I also opted to do a postcard instead of a welcome booklet. I got them from vistaprint and i only had to pay for shipping. Much easier.  postcard.jpg

 

We are all set for our legal ceremony on 10/13 and I can't wait!!

Thanks again!!   We finally got al the details, thank God!!!  We blocked off 20 rooms just in case there are some guests who were still up in there, and luckily b/c it is so far in advanced, as long as we cancel them if they aren't needed by March then we do not get charged for the rooms and deposit is refunded.  I just hope our TA is on the ball with payments, we used her already for going to the Bridal Dress Rehearsal at AS and had no issues with payments, so hopefully she stays on top of it. I'm just glad that this is the only stressful part, and hopefully wil be the only stressfull part. Good Luck in the rest of your planning!!

Something I learned, due to miscommunication: our guests were all charged their deposits on the same date July 15, no matter if they called June 1, or July 14. So this was really frustrating since people were wondering if their deposits had been accepted or not. Then the same thing happened for the balance payment. Some people called on September 1, and did not get charged til November 25! So this was frustrating since people though
t they would be charged the day to called to say "I am paying off my balance, here is my Visa number..." This caused huge confusion since people were waiting for their itineries, and statements of payment. Again, the TA did not inform us, and if I had my time back I would ask exactly how everything would be processed.

 

It's the TA's job to ensure you understand your contract, the timelines and to ensure your guests are treated well. Make sure you take notes, and understand it before you sign!

Melissa, I heard the news! That sucks :( Hopefully things will be settled soon. And if you can't do one of your private events....don't worry about it! People are there to spend time with you and Chris, it doesn't matter if you on a sailboat, ziplining, or just sitting by the pool!

 

What color/style of shoes are you looking for? I will keep my eyes peeled msnwink.gif

 

And let me know when your LED and batteries come in and we'll get together for dinner!

Hello Melissa, my wedding triplet!  Shani and I married the men of our dreams at AS the same day that you married the man of your dreams at AB.  You looked stunning and your video is beautiful.  The water was much bluer at your resort than at ours!  I used Cancun Wedding Video because they were a preferred vendor at our resort.  Playa Weddings did a great job at yours.  Were they a preferred vendor?

No I had to buy 8 1/2 x 11 paper. the template has the lines on it so you can cut it. i bought a paper cutter and grommet setter. it is time consuming - i did 15 in about 2-3 hours.

I'm originally from N.O. but hadn't been home in a couple years so i was happy to have my shower and bachelorette party there. it was good to catch up with some old friends and family.

Were they easy?

 

PS>>...  was that your first time in New Orleans?  Chris and I fell in love with that City when we were there for work in March of this year, can't wait to go back!

:)

What do the postcards say? I love them and that seems so much simpler than a whole welcome booklet

 

 

It's just a simple note, welcoming and thanking them for coming that highlights the time and location of our events as well as reminds the guests that there will be free activities going on at the hotel that they could participate in in between our events and any excursions. i could've put our picture on it (but that would've been extra). i got 50 for free (just paid shipping)
