Hey Ladies!


I'm so excited! woot.gif As weird as this sounds, one of the things I have been most excited for are sending out our STDs. Since we are planning on a tropical setting, I decided I wanted to do my STDs as a Message in a Bottle! It was actually pretty affordable too. For 50 bottles (including the cork) and all the supplies (sand, shells, umbrella, funnel) it was just over $50! Not too bad! You can even slap a mailing stamp right on the bottle and stick them in the mail! 



Once I get them, I just print out my STD, put everything together, and BAM, memorable STDs! This is about what they will look like when I am done!

Oh....I ordered my bottles in plastic instead of glass to save on shipping, but now I am worried that it might look tacky! It seems like most people have done glass! 


Does anyone have any cute (fairly short and simple) wording ideas? I have searched for some but can't seem to find too many! I would like it to at least include the place, date, time, and website. Are there other things I should include? Thanks girls!

The shipping is much cheaper with the plastic bottles than with glass. With glass you HAVE to put them in boxes (and of course the bottles weigh more) so some girls have said that it cost up to $5/bottle! YIKES. 


With the plastic ones, you can just stick a mailing label and stamp right on the bottle and send it out! I sounds like it will be between $1.50-$2.50 per bottle depending on how much sand you put in the bottle.


Thanks ladies! Just FYI, I did not make the ones in the pictures. These are just where I am drawing my inspiration from. I think I'm going to try and find some little plastic Palm Trees to stick inside too! Any wording info would be helpful too! cheesy.gif

I did glass bottles for my MIB and the total cost for shipping with bubble wrap, bottle and shipping box was $2.75. Not bad!! At least i didn't think it was. It was all worth it!


@Krsmith- Check out bottlemeamessage.com I ordered my supplies from them. They have many invitation wording ideas. I'm sure you'll find one that'll suit your taste.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
