    I'm so glad you posted this thread. I'm super stumped myself!

        So here's what I ended up doing for invitations. Ordered these from Beach Wedlock Invitations http://www.beachwedl...a8b1a4c94026d80 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. :)

              Here is the invitation that we sent out.  Simple.  

               

               

               

               

              The entire suite looked like this.  I ordered from Wedding Paper Divas.  They were great to work with.

                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.

                 

                 

                 

                 


                Happily married to the love of my life- since July 5, 2013
