Here are the welcome booklets I made for our wedding.

They went in the OOT bags.

 

The Cancun information was mostly from cancuninfo.com.

The content for the English-Spanish translations I used from a post from here and I added a little.

I designed our logo.

I will have to look at home to see where I got the map.

I have many of you to thank for bits and pieces of content, but I apologize if I don't thank you personally...

I started it a long time ago and cannot remember where I got everything.

They were small booklets (8.5 X 11 divided by 4) spiral bound with clear covers and a thicker black paper backing.

I printed all the inside at home, collated them and took them to both Kinko's and OfficeMax for a quote.

We also signed our names at the bottom of each of the Bienvenidos/Thank-you-for-coming-to-Mexico pages.

 

OfficeMax was the better deal and could also bind them while I waited.

The charges were for 2 cuts (since there were 4 per page), plastic front and booklet backing, then two spirals per 8.5 x 11, since they would be cut in half.

Kinko's was going to charge for 4 spirals 8.5 X 11 set instead of 2. Hope that makes sense.

 

I am attaching it in pdf format to retain the fonts I used, since they are not standard fonts.

If you would like to use my original, please send me a PM with your email address.

 

Hope this helps someone out there!

Paula

They thought they were helpful and liked the content.
We had some people with conditions that needed to know of hospitals in the area, so I assured them we would get them the info.

I wished we had given the booklets out when we saw people instead of waiting until Friday night when we gave out the in OOT bags.
We gave out the OOT bags and then went directly to the welcome dinner and then people partied, so they didn't have much time to review the content.
That was just my opinion. We were a small enough group, everyone kept in touch and knew where to be.

Thank you so much for passing it along. What program did you use to create them, if you dont mind sharing? I am thinking I could accomplish it with good ol' word.

Those are great, Paula. We are working on something very similar for my daughter's wedding based on all the ideas we've gotten here on the forum. I like the idea of the Notes page.
