Oh, I see. I'll be packing everything for us... (as usual) so It's done correctly ;). Nothing like a woman's touch!

I considered handing the bags out prior to our departure, but decided against it.  I wanted the guests to actually take the items with them, I was worried that it I game them before they wouldn't take the items.  


I am also having my parents and my brother take the items with them, they will be in Aruba a week before me so they are actually going to put the bags together prior to our arrival and deliver them to the hotel.  (They don't know all this yet) :)

We will be having family members check extra bags for us so we are able to get everything to Punta Cana. We will be handing out our welcome bags to each guest as they arrive.

    This is the first thread I have seen about pre travel mailers.  I though I was the only one over the top a little.  I am going to mail out a package with a welcome letter with some info about entry requirements, climate, what to pack, etc.  I have luggage tags (flip flops and airplanes), I bought little travel shampoo containers at the dollar store and printed out labels that say "Punta Cana or bust" and have our wedding date, a shoe bag, and a carry on kit.  In the carry on kit I am putting advil, gum, pens for filling out customs forms, antibacterial wipes for the nasty airplane trays, and hand sanitizer.  I will probably include some type of candy or snack as well.  I made my own shoe bags and bags for the carry on kit.  They are here:

    since our daughter and fiancĂ© will be driving to cali.  And we will be driving we are putting them in their car and giving them at the reception.  We are also giving a small gift & snack to those who are not sailing with us but have driven to be aboard for the event.  So no one's left out.  We have really been tossing this around since some one mentioned it on one of the boards.  So this is the idea we came up with.  That way no hurt feeling, no luggage worries and no postage.
