    Hey ladies!!! This article was in my Martha Stewart's "Destination Weddings" magazine! They give you 38 ways to help personalize your DW, including tips on OOT bags...and one of my favorites was # 16 -- the "Good Morning! News" letter! They give you a template that you can fill out and either slip under your guests doors or leave in their OOT bags to share details for the day! The website gives you a PDF template! They also have many other templates for invites, STD's and much more!!

      Great article! Martha is always on the ball lol

      I love all her ideas, but I especially agree with #4 Give a warm welcom and #10, Host Daily Meet ups. We did the warm welcome waiting in lobby and giving out the OOT bags and our mugs with cookies in them. Everyone was happy to see us and loved the special hello.
      As for the the Host Daily Meet ups, we scheduled dinners/made reservations throughout the week at the resort's various restaurants. It allowed guests to enjoy their day time at their leisure but have dinner with everyone, including us. After dinner most usually hung around the main bar and mingled. It made them feel like they had control of their vacation but still part of wedding.

      Good luck!!!!

              Jessy, I LOVE that you were there in the lobby to wecome all of your guests!! I just thought I would have the OOT bags left on their beds, but I like the idea of handing them out as they arrive! I am definitely going to plan an event every day for every to get together! I look forward to spending those days with my guests!!!
