Is it ok to put a note in your invitations telling people we will accept their resort booking as their RSVP instead of an actual RSVP card? Maybe add on their to call us with immediate regrets so we can cross them off? I didn't order RSVPs with my invites and I really don't want to spend $$ on postage because everything is international for us but is this rude or tacky? I feel like it'll be easier to keep track of it this way anyway since people don't always send back response cards anyway.

Thoughts or suggestions please! and thank you :)

I think it is okay but do you know that all of your guests are staying at your resort? Also there are usually last-minute people who book late so you don't want to count them out. You can always have people call/email you with the rsvp so you don't have to get the cards. Good luck :)

I agree with starchild. Can you be sure that everyone will be staying at your resort? If you do decide to have people call you to rsvp as well, just make sure that you are working with 1 master list and the rsvp gets ticked off as soon as you receive it.

 

Let us know what you decide!

I was worried about people not sending the RSVPs back in time so I wrote all the details (hotel name, TA's info) on the RSVP cards and requested that those interested email or call me. I too had a master list, as people are calling me and emailing me I have been updating the list.

In case they don;'t book at the same resort, it might be good to get all the cards in. But in case you want to cut corners and save some funds, I have seen a lot of websites where people put their RSVP directly on the website. That way saves time and money, plus it seems like it would be really easy to quickly check! Just another suggestion for you!

Have you got a wedding website? In that case, perhaps you could ask people to RSVP there and save yourself some $$ on postage.

 

As far as etiquette goes, I think it's okay though to tell people that you'll know they're coming when they've booked their trip! But, like other posters have mentioned, some people may not book until the last minute, so hopefully that wouldn't mess with your planning. Then again, even if you ask people to RSVP, people may end up changing their minds about actually booking anyways.

 

Personally, I'm asking people for a pre-RSVP just so I can get an estimate of how many people are planning to come. But ultimately I think the formal RSVP will be when they actually book their trip, as you've said.

thanks ladies! We do have the option on our website so I do think I will just have them do it that way. Getting people to RSVP is such a pain! I understand some people really don't know yet but it makes my life so much harder wink.gif

Along with our parents, we have been personally talking to all of the people that have mentioned going as well as the ones that we really want there so we can get a pre-RSVP count. We set up the RSVP on our website and I don't see anything wrong with asking for an RSVP there or via email. Just make sure you talk to some of the older generations that may not have a computer.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
