AHR invites then.

Ok..that makes more sense to me, to send the inviations out so far in advance.  Our TA suggested we send STD's and basically ask if people are planning to come to let us know so we have a count of how many to set our group for (for flights mostly I'm guessing).  I was thinking at that point people are gonna want to know what the prices are before they commit! 

 

Did you just guess on how many you thought would come?  Can you kind of explain how it worked with you TA...

 

Thanks SO much for all your help!!  You've been great!!

What I did was sent out the STD about 14 months out, to let people know we were having a Destination Wedding, and then sent out all of the booking information at around 11-12 months out.  We didn't do a group booking for airfare -- I have heard its really not that big of a discount anyway?  My TA just got a group contract created with the resort for room discounts and my guests are booking through her individually.  Does that make sense!?!?  I hope this helps a little?

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
