It worked well for us, so far we cut our original list of just over 100 down to 40 (saves money on invitations too)!!
We'll be doing a website too - so that's kind of what I had in mind... was to send out STD's (gee, that just sounds bad!) to all friends that would direct them to our website with travel and resort info, formal invites to family members (with a block of rooms for family only) and just see what happened... JK!
We don't want people there that are just coming for a frolick on the beach (warm getaways are a novelty up here, and people use ANY excuse to get south!) and the way you did it, Starchild looks like the best option.
We just don't want to end up with 100 ppl there... kind of defeats the purpose of getting outta here!

Thanks for the input, much appreciated!

Glad to help!

 

By the way, there were about 10-12 people we considered "courtesy" invites who seemed more excited about the location than the wedding. I know what you mean about not wanting to have these people at your wedding when they really just want a vacation. Lucky for us, they missed the STD rsvp deadline (I guess they thought they could tell us anytime) so we told them unfortunately, our WC has already made arrangements for the people who replied by the deadline.

 

We set the website rsvp WAY earlier than we really needed to know to weed out these type of people and it worked, and we were able to extend that deadline for people we wanted to be there. Good luck!!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
