Any 2013 Brides Out There?!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi skyy. Congrats!!!

I am also getting married next year and I can relate with you I have been engaged for two years.

The idea of the boarding passes for the STD is also my theme, (good taste girl). but I am having such a hard time finding someplace cheap. I have currently found the Esty website, but I am not convinced.

I am soooo excited that there is so many ppl getting married down in DR super cool.

Congratulations on your big day!!

Mine is July 11th 2013 - I am on the verge of reserving Ocean Blue for our resort.

I mailed my save the date magnets last month, but also plan on doing the boarding passes and/or passport invites as well once I have the rest of the details confirmed.

It's so exciting to plan and see what others are doing as well!! :D

So far we have reserved our date, ceremony, and reception location; I still do not have any package prices. I made save-the-dates on vista print one day just playing around but now I think I want boarding passes. This is the problem planning so far in advance the more I look the more I like. Again Congratulations and Iâ€ll be talking with you all. Skyy

@ Chula I found some on Etsy ( Sproulliedesigns) for $3.50 per STD but I need a whopping 100. I only need the pass ($2.00) and sleeve ($1.50). Is it me or do you agree $350.00 is a lot for STDâ€s

 

 

 Hey Chula and Missjade, Whoop Whoop to us 2013 Brides!!!!!! Ok Ladies I having a problem, the vista print STDâ€s are sooooo cheap but I want those boarding passes BAD. I would try to make them myself but if I spend the money on all the supplies and they donâ€t turn out right I will be beyond ticked off. Iâ€m very picky!!!!!!

Hey sky

 

Im a 2013 bride who's getting married at the paradisus palma real. I actually ordered some save the dates as boarding passes from mypersonalartist.com. I found them on pinterest. I believe they were 2.25 or so for 50 and the cost is lowered the more you get! Theyre pretty simple but are cute.

I say make them yourself... $350 is A LOT. I made my and stole some ideas from the brides who posted theirs. What I would say is get a theme first that way you know the premise to which you want them to circle around (ex. palm trees, coral, starfish, etc). I bought supplies from ebay, cards and pockets, enveloppe inc and amazon. With all the supplies, plus brochure and magnets from vistaprint for 89 invitations I paid $198.00 and I still have lots of paper, ribbon and other things left over for tags and other projects. 

 

Should you need help let me know...

Hey there! I can definitely relate… I too loved the boarding pass invites, but didnâ€t want to pay the premium for a professional custom design. While I was intrigued by the DIY idea, I tend to obsess over details and didnâ€t want my invites to look like an elementary school art project.  But after looking through dozens of successful projects on this site, I was finally encouraged. I admit, Iâ€m on my 4th boarding pass design, but this one is a definite winner (the first 3 design were subpar). Anyway, Iâ€m now 100% committed to this project and have started to purchase my supplies and I have oodles of samples on the way of pearlescent/metallic cardstock, satin ribbon and pearlescent and matte raffia ribbon etc. If you have the time, I would suggest dabbling around with design ideas and see what you think.  Good luck!

Skyy - 

 

I shopped around and made sure that I was getting the lowest price on everything. So where one website had it for lower then the next (including shipping). When it comes to saving I will go through the Internet and make sure I left no stone unturned.  My mother and sister lives in AC, and my grandmother lives in Pleasantville.

I was in the same boat...I REALLY wanted boarding pass STDs....but given that I needed 100 of them, it was just toooooo expensive.

I went with postcard STD's from Vistaprint and I was really happy with them. I got a lot of compliments, and that made me feel good! You could order the envelopes to go with them, as well as return address labels to match too....so I think they turned out ok. I'll attach a pic of the front - on the back I paid the extra for colour printing and wrote some more details about our plans, put our wedding website address, etc.

 

I am going to do passport invites for sure, but only to people who are likely to be coming, and I'll send them out after most people have booked (about 4 months prior to the wedding).

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
