Welcome note wording...
So I have limited space and just don't know what I should or should not leave out.

I know I want to say a brief welcome...maybe put a few restaurant names that they could go to and some areas of interest locally.

Do I need to put a timeline? Rehearsal, etc?

Anything else you suggest?

If they are not in the wedding you dont need a timeline. I think a simple small note thanking them for coming and mentioning local attractions sounds perfect.

I think if you just keep it simple and speak from the heart you will do fine! Maybe have a few BM read it over.

I am going to make a welcome note in Publisher that says what we are doing for the weekend. I will have one for guests staying 2 nights and one for guests joining us just on the wedding night…

We have a fun filled wedding weekend with pontoons boats, canoes, and outdoor activities planned the guests are invited to join in on. I am having a hard time wording my Friday night dinner though... I wanted to tell everyone they are welcome to eat at this one place where we will be but we are not catering the event.

Yeah those are nice but we are doing a one page note card, front will have a cartoon of FH and I and the back will have the info/ welcome. I have to make it short and simple.

I modified mine based on what Andrene gave me:

Dear Family and Friends, Welcome to Cambridge! We are thrilled that you are here to share in the joy of our wedding celebration. We are so fortunate to have each of you in our lives and feel honored that you have traveled great distances to be with us. You have all enriched our lives with laughter, love, and support. Thank you for being such a special part of our lives. We hope that you will enjoy your stay in the city that means so much to us. Please enjoy the goodies included in this bag. They are just a small token of our appreciation. We hope the next few days will be as memorable for you as they will be for us. Thanks again for celebrating with us. Love,
FMC and FH

@Kari b, I only have a MOH and she lives in Austin, I emailed it to her and she said looked good to her...but she thinks everything looks good.

@Mrs. S, No, I'm using a vendor off etsy. This is the front.

Hey FMC...I live in Austin too :) I didn't put a timeline b/c not everyone was invited to everything - like the RD - and I decided it would get confusing. And I decided if people needed restaurant suggestions, they could ask the front desk too, unless there is somewhere specific you want to direct them.

Here was ours. I thought it was important to give people a second point of contact since I knew we would be running around like crazy and not always available! No one took advantage of having her number, but she got a few easy calls :)
