Thank you so much!! Trust me these DIY invites are very possible....you just need to have patience as it takes time to put everything together and print, cut, etc!
I did research alot of passport invites in this forum....DIY ones and professional ones....and borrowed alot of ideas as well as molded some to my liking......
Aylees template can be changed to any color....you just have to play around with the colors that you want.......Teal is a beautiful color!! have you thought of adding a second contrast color? that would be nice!
The free RSVP cards i got from vista print using an old email that someone provided here that had a bunch of free offers........but you can easily google "free vista print postcards" or something like that.....and you should be able to find something.....the postcard that i used can be found on vista print, under postcards and then under "travel & Accomodations" industry......
I printed these on a Dell V515w all-in-one Inkjet printer.....which handles heavy paper......a standard printer wouldnt print the black ink dark enough.......as it was not suited to print on heavier paper........for the specific paper that i bought laser printers did not work.....i had to use Inkjet.....so this is something to consider when ordering your paper.....
MAC book pros do not come with Photoshop.....my brother already had this program which he had to purchase........but Aylees template is on Microsoft Word....i just copied it to photoshop since i was having my brother help with it! alot of ladies here used word and power point as well......even Microsoft Publisher........
I can't beleive you have the same package as me!! we are having the catholic wedding at the Gran Caribe followed by a beach reception at the Royal......Please contact me if you have any questions or want to share any info on the process! I'll be happy to help you.....I hope that my wedding review will be useful for you since i'll be married before you!
Thank you so much for your compliments! best of wishes to you too! please feel free to ask any other questions! you can always PM me!
Maria, thanks for your thread on DIY passport invites! I didn't think they were possible to do myself but with your post I guess I can. I was close to having it made and done for me and it is fairly costly. Was the Aylee template in pink only? We want our color to be light turquoise/teal blue and I love the inclusion on information about the resort and other details about the destination rather than just information on the wedding itself. Also, how did you get the free RSVP postcards from Vista print? Was this all printed from Your home printer? And does all the MACbook Pro's come with Photoshop?
Your invitations and RSVPs look professionally made and beautiful! Thanks again for such a detailed DIY post. I just put in my downpayment for a Royal Catholic Wedding at Gran Caribe in their beautiful chapel with reception at Villas Terrace for February 2012! We're also considering staying at The Royal after the wedding as a honeymoon but at Gran Caribe for the wedding and before.
Best wishes on your wedding and marriage! You'll be a beautiful bride!
