Also I definitely think you need to send invites to people even if they've already told you they are not coming. It shows them that you care about them and think they are a part of your lives.
Lastly I disagree about sending out your invitations very early. People WILL forget (to RSVP that is) because there are many people who aren't going to know if they can or cannot go until it gets a little closer to the wedding. I think sending them out 3 months before the wedding (basically a month earlier than a normal wedding) is perfect. Otherwise people hesitate committing and in the end, end up forgetting to RSVP at all.

Honestly, last year I was invited to a wedding that was this March. We got the invites almost a year ahead of time (about 10 months) and I didn't "forget" about the wedding! We basically treated it as a vacation. I personally don't feel comfortable asking guests to fork over a few thousand without giving them all of the information first. So, I'll definately be sending out invitations early. Having said that, I don't plan on leaving it at that. I will be sending my guest's updates etc., so they are aware of the progress. Aaron and I have been engaged for a year now, and have been planning a DW from the beginning, so all of our guests know of the expenses. Maybe our situation is unique, I'm not sure. But I'm not worried about sending out the invitations that early.
Thanks for your concerns though Kash and Aimee - I appreciate you guys looking out for me!!

How very Bridezilla to say, no? I suppose we just don't mention the day pass in that worst case scenario? I keep tossing this around and believe me, we've sent at least 4 emails so far with Tammy's info, the urgency to book so that we can have our loved ones with us for this big day for us and all that jazz so we're starting to feel like spammers.
Thank you for the feedback!

Can you imagine going to a wedding at the Hilton in your city where you get there and they ask you to pay $100 to get inside? As a guest that would completely turn me off. Hey that may be a good way to cut down your guest list....lol.
It sucks that there is a fee at all but unfortunately that burden is yours since you chose the location. I agree that even if you have to sacrifice something else you should work this into your budget. These resorts must make a killing off of weddings!!
