    Since our wedding is a little more than a year away, we decided to send out newsletters to our guests to keep them excited about making the trip to Mexico. Most of them will be making payments along the way and we thought it was a cool idea to show them where their moolah is going (sort of like the dangling carrot in front of the horse). Here it is, let me know what you think!!!

      Very nice!

      I just have to ask though... I read the part where you cleared up "a discrepancy" about the boarding pass save the dates, that they weren't really travel tickets - did you actually have people thinking that they were? I burst out laughing when I read this, thinking about folks calling to thank you for being so generous as to send them airline tickets! Those must have been some fantastic boarding pass STDs!!!

        Haha. I was thinking the same thing when I was reading it. That's pretty hilarious.
        I think you did a great job with the newsletter, it's very informative. Great job!

          Great newsletter do you have a template? I would love to do something like that for my guests :) I also found it hilarious that you had to include the bit about the boarding passes lol! I was just thinking to myself oh goodness I bet I'll have some of those on my list that need clarification! I did boarding pass STD's also lol!

            Can you believe it? I actually DID have some guests thinking that it was a ticket AND it gets better...The STDs are three pages. The first page has the general wedding info. The second page gives the info on Travel Arrangements (TA's contact, passport info,...). The third page is the Contact Us info with the wedding website, email addresses, and mailing address. One of our college-educated family members said to us that they were "missing a page" since we only sent three and there are four family members in their household. Now how ridiculous is THAT?!?!

            I have the word document that I can email anyone who wants to use it as a template and just change the text. I think that if you open it and save it to your computer, you can adjust it - unless it is showing up as "read only." If not, just PM me your email address and I will send it to you.

                    I have to agree with Angela, very nice newsletters but it is very funny that people thought they were actual plane tickets. Please share them with us so we can see them, they must have been impressive!

                      People are strange...we had Passport invites with Boarding Pass RSVP's and folks thought that these were individual passes made just for them!!! Mind you...my invites were fuchsia/silver and blue!!! LOL

                      In any event...I got desperate...found a template and actually put together a newsletter today through the grace of God!! Now I'm scrambling to get the envelopes addressed and sent out...I can't believe I waited this long. It's basic...but nice....
