With a vintage wedding theme, we've been trying to fit in as many different vintage and retro elements as possible. One of the ways we are doing this is creating the illusion of our guests traveling during the 50s and 60s. To start this off, as guests have RSVPed yes to our wedding we have sent them an RSVP welcome packet.
Our Maid of Honor, made us a great letterhead with matching envelopes that reflected the letterhead of Hawaiian resorts in the 40s-60s based on information and graphics I provided to her. I had both of them printed at VistaPrint. I then drafted a letter based on some vintage Hawaiian travel memorabilia I got my hands on last year and catered each letter to the guests we were sending it to.
|Love this letterhead so much!|
Together our Maid of Honor and I also made a great travel brochure to put in with the letter. I gathered all of the information, wrote up the copy and she did the layout, graphics and incorporated a few of our engagement photos in it. The brochure includes a welcome, information on Maui, Maui Tips, information on what to wear to the wedding, what to pack, and checklists on what guests needed to do to travel and what they needed to not forget. We have tried really hard to make guests travel to Maui as easy as possible.
While on Maui I picked up all kinds of brochures and information on Maui activities to include in these packets. I made sure to get ones for the luau and other activities we would be doing while on Maui and had invited our guests to go with us. When putting together the packets I catered the brochures from Maui based on who we were sending the packets to.

What did our guests think of the packets? They loved them! We got lots of positive feedback on them. They liked the additional information, the letters I typed up in a font to look like it was done on a typewriter and the Maui brochures. Lots of guests added activities to their to do list based on those brochures. YAY! Success!
