Ok, I have a dilemna! I planned on sending save the date/announcement letters with resort info out now and to everyone who is invited to the wedding. We're talking almost 200 people. Once the people have confirmed and began paying for their trip, I was going to send out formal invites, message in a bottles to the people that are going about 6 weeks before the wedding or whatever the proper procedure is.


Ok, my sister in law is finishing up on my monogram and I am about ready to send out the announcements however I want something better. I have been looking for paper and envelopes to match my color and I was just going to print out the info on that and send it, nothing fancy just have my monogram on it. I can't even find the paper I want so I was just going to put it on nice, thick white papter. Something very low cost.


However, after looking at different sites like vista prints I saw that I can really have what I want but it will cost me! I really wanted to keep the budget low on these things and keep it simple but now I know that I can have what I want, I want it. But I know in my budget that extra cost is just not there!


What should I do?

I would save the extra money for the actual invites. Keep the announcements simple...most people are likely to just mark the calendar and not keep the card.


It's the cool bottle invite they will want to keep.

In reference to Vistaprint, have you signed up for their emails or looked online for current coupon codes? Everything that I've ordered from them was free & all I had to pay for was shipping. So I'm just wondering if what you saw in terms of pricing was with their special emails.

If this isn't in your budget then you should probably go with something less expensive because there might be something else down the line really worth blowing the budget for. I also like the idea of splurging on the invites as opposed to the STD's.

I just ordered 100 postcards for free from VistaPrint. I just paid shipping. They just emailed me again with another free sale today. If you PM your email address I can send the offer to a friend. I'm using the postcards for my RSVP cards for my message in a bottle invites.

    • 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?
