    Hi there,

    Just wondering whether it is necessary to send out rsvp with the invitation even though we need everyone to contact the travel agent to pay their deposits and hold their place? I'm concerned if we send out the RSVP, it will be redundant, and if we don't, I worry people will think I've forgotten to attach it.

    I want to order my invite, and an "information" page with the travel agent's contact info. and pricing, so just the two pages in the envelope?

    Does that make sense?

    Also, I tried looking through the threads, but wasn't able to find anything related... but has anyone used weddingpaperdivas.com, for their invites? They seem to be a reasonable option....

    Any help is appreciated!

      We used wedding paper divas and are having guests RSVP via our website... It is actually really easy... and we included a card with the website on it...

        We didn't order the response cards because we knew everyone that was going. Just a waste of money, IMO.

          I used wedding paper divas for my STDs and loved them. Their service was great and the price right.

          Not sure about the response cards, if you already have a number of people booked by the time you're ready to send - probably not necessary. If your guests need another 'reminder' to book, then might be a nudge... (although at a cost!)

            We are sending out RSVP cards since it will help us to know all who are planning on coming we invited around 80 people some we do not see often so this is kind of a push for them to let us know. We want to leave enough time to make sure we made enough bags etc.

              I used wedding paper divas and they were amazing! Super quality and a great price! I used the cherry blossom ones.

                I was also wondering about the RSVP cards. I too think it is a waste of money when u can figure out how many people are booked through the travel agency. Like someone said...they can rsvp through the wedding site. I am more concerned about the older generation that doesn't use the internet, like my parents. hahaha!

                  Keep in mind that all of your guests may not book through the TA you chose. I have had a couple of relatives contact their own.

                    This is the exact reason why we are also sending response cards with our invites. We have had several people book on their own and we want to make sure we have the head count correct for everything.

                    I used paper divas for my STDs and will be using them for my invitiations as well. I love their designs, the quality is nice and the price is right. Good luck!

                      I'm confused as well!!!! I love Wedding Paper Divas, but do I send the STD now, and then a formal invitation 3-month's prior?
