    Even though my wedding isn't until next year, our travel agent secured a great deal for our guests to travel to Puerto Vallarta with us next year. Due to that fact, my invites are being sent out a month after the STD's went out! Every puts down their deposit by end August, and pays by January. yes, we are asking people to commit very early.... but if they choose not to use our TA, and get flights/ accommodations on their own, they are risking a major price increase! We know it is a lot to ask, but such is our reality for our wedding it seems!

     

    Without further delay, here are my boarding pass invites!

     

    I hope, I hope I give credit to all the right people for this!

     

    I borrowed with love templates from:

    - boarding pass template: foxytv

     

    - boarding pass INSPIRATION: ChocoTaco & multiple other brides posts

     

    - jacket template: ???? (will give post credit when I find out where I took it from!)

     

    - Letter to family & Friends: ChocoTaco

     

    - boarding pass "not a valid travel voucher"- Aylee Bits

     

    Fonts Used (downloaded from DaFont or came with the template):

    wmtrees1

    CalifornianFB

    Organic Elements

    Scriptina

    Port Credit

     

    Cost Breakdown:

    Basis Aqua cardstock- 30 pages- $13.50

    AURA Eggplant cardstock- 10 pages (ordered 70)- $4.20

    Aura Eggplant No.10 Envelopes- 50 per package- $21.33

    Printing: $49.47 at PostNet

     

    Stamps: (had a previous roll of Canadian stamps that my mom gave me) $0

    - need to get American Stamps though- so estimated cost of those is $20.00

     

    Total Cost is: $163.67 (for 30 invites)

     

    Alright, now for the fun stuff! Pictures and templates!

     

     

     

     

     All fully cut (took about 3 hours, and then cutting the indents was SUUUPPPPER fun)

     

     

     

     In the middle of rounding the corners.... amazing how different they look!

     

     ALL DONE!

     

     These took me two evenings of work. First I scored them, then folded the next day.

     

     Putting these together took me an entire evening (like 6 hours). So time consuming to properly cut, measure, and put together.

     

     

     

     

     

     The first 3 pages have this on the back of them.

     

     The return ticket has this on the back. The ones going to the states don't have a return postage though.

     

     

     

     I want to send out a HUGE thank you to ChocoTaco! Your invites were a HUGE inspiration to me, and when I read this, I just knew I had to do something similar. I used a couple lines from yours, in which you explain how life has limitations, and you understand if people cannot make it. I tired to re-write it, but your writing was absolutely perfect. THANK YOU for posting your invite, because it made making mine sooo much easier!

     

     

     

     All done and ready to be sent out! The ones out of the box are the ones being mailed to the States- I have to get stamps for them still.

     

    Templates!

    (I saved all files as a PDF in order to print them without losing the formatting)

     

    I combined these two files into a PDF to print them.

              Thanks everyone!!!!! Guess I have to wait until tomorrow before anyone starts to receive them...... No calls/ messages today! Jenn- from idea, through design, redesign, printing, cutting, putting together, i would estimate about 40 hours......all done within a week hahaha. I was a but rushed and had to get them out this week. Though the longest was definitely putting them together- that was easily 30 hours (from last tuesday to mailing them out yesterday).

                    I think the men are all impressed, cause they know they couldn't do it themselves, lol, it's like our creative side comes out!
