Now that it is officially May, I am wrapping up my pre-travel mailers and getting them ready to send out tomorrow. (My wedding is June 28, but there is one thing I want my guests to really enjoy for a few weeks before the wedding!)

 

Included in my mailer:

-a double sided "notecard" that I designed myself and printed through Vistaprint for free with info about traveling, etc

-a magnet to hold the notecard to the fridge (I also designed this myself and printed through Vistaprint for free)

-a CD with a compilation of "Get Ready!" songs chosen by the wedding party in a DIY "case" that I made from left over kraft paper cards

-2 DIY Luggage tags/person (here is the link to my luggage tags: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/t/84974/my-diy-luggage-tags-with-pics

 

Thankfully, there are only 30 of us total and most of the guests are couples, so I really only had to make about 15 mailers. This helped- otherwise price and time devoted to this project could start to add up. However, I printed some of the things on Vistaprint for free, I had 10 blank CD's (so I only had to buy a few), and I used left over kraft paper cards/envelopes for the CD case and the actual mailer envelope. The supplies for the luggage tags weren't really that expensive, either!

 

Anyway.. on with the pics!

What do ya'll think? I think the guests will really like the CD. It's an idea I got from this forum and as soon as I saw it, I just knew I wanted to do it. 

 

Happy Planing, ladies! Any questions, just let me know!

Hi Megan,

I have been coming back to your posts constantly for tips for a while now..you did such an amazing job!

I'm wondering how you did  your pre-travel tips for free on vistaprint?  I go to the site, then to note cards, and all I see are decorative cards.  Do  you even remember what you did?  I think this idea is amazing, and I'd love to do it myself.

Thanks in advance!

Hi Megan!

I absolutely love your cd cases!! I might have to steal that idea! And if you don't mind me asking, how were you able to score the magnets for free on Vistaprint?
