    Hi Girls,

    I was wondering if anyone was thinking of sending your guests a letter a couple of months prior to to the wedding informing them of any important info? If so, does anyone have a template or any ideas of info you think might be important prior to leaving?

    Thanks for your help.

      I sent a letter to my guests about a week before the wedding and it was great because they asked a lot fewer questions of me. It's posted on this board here somewhere...I'll look for it.

      Anyway, yes, I would recommend it. But don't send it too soon, or people will forget it. Send it when people are feeling that vacation anticipation excitement and start asking you a billion questions about things.

        I sent out a tri-fold brochure along with luggage tags. I've attached my brochure to give you ideas...if you want it in a word doc, pm with your email address and i'll email it to you.

            I did! Sorry, I don't have a saved version to share but this is what I included:

            Contact phone numbers for my and Brian's cell phone, our wedding coordinator, the reception site.

            Taxi prices (since there are set rates in Saint Thomas)

            List of rental car agencies

            Since we provided transportation for our guests from the hotel most of our guests were staying at to the ceremony adn receptio sites, I put info on where to meet the shuttle and times.

            Optional activities I had set up.

            Average temps for the week.

            I did it newsletter style.
            A "don't forget to pack this" list

            and

              I did too, about 2 weeks before the wedding. I was pretty brief but included what to pack, weather, time zone change info, how to navigate the PV airport, brief itinerary, and an invitation to the WD.

              I put together a more detailed info packet that they received in their OOT bags when they got there.
