Quick question. I sent out Wedding announcements to my guest back in Sep. I have received 44 responces from people that stated that they were going. My question is rates are now avail for guest to start booking and I would like to send something in the mail advising them of this, so they can contact my travel agent to start booking. How do I word this? Please see below of how the wedding annoucement was made and tell me where to pick up for the next set of info to be sent regarding booking. Thanks
Hello Family & Friends,
As you know we are in the process of planning our wedding. We are contemplating a destination wedding in a tropical location. ( the Riu hotels & Resorts, Ocho Rios Jamaica)
As someone important to us, we want to get your opinon on whether you could attend, given the following ballpark information.
It could be a 2 or 3 night travel package requiring a Friday of Monday or both off from work, Our projected dated are leaving Friday pct 23rd witha wedding date of Sat oct 24th,2009.
Estimated travel expences could start at around 750 per peron, including airfare,hotel accommodations,transfers to and from the airport and taxes. Minimum stay requirements are 3 days, this is up to you as your price depends on how long you stay.
We would love to have a destination wedding but wanted to check in with our most important guest before making this decision as we would love to share this important time in our lives with you. We are looking forward to hearing back from you! Please RSVP by Oct 1,2008 so that can have an accurate head count, from there more information will follow.

I think that is just asking for added on stress to you that you don't need that close to your wedding. Remember.....My opinion!

I hope so...but she just posted this yesterday and it said she just sent them out. I don't know, you could be right.
