    We have 13 people (3 singles, 5 couples) sailing with us on the Carnival Liberty and 8 guests (4 couples) meeting us on St. Thomas for our wedding. We sail on March 31st, so I’ll be dropping off and sending these pre-trip packets mid-February. I’m going to hand-deliver as many of these as possible to save money on postage.

     

     

    For each packet, we’ll be sending a passport of information, luggage tag for each guest, a packing list, and a thank you for booking business card, all packaged in a black folder. We’re also going to include the wedding day timeline for island guests (since we won’t see them before the wedding day) and a list of the cruise events for the sailing guests.

    Luggage Tags

    I got shimmer business cards from Zazzle and was very disappointed in the quality, especially for the price. If I could go back, I would have sent these back for a refund and printed on my own on shimmer paper. I mounted the cards on teal cardstock leftover from my invitations and added address labels on the back.

     

    I got the luggage tags from a BDW bride.

    Packing List

    I found a packing checklist online that I loved, but it was ridiculously expensive, so I made my own and adjusted it to fit for a cruise, adding some travel/cruising tips on the back.

      Passport

      I used a bunch of passport templates from BDW brides to compile my info passport. I made one passport for the cruising guests and one for the island guests. The cruising passport had info about the ports of call and cruise tips. The island passport had info about St. Thomas and travel information instead.

       

      I printed the passports on 110# cardstock, used my Fiskars paper cutter to do the straight lines, Fiskars corner punch to round the corners, and Martha Stewart scoring board to get a nice fold. I tied the passports through two holes with twine from Ace Hardware.

                  I'm so sorry, I have absolutely no idea where I found it! I used Excel to make my own (pasting the final version into powerpoint), using lists I found on different cruise/travel advice websites.
