DIY Before We Leave Newsletter- Riviera Maya

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Here is my Newsletter that I have sent out about a month before we leave for the wedding. I thought I would share in case it could help out any other brides.

I can't seem to get the attachment to post. If you would like it PM me and I will send it to you. I used Publisher and it had a nice newsletter format that I used.

Love the newsletter idea. I was thinking of ordering a brochure from Vistaprint...but now looking at this you've inspired me that I can just do a newsletter type of thing. I will be putting them in the OOT bags and shipping them about a week before.

@FutureMrsYak - I'm curious to know what you're putting in your OOT bags and why you're shipping them out to guests early? Cheaper this way? Or less stuff to lug down?

This is what I sent instead of a pre-travel brochure. It has all information about the hotel, the airport, what to pack, the currency, what to wear, etc.

I'm nervous about lugging all the stuff down there, and dealing with customs. from what i hear it's not an easier shipping the stuff down first...could be held in mexico customs and not released. I figure if i ship them a week before the people (because not everyone lives around us) it will be a little pre travel bags.

We are putting, luggage tags, travel cups, puzzle books, yankee candles, disposable underwater cameras, then all the first aid stuff, aloe vera, sun tan lotion chapstick all that stuff.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
