    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!!!

        That's a great way to tell them! Then it's their own darn fault!
        That's perfect, Thanks a mill!!!
