Joanne's DIY Boarding Pass Invitations with Photos and Template :-)

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am new to BDW and I am still trying to decide on my exact location and date of wedding. My FI and I are considering Mid-November (2012) in Mexico (Riviera Maya area). Can anyone tell me who was married this past November (Cheers to JoanneIreland!), how the weather was? I read that hurricane season lasts through November and was wondering if they encountered a lot of rainy days? Thanks so much for the help.

And ps- I LOVE your invites! You did an amazing job!

We were just married in November and were in Mexico from November 6th to 25th. The weather was beautiful, but for the first half of the trip it rained most afternoons. Right around lunch time the rain clouds would roll in, it would pour for half an hour or so but the sun would come back out again. Remember also in November the days are shorter. I've been on holidays where I've still been laying on the beach at 7pm, but at this time of year the sunset around 5:15pm. It was perfect for us though, we were up early for breakfast, on the beach for 9, done by 3, nap and shower and ready for dinner!

Thanks! A one tier cake was included in our package. We paid $100 to upgrade to this.

I'm so in love with how you did yours!  I am debating on whether to do passports for the STD's and boarding passes for the actual invite - regardless, thanks so much for the inspiration and congrats on your wedding!

I think this is my favorite one so far.... I'm a little scared of the amount of work involved (I'm not that crafty), but the cost to have these done professionally is crazy, so we will probably go this route. thanks for posting this

Aw thank you, you are so sweet!

We saved a fortune doing DIY after pricing to have done professionally.

    • 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.
