I had to make my own invitations and am glad I did!

Thanks!  Everyone has different taste, I'm sure you're will look great, fancy or not.  I'm just glad I had the patience to do them myself, it really does take quite a bit!  Good luck!

They look gorgeous! I totally agree with you about DIYing the invites. I ordered my actual wedding, info and response card from a letterpress vendor, but put everything else together on my own (labels, burlap bellyband, vintage seashell envelope liner and kakumuthu shell embellishments). I can't even imagine what the cost would have been if I hadn't partially DIYed them.

These are Gorgeous! I plan on making mine as well!


I did some practicing with a 12x12 scrapbooking card stock type paper, cut it in 1/2. fold 3 ways and paste an inlay inside. Can't wait. I love this stuff!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
