    We booked with sunwing as well and went through the exact same thing. We have 20 people that put their deposits in (including us) but yes it was so stressful!! We never did STD's but at the moment we are working cards to send out basically saying thanks for booking and we are so excited you will be joining etc...... we are also including a personalized little booklet that talks all about all the details wedding date etc etc. We did get a few jabs from people that we never sent invites so I hope these cards and letters will show we care and want them there!!! I also explained that by doing it this way we are getting a better deal.........

    Hope that helps - congrats to you and yours!

      HI LAdies,

      Does anyone one have an example of their save-the-dates explaining the deposit and so on?

          We put all the details on how to book with our TA and about the deposit on our wedding website and then included the wedding website on our save the date cards.  Also, as I was worried that some people might not go to the website (or have internet access!) we included a "Travel Information" letter with the Save the Date card that explained everything, and had the following notation:

           

           

          "NOTE: Air Canada requires a deposit of $150 per person at the time of booking to hold the vacation package. Should you choose to use the group rate, this is due no later than October 2, 2011. Because there is an Early Booking Bonus in effect, all packages have to be paid in full by Jan 6th 2012. You can make your final payment at any time prior to Jan 6th ..."
