    Those are way cute! I'm sure a lot of people were waiting for the formal invite, so I hope you start seeing everyone book!

    WOW ladies!!!

     

    I think its maybe been a week or so since I have been on here and BAM there are like 50+ new posts to read! You guys have been busy busy bees! Ok, so I have finally gotten my act together and taken pictures of our invites! I should be sending them out tomorrow. There are a few people I hand delivered these to, and my Uncle Mark for instance said "I think this is the coolest wedding invitation I have EVER seen"! YAY!!! Score!!! Now lets hope that it will inspire my guests to get there butts in gear and BOOK a dang room already! 141 days to go and hardly ANYONE has even put their initial deposit down....I'm flyin blind here! 

     

    Well I will be leaving this Sat for MT to see my parents and hopefully get some wedding stuff done. I think we are going to try and match up some chair sash samples to fabric for the table runners I want to make, maybe experiment with Wonder Vases for centerpieces, OOT bag items (no sales tax in MT!!), and maybe do some paper crafts like labels or guest book table sign.

     

    Here are some pics I took of my Passport Invites + Boarding Pass RSVP postcard, and Envelope (sorry about the bad quality/color...my camera is misbehaving)!

     



    Oh ya!!!

     

    I bought my dress this weekend!  YAY  I love it!  It's beautiful, but very popular.  I got Sottero Midgley - Adorae at the trunk show.  I just love it and now I understand why so many other brides do too!!!

        Just FYI for those of you who love Vistaprint (and Groupon) like me, there is a $70 Vistaprint credit you can get for $17 right now at groupon.com. It's in the Denver deals, but since Vistaprint is online only, anyone can purchase it and use it online.

            Thanks Shan!

             

            I was so torn between doing Boarding Passes or Passports for invites! Rebecca gave me the option to have it them BOTH! You can check her out on her


            I love your invites! And I really like that you have a boarding pass for the RSVP cards! Who did them and were they costly?  I really want to do passport invites, but I'm afraid they will be really expensive!

            Thank you, I will check her out!!

             

             

            Warning about the group-on for Vistaprint.  I bought one before and let it expire because you can't combine any deals with the group-on (you have to pay full prices for everything) and you have to pay for shipping.  You'd probably want to use it on something that wouldn't normally be on sale! So just a heads-up! :)

            I was so torn between doing Boarding Passes or Passports for invites! Rebecca gave me the option to have it them BOTH! You can check her out on her Allurements by Rebecca website. They really weren't too bad in price. I think to have any invites made whether they are in this style or not is a good chunk of money...not something I was planning on coughing up the money for. But after attempting to make my own, I decided it was worth the money to not have to stress over them. The nice thing she does, is offer you 25% off for a DIY option! She does all the designing and printing, then you just cut them out and assemble them yourself! Not a bad option! We were going to do the DIY option, but life got hectic and I was feeling the time pressure, so I decided to just pay the extra and have her assemble them.

              Hola ladies,

               

              Got home a little early today (off-site training for the next 3 days), and I received our 1st RSVP card in the mail (not counting my family that already booked and "want to keep it with their invites as a keepsake").  It was from my work-mom... YAY!  So that sparked me to do something at or welcome dinner which will be to have a gift for the 1st person that turned in their RSVP card, and the longest traveled guest (which will be my soon to be niece that's hailing all the way from Japan). 

               

              Have a good one.
