My Invitations came from a local company that uses one of those horrible invitations books. I brought her my idea of what I wanted my invites to look like  and luckily for me the vendor helped me customize an invitation she said we could choose any motif, paper, and ink color as long as it was in the same book.  we didn't have to search the book ourselves she found it and sent to the printer the layout I had already customized.  It saved us a ton of money, I was originally going to go custom from a stationary boutique, but it was so expensive.   I hate those invitation books because they are so cookie-cutter but if you look past the samples in the book you can make something remarkable.

So here's what I ended up doing for invitations. Ordered these from Beach Wedlock Invitations http://www.beachwedlockinvitations.com/beach-wedding-invitations-beach-invitations-passport-invitations-bonus-rsvpbr18790-p-1183.html?osCsid=812017e4408eb9619a8b1a4c94026d80 and they came with everything you see pictured. I just had to fold these up, loop on the gold cord (arrived pre-tied) and stuff them in the gold-lined envelopes. You can customize these with any colors you like and can use a color photo, I just happened to like this black and white photo of us so I used it. They also offer other cute passport covers that are more beachy-themed, but I liked the idea of these looking like real passports.

 

100 invites + tear-off RSVP cards, pre-addressed return RSVP envelopes and gold-lined mailing envelopes + shipping= $295

 

Figured that was cheaper than what I could make them for so I went for it! The seller worked with me on several revisions until we had it just right and they were super fast. I'd recommend!

Those are really cute, and what a GREAT price!  A little part of me (a part that I refuse to acknowledge most of the time, lol) wishes I had done a little more shopping around before I decided to make my own invitations.  Mine won't be passports or boarding pass or anything, but I couldn't find anything I liked so I bought all my paper and am just having them printed.  They're going to be about $4 each when it's all said and done, and they will be a lot of work.  You live, you learn!

But at least you can take pride in making them yourself! And I'm sure your guests will love them, so it'll be worth it in the end. :)

My Save The Dates and invitations DO NOT match- we went with these quirky Save the Dates because we are both funny characters. We also had not nailed down a Theme for our wedding but needed to send out Save The Dates so people could start booking. I ordered the Save the Dates from Wedding Paper Divas. We made business cards for our Travel Agent to hang up with the Save The Date magnets. We bought envelope seals from staples and address labels for our printer:

Our invitations are being made by a woman named Ana DeRoux. You can check out her designs on FB. I think her prices are reasonable. This pic isn't our invitations- but its the ones we ordered. Ours won't arrive for 3-4 more weeks. We are changing the colors of the peacock feathers to navy blue, teal, and aqua. We are taking out the Purple and gree.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
