    I would like to add an insert with my invitation that has accomodation information...with that insert I would like to mention something about the fact that I understand that some people will not be able to join due to other circumstances... also, I would like to add that there is no need for presents.


    Thanks for your help!

        assume it is implied. Please do not put anything in there about gifts AT ALL. Also, anytime you send out an invite you do it with the understanding that not everyone will make it. I'd leave it alone

          I would follow up your resort and TA details "Please note that your presence is present enough."

          If you're having an AHR, then you can add "We understand not everyone will be able to make it to the resort, so we invite you to join us for our AHR (followed with details)."

          If you're not having an AHR, I don't think it's necessary to explain that you understand that not everyone can come. It's pretty much a given that not everyone's going to come.

            I agree with everyone else. I would not put anything regarding gifts on your invites; we did mention in our pre-travel newsletter in the welcome paragraph the "Your presence is present enough" without specifically mentioning gifts. And it is implied that that you understand that not everyone can make it ...

              I would ask your TA for accomodation details to put down. This is what our TA suggested (improved a little by us):
              We have been working with a dedicated Destination Wedding Travel Specialist to arrange the best travel packages for our wedding. To ensure coordination in all planning, we encourage everyone to make their arrangements through TA Name. Contact TA Name and number or by email at (TA email) to secure your travel & hotel accommodations today.

              Please also feel free to research your travel on your own. But please keep in mind that if you do not stay at the resort there will be a fee for a day pass in order to attend the wedding festivities.

              In terms of the present I agree with the other girls about putting "please know that your presence at our wedding is present enough." That is what we are going to put but still register some places because there will be people who can't come to our wedding that will want to buy us a gift. So if you do that you could put in there "please know that your presence at our wedding is present enough. But some requests for registries have been made so we have registered at...." or something like that!

                  I was wondering this too...so thanks for asking & posting & for all those that replied with info. DW's are great that you don't have all the "rules/etiquette" as regular weddings, but it's hard to know what to do with certain things

                    Great question...and great advice from all of the ladies who made suggestions! I'll be incorporating some of it into my own invitations now, for sure! :)

                      Thanks everyone!!!!! This helps!!! More than anything I am trying to be sensitive to the fact that so many people want to be there but may not be able to because of financial restraints. I think this makes people feel guilty or bad that they may not be able to attend your wedding... I have seen some invites that at least have a statement about this and I really liked it - I just can't seem to find them now :) Thanks for all the advice!!!!!!!
