    Thanks everyone for the compliments! Actually it was very easy and I am no pro!...I seen a pic of someone else's travel brochure and used it as a guide to personalize it for my guests. The first thing I did was typed it up on a word Doc then just copied and paste it onto one of the templates the offered. I searched the templates by typing caribbean and beach until i found the right one. after I did it i just saved it on the website and vista print kept emailing me discounts. Then the other morning I woke up and livingsocial.com have emailed me the offer to pay $10 for a $50 coupon code. so all in all I only paid $10 for 50 brochures and 250 business cards (luggage tags) I added the bachelorette invites so I could get free shipping. If you want, I can help you format the brochure on vista print and then you can order it if you like it. PM me if your interested. Thanks again to everyone for the compliments :) Felicia

    Love the travel brochures, did you design them and then just upload them to vista print?! The whole vista print thing overwhelms me but then I see great work like yours and figure I need to do something with it!!!

      Its funny you say that... I spent like 2 hours trying to find a way to embellish it more! the only thing I really did was downloaded my monogram and centered it to the front of the business card. Then vista print gave me options for the back side and all I did was change the appointment date and time to name and address and phone number. Honestly, after 2 hours of trying to do more to the front I would have chosen anything for the back. I was so frustrated by then...mainly because I didn't want to pay to upload anymore of my designs. And their free designs didn't go well with my custom monogram. I got 250 luggage tags for only 3.99 (80% off)...I'm headed to amazon.com now to order some luggage tag holders for them. Let me know if I can be of any help in the future :)

      Everything looks great. Love your luggage tags. Puts mine to shame!

        Hi Felicia!

         

         

        I love your brochures that you did! I have been wanting to do those for my guests as well just I have no idea how and where to start.:(...any help from you would be so so so appreciated!!

         

        ALso, I'm confused on what I should do with other people who have not booked yet and still may later on, I sent out STD's to everyone and I will send the brochure to those who have booked, howeevr should I be sending anything to those people who haven't booked yet, I thought maybe I should also send them the brochure as it will be extra info and I will put the travel agents info also on it....

         

        what do you think?

         

        Thanks,

        Laura

            Well I don't plan on sending my pre travel brochures until about 2weeks before we leave for Jamaica. Most resorts require the trip to be paid in full 30 days before the arrival date so by the time you are 2 weeks out you will know exactly who will be attending and who will not be attending.  I am waiting until about 2 weeks before because I don't want to risk the chance of any of my guests misplacing the luggage tags or the brochure. Plus if they get the brochure then they can start using my tips to prepare for the trip. The info I included in my brochure was info from a couple of brochures I seen on BDW. I just changed the info to fit my guest and the resort where we will be staying etc. Then I sent the draft to my travel agent to make sure the info I included about the resort was accurate. Then I ordered the Brochure. It is a good idea to include the travel agents info. I didn't think to add that but they can get it from our wedding website which is included on the brochure. Let me know if this helps. Felicia
