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

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
