Hi girls!

I just finished my passport invitations, and I have to say that I'm happy with how they came out, but holy moly were they a lot of work. Like... hours, and hours and hours. It took quite a bit of time pritning everything, as getting it to line up right and print right, and figuring out how to print well on the shimmery paper, was not an easy task for me. I think if I had to do it again I'd see if i could have them printed at Staples or somewhere like that so I didn't have to fuss with that. I think a lot of it is because our numbers kept going up as far as who to invite, so I ended up having to make 76 of them... and I had only bought enough stuff to do 50 (and I thought that was overkill!!). I had ordered the paper from paperandmore.com as advised by Teira, and so I had to get some locally, which was nearly impossible, to finish the rest. I ended up finding what I needed at Joannes... They had pearl cardstock I used for the white pages that was a PAIN to print on (my printer couldn't flip it to print on the back), and pink scrapbook paper for the covers. I bought a DIY wedding invite kit there too that had something similar (but not as nice) to the pear inner envelopes, and ended up sending out some of them with plain white envelopes as the outer envleopes. (It is IMPOSSIBLE to find anyone selling pretty envelopes of any type locally... so dissapointing.)

The paper that Teira reccommended was so pretty I was thrilled, and it was fine to print on, so it was a pain that I ran out!

Jszy10 had also done something similar, (http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/63119/my-diy-passport-invites) and I took bits from hers as well.. especially the response card. I ordered mine from from Staples (first did the in-store printing, which was terrible, then had them mailed to me the regular way.)

My guests just started getting them today, but so far I've gotten quite a few texts saying how much people like them and how excited they are! (There is literally everything they need to know in there... Most of the information came from a "Save the date" packet that my travel agent (Sarah at Beach Bum Vacations) put together for me. I guess i didn't take pics of all the pages, though!)

Hope these help you with planning if you are deciding to do them!! :) Good luck with yours!!
