When my fiancee and I got engaged, the first decision we made was to have a Carnival Cruise wedding. While we didn’t want a Carnival red, white and blue themed wedding, we did decide that our Save the Date’s should be travel oriented because we are having a destination wedding–sort of. We live near a Carnival port and are getting married on the ship whie it’s in port, so our guests don’t have to travel. Anywho back to the Save the Dates…
We decided to do a luggage tag and were inspired by the Carnival Sail and Sign cards. So I used my trusty google search and found a Gold (previous guest) Sail and Sign card.
I used Powerpoint and my Paint program to manipulate the image and add my own text and ended up with this…
On the reverse side, we used the Carnival Whale tail and logo.
We then took the two sides, matted them to gold paper, had them laminated at our local office supply store and attached Nautical themed ribbon that we found at Michaels in their dollar section.
To add to the look, we created an vintage airmail envelope liner and had it printed at the office supply store as well. In fact, everything we did was professionally printed onto card stock and looked fabulous! In the end, these 50 save the dates, liners, envelopes and seals will have cost us a grand total of $100 and they will require just one stamp :-).
This is the final product…

I meant to write that I actually borrowed the idea from the envelope liners from the Martha Stewart Weddings site. I downloaded the PDF, did a screen capture in Adobe and copied it into Paint where I was able to make the colors a bit darker.

Those look great but it makes me wonder…. are you allowed to use their logo without their permission?

So cool! How did you set up a wedding on a ship while it’s in port? I didn’t know they did that!
