Well with having left-overs come extra things to think of stupid.gif I know.  But it only took a few minutes if that.  I used the same template for our luggage tags, found some pictures, printed and cut  these babies.  Initially, I was going to use the same luggage tags but well, why!  LOL

 

We will use these to travel with on all of our luggage:

Upon our return we will use a combination of these.  Hubby likes the teacups (funny cause the only time I drink tea is when I'm sick and he only drinks cold tea.)  I on the other hand love the Wright ones....  Mixed feelings on the Mr & Mrs. ones so they are close to being scrapped...

Updates, updates, updates

 

Well this time next week I will be printing off our boarding passes, having a quick dentist appointment, dropping our baby Cesar (4 month old boxer puppy) at the Pet Hotels & Villas, picking up my Bridal Gown at 1p and then getting my pedi, mani and waxing done.  As my time on BDW will drastically decrease until my return and final planning thread, I wanted to provide you with a few more updates.  thewave.gifthewave.gifthewave.gifthewave.gif

 

In preparation for our website, FI and I had our engagement shoot with one of my Sorors!  We try where we can, to definitely keep things within the Sorority where we can, so it was a natural choice to select Nakeea.  Although we didnâ€t pledge together, we did attend the University of Pittsburgh and both reside in Pa.  Since, FI doesnâ€t like taking pictures, I needed him to feel comfortable and both Nakeea and I are jokesters so she was the perfect pick for us.  Here is her website along with a few pictures http://nakeeajarvis.com/#

Updates Continued

 

Thank you for booking brochure:

Once we received notification from our TA-Liz, we would immediately send out “Thank you for booking brochures.† This idea was from a MP2012 bride and we updated to suit our needs.  I also ordered magnets from Vistaprint, as a way for everyone to remember the trip.

Our RSVP date and booking for inital deposits was in October sometime and then became November 15th.  So I knew that we woudln't have much activity over the holiday. However; many proved me wrong.   Not only did we have the majority of people pay their deposit but most paid their trip in full. 

 

Reminder Postcards

All final payments had to be made by Feb 3, 2012.  Since the hoildays had just past, I didn't want people to scramble to make their payments. These DIY postcards (before cutting) were sent the 1st week of Jan.  It reminded all guest to not only get their passports but of the final payment date. I made 5-6 different onces as I didn't want members in our own family to receive the same card (anal I know) LOL  Here is the front

:) We land around 11:30 on the 24th. I cannot wait!!! Two weeks and counting. I wish you an amazing and beautiful day - we all know it will be. Congrats and hope to maybe bump into you before you leave.

Hey Soon2bMrsT,

 

Thanks so much, I'm just paying it forward as this site has been an amazing help to me.

We are going to shut it down in a good way ;-)  How exciting and congrats, your day is fast approaching as well.  We leave MP on Wednesday the 25th, so we will be plan to be at Wet N' Wild on the 24th as this will probably be our only excursion day.  What time do you arrive?

Pre-Travel Packets:

Our guests are great!  WHENEVER, and I do mean WHENEVER they would do something (buy their flight, go shopping, get their passport), they would always contact FI or I and sometimes both.  I remember getting a text at 4:30 in the morning saying “Coco, we brought our ticket†now who could be mad at that? Anyway, these were mailed out the 2nd week of March to ensure that everyone received them 1 month prior to their departure date (most guests are flying on the 19th of April)

Brochures: printed at work on photo paper to give it the shine

Sleeves paper: paper fromPaperandmore.com

Butterflies & Bling: Martha Stewart punch and bling from Michaels

Luggage Tags (previously posted) paper from: paperandmore.com. pictures compliments of the internet (I did some for traveling to the hotel and traveling back home)  The wording for traveling back home was "We the People and our bags belong to" and it listed the states where our guest are traveling to so that they could circle their State.

Kids Brochures and crayons: Mailed in the packets of those that had children attending the wedding.  Template too large to add.  But is compliments of another BDW I also enclosed the 2012 Resort Credit PDF file so that our guest could know how they can use these.
