If they've already said "no" do I have to send an invite???

Recommended Posts

Okay - so we sent out STD's in March for our November 09 wedding, and of course we've heard back from lots of ppl. We plan on doing formal invites in June or July with an RSVP (there was none with the STD). We have a lot of ppl (125) and I am making my invitations by hand - so that's a lot of time and effort! Do I have to send invites to those who have already said they aren't coming? It would save me a lot of time not to, but I am willing to do it if it's the correct etiquette. Any advice?

We sent out invites to everyone. Even though we had a lot who said no. The only people we even gave STD to were close friends and family and wanted to make sure even if they said no that they knew they were still invited to attend. Didn't want any drama. That being said, since we only gave STD and invites to our family and very closest friends I only had to send out 40 invites (1 per household or like our cousins over 18 off in college got their own) Our other friends have just been invited to AHR. AHR invites went out to about 220 people

I haven't sent out anything yet, but I dont plan on sending invites to the people who don't plan on coming. I'm only sending invites to those that have booked. We are sending out a lot of STD's and I think it would be a waste of money to send out a bunch of ivitations to people I know won't/can't attend.

yes, technically etiquette says you are supposed to ...we have a bunch of people who said no for sure but we are still sending them an invitation...plus some people do change their minds

We are, simply as a formality. Plus our invites have both the DW invite and the AHR invite in them, so while some may not be able to attend the ceremony, many will be able to attend the AHR. I wouldn't want anyone to feel hurt or excluded that they didn't even receive an invite.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
