OK I have a question to everyone just sending their invites out. Are you sending your invites to ppl who have already booked their trips? I just couldn't imagine giving such short notice. But also I am doing a cruise so it has to be paid off by 8.24.09. I sent out my invites in Feb in think with our booking deadline being 3.31.09 it has now been extended to 5.31.09... I just felt like with the economy the way it is I wanted ppl to have as much time as possible to pay on their trips... Am I wrong

I have to have my final count by Oct 5th, so that will give about a 30 day cushion for those slackers.
As far as who to send them out to, I'm pretty sure you're supposed to send invites to anyone you sent an STD to. What if they just are procrastinating but then don't get the formal invite and then don't book? Or do you mean to people who have told you they absolutely can't come.
I have a very close cousin who already had a trip planned for that weekend but I'm still sending her invites, b/c not doing so would feel to me like I'm not inviting her. Does that make sense? The cost is worth it to me to let her know that I wish she was coming.
Thanks ladies for all your responses. I feel much better now!

Just the deposit not the entire trip to be paid for... it seriously helped in getting people to book their deposits anyways... now they have until Sept to pay off the rest of their entire trip... I wanted to give them as much notice as possible too...

I was thinking the same, I figured I'd put it on my dresser to use to put my jewelery in afterwards too. I also love that you can customize it to say whatever you want it to.
