Thanks! Heres the list of what was in the book... 

The cover was a replica of our Passport Invitation with "Wedding Weekend" replacing "Passport"

Welcome Letter

Schedule of Events

Resort Map (including stars next to our room, ceremony/reception locations, & legend)

Restaurant Info (this was really just a space filler, not really needed)

Map of Riviera Maya

Spanish for Dummies

Photography Page (Both info on the photoshare site we created and our wedding day photographer) 

And my favorite... "whos who at Jaime & Talis' wedding".  Pictures & a sentence or 2 about each guest (or couple).  This was the hardest part, but definitely the most fun.

 

I made the whole thing in PowerPoint.  Not sure if that was the easiest program for the project, but it worked great for me.

 

The mistake I made was thinking I could do the printing & binding at home for cheap.  With all the photos and maps I used, I went through a full ink cartridge in 1 & 1/2 books!  We ended up taking it to FedEx Office (aka Kinkos).  One tip though, we brought our own double sided photo/brochure paper, so the printing was about 1/3 the cost.

Her pricing is dependant on multiple factors, so I'd hate to give you a price and be way off.  Then if you can get other girls getting married the same week as you, you can get a great discount.  In the end ours ended up about the same as Caribe and the style and overall package was much better!

 

She responds to emails super fast, so I'd recommend emailing her.  maria@mariaangela.com  She really is awesome to deal with.  Amazing personality and truly loves what she does!

Thanks!  This site really is amazing.  This Welcome Book alone is a complete collaboration of ideas I have gotten throughout this forum...with my own twist on each page.
I can't imagine planning this wedding without these girls!

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
