I love the passport idea however I'm stuck on if it it will look tacky to use a passport for both or if I should only do it for one. Thoughts?

 

Also I know the save the date should go out ASAP, but what info should be on it? And how far out before the wedding are you sending out the invites?

I made my own... I did Luggage tags for save the dates and boarding pass for invitation....

 

I used Microsoft word and then clipped images i found off google images or clip art etc.

 

I think you could do passports for the invites and boarding passes for dave the dates? or luggage tags??

Hey!

 

I would suggest a passport invite and maybe a boarding pass or luggage tag STD???

 

I honestly only did an invite. We booked our resort 9 months out and sent the invites 8.5 months out.  For us, there wasn't time to do both.

 

I would include the wedding date and week.... the resort, and also your wedding website if you have one made by the time you send them out.  Do a search on here of STD and you will find a tonne to reference.

I concur with everyone that you maybe do a simpler STD like a boarding pass or a luggage tag.

 

I was going to do boarding pass STD/passport invite, but decided to scrap the STD and just send our invites super early.  I'm using the boarding passes as the invites now.  Saves us some money on fancy paper & printing, plus it saves me a pile of time.  After spending hours and hours on the boarding pass, I realize it's no small feat doing DIY invites!

 

We're getting married Jan 6, 2016, and we're hoping to have the invites ready to go out this weekend.

I also did boarding pass invites. Took some time, I agree. But oh so lovely. The passports also are a great idea but would definately take more time :)

Just my personal opinion, I would do the passport for the invitation. You will want to include more information in the invitation most likely so the passport set up is awesome for including a lot of details. 

 

I kept the STDs pretty simple. It was just a postcard with a picture of the destination, the date, a bit of resort info, and our wedding website. Those went out a year before our DW. I was super intent on giving people lots of time to plan & save so that may be excessive for some.

 

The invites were sent out in October for my March wedding. It all worked out pretty well because most of my guests had already confirmed that they were attending by October but it gave some a reminder to deposit/reserve and final payment was due at the end of the year so it was pretty good timing. 

 

I'll attach our save the date... it was a BIG hit with guests. They honestly liked them more then I had expected.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
