Our DIY/Vista-print Invitations are done!!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone!

 

We finished our invitations last night, and I thought I would post them to share! We are just waiting for our personalized stamps to arrive and then they will be going in the mail. eeeek, so excited!!!

 

 

 

 

This is a travel insert with just some basic general info about the resort and Mexico for those that haven't been. We put a lot more detailed info on our website.

This is our RSVP postcard.

This is a pic of the invite with the background, pocket-fold, and belly band.

This is all the components together, except for the QR code cards

Here are our QR code cards. FI is in IT and he wanted to add this, i though ti t was a great idea:). The code links to our wedding website when you scan it with your smartphone.

Here's the finished invite. We also put a small business sized card in that our TA gave us with all her contact info and the resort name and date.

And here is the finished invite with the belly band on it.

And, here is the finished envelope with mailing labels.

The travel inserts, RSVP's, invitations, return mailing labels and QR code cards were all ordered through Vistaprint. I designed everything myself but I used their floral pattern template. Including a Groupon I purchased and use of free links, all our Vistaprint stuff came to around $48.

 

The pocketfolds, envelopes and green colored paper were all ordered from envelopes.com. I was contemplating making the pocketfolds from cardstock, but with being in school full-time and working part-time, I thought that it might take too long. For 60 pocket folds, 100 sheets of paper, and 100 envelopes it cost us around $80.

 

The mailing labels I made myself using Word and just printed them on full sheet sticker paper and cut them out.

 

The belly bands were made by myself in Word and printed on regular printer paper. 

 

All in all for 60 invites (and lots of leftover supplies) we spent around $140.

Hi Ashleigh!! 

 

I don't think they have names, but here's the link to the postcard:

 

http://www.vistaprint.ca/vp/ns/studio3.aspx?pf_id=084&combo_id=92883&combo=51193.110.59.95809%7c95809%7c137%7c0&uei=100349&ag=true&ssc=1&filter=4%3a10003%7c%7c1%2c11%3a10016%7c%7c1%2c80%3a10478%7c%7c1%2c9%3a10013%7c%7c1%2c3%3a10002%7c%7c1&xnav=previews&xnid=image_2&rd=2&ref=1&referer=http%3a%2f%2fwww.vistaprint.ca%2fgallery%2fEAMAAAABAAMAAAA%3d%2fpostcards%2fgreen-flower.aspx%3ffilter%3d4%253a10003%257c%257c1%252c11%253a10016%257c%257c1%252c80%253a10478%257c%257c1%26xnav%3dpopsearch

 

They also have a matching image (search under their images for 'green flower' and you should be able to find it), which is what I used for the invite. I just created the back of the RSVP myself on Word and saved it as an image and uploaded it. I did the same for the wording on the invites and then just added the vistaprint image along the side.

Ok, for some reason the link is not working properly... If you go under the postcard section under marketing materials, and search for "green flower", it comes up on the first page!

    • Congratulations to Wedding Planners and Families of Bride and Groom. Cheapfaremart, an Orlando based Online Travel Agency offers Cheap Group Flights for Wedding Group also.
    • Thanks! I would love to get quotes from a TA but as I said I have a hard time finding a specialized one in Canada. I hope someone can point me to the right direction. 
    • The use of TA is instrumental in booking a destination wedding for several reasons: Namely, TAs have special rates and promos they can offer you, including perks of complimentary rooms and upgrades. Wright Travel actually has a Bride & Groom Fly Free Promo, which gives couples up to $1,000 cash back. These are perks you can take advantage of by working with a TA. Also, most agencies also do not charge any service fee, so you are essentially having the expertise and convenience of a travel agent without paying a dime. Experienced agents will also have valuable insight into the best property to host your wedding, and if they are familiar with your resort, they can also offer you and your guests tips on how to make your stay even better. Good TAs will also have close connections wiht the wedding department, essentially benefiting you throughout the planning process. Securing a room block is also important to ensure your resort does not run out of rooms and also to secure a group rate. Lastly, having a travel agent handle you and your guests travel plans is vital so that you don't have to deal with it. Anything can happen when it comes to travel and if you don't have an agent, your guests will turn to you for help. As a former destination wedding bride, I did not work with a TA and I regretted it. Having to answer a million questions from guests on where to stay, where to book, where to go, drove me nuts. When it comes down to the final stretch of the wedding, it was the last thing I wanted to do when I already had a million things on my plate wedding wise.  Here's a more in depth article regarding the benefits of using a TA.  https://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/wedding-tips/c/planning/10-reasons-why-you-should-use-wright-travel-agency-for-your-destination-wedding-r2439/  
    • We actually did our legal wedding at home -- a quick and easy ceremony at the local courthouse about a week before our destination wedding. Afterwards, we just went to lunch and shared a few celebratory cocktails 😊We did this so we didn't have to deal with the legal requirements (arriving early, blood test, etc.) you must abide by in Mexico. For us it worked out perfectly and our ceremony in Mexico was our official wedding with all our family and friends. 
    • Hi there, So I read a lot of you recommended to go through a TA rather than booking things yourself so I tried to reach out but haven't really been successful. I wrote to Wright Travel not realizing that they were only serving the US. So all I really need is actually the booking of the hotel and the wedding arrangements. Most of our guests will stay at that hotel but I know some of them will probably look for other options. Our guests will arrange their own flights as they are coming from different countries (Canada and Europe) and I don't see group flights coming together as they will all stay different length of time. So my questions are, why exactly would I need a travel agency to book the hotel and the wedding? I worked in event management for years and have organised events way bigger than that and could probably organise it myself. If we decide to go with a TA, does anyone have any recommendation for a Canadian TA? Thanks all!
