    I attached my pre-travel brochure for you to look at ...maybe there is something in there that will catch your eye :)

     

    By the way, when you look at the PDF on screen it wont read properly, as its saved in print format for booklet printing. These were printed double sided, folded and then stitched like a little book :) the file on screen is set up as spreads. But at least you will see the info i included :)

     

     

     

     

     

    I sent these out at the begining of Sept, so just short of 2 months before we leave. I included a packing list and luggage tag....the whole kit was really popular and people loved getting them. I have everything on my camera of the final assembled kits, i just havent had an opportunity to load them yet since i am leaving in a week there are a million things going on :) i will as soon as i can so you ladies can see them :)

    In your package you are mailing out this month, what are you including? We are doing something similar, we are sending a pocketfold invitation -informal but want to include some information and luggage tags too. I am having a hard time to try and figure out what to put and the wording. Any thoughts or ideas of what you are including would be appreciated. Thanks!

        Thanks for the info!!  I was on vistaprint last night checking things out.  Saw a couple I liked but none that I loved.  I want to send them out with my invites.  The search continues!!

I will be using bright ribbon in our colour to attach them. I;m sending them out with our thanks for booking/information brochure that we will be mailing at the end of this month!

         

         

         

         

         



        @luvmoo - Love the favours!!  I am too doing a starfish theme.  I will have to check the website you provided for starfish moulds.  I bought something similar at Michael's but not really a starfish that I liked.

              These are amazing, Janet! So classy!  Love the font and the clean look of it all... Super nice!

               

              AM I've attached mine. I used publisher to make a brochure, and I plan on printing everything through vistaprint! I was working on it late last night so I still need to edit/revise before I send it off, but this is what I have so far:

                Another great find on BTR today. Just bought a dress for our rehearsal dinner. There are 4 super cute white dresses, plus some possible BM dresses at the Sandra Darren sale....All dresses are 44.99! I just ordered the first one :)

                  These are really great! I'm also incorporating starfish into the wedding and am using fake starfish bought in the US as the place cards - they'll serve as favors too I guess! I'll put the guests name on one side and our names on the other with the wedding date. I was also thinking about turning it into a magnet by gluing little magnets to the back but haven't decided yet.

                  I also got the large sugar starfish for my arch, and decoration.. i got them from Ebay believe it or not.. from a company by the name of Florida Shells and gifts. the sellers name was " anyname99"  got them for a decent price.. they came super well packed, and not one broke!! they are awesome! mine are all about 8' starfish so they were perfect!!

                   

                  My wedding favors are the white finger starfish, with little tags with our names on them and our wedding date.. they are adorable.. i got them from hansonellis.com 

                  ( picture off of the net shown below. )

                  Then, for the small starfish for the backs of my chairs on the sashes, i got them for super cheap from orientaltrading.com  :)

                   

                  Hope that helps!!!!!!
