Does this email to my guests encouraging them to book sound too pushy

Recommended Posts

I just composed and sent out this email tonight to encourage my invitees, who plan to attend the wedding to book their travel. I don't think it sounded too pushy but would love to get some opinions. Let me know and gracias!

Hola!

We hope you all are doing well and enjoying your summer.

In case you are thinking about joining us in Cancun, we are writing out of friendly courtesy to let you know that the Orbitz sale is scheduled to end on June 18, 2009 and the Excellence Resorts sale, offering 35% off, will expire on June 30, 2009. We want to ensure that all who attend have the opportunity to get the best rates possible. Also, for those of your traveling from NYC, I have also found great airfare rates out of both Newark and JFK airport in the $200 to $300 range for a non-stop flight!

In addition, we would like to let you know that we have recently updated the "events" page of our website jenandken2009.com to include the full description of the menu choices in case you are having a hard time deciding! If you have already RSVPed but would like to change your mind after reading the full description, just shoot one of us an email.

Just a friendly reminder that passports are now required for travel into Mexico. If you are planning to come to Mexico with us, now would be a great time to make sure your passport is up to date or to get your passport if you do not have one. With the new requirements newly implemented, at times, the US Department of State can be backed up on issuing them - generally it takes 4 to 6 weeks. Passport applications can be obtained and submitted through your local Post Office. Just bring two 2 x 2 color passport photos, taken within 6 months, and a check or money order in the amount of $75 made out to the US Department of State. Detailed information on passports can be found on the US Department of State website Welcome to Travel.State.Gov

Gracias!
Jen and Ken

I think that email is very nicely worded and no one should take offense. You are being pushy, just giving a friendly and courteous reminder. I would be unhappy if I was one of your guest and had forgotten about the deadline. I think they will be very appreciative of the reminder and also the update to check your website.

i think that it is great...some people may be ready to book but need direction.

 

remember: getting guests to RSVP and book is like hearding cats...so it is a good thing you have jennifer helping.
