My wedding is not until October 12, 2012 but I am a planner. I have been searching around for wording for many things as I like to do a lot of my projects. So I scoured the internet and want to share what I found so that other brides can save time. I will keep adding new items as my planning progresses. If anyone has any other wording that they would like to share, that would be appreciated!
Save the Date Inserts - Along with my save the date magnets, I included information about travel arrangements. I did not want it to be too lengthy.
Arrangements and accommodations should be made directly with TRAVEL AGENT NAME of TRAVEL COMPANY. In order to keep our group travel plans coordinated we encourage you to contact Nancy at your earliest convenience for discounted pricing and availability. A nominal deposit can be placed to hold your room. Prices include your room, all meals and airport transfers. We looking forward to sharing this special day with you!
Travel Information on our Website - For some reason, people have been confused when contacting my travel agent for pricing. A lot of people do not travel much and did not understand the prices were based on double occupancy and airfare was included (which would be very expensive as we are 10 months out!). So to help everyone I did some research and put the following on our wedding website.
Arrangements and accommodations should be made directly with TRAVEL AGENT NAME of TRAVEL COMPANY. In order to keep our group travel plans coordinated we encourage you to contact Nancy at your earliest convenience for discounted pricing and availability.
