This may be a really stupid question, but as we are having a very small wedding, of immediate family and 1 or 2 close friends, we COULD just inform everyone in person about the details of the wedding.

 

This forum has all of these cute ideas though, and I am considering boarding pass STDs because they are the coolest idea ever, and also I have tons of time since the wedding isn't for 2 years. (the consensus on the forum seems to be to send out STD's about 15 months to 1 year before the wedding)

 

My parents are also involved in the planning process because they are helping with a lot of the cost. SO question: Do I send my parents, and my FI's parents a Save the Date? I may not actually do invitations since everyone is already aware of the plan and will be apart of the process. It just seems a little strange because I see them weekly and they are well aware of the date and location and all of the details.

 

Did you send your parents invites or STDs?

I think they would love to have one just to keep for memories. My parents got a STD and will get an invite even tho its their return address on the envelope :)

I second that. My FMIL is a scrapbooker and I know she is going to want one for just that purpose.

I think invites are a "Do"! A written or printed invite just really sets the tone for the day and expresses how special the day is regardless of how big the wedding is. For very intimate or small weddings, I've heard of couples doing handwritten or very personal invites. In the age of computers and online printing services, you could do a beautiful invite that is cost effective but still express how much you would treasure the presence of those special people you have chosen to invite to your wedding.

Alright thanks everyone! I will definitely send them one. I never even thought of it as a memento or keepsake for them so that is great!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
