Meeting Guests In Lobby ??

Recommended Posts

So I originally wanted to meet our guests in the Lobby when they arrived, so we can greet them and give them their OOT bags. Last night we got the list of everyone's arrival and everyone is coming in at different times over the course of 4 days and at different times, is it rude not to meet them in the Lobby? If we do we arrive on Tues, Wed we have our meeting with WC and we have some guests coming in, we have 4 sets of groups coming in on Thurs from 10am to 11:30pm, 3 sets of groups coming in on Friday Sat is the wedding and Sunday is the TTD so we do will not get to enjoy the beach until Monday then. shots.gif

 

I will feel bad if people come in and don't know where to find us so the only idea I came up with if we did not meet them would be to give the OOT bags to the checkin and put a note in their OOT bag when they arrived and say we are at the pool etc come join us when you are settled. What are you thoughts?

Because you have people coming at so man different times, I really don't see a problem with getting the check in to hold the OOT bags up front until the guests arrive. then you can just put a little note in there like you said.

 

We will luck out because our guests will all be coming on the same flight either with us or the next day...so we will meet them in the lobby just because they will be altogether. But if I were you I wouldnt really want to hang out in the lobby all day and wait for groups to arrive...it is your vacation too after all!

We did not meet everyone per say... just happened that we looked at our watch and knew that we had the time coming back from the WC office. What we did was actually had small Jamaica bags..rum and goodies that came from a florist in Jamaica, and put hand written notes on them. Dependant on the day we wrote down with where we would be at the time of their possible arrival to the resort. This way they could meet up with us if they wanted along with our since most will not give that out incase they wanted to call and leave a message for us. We brought down the goodie bags each day to the desk and they passed them out when they checked in. I thought that it worked out great and some met us at the beach and some toured first and ran into us. This way you don't feel soooo scheduled, because you really are before the wedding with times for the WC and times for that..

I tried to do this, and I really wouldn't. We had guests coming in at all times and it really took away from my vacation. Instead we would have a set time and place to meet for dinner. That way they could get their feet under them at the resort and explore a little during the day, and we weren't help captive at one activity either. It worked out very nicely actually.

Did you hand out bags? If so did you give them to the front desk? If so what did they charge you.

I didn't really trust the front desk people, so I handed them out myself. I would take them to the dinner with me... otherwise if people ran into us at the pool I'd run to my room and grab them and bring them to them (my room was right by the pool).

Take the advice of everyone else here & DON'T DO IT!! It will ruin your vacation! Also, don't worry about everyone else's rooms, how they are doing, etc! Just have fun & do your thing - if others want to tag along than great, if not, that's great too! I completely regret having to split my time between everyone thinking I had to make sure everyone was having fun, and everything was alright. I really didn't take much time to just relax - boy do I wish I factored a honeymoon into the budget!!

I 100% agree with this. I spent so much time worrying about everyone else, and not having a good time. If I had it to do over again I would've said, hey I'm at the pool, come find me... and left it at that.

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
