This is so cute! Is this shareable?? ;)  The itinerary, welcome letter, travel tips are next on my to-do list and I plan to work on it this weekend.

I am sending out an email this weekend (we are leaving on Wednesday, wedding is Friday) with "reminders" (wedding attire, restaurant dress codes, don't forget to pack..., etc).

 

I have found that even though I have provided our wedding website SEVERAL times, people aren't so great at actually reading it and/or retaining the information. 

 

 

Once our guests are at the resort, they will receive a welcome letter:

(I'm still working on the letter... this is a draft printed on computer paper lol)

@@pddcmc That is sooooo cute! I love it. How are you planning on getting the letters to the guests when they arrive? Will the front desk be handing it out? That's the part I'm just figuring out. if I should mail things to someone's home or not. Or wait until they get there to spread the word. Love it!

We are putting the letters inside our welcome gifts - we are giving double wall insulated cups (full of other 'goodies') that guests can reuse at the bar, instead of those tiny, flimsy plastic cups they put your drink in.

I did a pre-travel brochure I sent out 2.5 months in advance. 

I also had it listed on our wedding webpage and 2 days before we flew out I sent a mass email just confirming all the dates and times of the important events.    The email was probably the largest factor in people attending our welcome drinks because it would have been the last read before leaving!

 

Good luck!

I also included it in our website, in a pre-travel letter, and in the itinerary in the welcome bag. We handed out our bags at the check-in event though, so they had a chance to see it before the event.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
