I am very familiar with this concept of controlling invites but I don't recommend it for DWs. Mainly because people RSVP to come and then don't. Others say no prematurely and then change there mind.


I'd recommend making one list and counting your heads then. I guarantee that your numbers WILL fluctuate a couple of times.


Another potential issue is when invites go to mutual friends at different times. Guests invited or not may question where their invite is.

Our B list really only consisted of people that would not know if they were invited one way or another, it was people that we felt like we should invite but if numbers got too high, they were the first we could exclude. We didn't send them STDs but we are ending up sending invitations to all. We are not doing any type of staggered RSVP since we are now pretty much including everyone.

Nope, I'm not planning on doing this--- I was just curious about what it entailed because the article I read wasn't real clear. Until I read the article, I never would have even thought of something that complicated to keep straight. At our guest list is too small to even justify doing it. We're doing everything in Mexico (wedding and reception) and have about 80 people on our invite list and only expect about 20-30. Our families are too big to do anything at home and still pay for everything ourselves. I was just curious if anyone else had heard of this idea...

I think I have a friend that did this, but I want to say that some people ended up finding out they were on the B list, I don't think they were very happy!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
