Amy and Shannon - If you are looking to find a way to save a little on invitations you can have your guests RSVP via your website. This would save you money on return cards, envelopes, and stamps. Mywedding.com has an option for this. I also just realized that you can include multiple events (rehearsal dinner, wedding, ahr). I was so excited about this because we are having an AHR in St. Louis and possibly in Chicago!! Amy it looks like you have a mywedding.com site, you should check it out!!

Thank you. Most of our guests are on email and use the internet, but a chunk aren't so they wouldn't know the first thing about it =(

 

My FMIL just recently went to our website for the first time, and it's been up since April ... lol

 

I did look into it, but I think we will stick with the traditional invites and suck up the cost of that one =(

lol..don't you love it!!! Well GUESS WHAT! I posted on facebook on my Future MIL's page that I wanted her to go on and hear the song....WELL, Kevin's cousin happened to see me post it, and Immediately went to our site..and her wedding is in March, AND...you guessed it, thats her song too! dammit!
But- we are planning to still keep it. Its a great song, and there will not be too many repeat guests- just mostly his mothers side, not his fathers side or anyone on my side.
I also love- 'She's got whatever it is" by Zach Brown Band- Its too quick but I think we might play that second and invite everyone else up to dance!

YOu know what...I just might do that! Thanks for that idea. I just hope everyone will go on- I can't see why not. Even Kevin's grandparents have signed the page, so everyone else is younger pretty much and had better be online! Thats a good idea!

I was worried at first that my Mom might not think this was formal enough, but even she said it would be more convenient. You save people a trip to the mailbox! One of my Grandma's doesn't do the Internet, so we thought about providing an option to call. Otherwise she can just have someone else help her.

oh thats a great idea about the option to call! I like that!

I don't know what I"m doing yet in Mexico in terms of after our dinner/reception. I feel like the Iberostar is nickle and diming us when you consider you have to pay per person for dinner AND coctail hour over 10 people, and then, doing something with a DJ after....I think we're skipping it. I almost want to skip the coctail hour because what is the difference? People can just get whatever at the bar?! I don't get it. It would be nice to have a definitel PLACE to meet, but can't I do that informally? I don't know. I know also some people just get the ipod set up with speakers- we will have to look into that!

I hear ya, it's an all inclusive and you still have to pay for cocktail hour and 'dinner'. But we are doing the private reception, to still have the feel of a traditional wedding. Plus we aren't doing an AHR.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
