    That sounds like a good idea. I think I'll do that too.

I'm so excited! Good luck with all of your wedding planning. I"ll keep you posted if I hear anything else about RMB!

          Wow... either you are really good, or I'm way behind. I'm getting married 5.29.2010. I have sent my STD's and have created a website with the main info. I don't have a travel agent, but I do know my ceremony and reception location. That's it! Bags, dress, etc... girl! I feel like a bum now. I think I'll start to look for a dress in a couple of weeks. I have a lot to do. I have an RSVP tab on my site and have only 28 responses so far. But not one is from the Groom's side. I don't think they have computers or something. So i have no idea who is coming. I think i'll send an email in a couple of weeks.

              I am a May 28, 2010 bride! We are getting married at the Iberostar Bavaro in Punta Cana, DR. I am feeling behind after reading this thread, but it certainly has given me motivation. =)

                The next thing you should do is book your travel agent, get some quotes and email those quotes to your guests with a date deadline with when they need to have their deposit in by. My TA gave my guests two weeks from the time she put the hold on the block of rooms to put in a $50 per person deposit down and it worked! Every person in my party that's coming is confirmed nearly 8 months before my wedding. I highly suggest you do that next!

                  I did the same thing. First we sent out a "wedding update" email letting our guests know what our plans were (Mayan Rivieria, travel dates, airline, etc) and gave them a head's up that we would sent another email in a few weeks with pricing and they should be prepared to put down a deposit of $150. Once we got our quote from our TA, we sent it out and guests had two weeks to call her and apply their deposit. We have 30 people and another 10 confirmed but are booking later. So excited! I plan on sending out formal invitations closer to the date (say March-ish) with excursion info, group activities, wedding timeline...stuff like that.

                      We did that too! I find that worked so well. And people are usually ok with putting $150 down right away, and then they can pay the rest when they are ready. We had 55 people book within the 2 week deadline that they were given. But there are aprox 4 others who are coming that wanted to go with their own deal. But they say they'll be there for sure. One's a groomsmen, so he better be!!!
