SO, I haven't ordered my invites yet, mainly because I didn't know what information I needed to include because I haven't heard back from my WC until yesterday. sad.gif Anyway, my wedding is Dec 13th, and the WC recommended that the RSVP date be Oct 1st. However, my invites may take between 1-3 weeks to print and deliver! SO that puts me at mailing them out the 3rd week in September. (assuming 3 weeks to print them)

 

Let's cut to the chase- how short is too short of time to have your guests RSVP? Or should I just push back the RSVP date to October 7th or 15th?

do you already have a good idea about who's coming? if so, and the invite is just a formality, then oct. 1 is fine. however, if you don't know who really is joining you, then i think you should push it back. if you mailed them sept 21, that would give them less than 2 weeks...

Usually 4 weeks is the standard. We mailed our invitations out in June and put the deadline August 15 to give people more time. We are still waiting for about 20 responses and the deadline has passed. I'm sure with having this much time people forget, so maybe having a shorter deadline would help. Do you already have an idea of who's coming/booked already? Did you send out save-the-dates?

We pretty much know who is coming by looking at who has booked. I have a handful of "maybes" as well.

 

Are you all sending invites to people you know aren't coming as well? I know there's some people who want one even though they're not coming. Is it tacky to send them to them?

We sent an invitation to everyone we sent a save-the-date to even though we knew they weren't coming. Those were the people that responded the quickest aside from the people that already booked. It's the maybes, or we have no ideas that we are still waiting on.

Ok, yeah. They're tacky. But they're harmless :)smile105.gif

 

It's just a shower, it's not your wedding. If your wedding invites came out this way I'd go gun.gif on the person who made them. But it's a shower...

 

I agree with everyone else. Pick your battles and what you're going to stress over. This isn't something you should get upset about.

 

Hope you can relax about it. There'll be plenty more issues to stress about before the big day, I promise!

Is this response supposed to be in another section? Didn't quite make sense. :)

We sent out wedding invites to everyone who we gave STD's to(that sounds funny...lol.) Even if they aren't going, we still gave them invites.

We're getting married on Oct.16th and I just mailed out our invites on Saturday. I think 4-6 weeks is standard, and if a STD has been sent so guests are aware of what you're planning, it should be fine....I could be wrong though! cheesy.gif

    • 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.
