    So I've been browsing all the past forums about welcome letters and I know a lot of you have posted your ideas or actual welcome notes. I can't seem to open any of the links up because I don't have enough points. If any of you can post the wording for your welcome notes I would really appreciate it. I'm not so good with words and could use the help.

    Thanks!!

          Thanks for you help. Did you place your welcome letter with the OOT bag in the guests room? I'm not sure how this works on giving them the OOT bag when they arrive.

              I wondered the same thing when I first saw it. It stands for Out Of Town bag which is can vary in items as a welcome gift bag for your guests.

                Out of Town bag or welcome bag. Many brides put little goodies in them to welcome them to the destination and thank them for traveling.

                  That was my original plan, to put the letter in the OOT bag. Well, I vetoed the OOT bags at the last minute, so I just hand delivered the letters as my guests arrived. That was easy cuz I had less than 20.

                  Oh, and BTW, I actually sent an expanded version of the welcome letter, "the pre-trip letter" that included maps, directions & more detailed info. I sent that via email to most of my guests about 2 or 3 weeks before the wedding.

                  Out of Town Bag. It's supposed to be a little gift bag left as a thank you. Many people put supplies that people will need for the stay.
