Hi guys,

I need to ask your help on this. I have been planning on using a passport template for my save the dates, and I pretty much had every detail planned for them. In the mail today I get my friend's wedding invitation and guess what her invitation is?? A passport! She's not having a destination wedding but the theme of her wedding is "around the world". Now I feel like I can't do the passport any more because of this. The template I was planning on using does look much different from hers (in case that matters). I have heard a few different opinions on what I should do so I'm torn. Should I come up with something else or should I go with my original plan? I still want to do boarding passes for my invite so using that as a save the date is not an option. I'm open to any suggestions and opinions. What would you do??

Thanks in advance!

 

-Tiffany

Go for it - do what you wanna do. It's your wedding and you had this idea long before she sent hers in the mail. Would you not have a DW because someone else you knew was? No!!! So go for it I think :) I personally wouldn't even have thought twice :)

@calgarybride2015 Thank you! You're right! And knowing the type of person she is, she probably wouldn't even care.

I mean you didn't buy the same wedding dress as her - that I can see as causing a ruffle but a STD? Seems so silly so I still stand behind my decision to move forward. If you wanted to 'break the ice' send an email/text and go 'OMG love your invite you will die when you see my STD' :)

    As my best friend would say -- Girl, do you :) Go forth with your own plans and don't let what another person is doing hinder you from what you want to do. While you guys may be sharing a similar invitation, what you have that she doesn't is a fabulous destination wedding for your guests to attend. That alone will set you two apart. A wedding is an experience when you truly get the chance to design/do as you please -- so make it your own and don't look back!  ;)

    @tiffanyt  I agree with the others. Go for it!! Do whatever you want. You'll have your own wording and colours and design so they will still be different. Besides - you have the cat's meow. You're the one that really is doing a DW so you're the original! I agree with @calgarybride2015  You didn't buy the same dress; you don't have the same date. It's still completely your wedding! Have at it for sure!!!  Good luck!


    I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015
