When are you/did you send your Pre-Travel Packages?

 

We are getting married on December 13 and want to get the pre-travel packages sent before the holiday season sets in.  I was thinking about sending them out around the 1st of November so about 5-6 weeks before the wedding, is this too early?

I am getting married January 21 and I am sending mine out early November. Just don't want to get into Christmas season and forget.

I'm sending a brochure with resort info, wedding info, special events,etc. And a luggage tag per person!

Almost ready to place my vistaprint order.

@trbutler - Our wedding is a bit after yours - December 19 - and we sent them out already about 2 weeks ago.  Ours included an information passport, get pumped cd and luggage tags.  I wanted people to know details before coming, and i'm not sure if everyone reads the website or not.  We've had a really good response to them

 

You can see pics/read details in this thread:

Do most brides with destination weddings send our pre travel packages? I have all the info on our wedding website, and I will be putting a lot in OOT bags (including more resort info that applies after they arrive).

Nope not all do.   I have read of people using their website and/or sending an email.

 

The reason I am is because I had originally bought luggage tags to use as my favors and then decided not too.

Not to waste them, I am sending them out beforehand.

 

What you are doing is more than enough!

I am including luggage tags, travel info, webpics card, and Endless Weekend items from Bath & Body Works.

I also received some island maps and tourism flyers from the Aruba tourism board.

I plan on sending something out about 5-6 weeks before our date. I'm planning to make a brochure. Our resort is not open yet and so a lot of the typical resort info is not posted. I'm collecting some of this information so I can put it in a booklet along with what to pack and some other details related to our wedding weekend there. I'm going to include luggage tags and may put together some puzzle games for them to do while they're on the plan or whenever they feel like it! LOL

We sent out a newsletter with all the important information and luggage tags about a month before we left.
