Cherubs those are adorable. So unique. We're they expensive? Because they look it so if they weren't good for you because your guests will be none the wiser. We wanted to do boxes but after pricing them realized it was not a feasible option for us. I love your colors!

Thank you so much they were a middle ground. I worked with an amazing graphic designer to come of with the custom scheme and feel and then I assembled them and added the details the bling the charms (charms are a theme through out the week, women will have bracelets and collect charms through the different event) they were a bit more then I was initially thinking but to me invites truly set the tone. I was going for luxury casual, BOHO beach and a hint of the princess bride.

I FINALLY got my invitations! I am satisfied with the way they turned out. Yes- everyone does the Passport thing or the boarding pass thing so they aren't unique, but they are unique in terms of any wedding amongst our group of friends and family. We are the first to host a destination wedding, so we thought they'd be fun. My fiance loves them and he works in the art industry so he is picky. I feel like they are missing something but then again, I am over the top. I was thinking of adding a rhinestone to the front cover on one of the feathers, or adding  metallic chords to the binding. What do you ladies think? Leave well enough alone, or add my little touch? Mom bought a Swarovski hot gun that affixes crystals to anything so it would be subtle and easy to do but I am worried about messing them up.

I think a little gem or two on the feathers could be a cute touch. As long as you only do one or two per invite, I don't think it would make it too over the top. Very cute!

I love the idea of adding a bit of bling to the feather, I would get some tiney stones and put one in each feather. It will give a complete look, a bit of glam with out being over the top because the stones are so small.

they look great!  I vote for metallic cord. Like you said, this will be the first time most people have seen these!  I think metallic cord would up the wow factor a little without being too over the top.  Fun!

    • 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.
