    image.jpgHello Ladies....

     

    It is 5 weeks until we leave and I am getting SO excited!

     

    I finished the pretravel packets last night, and wanted to share.

     

    The pre-travel brochure was done on vistaprint for free (all i paid was shipping)

    I copied from many different BDW brides. If you would like to see a close up of it, please PM, or comment and I will post it in its entirety.

     

    I also included Luggage tags. I did a business card on word, inserted a picture, and a text box..printed then laminated.

    I also included a map of the resort.

    The last thing I am going to include, that is not pictured, is the list of activites that the resort is doing.

     

    I will probably send these about in two weeks (I wont get the list of activties until one month prior) So, I will be sending these out three weeks prior to the wedding. I am trying to get the out sooner than that, but I REALLY want to include a list of activites so everyone can plan what they want to do while they are there.

      Looks great!  I'd love so see the detail of each item...like the pre-travel brochure...is there anyway you could post individual pictures?

            Nice!  It turned out great!  I love the picture of you two on the railway tracks :-)  So did you do this through VistaPrint?  I've set up an account through them, but have yet to do anything through them.

              I feel like I am stalking you! ;)  These are great!  I just ordered my pre-travel brochures from vistaprint this weekend and you just reminded me to include a resort map!  Thanks once again!!!

                Aw, Thank you!! (It was one of my favorites...but all of our engagement pictures were amazing! She did such good job!)

                 

                About the Brochures, Yes...I used vistaprint. Alot of brides on here use them and they are great!

                I have a secret, that I probably shouldn't admit too...but.. I saw all of the brides on here saying "I got this and this and this for free" and I never saw any type of promotion like that when I was looking. So I called customer service and said that I had it at one time, and now it was not listed under my specials anymore. She said not a problem and made it free. (Never hurts to "ask" right?) After I made that initial "purchase". I get emails DAILY about things I can order for free. I am thinking of doing "rack cards" for my program. (still haven't decided if it is necessary). They sent me an email today about magnets. I can get 25 free.  I have 28 guests coming. So I was thinking of putting two in each welcome bag. I am about to go look and try and design something I like now.

                 

                Note: If anyone lives in the memphis area...I HIGHLY recommend... (Her prices are amazing too.. three outfits..almost two hours $250) We got over 300 photos back. Most of them edited in someway!

                http://www.digitalco...emphis,_TN.html

                I asked her to come down to mexico and take our wedding photos, and we would pay for the her & her husband to go down to mexico in exchange for pictures (I thought it was a good trade for a single day of work) She said she would have taken me up on the offer, but her baby was due a week before we leave.  Too bad.

                  Good deal!  I've been receiving a tonn of emails from Vistaprint, but I haven't done anything about it.  So far it's "one free pen" and "one free note pad".....and we're also trying to nail down our monogram so I would like to to ensure everything follows the same idea instead of looking like I just threw a bunch of stuff together.

                   

                  As as side note what's a "rack card"?

                    It is a  glossy hard cardstock (it is the size of a peice of paper folded "hot dog" style)

                    --Hopefully that explained it-- If you dont, I would google it.

                     

                    At vistaprint you can put writing on the front and back at no extra charge.
