And @menryluvco-- these could TOTALLY work for a Vegas wedding. Martha also had this example, which would be perfect: http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/226949/scratch-save-date-how

 

 

Whoops, this is what I meant to include as the other scratch-off example that I saw on Martha Stewart:

Well that was pretty much the extent of my craftiness, and I have seen/loved the passport invitations other brides have made, but i didn't trust myself to do them all on my own. I found this site http://www.beachwedlockinvitations.com/beach-wedding-invitations-beach-invitations-passport-invitations-bonus-rsvpbr18790-p-1183.html?osCsid=812017e4408eb9619a8b1a4c94026d80,'>http://www.beachwedlockinvitations.com/beach-wedding-invitations-beach-invitations-passport-invitations-bonus-rsvpbr18790-p-1183.html?osCsid=812017e4408eb9619a8b1a4c94026d80, which has authentic-looking passports for a decent price. They're not as cute as the DIY ones I've seen other brides make, but there's no work involved for me and the price was right. I ordered 100, including tear-off RSVP cards and envelopes and shipping for $295. Should get them next week or so and I'll be sure to share!!

 

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!

My tendency to go overboard is kicking in and I'm already googling custom stamped coins LOL
