Honest opinions ladies

This is my idea for the welcome letter in our oot boxes.

Is this corny?

Are the places lame? Would you put a map or directions on the back of it or let the guests ask concierge?

As a guest, would you find this nice/helpful or just be like whatever?

HONEST.

Thanks.

    I like it. I think it's very nice and helpful... as far as directions or maps... maybe on the back? Do you think your guests would ask concierge? If not, then add it.

    i think it's beautiful! and i think the places are great. maybe a small map for each place is good? like a general overview? i think if they need directions they can get it from the concierge.

    I actually really really like it, Poppy!

    A general map of South Florida would do, don't stress too much over it. It's good as it is.

    I don't know if you will be able to fit the maps for each place in the back.
    I would normally ask the concierge for directions, but for those that couldn't think of it maybe I would write in the end "Ask the hotel concierge for directions and Enjoy!" Instead of going through the trouble of mapping each place. BTW the suggestions are not lame at all!

    Goodness you're good at this stuff!

    I think you should include directions somehow. I know for FI's side the fam is kinda lazy (mostly men) so they would like to have directions and above all that you're suggesting places to visit, which is cool.

    Also you included the beach and that there are bars/rest along the way so that's good for everyone.

    joanne - good point - I think I might make a small section of directions on the back or maybe leave maps with concierge for them to take?

    I think it's helpful, especially if people are not familiar with things to do in the area.

    From a hotel's point of view... please add your own directions! haha. Or, what I have seen, is some people leave personal directions at the desk for those that want them. Also, I think you should take out the last here in the first paragraph.

    I like it. Personally I would leave maps and directions with the concierge, which Im sure would do better, because it would an actual person to provide them landmarks to go by, etc. HTH

    I like it. I especially like how you included a place specific to you guys. I don't think a map is really necessary, lots of people have GPS or can get directoins on their phone or like you said ask the concierge.

    I am not sure how far the wedding is from the hotel, maybe include directions or a map to there, since you know everyone will be going there.

    I like it!  I think you did a fantastic job with it.  I do think you should include directions or a map. 

    Personally I would just put the brochure/maps in the OOT bags. why make them walk down to the concierge for the map?  .........but then again I do not like concierges so this may just be an issue with me.

    Love, love it....you ARE really good at this stuff.  I think a general map of the area would be a nice touch so people would know where each location is in relation to the hotel...but you really can't go wrong either way.

    Alyssa,

    I love it! I like the idea of leaving maps at the concierge.

    Also, maybe adding info about Sawgrass and restaurants along University Drive might be helpful.

    um, you are so freaking good at this stuff - it's incredible. I am going to attempt to make this and I was going to have very similar things!!

    My whole wedding is practically OOT so I'm including a general "timeline" of where we will be that weekend. Just a suggestion!

    it's amazing. you're really talented.

    p.s. I say no maps - everyone loves gps and if not, they'll figure it out, lol

    Alyssa,
    How much is the hotel charging you to deliver your welcome bags?

    I know it's been mentioned - but I personally like the idea of making your own maps/directions and leaving them with the concierge. Then guests can just walk up and say, "Hi, I'm with the X wedding and need direction."

    Alissa,

    I love the letter, very nice.  What program are you using to make all this in? I like the idea of maps, I am going to make my own though or get them through etsy.  Your hotel may have maps to provide you for the bags.
