Hi Ladies-

 

I just wanted to share my journey to invitations! I was so back and forth with everything, but I knew I wanted passport invites.  After getting inspired by all the ladies on this forum, I decided to go for it.  Since I had to do over 100, I figured I would only do passport invites for the people that I know are coming, then do something simpler for other invited guests.  So, I will show you that attempt.  In the end, I decided to make passport invites for everyone!  It was definitely a labor of love.

Attempt#1 - I created these and I liked them, but thought it might be a little too formal:

Attempt#2: Then I thought these would be more fun, but I didnt like they way they looked printed.

So, in the end, I made the following for eveyone:

With some complimentary pieces documents:

1.  RSVP card that I made with cardstock and had some purple paper from papers and more to do the purple ribbon header.

2.  Registry Info.  Just made this with regular cardstock in Word.  My logo came from Aylee

3.  The business card is a card with the photoshare info.  I created a free photoshare website on shutterfly, so this business card has the info for that.  I got the business card free from Vistaprint.  Just had to pay shipping.

4.  The passport are from Aylee templates (only $10).  The paper came from Joanne's fabric.  The prices for the paper ranged from 4/$1 or $3/1 (so for .25 or .33 I was able to create 2 passport covers). I would wait until there was a sale and buy all of that purple color they had.  And I also bought some of the white paper since that was nice as well.  So, I did like 25% white, then the rest in purple.  I printed them on my home computer and the cardstock came from some I had at home (probably from office depot) and the other half I ordered from papers and more (which I love).  I had to purchase a paper cutter to do all this (what the background of the pic is).  It was $39.99 in Office depot.  I originally bought a smaller one from Joanne's fabric, but this one was 100 times easier. I have not calculated total cost, but probably spent $60 on ink, $20 in paper, and $30 for envelopes (I ended up printing the addresses on them one by one in my printer), and $40 in supplies.  The paper and supplies I get to reuse and that includes all of these items and not just them invites.  I ended up making about 115-120 of these! Yikes!

I also had the following RSVP until I ran out.  These I got free from Vistaprint for 100 of them.  After I ran out of these, I made the RSVP card you see pictured above.

Hope that helps someone!  I'm not creative at all, but I somehow did this from all the wonderful advice from this forum! So, thank all the ladies for sharing!

Thanks so much and I used a 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper and cut that in half.  So, I was able to create two passport for every sheet of paper.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
