So I've decided at the end of April to send a formal invite to EVERYONE...My RSVP will be in the form of a Postcard and they will RSVP for Mexico and also my AHR which will be 2 weeks after we get back. This way I get an exact head count.
Then, a week or so before Mexico, I will send my Travel Brochure and Luggage tags to those who RSVP'd yes for mexico.
It's alot of postage, but that's ok..At least I will have an accurate head count. The only snag I will have is if we decide to do to the AHR in Sept....then I will probably have to send a seperate invite for that since I can't expect people to RSVP in April for something in Sept. But I will dross that Bridge when I get to it!! LOL
How did everyone else handle theirs

The wedding police aren't going to come and drag you away if you don't do them. But personally, I would do them. I can't explain it but there is this giddy happy "this is really happening" feeling that you get when you send them out. Plus relatives/ friends who can't make it can still have a keepsake of your day.
Online Printers like Vista Print can print up invites inexpensively and might not cost you more than DIY invites. Plus it would save you the headache of one more thing to do. We eloped but did our announcements, AHR invites, and thank you cards for around $100. Personally, I'll throw money at a situation to save me headaches.

I did put on the brochure that the final RSVP deadline is TBD... so I guess I need to send out at least one more thing...
I'm kind of torn on the invite thing too... I'm sure we will send out a final brochure to those booked with all the details.
FMIL wants us to send some "Announcements" to friends and very extended family that weren't invited...
Gosh, there really is so much to think about! I just want to get married! lol

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

The one thing I still have not figure out is what to do about getting an RSVP for AHR from those who are going to the wedding. My two thoughts are to send out a reminder postcard for them to go to our website to RSVP or to just send them the announcement too...

Besides, we are having an AHR in September and we are having about 200 people so I'll save my money for those invitations. The wedding, our group is small, 40 ppl, so I'm not gonna waste the extra money to send invitations to those few people who probably won't RSVP or book by our deadline.

But I do understand what some of you say when you wanted to have invites just for the sake of having them. But for us, we decided against it. Either way, it's all depends on what you want.
