Our invites... a labour of love! We sent these out on the first of November and Iâ€ve been meaning to post this for ages but it was a combination of laziness and the craziness of the holidays! Anyway some you may remember from my save the dates (http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/63007/sunkisseddreams-diy-boarding-pass-save-the-dates) that I swore Iâ€d enlist in some help. Well Iâ€ve come to realize Iâ€m a bit of control freak so it was probably for the best that I only let the FI assist! I donâ€t actually have a template for the pocket folds. It was mostly trial and error and I created the design in Photoshop. FI picked the quote for the envelope liner (he was so proud of himself... so cute!). The entire invite cost including postage and materials (I already own the supplies):  approximately $265.00/75 or $3.53/invite!

 

 

Materials:

Hong Kong Cardstock (8.5x11) – The Paper Poet

Grasshopper Cardstock (8.5x11) – The Paper Poet

White Cardstock (8.5x11) – Michaels

Velcro - Michaels

Ribbon – Paper Poet

Envelopes – Paper Poet

 

Supplies:

Paper cutter, 2†round punch, glue stick, double sided adhesive, bone, scissors, & ruler.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
