Any 2013 Brides Out There?!!!!

Recommended Posts

Hey My 2013 Sisters!!! I have found MY STD'S Whoop Whoop thewave.gif!!!!!

Not only have I found them I ORDERED SUPPLIES 2 MAKE THEM thewave.gif!!!!!

 

OK as I did over time (on BDW lol dont tell my job) I came across the boxes that look like suitcases with the message in the bottle......

 

I LOVE them so thats it, the search is over I'm not penny pinching I want them. I'll make up for the cost some where else.

 

For some this will be all they receive because only the ppl that book are getting invitations......

 

As U can see I EXCITED!!!!!!!!

I just started the designing of the boarding pass invites and realized, I love doing them! I am having a ton of fun. What kind of card stock are you thinking for the invites? What about the holder to put them in?

Also, one issue that has me at a stand still is what to say on each one..any ideas??

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!

I ended up getting my save the dates from Vistaprint too. They turned out pretty nice and with all of the coupon codes I had, they were only $40.00 with envelopes, and retrun address stickers! I didn't want to spend a lot on STD's since these invites are going to take up time and money.

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'm a 2013 bride as well! :) Happy to see that there are so many of us!

 

I'm planning on getting married in Punta Cana around Nov/Dec of 2013. I'm deciding between Dreams PB and Paradisus Palma Real for the venue... I'm leaning towards PPR. I'll be a happy camper with either one. ;)

 

Anyone know anything about Karina Jensen (photographer)? I absolutely ***** Nova..but she's a wee-bit out of my price range.

 

Happy Planning!

We are all set for May 3, 2013 at the Majestic Elegance.  Save the Dates have been delivered, photographer and officiant secured, and plans are well under way.  So if you all are early... you are not alone! :)  Feels so much better to be preparing early on rather than later!  Some resorts book up weddings fast, and the best vendors are sometimes booked over a year in advance in Punta Cana, so we'd rather be safe than sorry!

Congrats samfords!! How exciting. Isn't it great to get the major stuff out of the way? It's easy sailing from here on out. :)

Agreed! I'm an April 2013 bride and I had the hotel, judge, photographer booked almost two months ago :)

I feel so relieved to have those things out of the way, and feel like I can have fun with the rest of the process/planning over the next year!
