Formal Invitations - Do I need?
Posted 20 February 2007 - 10:02 AM
Just wanted to know your thoughts on whether I need to buy/make formal invitations and what others did for an island wedding. Our travel agent/planner will send out an invitation with all the details and to RSVP her on pretty paper. Should I send out formal ones too or how did everyone include the info on the trip (i.e. what the week costs etc) in their invitations.

my invites will be pretty "traditional" in that it will just be the invite, and an RSVP card. i may do an additional insert if there's any more information i think they need - but I don't know what that would be yet.
long story, short - i do think you can do whatever you want! there are girls who aren't doing invites at all. but since many people haven't RSVPd to us yet, i think this might be the only way to get them moving!

I am making my invitations and this was just because I didn't want to spend a lot of money on them. I bought a kit at staples, it has the invitation, the reply card, and the reception card, and all the envelopes, the kit was I think $25 or $35, I can't remember, and I'm going to print them on my fathers printer (he has a really nice printer) and I'll probably put our monogram on them as well, to make them pretty. They are white with a silver raised border. This was one area where I felt I could save money.
There are some invitation threads here, some of the girls have gorgeous invitations. My favorite, off the top of my head was Christa's, she did the pocketfold ones, and she did them herself, can't remember the cost, but they were very pretty.
sorry to ramble!

Then 3 months in advance I sent out formal pocketfold invitations that my mom and I made by hand with an insert with simply our website address (which has all the travel info), and the RSVP cards/envelopes.
I found it was helpful to send out the formal invites because it reminded people to get on the ball and make their reservations/get passports/etc if they hadn't yet.

Once its gets closer to the wedding, I will send nicer invitations to the people who have booked and are coming. This way I will avoid spending too much money on sending nice invitations to everyone. The save the dates are really cool and have all the important info on them.

I'm going to do my formal invite (well it's not really that formal) the first week of March - 5 months before the wedding - is that too early?
I can't figure out how to attached...hope this works.
