Just wondering if anyone has created (or plan to) a guest list or directory to include in their OOT bags?  A picture and short description of each guest attending?

 

I think it would be a cute addition, but not sure how to go about creating one!

I love this idea too...but like you, I have no idea where to start!  I've seen these done with just hometown, relationship to bride and groom, and arrival and departure dates, but I think the picture idea is fun too!

I'm putting a welcome booklet for my guests that will have a "Meet the Guests" section....$1 photo album from Walmart, cardstock, extra print cartridges and Microsoft PowerPoint ;) Finding and cropping the pictures was the most time consuming part!

I am just completing mine right now - my formate is as follows:

 

Name: xxx Relationship: Natalie and Lauren met in grade six at school and they have been friends every since.  They even lived together for a few months in Toronto together. Natalie's fondest memory: Lauren and myself are both huge lovers of food, and when I think of happy times with Lauren it always surrounds us eating!  In high school we had an obsession with pickles and olives and then our pallets matured to hummus, tabouli, goat cheese and wine :)  When Whole Foods came to Oakville we would plan our nights around grocery shopping, watching a movie and eating our finger foods on the couch.  I think our best purchase from Whole Foods one night was four huge meatballs that we found in the deli section and cooked up for dinner. Did you know: Lauren in currently taking her MBA at the University of Toronto, working as Director of Shared Services at her fathers company and planning a wedding in December.  She is one busy girl!   My fiance will be doing his friends and his side of the family.  We will have pictures attached in a pretty book.   I hope this helps some ppl.   Natalie

I made one for my guests in Word called Jamaica Facebook.  I included their name, relationship to the bride & groom, where they traveled from, space for room #, as well as their picture.  I attached a template of what I used, I removed everyone's pictures, names, and places...but you'll get the idea.  So far mine is about 3 pages and I am planning on getting them printed out at Kinkos and handing them out in everyone's OOT bags at the resort.  Hope this can help someone! :)

Hi,
I think I am going to do a faux "star" or "people" magazine. I found a website where they will print low amounts of magazines for you (so I'm planning on doing one for each welcome bag per room so around 30) and in it I will include similar features from star and people. For example:

 

My Letter from the editor page will be my thank you note to the guests for coming...

 

the who's been where this week will be my list of itinerary

 

I will do a past and present brides section where I will post pics of some of my older guests at their weddings and some of my friends at their weddings

 

I will do a News section which will gossip about all of my friends businesses, engagements, births, etc.

 

I will do a Wedding scoop section which will "predict" all the details that the guests need to know about the wedding and the welcome cocktail dinner

 

I will do a "when they were young section" which will be all of the groomsmen and bridesmaids as kids with a game to pick who is who

 

And I will do a crossword puzzle with a fact about all the guests that people can only answer if they have talked to the other guests...winner will get a prize or something...

 

The magazine will only cost about a 100 to publish for 30 of them and its my only DIY project so I am excited! Thoughts???

    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
