    OK ladies I need your opinions.

    We had "guest info" booklets made with pictures of each couple and a fun fact about each person in it so that everyone will know who each other is. We're going to hand these out when we get to Mexico along with our welcome letter. The girl who I outsourced this to gave us 2 options for the cover - both very different. We can't decide which one we want to use and we need to tell her in a few hours.

    The first one is funny - she is playing on the fact that you always meet fun people at weddings and then like 2 weeks later you'll be like "what was that person's name again?" Also she did a blurb on the inside saying "don't you hate when you forget someone's name mid-way through an introduction?" so it kinda ties in. Here it is:

    The second one is more "plain" but also a tad boring:

    Although boring, we're wondering if the first one might be a bit offensive maybe? So the second one is a safer choice...?

    Which one do you guys like better?

      I kinda like the idea of the joke-y one, but I think the words take up too much space. I like the look of the 2nd one better for that reason.

      Hmm Heather this is a toughie. I agree with you 100% that the second is a bit boring but the first could totally be taken the wrong way. Everyone's sense of humor is different. Personally, I get the play on words and its so true that you do meet people, have a blast and forget them... but I also feels like it sort of implies that the bonds made and fun times at your wedding will "soon be forgotten" and that doesn't sit well.

      Would she be willing to revise it to something in the middle? Like something like "New Friends.. so you don't forget!" or "To help you remember your New Friends" or even just more straight forward like "Who's who of our fabulous friends"

        well I love them both, but I would have to say go with the second one. As fun as the first one is I can see how some people may not understand it and it may be offensive.

          Heather - personally i like the first but i think it could be offensive to some people and the 2nd is just as cool and i don't think boring at all! also the 1st one while funny is a bit busy looking.

          long post but i say definitely #2!

            I don't think #2 is boring either so that would be my choice for the same reasons stated in that you never know how people will take things. I also like the idea of "who's who of our fabulous friends".

              I would have to go with number 2 for the same reason you and everyone else said. I feel like there is something else thats better/catchier than just 'Our Fabulous Friends' tho.. I just don't know what?!

                I also vote for number 2 only because, yes, I agree you forget people you meet at a wedding - but you don't necessarily forget people you met on a trip! I still keep in touch with a lot of people I met on my travels.

                The design is very cute though!

                  I also like #2 better. I don't think it's too boring, but if you do maybe change the wording of the 2nd one a little? or put it in Spanish?

                    Looks like I'm one of the only ones but I love #1. It is so funny...as long as you have a fun crowd I think it is great...and so true :)
