I finally have this all put together and ready to mail on Monday (which will be about a month before the wedding).  I had finished the luggage tags ages ago but waited on the mailers because I kept redesigning it and adding more info. 

 

For the luggage tags I used clear rigid tags - I wanted something a little more substantial than a typical badge holder yet didn't want the permanence of self laminating.  I ordered the tags from the link below and then the straps from Amazon.  I printed a few different designs using Microsoft Publisher - one side has a tropical beach picture (just random photos on-line) with wording I borrowed from another BDW bride and the other has one of our logos with the name and address lines.  They are standard business card size so I figure people can continue to use them however they please.

I opted not to do a brochure for the mailer.  I am doing a tri-fold welcome brochure so I wanted this to be different.  Since I had done boarding pass STDs I decided to use that template and make it look like a real travel packet.  I have 4 pages of info - the standard stuff like attire, weather, travel requirements, packing list, etc.  I also included a resort map (we'll be at Atlantis and its huge!).  I put the fliers in a pocket (like the boarding pass ones), put the luggage tags in a large envelope and tied it together with raffia.  Then I put that whole package in padded envelopes for mailing. Hopefully the post office won't mangle them :)

All of your DIY projects have turned out so well!

 

Any extra luggage tags I can buy from you? Love these but I only need 20, not 100!

I know the feeling - I ended up giving everyone 2 each since I had them.  I think I have about 30 extra.  Let me check when I get home and I'll PM you later.

Looks great, I might have to steal your idea for the boarding pass instead of a brochure.  I started designing a brochure and thought it was so boring :(  Boarding pass is a great idea though bc I did them for our STD's too! 

 

Thanks for sharing!!

These are great.  I thought about doing the luggage tags, and then just dismissed the idea - but now after seeing yours... hmmm - they are beautiful

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
