5 Steps for Creating Gorgeous Passport Wedding Invitations

Ready to create stunning DIY wedding invites? While you could opt for paper wedding invitations and spend time (and money) on cardstock, vellum jackets, monograms, laser-cut designs, and other add-ons, why not consider digital invitations? You’ll save time (no trips to the store!), money (no postage!), and trees (no paper!) without sacrificing on style or quality.

Whether you’re looking for a sophisticated destination wedding invitation, or something fresh and relaxed for a beach wedding, follow the five steps below to make the process a breeze. Remember: You don’t need to take the passport theme too literally. Have fun and allow yourself to get creative.

1. Find a Design You Love

Naturally, you want a custom look for your wedding invitations, but with the help of a gorgeous template, you’re halfway there. Greenvelope offers a stunning collection of wedding invitations that covers every theme, style, and taste — whether you want rose gold accents, boho style, or urban elegance.

Browse through our collection of travel and passport invitations and make a shortlist of the designs you like best. Then, review them with your partner and decide which one gets your final vote. Once you’ve decided on your favorite, you can start customizing.

2. Customize Your Invitations

There’s nothing better than wedding invites that feel uniquely yours. All of our wedding invitation templates can be personalized so you get a high-quality, custom design that’s budget-friendly.

Play around with the template and move different elements around to change the look and feel. Experiment with different font combinations and colors. For some designs, you can also add photos.

3. Add Your Wedding Day Information

After you’ve customized the design, fill in the details about your big day. Carefully replace any placeholder text with your own.

Every invite has space for all the essentials, including your names, the wedding date, time, venue, and when to RSVP by. Many invites have additional space where you can add other details — like the wedding dress code, a line about entertainment you have planned, or your favorite quote. For anything else, there’s always the details panel.

4. Personalize Your Details Panel

One of the main benefits of designing your custom wedding invitation cards with Greenvelope is our details panel. This handy feature can be used to share even more information about your big day without cluttering up your beautiful invite.

For instance, you can share info about the local area, recommended hotels, nearby parking lots, dress code, and any other pertinent details about your preferred wedding guest etiquette. This is also the perfect place to share a link to your wedding registry or honeymoon fund.

5. Schedule or Send

With everything ready to go, the sending process is swift and simple. Simply upload your wedding guests’ email addresses and/or phone numbers into Greenvelope, and send right away or schedule for a date and time in the future.

You can send email or text message invitations (or both). Whichever method you choose, your recipients will open up a beautiful animated invitation. From there they can RSVP in a few clicks — no RSVP card required!

7 Wording Ideas for Your Passport Wedding Invitations 

If you’re sending a passport, boarding pass, or travel-themed invite, it’s the ideal moment to be playful with your wedding invitation wording.

Here are some fun travel-themed phrases you could feature within your passport wedding invitations:

  1. Flights to the [Surname] wedding, now boarding. Please join us!
  2. All aboard! We welcome you to join us in [Destination] for the [Surname] wedding on [Date].
  3. Get your luggage tag ready, we’re going to [Destination]!
  4. We can’t tour the world for our wedding day, but we invite you to join us for a travel-themed celebration of our love.
  5. Soak up the sun at our beautiful wedding in [Destination].
  6. Pack your bags, we’re off to [Destination]!
  7. We couldn’t visit our favorite place without you by our side! Join us in [Destination] as we say “I do.”

If you like more than one of these phrases, consider using some for your signage, wall hangings, or decor pieces — or save one to use inside your wedding thank you cards.
