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 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:

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!

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
