    How many guests are you having? Right now I'm estimating having between 95 and 120 guests (I have 81 confirmed guests so far) - this would be crazy for me to attempt, right? Ugh - so many good projects!

        We have 40 guests attending -- but sent out 186 of these Boarding Pass invites. It was a lot of work but FH and I did it all ourselves and it's a great sense of accomplishment -- and the feedback from guests has been fabulous!!

          Tami - quick question. On OTC it says "accessories not included" on the tags. Did they come with the loops? (I've got no idea what else "accessories" could mean.)

          Thanks!

            Those are adorable! I love all the different logos you came up with, so creative!

              It DOES include the straps (I wondered about that too after ordering). It just does not include any decorations, etc.

              My one disappointment with these is that you cannot insert a personalized slip that will show through on both sides. Whie it looks like it's a piece of white cardboard that you can remove and replace with something else ... in actuality ... the white cardboard is intact ... and the plastic is designed so you can only do an insert on one side.

              Having known this, I would not have ordered these, so FYI for when you get them. So, what I have been doing is using large address labels imprinted with our logo and put on one side, with the personalized info slip put insode the plastic.

              Does that even make sense?

                Those are just too cute! Thanks for sharing. I do have a question. What is the reason behind giving the luggage tags? Is it just a nice gesture? Since I wouldn't have many to make, I may go ahead and make some up. Everyone needs luggage tags right. Sorry if I sound dumb again.

                  I used the different logos/monograms so that for couples and families they aren't all getting the exact same thing.

                  I am going to mail these out in late March to all confirmed guests along with our info packets.

                  As soon as I get them printed (buying the card stock tomorrow) I will post pics of the finished product. But here is the template I used in case anyone is interested.

                    Just a nice gesture to send out a few weeks prior to the wedding. I don't even really expect them to be used, except perhaps for the DW.

                    I had the monograms made by Aylee and Creative Montage. I can't remember who did these. they used to be free or $5 but I think now they charge a bit more but do a search for "sprouille" -- i think that's the right spelling off the top of my head -- and she can hook you up!!! Sarah ROCKS!!!
