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

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
