    Hey Ladies!

     

    I'm so excited!  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!

            Very nice and creative! Is the shipping going to be a lot, even with plastic bottles? I wondered how people got message in a bottle stds out.


            Happily married on June 11th 2011 to the best husband in the world!

              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!

                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.
