Great Job Venus!!  You are a rockstar on this wedding stuff.  Thanks for posting- it gives me encouragement that I can attempt this on my own.  How do you put flowers and palmtrees in the background?  Do you get that in photoshop?  And the ribbon down the middle, do you glue it or tie it?

Bride81 - Thank you so much for your compliments :)  the background I did in photoshop using layers.  I was able to layer the font on top of the .jpg's.  I got the palm tree from a google search.  It was actually black, but I added a blue color overlay to it.  As for the ribbon, I just wrapped it around the sleeve and secured it with a glue dot (the kind used for scrapbooking)  I lined it up so that the ends would land right under where I wanted to put the monogram square.  That way the ends of the ribbon weren't visible.
 

 

Finleya - Thank you!  The sleeve was also from her template :)

 

Meagan816 - I bought the paper at Archivers (a chain scrapbooking store).  BUT after I spent a little too much on this paper I realized that I could have bought very similar and just as pretty paper for way cheaper from www.paperandmore.com it is WAY cheaper...you do need to by in bulk though, but I feel it's still cheaper.  Hope that helps :)

Thanks! I am getting ready to make my STD's and I wanted to make that sleeve. 

 

And I ordered my paper from paperandmore.com and for everything I needed it was very reasonable.

Wow!! I am in awe of your boarding passes, they are GORGEOUS!! I only hope my STD's will come out as beautiful as yours did! And I really love the color scheme you used. It's amazing how many of us are using this idea, but for me, none of my guests have ever heard of such an idea- Which I love!!  So different and truly from the heart when you DIY =)

    • Hello would-be-brides! I'm Gaurav, and I've been shooting weddings for over 5 years for my wedding photography business - I Don't Say Cheese. I specialize in candid photography and take great pleasure capturing the story and the essence of love that couples share. I've been shooting around India and have done many destination weddings. However, I would LOVE to cover some international weddings and build my portfolio. It doesn't hurt that I absolutely adore traveling! Back home I charge $3500 for a day's shoot but I'm offering my services for FREE for a chance to shoot your wedding.  You can see my work on my website and on my instagram page. I'd love to discuss the possibilities with you so feel free to reply here or contact me through the website/instagram. You can see a sample set of a wedding I recently shot in Kerela, India here. Wishing you lots of love and luck for your big day!  
    • I'm looking to see if anyone has had a wedding at Dreams Riviera Cancun or any other resorts in Cancun with around 60 guests and could let me know how much they paid TOTAL for the ceremony, cocktail, and dinner reception. This includes flowers, decor, makeup hair, DJ, and all misc.  Thank you!
    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
