    I've got all the goods and am ready to start putting this DIY project in action! However I'm  having a major brain block on what the scroll should say. Also what inserts should be added for this destination wedding I'm having two receptions one at the resort and one when we arrive we also have a travel agent we would like our guests to go through...just wondering if anyone has any cute ideas on inserts for this? We are planning on having people RSVP online through our website...is this tacky?

      Hi There!!


      In terms of your inserts, it would depend on if you wanted to have something fun and useful such as a customized information sheet on your hotel listing activities or a list of things to bring to destination. If you are travelling to a destination where they speak another language, you could include funny phrases translated from English to whichever language. If you want to make the inserts to tell guests about two receptions, you could have separate inserts with a complimentary theme such as; night and day depending on when your receptions will be taking place, possibly location if they will be in different settings (beach luxury vs. indoor luxury). If you tell me more specifically what information you would like to include on the inserts I can probably come up with a few more ideas. As for the RSVP online, please don't worry that it will come across tacky- it won't. It is much more convenient for you and probably will be for most of your guests as well. This is getting more popular and very common with destination weddings. Since you already have a wedding website that guests are going to in order to get information it shouldn't be any trouble to RSVP on the same site. Most importantly, it's your wedding, do it your way :) 


      Goodluck with everything

                My friend did this... she included information about the wedding and a casual message to family and friends.  I think she put in more information then I would recommend (it was rather lengthy and hard to read because it kept curling up).
