    Great job Jen! Thanks for the info :)

      Very cool and unique. If I was a guest receiving that would make me really excited!

      Jen,
      what do you mean by pre-invitations? Are you still planning to send out invites as well? So are these STD's? You're guests are going to really appreciate the time and effort to give them all this information so early one, great job!

            Actually I already sent STD's back in May. On them I listed my website that had some very limited information but it also said that more info would be mailed out in September. So now this is the Travel/Hotel information. This is strictly for their travel plans. Since I figured our guests will probably be booking their travel plans before they receive their invitations, I wanted to get them the info in advance. So now, they know about all the events and can book their travel based on how many days they want to stay and which events they want to attend. I will be mailing the actual invites in December. By then, they should know if they are coming or not and have their flights/hotels booked already.

              wow you are so on top of it, that is so great. your guests are going to really love that, its very handy to be able to look up the info like that.

              You will have to let us know what they all say. I wish I would have been that on top of things...good job!!!

                  Thanks Ladies!!!!

                  OMG!!! A few of our guests have received the booklets and emailed me to say they LOVE them. So exciting!!!

                  More and more of our friends are telling us they are coming for the wedding and staying a week for vacation. So we're basically having all our family and friends on our honeymoon - how funny!!!
