@calgarybride2015 @LisaAnthonyPoppy @tygrrlily so I rather than giving them a bag with many items, I think I will go for a one single item as a "welcome and thank you for joining us" will plan to give it to them at cocktail reception welcome party with a bomb fire. I am planning to give them say a bubba tumbler inside a customized bag (not a tote just a nice inexpensive bag) and it will have our names and the date on it, then add a kit with s'mores for those who would like to have have some sweets.
One single Item that I though about: customized flip flops, T-shirt, bubba mug, ...thinking...thinking...
Favors: who knows I am so confused because I keep thinking how the heck I am going to bring all that down to Mexico. lol
so cute to use those lables...LOVE THEM and great for a favor
I agree! Seems anytime this happens in today's day and age - which is sad!
If I hadn't have already bought all the supplies and done the inserts I would have said 'go for it!!'
But truth be told, I am super excited to send out a pre-travel letter. I already have so much I want to say on it!!!!
And I think it will get everyone super pumped!!!
can you share a pic of the luggage tag? I think the reason why TA's are not that great anymore is because the business itself might be hard to deal with...many brides prefer to handle all on their own (like us) therefore if they think to do one of those sweet gestures for the bride they might know or feel that the bride does not prefer it that way or they might have had prior experiences...I think
No, my TA still sucks. Some of the other ladies on this forum have her too and it's the same situation. She starts off great - fantastic even - which hooks you in. But once you book, her response time completely changes. On top of that, she's been on vacation for almost 2 months now and was initially replying, but right now I haven't heard from her personally in over 2 weeks (despite many emails on my end). I have guests trying to book, and we've had to go to our TA's replacement, and then HER replacement b/c she's also on vacation. So we're on our 3rd transfer now, and I don't blame the guy for being slower because it's not his direct clients. I've sent her an unhappy email already, and I might have to do it again. She got us a good rate, so I am happy about that, but it's frustrating when we have people that WANT to book and give cc info, and have to jump through all of these obstacles just to get contact.
I am using Destination Weddings and the first TA was horrible so I read here about a good one and made a phone call and requested her...I am happy with her now. She is super busy but always replies to my requests and tries to go for recommendations to save us money . I think we can all help you to get things well done, please let us know anything were we can help . I like your ideas for the OOT bags too..I am just scared of the final cost per bag and also how i will bring that to Mexico. I think that a good way to avoid the financial pain of the cost is to buy things little by little and that is why i am researching now.
