I had never even heard of boarding pass invitations before I joined this forum, so when I first saw them on here, I went through pretty much every boarding pass thread I could find. Thank you to so many ladies whose templates and pictures helped me SO much: Aylee, Becks, Island Princess, Jennie0521, BeckyN, Shoesiesluvr and many more. I also saw jmb0902â€s circular return address labels, and I knew I wanted to incorporate them: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/39572/diy-return-address-labels-pics.


I'm not sure if I started with Aylee's template, but I'm sure whichever one I used came from her originally.


I designed the boarding passes and address labels in Word, and the monogram, return address label and ticket jacket in PowerPoint. I love the end result!


We had to make about 100 invitations, so the assembly was quite a project. Together, my FI and I did all the scoring, folding, gluing, cutting, corner punching, stuffing, belly banding and sealing. It was quite a task.




  • Straight cutters – Fiskars and X-acto (I prefer the Fiskars), Michaels
  • Corner punch – Fiskars, Michaels
  • Bone folder and scoring board – Martha Stewart, www.Save-on-crafts.com
  • Adhesive for bottom seam of the ticket jackets and belly bands: Elmerâ€s Craft Bond dual tip pen, Michaels (this stuff is cheap and awesome but a bit messy)




  • Boarding passes and monograms on belly bands: Snow White 110lb cardstock, www.cardsandpockets.com, $32/200 sheets
  • Ticket jackets: Tabriz blue 110lb cardstock, www.cardsandpockets.com, $19/100 sheets
  • Black cardstock for belly bands: 65lb, Michaels, $1.50/25 sheets
  • Blue belly band ribbon: 1.5†wide, Michaels, $4/roll. We used approximately 6 rolls.
  • Envelopes: Nero (black) No. 10 envelopes, www.envelopperinc.com, $23.80/100 (nice heavy quality)
  • Wraparound labels: full page labels, Staples, $6/25 sheets


Total cost (not including tools which I had or were Christmas presents): $106

Approximate cost per invitation: $ 1.06



Belly Band measurements:

Ribbon: 8†x 1.5â€

Black cardstock: 8.5†x 1.75â€


Belly band monogram measurements:

Black backing square: 2†x 2â€

Monogram square: 1.75†x 1.75â€



If you want to use the template, the downloaded fonts I used were Old Script and Wmtrees1 from www.dafont.com. Without these, these templates might look wonky.














I'll post pics in the next post...

Good job! Love that shade of blue. The "ribbon" (?) that you had around the boarding passes folder is a very nice touch! Thanks for sharing all the details!

Thanks! It is indeed just satin 1.5" ribbon. I thought it added a little something while still keeping a simple look.

Acieta, thanks so much for sharing. I'm getting super excited about starting to do our invites. I think this may be a bridesmaids' "get together" task rather than FI because I got frustrated when he put the labels and postage for the STDs slanted.. lol. Love learning more and more about things we do well and not so much.:-)

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
