OMG Venus909!  You are soooo inspiring.  You are MARTHA STEWART in my eyes!  All your DIY are absolutely gorgeous.  I just came across these STD's.  I want to go the same route you did.  Then do a passport invitation.  I also saw your wedding website - I love the added touches of music.  Think I may do the same!!!  (I swear I am not stalking you - just coming across a lot of your posts)  LOL!

 

I am recently engaged (Christmas Day 2011) and we are planning a April 2013 destination wedding in Playa del Carmen (Riu Palace Riviera Maya)  We just need to confirm the Easter School Break for 2013 for my FI's son, Jake.  They will not guarantee it's the week following Easter (Mon 4/1- Fri 4/5).  The schedule will take another few weeks to be confirmed so I am sort of at a stand still until I get Jake's week/break confirmed.  Although I have started talking to Wendy Hicks at Wright Travel & started talking to the Riu.  

 

Such an exciting time - my first wedding/FI (Bill's 2nd).

 

How soon did you send your STD's?  Did you purchase the template from Aylee's Bits or did you use her sample one?  

 

Best of luck to you!  You truly are such an inspiration.

 

Warm regards,

 

Elissa :-)

I had to make almost 100 of them and I couldn't find enough of the orange sheets of paper, so I made them in 2 color schemes.  The colors for my wedding are Orange (mango), Fuschia (watermelon), and light blue (pool)

On the back of each "pass" I printed "This is not a valid voucher"  but I don't have a picture of that.

 

 

Thanks for looking!

Elissae - Congrats on your engagement! I definitely know how hard it is to coordinate dates with the school schedules!  I have three kids and had to make sure I picked a date after they got out for summer break.  Thank you so much for your compliments and kind words :)  I do love to the DIY projects...lol.  Stalk away!  I try to post as much as I can in hopes to give others Ideas.  I have gotten soooo many ideas from this site I just want to pay it forward where I can.

 

I sent my STDs out at the end of May last year, so about a year in advance.  I wanted to give my guests as much time as possible to save $ and vacation days. I think around the 1 year mark is a good time.  I used the free boarding pass from Alyee Bits.  I downloaded it and imported it into photoshope and designed it from there.  For my passports I did purchase the template from Alyee Bits, but I changed it almost completely.  All I used was the background.  I imported into Adobe Illustrator and designed it from there.  Some elements I did in photoshop.

 

Feel free to ask any questions you have.  I'll help out as much as I can.  If you end up making the boarding passes and/or the passports, please share them when they are done.  I'd love to check them out ;)

Possibly a silly question but I am new to this and have so much to learn... How does everyone have a hotel and such picked out so far in advance without knowing flight schedules and resort prices? Do you not need to have a resort somewhat booked before all of the STDs and invites and such go out?

Hi! Kwhite...

 

I actually didn't sent out the STDs till I had a deposit put down on a resort.  I worked with a Travel Agent and he was able to help me get pricing and package info.  It took some time since the resort didn't have the 2012 pricing finalized when I started looking, but the TA was able to help me secure that info. I would suggest having a date secured with a venue whether it be a resort or restaurant or something else before sending out your STDs.

 

Have you started working with a TA?

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
