I have debating on sending out official invitations. We have already sent out STD's and are planning on sending out a newsletter or something to those coming. We are having an AHR that we will be sending out invitations for.

 

What are your thoughts on not sending out official wedding invitations?

Im having the same issue, I dont want to send our official invites to the people that I know are coming and send the AHR invites to everyone else.

I just sent out std's, not official invitations. I am going to do nice invitations for our AHR. Since we are inviting a lot of people to our AHR and only about 30 are coming to our wedding, I'm considering the AHR like a second wedding.

 

As long as your std included all of the necessary information, I don't think you need to send out official invitations.

We did something similar with ours. For the wedding in Jamaica, we only sent the information to close family and friends via email. We didn't send invitations to everyone in the mail because we knew that most people wouldn't make the trip since we're having an AHR when we return. We will send out AHR invites to everyone on our list, which may spark a few last minute travellers... but that's highly doubtful.

I am sending out official invitations in order to get a count of how many attending plan to go on the catamaran cruise we're booking and I also need to ask people for their dinner choice to give to the hotel in advance. I am asking for an RSVP 6 months out too which will help me finalize my budget numbers for OOT bags and such.

 

If you don't need to get this information, then I think you're probably good with a STD and a website.

Sorry, wish I could help. I'm not having an AHR as over 100+ guest have voiced that they will be attending our destination wedding in HHI. I've set up a website (included on the STD magnet) that contains all the information that they will need for travel, accommodations, groceries, outings, activities and such.

 

Maybe you can set up a website? I used one from ewedding.com. Easy templates. I just fill in the information, add photos and links and presto!

We have decided to just do invitations for the AHR. I sent out STDs already and about a month and a half before we leave for Jamaica, I am going to send out a news letter that includes a packing list and information for the resort. I was thinking about sending invites for both the Jamaica wedding and the AHR but it was going to cost too much. And people who are going to JAmaica have basically already booked their trips, so I did not see the need to send them an invite.

I set official invites even though all of our guests booked after they got the std. I did it more as a keepsake and a reminder for anyone that hadnt booked to book (which no one else did). Plus i really wanted the boarding pass invitations. Honestly, i dont think it was necessary for me to the official invites and if your already doing ahr invites maybe you could save your self some money and skip them. I think you should do whatever you want.

Hey everyone! I'm still fairly new to everything, and I'm afraid I can't figure out what AHR stands for. Can someone please fill in a clueless bride? :)

 

Thanks!

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
