STD vs. Early Invitation?
Posted 17 September 2008 - 03:55 PM
So now my question is, should we just go ahead and do an actual invitation with all the booking info and a letter enclosed? It seems early, but it would be a waste of postage to send out a STD without additional info that people need... and an STD with the booking info feels much more like an invite than a simple STD. We are doing boarding pass invites/STDs - we don't want to do a formal standard invitation. So, we are thinking about doing invites now with all the info needed to book the trip, and then a follow-up letter after the holidays reminding people that those who plan to go need to book their rooms soon, with an AHR-STD enclosed with that letter.
We are inviting everyone to both the ceremony in Mexico (because people we thought wouldn't go, now want to go... so why not ask everyone) and also the AHR... so we are talking about 250+ invites. I don't want to keep bleeding money over unnecessary postage. With this approach, we are already looking at 3 mailings for all those people: 1) Invites for the ceremony; 2) Reminder letter for the ceremony + AHR STDs, and 3) AHR Invites. One issue is that we don't have the AHR date set, and won't for several more weeks. We could do the AHR invite with the reminder letter instead of an STD, but since the AHR won't be until June/July and the reminders go out in January, it seems too far out for an invite.
Sorry if this sounds confusing, but I don't know how else to word it. Just wanted to get other people's thoughts on the proper way to handle it and I would happily welcome suggestions on how to condense it more efficiently. Thanks in advance!
