Our Beachy DIY Boarding Pass Invitations!

Recommended Posts

We have finally finished and sent out our Boarding Pass Invitations! We came up with the idea for boarding pass invitations from this site and a friend of ours that is a graphic designer created them, made them pretty and had them printed for us. One night me, my fiancee and a girlfriend of mine made all of the invitation folders (60 in total) over a few glasses of wine (me) and beer (them). We were really happy with the way they turned out and have gotten great feed back so far!

 

The paper and envelopes we bought from a place in New Westminster called the Paper Poet. The rest of the materials were from Michaels, and I have gathered it all for quite some time, with coupons. We ended up having to pay oversized postage because of the knots that we tied with the raffia and bows...it wouldn't fit through the "regular" sized slot at the post office. Darnit! Oh well, at  least we only had 60 invitations to send! I'd do it all over again, too, because I love them!

 

If anyone has any questions, just let me know! I'd be happy to help if I could! Thanks to everyone that has posted similar invitations and folders. You are all the inspiration that we needed to come through with these on our own!

 

Here are all three pages of the invitation. On the first page is an actual working QR code, so you could scan it with a QR scanner and it would take you straight to our wedding website! Pretty cool! Not sure how many people actually scanned it, though.

Here is what was printed on the back of each page.

Here is a shot of the pages, that we clipped together at the top left corner with a silver brad and flowers.

We didn't take a picture of the mailing envelope, but they were a pearl-ish white and we printed clear address labels that had our heart logo on the return address label. Then we had stickers with our logo and wedding date that we put on the backs of the envelope. Yay! So exciting that they are done!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
