Oh, how Type A I can be.
Look, I’m Type A. I know I’m that way, my friends and family know I’m that way and I think from past posts you all know by now that I’m that way. So, naturally, I have to have the most organized and informed bridal party known to man…which means, of course, that I had to do a Wedding Party Newsletter!
There are lots of great templates and ideas out there for wedding party newsletters, but in the end, I started from scratch and made it up as I went along. It ended up being a nine page PDF document (I know it’s long!), but at least our wedding party now has all the pertinent information necessary at this stage in the game.
Page one is an introduction, which thanks them all for being part of our day and points them in the direction of our wedding website and my blog (and my reasons for blogging, most of which I whited out here), as well as tells them what they’ll find on the following pages.
The next three pages are all an introduction to our wedding party as it stands now (we are still in the process of deciding some ushers, readers, etc.)
Page 5 is the Wedding Party Contact List, which has all of their names, phone numbers, and email addresses. Clearly, that information has been whited out here (sorry!).
Page 6 starts some of the important info about the actual wedding weekend. On the next few pages, I discuss our venues, a preliminary wedding weekend timeline, and include a note about attire (when we’ll shop for it, where we’ll go, etc).
Lastly, I included a page on our hotel room blocks, so our peeps can all get their wedding weekend rooms lined up.
And there you have it, our Wedding Party Newsletter! What do you think? Admittedly, this took more time than I thought it would, but I am really pleased with the results, and as a bonus, I will be able to morph this into our wedding weekend document, which I think will be in a similar vein as Mrs. Daffodil’s. I am still working on setting up a template for you guys for this, so if you would like a copy, please leave a note in the comments and I will get one to you!
Did you do a Wedding Party Newsletter? If not, how are you keeping your wedding party informed?
