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!

    • Thanks for your good list.  I also love Marry Me and I'm Yours. 
    • I haven’t seen any recent info on wedding at the Now Amber PV. Has anyone had their wedding there recently? Any feedback etc. My daughter booked her wedding for 5/15/20 so any info would be greatly appreciated. 
    • Good list! I bet it got folks moving!
    • Hey fellow wedding planners. When me and my wife planned our wedding I started making playlists both for the reception and for the dance floor.  I wanted it to be more towards indie and alternative music and since I started sharing the playlists on Facebook and other social media I got so much appreciation I wanted to make them available to others planning their wedding. For the reception Will you marry me? Let's play this at our wedding - INDIE / FOLK / ALTERNATIVE For the dance floor I Bet You Look Good On The Dance Floor - Indie Party Anthems I also have a few other playlists that might be of interest for playing at a wedding It's all about JAZZ Fabulous Fingerpicking Folk (Bob Dylan, Simon & Garfunkle, Bright Eyes, Iron & Wine, Beatles etc) 88 Keys Of Magic - Contemporary Piano - Jazz / Neo Classical and More Fingers, Wood, Nylon and Steel - Contemporary Acoustic Guitar Instrumental Chill Out Gems Hope it can be of help or maybe just inspiration for your own wedding playlist! Let me know what you think!   Flag  Quote  Agree  Like
