Invites or STDs?
Posted 24 January 2007 - 07:32 PM
We will be blocking rooms for the obvious family and close friends, but want to sort of keep the #s down... so we were thinking of just doing save the dates with our website info on it (with TA info) and letting them figure it out...? We don't want ppl NOT to come, but we don't want ppl just looking for a reason to holiday there either...

And yes, the DW pisses everybody off - O'well.

IMO, I would feel kinda wierd as a potential guest, if I only received a STD and then an inviation never showed up (especially if I was planning to attend). But, I guess if you verbally find out from people if they are planning to come or not, you shouldn't need to send
an invite to those who you know can't make it.
On a side note~
I had a friend who sent out a STD for her wedding and based on this I booked my flight (non-refundable), and then she changed her plans....so I was out the airfare....but, this was probably my fault for being a type A....always planning ahead...and it wasn't like the wedding was in a different country.

I don't think there are any rules on this though, so I say do what you want - it's a dw where there are no rules!

It worked well for us, so far we cut our original list of just over 100 down to 40 (saves money on invitations too)!!
