Tips For Your Guests Insert With Invitations/wecome Letter/welcome Bag

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, just wondering if anyone can share with  me information they are either putting on their invitations for guests or their welcome letter if you are getting married in Mexico. I am making a little luggage tag insert in with my invites and I wanted to put some information on there like what to bring, money tips etc. Any suggestions. Also, I am going to start typing my welcome letter and any information on there I should put? I am getting  Married at Now Sapphire in Mexico. Also, any suggestions for Welcome bags?? I know I am putting a customized drink holder, hangover kit/first aid kit, maybe a cell phone waterproof case? Thanks!! I attached my tags what I've started already..not much...post-279723-0-11713800-1428502307_thumb.jpgpost-279723-0-03054400-1428502311_thumb.jpg

I am getting married in Mexico next week!

I posted photos of my invitation under my gallery. 

As far as the welcome letter, I also posted a photo of it on my planning journal (I think page 16). 

I hope this helps!

We aren't doing actual bags..

If you are talking about tote bags, beach bags, what have you and putting the OOT items in it, I think it is a sweet idea, but impractical/needless money expense. For example, I've noticed that usually the people who want to use a bag, bring their own. Also, most of the time the men won't use them, and furthermore, chances are, guests will never use them again. And as far as simple, party gift bags, again, guests will look at them for 5 secs and toss them- waste of money in my eyes.
So, I've decided to spend a little more on double wall insulated cups that I know all of our guests will use while they are there and "stuff" them with the OOT items and Welcome Letter. As far as gifts, well, see my response "#1." lol

hello!

 

On our invites we just directed people to our wedding website for more information.

 

On our website we had information on booking, the prices, RSVP, resort information/good to know tips, etc. As we went along we had an updates page for things that changed or were being firmed up and had the wedding day timeline. Also had the bridal party, pictures, etc.  The tips page had things like what types of clothes to bring, what extras to bring like bubba mug, enough sunscreen and such, meds, tipping money, not to drink their water, things we had learned about the resort (bring snorkeling gear, water shoes, etc.)  

 

In our pre-travel brochure we did the wedding day timeline, welcome drinks, what an all inclusive means, things to remember - reiterated what was on the website, then talked about tipping, having your passport, immigration card, where to get transfers, etc.  Also mentioned our wedpics account.

 

A couple days before we left we also emailed everyone and reiterated most things and firmed up times.

 

We did a welcome gift - we did a tumbler with a hangover kit inside (advil, tums, pepto, mentos, hand sani, nail file, emergen c, bandaids, etc.) 

 

I'd show you my wedding website but I deleted it -- I know I cut and paste my list in here somewhere if I can find the post. You can see my pre travel brochure in my planning thread on page 1

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
