Hi Carla, cute website!

We are also having a “destination” wedding to my fiance’s hometown in Italy. On our website we included a link for the non-english speakers ie, his family who also wanted to be a part of our website goodness. There we explained that our site was primarily for friends and family visiting Italy, but that there was pertinent information on there for them too, like details of our pre-wedding get togethers, how to rsvp and where our registries were located and what they had to do to purchase off them. I thought i was a nice way to involve them – hope this helps!

I actually wrote the FAQ post!

Love your website – no suggestions about that.  I went to Rio a few years ago and found the best guide book.  Its called “Rio for Partiers” It tells you everything you ever needed to know – amount of cab fare from different points, what the street foods are, what the hand signals at the beach mean.  Look it up and possibly add some of that info to the website!

@CCSR- LOVE your website…are you brazilian? I am…I was just in Rio for new years this year with the fiance! It was wonderful. I think that your website is very informative and helpful…you def hit all the key spots! We also went to Buzios which is a great suggestion. My only suggestion is to add a section with areas to go out at night for music/dancing. If you have any questions/need any help just let me know! I never lived in Rio…im from Brasilia but maybe I can help because I was just there pretty recently.

The book is awesome – you will love it.  I wouldn’t consider myself a partier, but its the best travel book I’ve ever purchased!

You might also want to have a list of restaurants to go to near where your guests are staying.

Hi everyone, thanks for bringing uip my Rio For Partiers book. I would just like to add that for US$27 you get a complete guide to Rio, that BUYS the reader the first 15 drinks! that´s right: just use the cupons in it to get free drinks (and other free stuff) at various hip bars and restaurants. That´s the plug.

Plus, I guess you could say is a good tip to any bride getting guests from abroad, is to get your international guests a local travel guide, buying it in bulk from the publisher, that can often and easily offer 50% if you buy over 20 copies. That way you can leave your foreign guests on “cruise control”, making your pre-wedding days a little lighter on yourself and family.

thats it!

cheers
