    And @menryluvco-- these could TOTALLY work for a Vegas wedding. Martha also had this example, which would be perfect: http://www.marthaste...h-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.beachwedl...a8b1a4c94026d80, 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.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!

              I need to do this! And yours turned out beautifully.

               

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