Does anyone know?

Hello everyone! I have read awesome ideas on here about brides who brought pre-postaged postcards with them and gave them to their guest and had their guest mail them home from Jamaica to the bride & groom. I think this idea is sooo wonderful! I want to make postcards on Vista (AWESOME website by the way!) and put our monogram on them, address them to ourselves and include them in our guest OOT bags! I want it to say something like, "In lieu of a wedding guestbook.....we would like you to fill out this postcard with your favorite memory while staying here in Jamaica! Please give this pre-postaged postcard to the concierge desk prior to departure back home so we will get them when we return from our honeymoon and we can make our guestbook from your postcards mailed from Jamaica!" I hope this isn't a stupid question but - How does postage work in Jamaica? Is it any different than here? For those of you who have gone, do you think the concierge desk would be ok with this? If any of you can think of creative ways to word the postcard better, I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thanks!

I think the front desk would definitely mail your cards for you - surely they have a way to send outgoing mail from guests. I don't know how you would go about getting the stamps. Do you have a wedding coordinator? They might buy some for you (for a fee of course, but it would be worth the cuteness of getting all the postcards)

Instead of having the guests bring the cards to the front desk- maybe you can have them leave it in a box at the reception area. Then you can mail them to yourself. It sounds a little silly but they may be more inclined to fill it out there and leave it then. They may not remember to do it at a later time.

 

In addition to writing about their time in JA, they can include well wishes to the married couple.

Yes I will have a note on th epostcards that say bring postcard to the concierge desk. (I am just assuming they will send them out- I guess I can let them know ahead of time)...or should I just say FRONT DESK nad not CONCIERGE desk?? I will email my wedding coordinator re: Jamaica postage. If anyone knows, please fill us in! :-)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
