Steph's DIY passport invites - pictures, instructions and advice

Recommended Posts

Wow, this is really helpful!  Especially the bits about the printing.  I would have never thought of that myself.  Thanks for the tips.

KrysP - for STD's you should send those as soon as you set the date (or at least within a few weeks of that) whether this is 6 months or 18 months ahead of time.  For invites it really varies - I sent mine 4 months ahead with RSVP 2 months ahead.  But a lot of other brides are doing it much earlier.  I think it depends on the type of event - mine is just a weekend, no travel agent involved, people picking their own travel dates.  I think the people doing a week with everyone coming and going on the same date and from the same place need to send earlier.

 

harkatea-the seal is wax and a stamp.  I forgot to add that to the list at the beginning.  I got the wax and stamp at Sam Flax (an art supply store).  Micheals has some but is pretty limited - just gold and silver wax and initial or heart stamps.  You can also do a search on line.  The wax comes in little candle sticks and you just light, drip some on the envelope and then stamp.  Some of mine came out nice and round but the majority were a little off.  but I think that gives it character.

These are amazing! I am starting to make passport STDs & was having the same debate about printing gold/silver on navy paper. Thanks for the heads up!

Fantastic job! My FSIL (who makes stationery for a living) will be making my passports, but I definitely want to include the envelope liners and wax seals - at last - something I can do myself!

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned. 
    • My daughter is getting married in Punta Cana on May 23rd, 2020. The hotel is charging a fortune for centerpieces that I can make it easily. I need a contact of wholesale florist please. To buy directly. If anyone could help I appreciate
