Pre-Travel Information to Guests

Recommended Posts

I'm putting some tips with our invites (boarding pass style) so it'll be the third page of the invite. Then on our luggage tag rsvp I'm requesting everyone's email, so any other info from that point on will be communicated via email. The brochures are nice but I'm trying to keep costs down.

I had originally sent out a brochure with some resort information with our invites. 

 

With about a month to go, I just sent an initial email this week (since all of our guests are confirmed now). In the email I put the week's timelines and what they can expect (tulum excursion, halloween, wedding day info) and I reminded them about travel insurance and taking dukoral. I included dress code for wedding and other basic information.

 

Since I'm the travel agent myself, I will be sending out another email with tickets/travel documents and other necessary travel information approximately two weeks before we leave.

How much detail did you give them about excursions / activities?

How much detail did you give them about excursions / activities?

I just listed a few of the possible options they have, the most popular ones, I didn't get into details. Most of my family/friend have been to Riviera Maya and they can all figure out what they want to do the first day they are there. Everyone has an idea of the type of vacation they want so they can figure it out.

I am trying to organize a Tulum beach trip for anyone of our guests who is interested.

This info is so great! We have lots of info on our wedsite, but a lot of our guests don't seem to be checking/reading it, so far. This will really help us highlight the important information. Thanks!

We will be getting email addresses for RSVP's so I figure we will email out a brochure ahead of time but also include a printed one in their welcome bags.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
