I’ve seen all different kinds of destination wedding invitations over the years, but once in awhile, something so awesomely creative crosses my desk that I have to stop what I’m doing and write about it.
Today, I’m giving a shout-out and mad kudos to Caroline and Jeremy, of Washington, DC., on their travel-themed packet that included the invitation and travel information in a personalized passport, and the RSVP card in the form of a plane ticket. With a tear-off on the boarding pass that gives wedding guests a bar code to scan to get to the couple’s wedding website! Seriously clever on so many levels.
The pages of the passport include information about travel and accommodations, and the itinerary for their wedding weekend, to help guests plan their own vacations on either side of the wedding weekend.
Obviously, this invitation was professionally produced, and to have this level of quality (you’d seriously think it was a real passport if you just saw it sitting there), you’d have to send it to a printer. But for the DIY bride and groom who have enough time to mess with it, you could certainly make something similar on your own. (more…)
