Wedding Travel Guides

Weekly Wedding Tip
brought to you by bridalguide.com
"Welcome out-of-town guests with a customized travel guide full of your recommendations for restaurants, shops, museums, nightlife, and places to pass the time between wedding events. A laser-printed listing, mailed ahead or left in their hotel room, is perfect."

Here's a great idea if don't want to create a travel guide yourself - Beau-coup now offers blackbook city guides that are exclusive to their site. These guides are pocket sized and include detailed maps and carefully researched information on the best restaurants, cafes and nightlife. These guide books are perfect for welcome baskets and at Beau-coup, you can personalize your guidebook with your names and wedding date on the cover. Currently, there are 6 titles to select from: New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Chicago, Miami and the their popular Jet Set Guide which covers New York, Paris and Los Angeles. You can choose your font and the placement of your text to make your own special edition.

Of course, your options are unlimited if you choose to create and print your own travel guide for your wedding guests. I love handmade guides that are tied together with ribbon like the samples shown above. Adding a scalloped edge to the guide pages will add an elegant finishing touch. Will you be providing your wedding guests with a customized travel guide? I'd love to hear your ideas.
