    When I first discovered BDW I fell in LOVE with all of the boarding pass invitations and the passport style invitations. I have never seen anybody doing anything like this for weddings around here, ever, and I knew I would BLOW people's minds if I did something like this.


    There was a lot of personal deliberation but I finally decided to go with the passport style for our wedding invitations which we sent out ages ago to give people as much time as possible to book and start paying - we are getting married on a cruise, on embarkation day (before the ship leaves port in Florida).


    With much help from Allurements by Rebecca who designed the passports and our fabulous monogram for us, we totally wowed our guests and family members with our passport invitations. People are still talking about them! A great success.


    Of course I was still wistful about the boarding pass invitations.. lol.. so when my MOH told me we need to do the invitations for my bridal shower I wanted to do boarding passes!

    I try to keep stuff from my MOH and BM's to surprise them, but I seriously could not have done these without them.. even with a paper cutter, doing all the little trimmings and cutting, then folding the frigging cardstock - oh I couldn't find a bulk pack of turquoise card stock (and it was impossible to find metallic turquoise) so I found a "Cape Cod" pack of 50 cardstock at Michael's for $3.99 - this pack of 50 had 10 each of the original turquoise color I wanted, then 10 of two other blues which were more aqua or tiffany blue, but I figured this is the cheap way to go so let's use those too! So that's why you'll see different color blues... Oh and I bought a starfish/sand dollar punch but I couldn't get it in the position I wanted so I didn't use it. The raffia took me forever to find, couldn't find the natural color at Michaels, couldn't find it at the dollar store, finally found it in the vase/fake flower section at Walmart.

    We're doing a 'cruise theme' bridal shower in a big hall we're renting, and we're planning to decorate with even lounge chairs and inflatable pool toys, etc., so I kept with the 'your ticket to paradise' theme of the boarding passes and this is what I came up with!

    Lol.. the raffia bows were very nice and neat and trimmed in the beginning.. from the time we started to the time we were done it took us six hours.. so by midnight when we were done the bows were kinda raggedy..


    Thank you to the more-then-one boarding pass templates from fellow BDW brides that I mooched off of! You guys and your creativity never ceases to amaze me!

            These are great!  We're doing the boarding pass invites, and I'm guessing it's going to take a lot of patience (which I don't have, but thank goodness my FI does)

                    Thank you for your post! I have been trying to figure out wording for the Bridal Shower invites that clearly states we are doing a destination wedding and that we see this as an opportunity for guests to celebrate with us. Hope you don't mind if I use your wording. I think you did a great job by keeping it concise.


                    Great job on your invites!
