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

    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
    • Minimalist wedding bands look so classy and timeless regardless of the venue.
    • It's hard to estimate. Some receptions don't need much decorating because it's already beautiful. Some receptions need lots of decorating. Some receptions also come with extra decorating equipment already.
