We sent our guests really nice STD's a year before our wedding and everyone loved them. Our guest list is only family and consists of about 40 people (including children.) After much thought and discussion we have decided that we are not going to send out traditional formal invitations. This will help us save $ and is also one less thing to worry about getting done. That being said....I want to send all the guests an email that they could respond to with their personal info to help us get the details settled for the wedding. Mind you I am TERRIBLE at computer stuff - what is the best way to put something together that will be colorful and incorperate our logo while also allowing people to respond to the questions I need answers to? Please help if you can....

 

As far as wording I was thinking of saying something like this, let me know if you have any tips as far as wording or questions I should ask:

 

We hope that you have Saved the Date,

It's come the time - details can not wait,

Your answers to the questions below,

Will help us plan an awesome trip to Mexico!

 

1) Who's comming? Please list the names of those who will be traveling south of the boarder with us!

 

2) When will you get there? Airline, as well as date and time of arrival and departure info would be very helpful.

 

3) What sounds good? For our reception, let us know who would like to order Beef vs. Fish. Children's meals will ordered for the little ones!

 

4) Can we play a song for you? Give us a list of some of your favorite tunes to dance to!

Sarah - I think your text sounds great! It's catchy and fun. I think all you need to worry about is putting together the graphics & layout. I bet someone like Anny might be able to help you with that...

Great suggestion about the evite website - I spent the afternoon getting this all set up and have already emailed them to all my guests. It is going to work perfectly since I was able to ask my guests all the questions I wanted answers to - thanks for the advice - you girls rock!smile159.gif

Yeah! This is AWESOME! I sent the evites out last night and have all ready gotten several responces. My guests are able to tell me about their flight info and which meal they would like for our reception and give me a list of the songs they would like to hear at the reception. Talk about instant responce! And best of all it was FREE! Now I don't feel so bad about spending more than I wanted on their OOT bags (I would rather spend it on something they can use while on the trip rather than postage!)smile159.gif smile29.gif smile159.gif

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
