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.
