    We included a separate package of information about the destination with TONS of useful stuff (history, language, currency, restaurants, attractions, activities, etc) so our welcome letter was just a 1-pager and pretty simple. See below.



    Welcome to Aruba!

    We want to, first, thank you for coming to Aruba to be a part of our wedding.  You hold a special place in our hearts, and we could not be happier that you are here to share our wedding day with us! We hope that you will enjoy your stay on the island as much as the wedding festivities. To that end, we have included some items in this bag that we thought would add to your fun and comfort.

    We’d  also like to remind you that we have planned a welcome dinner for all of our guests. The details for the welcome dinner are:
    Date: July 14, 2011
    Time: 6:30 PM
    Place:  Red Parrot restaurant at the Divi Aruba All-Inclusive

    We are looking forward to spending time with you as we play and relax at the Divi Aruba All-Inclusive resort. But if you need to reach us with a question or an invitation to share cocktails, we will both have our Blackberry phones with us. Here is our contact information:

    Julia                                                                                  Matt
    Phone #                                                  Phone #
    julia....@gmail.com                                              matthew...@gmail.com
    BBM PIN: ...                                        BBM PIN: ...
    Now, before you don your bathing suit to join us on the beach, we recommend that you grab the sunscreen to bring along. Bon bini (“Welcome” in the Aruban language Papiamento)!

    Julia and Matt

                  I used many different welcome letters from this thread for inspiration. Our welcome letter is a combination of those plus my FI's input as well as my own.


                  The wait is finally over! We made it to sun, fun and relaxation…. Welcome to beautiful Jamaica!  We are both so happy and are especially honored that you have traveled so far

                  to be part of our wedding celebration. There are no words to describe how much it means to us that you would take the time and expense to be here with us during this exciting time in our lives.


                  Please join us for dinner at Platinum restaurant Thursday at seven thirty. We will join hands in marriage Friday at four. Following the ceremony, we invite everyone to join us off the resort for sunset pictures and dinner. We look forward to spending the next few days with you, and hope this time will be as memorable for you as it will be for us!

                  So put your feet up, enjoy and don’t forget your sunscreen!!


                  With love,

                  Casey and Brian


                  PS  Please enjoy the “goodies” inside this welcome bag.

                       They are just a small token of our appreciation!



                  Sorry it's a little blurry my phone does not take the best pics : (
