    okay so, i did my STDs through vista print on a postcard..really cute..but i put invitation to follow and my wedding website. But since im doing message in a bottle invites which can get expensive if you order alot, i do not want to send them to those truly not interested or def no goign . SO, i want to re-do the STD postcard to include wording to the effect of saying, please call to informally rsvp by... or please call to rsvp by... if interested. or i need a headcount so please rsvp by...

    i do not want to send a rsvp card since i will do that with the actual invite, i want them to just informally call me and let me know if if they think they may or may not go....so i will put my number after the wording i guess

    and i will not put invitation to follow...this way, if they respond to the std with a complete no, they can not assume an invitation will still follow the std....


    i would also like a head count anyways to let the travel agent knnow and to see where my budget is headed....


    help PLEASE SO I CAN REORDER THE stdS...THANKS LADIES..!!

      hmmm. I like the "Please call to Informally RSVP by: ____" Can you put something like "Formal Invites will be sent to those who express interest" or anything like that? That may be too long. How much space do you have on the STD? How many people are you inviting? I sent 110 STD's that said Formal Invite to follow, and now I'm dreading having to send that many formal invites when I know a lot of these people arent interested. I'm glad you thought of this before you sent them out! I'm sure everyone understands that you need to have a head count for budgeting & wedding planning purposes.

      I'll probably send out a follow-up email to my guest list because I think a lot of them got the STD, thought about it, then got on with their lives and I want to make sure they can book while the prices are still reasonable.

      Good Luck...Let us know what you decide!

        I am wondering the samething as well. I need to know to be able to secure a group rate when the times comes. I thought of having them rsvp if they are interested on my wedding website but I think I would rather talk to them personally.

          i think i am inviting about 75 guests...but hoping for only 50...but some are singles so it still will be alot of actual mailings going out, not just half, u know...and i know at least a few that will def not go and this way by the time im ready to order the invitations, they know if they dont call me to informally rsvp i will be calling them to put them on the no or yes list...honeslty since its a DW, they should be booking or at least know if they will have the money to go by the time i send out the actual invitation...so i think thats fair to both of us...i dont want them to rsvp on the website because honestly not everyone read everything or is comp savy so i need to speak to them in person or over the phone to see what they are thinking or leaning towards, u know...

          but the suggestion about of ... "Please call to Informally RSVP by: ____" is perfect unless someone has somethign else better or nicer...and im still not putting invite to follow so they dont expect it...and alot of times peopel give you the run around..so once they say no..thats it, they can go ahead and book but im not goign to go crazy and order another batch of invites if some decide last minute...thats y im not putting invite to follow....

          thanks for ur suggs, keep them comign lol :-)

            I like this... Please call to Informally RSVP by: ____

            or... if you've done a wedding website you could direct ppl there to RSVP, I know that the wedding website I did had this option - you could do both.
