Ok I need some advice! I already know everyone that is coming because they have all booked! So my question is Should I still send out Invites? I wanted to send them out because I feel like I need to but then again if I do send them out what do I put in them. I got a mock set from PocketFolders - Vertico and I really wanted to do them! I just have no clue what to put in them. I was thinking maybe some reminders but then again that is what we have our website for and I feel like I would be repeating myself. Any ideashuh.gifhuh.gif?

You could include a page of regional information--- maybe taxi information and company numbers for when they leave the airport, a little info on the events at the hotel that weekend, local restaurants (if not AI resort), etc...

 

Or, you could include the invite and then make one of the sheets a personal handwritten letter telling them how much you're looking forward to spending time with them, etc...

 

Since you're doing the invites on your own, you could customize each folder's information to make it appropriate for the individual (depending on how much time you have to do something like that)...

You can send them, but is there anyone that you want to invite that has not already booked their reservations? Invitations are expensive. So you really need to think about who should get one and who really doesn't need one. I am sure your parents woulndn't mind getting one.

I have everything on our website too, but I'm still sending traditional invitations with the standard wording and then doing inserts of Directions from the airport, Welcome reception info, At home reception info, and accomodations and rsvp (which you obviously won't need). I agree it is expensive to send them out. But, I think it is a nice idea to send them...it makes it feel more formal. I also wanted to be able to keep a copy of our invitation for sentimental reasons.

 

......I don't think anyone has booked one of our rooms yet!...aghhh

I sent formal invites but included a little card with our website on it so I wouldn't also have to print all those inserts (especially cause it's easy to make updates to the website all the time, not as easy to update a one-time mailing).

 

Why not just send formal invites but nothing else? Then you have them for sentimental reasons but you don't kill yourself with too much to do that is unnecessary?

I've decided to just the the invitation, with the enclosure card with the website too. I don't really need the invitations, sort of in the same situation as you, but I want to do them.

We are doing the same thing - just a formal invite with no enclosures. My invite lady said it well - the STD is what people respond and book based on. The invite is a way of being polite, proper, and more formal - really getting people ready for the wedding.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
