Okay Ladies, these are finally done. Thank you so much for all the wonderful posts and pics on this site, I wouldn't of been able to pull this off on my own. It also helped that my sister is a graphic designer so I told her the invites I liked and what I wanted as details and she created the invites and the labels. This it was up to me to cut, score, perferate, punch, glue and cut some more :) I would not call myself crafty so if I can pull this of then everyone can. I made 140 of these invites and sent them out about a month ago, I instantly had comments about how awesome they were....most people didn't even know they were DIY. It made it totally worth the 2-3 weeks of cramping hands :)

 

I did not have any supplies so I bought a Personal paper trimmer from Michaels with a scoring and perfrating blade.

I also bought a corner cutting tool which was so helpful and I used it on my invites and the sleeves.

I bought all my cardstock and envelopes from paperandmore.com and I found some great wrapping paper at Target that I used for the liner I created for the envelopes!

 

I would attach the template for the invite itself but it is in PDF and I am having my sister blackout our address before I post :) Sorry the pictures are poor, I took them with my phone :(

 

Here is the invite itself...it has 3 pages with the last one a RSVP that can be detached and sent to us...I connected all 3 with a small square brad.

This one is of the sleeve - I used a "Fun in the Sun" stamp on the corner, cut at an angle and then glued the end so the invite wouldn't fall out

I used ribbon raffia from from The Container Store to close the sleeve

Here is a pic of the envelope liner, I don't think it was needed but I thought it looked cool and gave the whole thing a pop

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
