Should I send Invitations?

Recommended Posts

I need to get some feedback from cruise brides concerning invitations. I sent out my STD back in April for my wedding in October 2009...most of my guest (approximately 50) have booked their cruise already. My question is...Should I send out formal invitations as well?

 

Your thoughts.......smile78.gif

I would say no, save your money and just send out wedding anouncements when you get married, but thats just my oppinon

I'm not a cruise bride but i would have to agree with Jenamie.... if pple have already booked then you should just save some money.....unless your std's said something like formal invites would fallow....

I would send them out. They are not just invites they are keepsakes and momentos. They are not presented the same way or look the same. They will slao give you guests their first impression of the wedding. How formal? What your colors are, etc. STD are great but tend to be more casual.

I wouldn't send out any invites. You said a majority of your guests already booked their trip. If anything, I look into just sending out an announcement. You could even do something yourself to save even more money.

I'm not a cruise bride, but I'm sending formal invites to those who have already booked....because like a dummy i put on my STD's "formal invite to follow".....so i feel like i have to!

 

i think it would be fine if you didnt though!

I'm not putting "formal invitation will follow" on my save the dates. I have time, but I'll probably only send invitations to our parents (for a keepsake) and people who haven't booked yet. I figure the purpose of the invitation is to RSVP, and if they've already booked, we know they're coming.

Ok I'm in the minority on this one. I would def send out invites. As some ppl stated invites are like a keepsake. I have alotta ppl who aren't attending my wedding but will probably keep the invites forever (mainly bc Ana DeRoux did an amazing job :-) ).

But I did thing differently. I didn't send out STDs just invites 11 months in advance... All of my group has booked at this point thou...

Good Luck.

hmmm... i'm a cruise bride but i didn't even think about this!! Maybe you could send out invitations but instead of it saying something like "So and So request the honor of your presence at their wedding" you could say "So and So are honored you will be joining them in celebration of their wedding"... and then just put the port information and maybe an updated schedule of events.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.

    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
