I have seen luggage tags all over this forum so thanks for all the inspiration, ladies! I made my luggage tags by creating a design and uploading it to a business card on Vistaprint. 

 

I bought cheap ID Badge Holders from Speacialst ID for only .28 cents/badge http://www.specialistid.com/Standard_ID_Badge_Holder_Vertical_Vinyl_p/1820-1050.htm

 

I used ribbon that I bought at Micahel's on sale for 1.00 to use as the "handle" to attach to your bag.

 

Here is my design:

Back:

Front:

Once my "business cards" arrived, I put the luggage tags together and voila!:

I plan to send these out to my guests a month or so before the wedding to get them excited and of course, for them to use on their luggage! I also plan to send a CD of fun music to get them pumped up and a letter or brochure with important travel info. 

 

Happy Planning, ladies! I'd love to see your projects. :)

Let me know if you have any questions!

Do you have an editable template for your design? Were you able to get the free business cards or since you had your own design you had to purchase the cards?

Thank you girls. Since I had my own design they were not free BUT they were literally almost free... I bought a Groupon for vistaprint (I can't remember the exact numbers but it was really cheap and worth a lot... Something like $12 for $24 worth) then I was able to combine that with an online coupon code for 50% off. In the end I ordered 2 sets of business cards (one set was my luggage tags and the other was my key/tip money holder) and a set of postcards and my total was 2.24 plus shipping. It was like crazy how cheap it came out to. As far as a template- unfortunately I do not have one. I dabble in graphic design but have not yet splurged on a program like photoshop so the good news is you could do your own just like I did! I use an online editor called pic monkey. It's picmonkey.com. It's pretty simple and great for beginners. :)

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda   
    • Hi! I'm from the US (but I've been to the UK 6x- my finance says i'm not allowed to move there! lol) Many resort lines don't offer something like the dress rehearsal, which I think is crazy! It's such a smart idea!  Having been to Mexico so much, I find it so much more comfortable- Yes there are dangers but I don't find it any worse than Philly or NY. It is a country that gets SO MUCH money from the service industry- it literally benefits no one to mess with tourists. Your tip money at the bar is feeding someones family. Not that the DR is any different in that it relies on tourist $, but the vibe is just totally different.  In the DR, they were really very serious about us not leaving the resorts (we did- I don't believe in staying on resorts lol). Once off, we realized why. Now, full disclosure, we went right after the 2010 earthquake, so this was a) some time ago and b) right after a natural disaster. Once we left we just felt immediately uncomfortable. (We even saw a man approaching a goat with  a large gun and the Taxi driver seemed nervous and sped away- poor goat!) I find in Mexico everyone is SO respectful- in the DR I had guys make lewd comments (both from those off the resort, and more disturbingly from workers at the resort), grabbing at me, just generally super disrespectful and not at all comforting. My dad had to kick the room service guy out of our room bc he refused to leave when we asked!  This could have been completely isolated to the staff at our specific resort, but it definitely happened off resort as well. A la Anthony Bourdain, I have always considered myself a traveller, not a tourist, so I have zero interest in staying on a resort the entire time (really I'm not in love with resorts period lol), so for me, if I can't go off resort safely, what business do I have being there at all? Also they  made be throw out my coffee before I got on the plane- the coffee I got at the food court at the gate. I'm holding that grudge LOL. A long story short- it's not on my list of returns. I can honestly say that I'm not sure I would accept an invitation to a wedding in the DR- I think I'd rather save that money and go to Mexico! (or the UK, or Iceland, or just Europe in general lol)  I don't regret going, but I'd sooner go to Mexico if I'm looking for a beach!  That's just me- millions of people go there and have a great time! I guess it really comes down to what type of traveller you are (are you okay with being on a resort and just leaving for excursions)!
    • Hello, thank you so much for this it’s all very helpful.. are you from the UK OR US? ive never been and I probably won’t visit the destination until I get married! Oh my gosh I have looked at your resort it is beautiful!! my family have been to the Dominican.. can I ask why you didn’t find it as safe?   Thanks again
