Boarding pass invitations with luggage tag RSVP's

Recommended Posts

Ok, this was my first big DIY project, and I'm really not crafty.  Fortunately, my fiance has a friend who is a graphic designer and works for a printer, so I gave him the design I wanted and he took care of the actual boarding pass itself.  The rest of it was all me.  Our colors are Tiffany Blue and Coral.  The colors in the photos may not look exact, since I took them with my iPhone. 

 

Card stock, envelopes, etc: I actually used cover stock from paperpresentation.com instead of card stock.  I wanted nice, heavy paper for the boarding pass sleeves.  Their paper quality was great and we were lucky enough that they had both of our colors in everything that we needed.  The only thing I can caution though, is that the cover stock is quite heavy.  My old printer wouldn't feed it through, so we bought a new printer (we needed one anyways), and that still would not work.  I ended up having to have it printed at Office Depot.

Thanks!  I'm sending one out today to my mom to make sure the $0.65 wedding invite postage is sufficient.  Once she gets it, assuming everything is okay, I'm sending out the rest.

Aww. How awesome!!.  Surely that will be enough!.  I know your guests will love all the hard work you put into those invites!

 

I lucked up on stamps as my company was going to throw out a ton of forever stamps.. All I had to do was cut them off of envelopes, it may not look very neat, but hey, who can complain with free?..

 

I'm taking my test DIY passport invite and RSVP postcard to my fiance this weekend. Fingers crossed he approves so I can start printing them up next week. :o)

wow...you really lucked out with the stamps.  We're sending out 87 invitations.  Between the postage for the invite itself and for the RSVP, not to mention the save the dates that we sent out a few months ago, we've spent a small fortune on stamps.

Oh my! I can only imagine!.. To be honest, I don't even know how much stamps cost!.. And I hope I don't have to find out.. lol.. For our RSVP's I was going to include a stamp, but now I have decided against it.. I figured most people will RSVP through our website and I hated to waste stamps if people weren't going to return them. Another reason why I went with the postcards, no envelope needed for them to return them :o) and they can pay for a postcard stamp which is apparently cheaper than a normal stamp.

 

Are you sending invites to everyone? Or just the people you think will come?

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
