OK to use the Boarding Pass Template for Actual Invites?

Recommended Posts

I had already come up with my invitation design ... but have fallen in love with the Boarding Pass STD's so many of you have done.

 

So ... is it okay to use those Boarding Pass templates for the actual invitations (since my postcard STD's already went out this past spring)?

 

I showed Tom what I was doing last night and he thought it was cool, but my Mom thinks some people might think its too informal or even tacky, especially for our older family members.

 

What do you think?

 

BOARDING PASS INVITE: I'm attaching what I have so far (the "Return Ticket" would actually be last as the RSVP card that can be sent back as a postcard ... but I have it in the wrong order on here).

 

MORE FORMAL INVITE: Also attached. Pretty straightforward, except it will be on smaller paper and trimmed down.

 

I would also include a single page "newsletter" type form with the more detailed information in either invitation.

I say go for it. I love creative invites. I don't think older guest will think they are tacky. I actually think they will enjoy them the most. I made some crazy invites for a wedding shower that I was worried some people would hate. Once they went out I got a bunch of phone calls from people saying they were so cool. The older ladies liked them too. They were in clear envelopes so the addresses were written on colorful paper inside. I think as long as the invites are clear & easy to understand, people will like them & appreciate your creativity.

 

My former boss got an invite that was a plastic box full of water and plastic fish. You read the invite through the water. Unfortunately something went wrong with hers & the water was dark brown & smelled bad. It was hard to read the invite through it. But she still thought it was awesome because it was so original.

That is exactly what we did Tami! We had planned to do a "formal" invite and the boarding passes as our STD's but since we have a fairly small, intimate group of family going we decided to have fun with it and send the boarding passes. I know they will enjoy receiving the boarding passes more than a formal invite.

I am planning on using the boarding pass for our formal invite (and include our AHR information on there). I am so for doing whatever you want for your wedding. There are no rules.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
