Hi Ali,
Thank you so much! Letterpress is a relief printing technique using a press which raised the surface of the type. I checked the prices at couple printing shops and 25 sets of invites (4 cards each set) it's going to cost me more then $1200.00. I didn't want to spent that much on the invites so I went DIY way.
I follow a tutorial from here http://www.boxcarpress.com/us/blog/2009/11/ and ordered a plate from them by sending in my design.

I brought the press and inks from amazon  http://www.amazon.com/Lifestyle-Crafts-Letterpress-Combo-Epic/dp/B002WZLI7U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1335498620&sr=8-1


There's two place I got the rhinestone from:
http://www.haitrim.com/ ($3.00 each)
http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B005ZA882C/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00 ($11.99 for 12)

Papers: http://www.paperpresentation.com
I hope this help. :)
Best,
Sarah

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
