    Hi Everyone!

     

    I've been following this thread for awhile now....admiring all of the amazing DIY projects everyone is doing.  I figured I would do my own invites for our Mexico wedding in October.  Wanted to share what my FI and I came up with ... Coronita message in a bottles.  All said and done, 42 bottles later and about $3 for shipping each box via USPS, we still ended up around the same cost as if we were to purchase invitations from a real vendor.  Such a fun project...now I need to start working on our welcome books and bags!!  I have somehow turned into a DIY Queen, as I'm sure many of us have. :)

                Thanks!  And Yes, of course we HAD to make an excuse to drink them all.  We got them for $5.24 per 6 pack at the local Mexican mart.  Practically free for invitations being we drank them anyway. :)

                what a fabulous idea!  I'm sure if we did something like this my FI would have wanted to be involved with making (and drinking) these invitations!
