Save the date etiquette help!
Posted 03 November 2009 - 03:02 PM
I have a bit of a conundrum regarding our save the date invites for our destination wedding. We will be getting married in Nov. 2010 in Mexico and had arranged our trip package so everything is booked and ready to go. Our immediate families know of our plans, including the information that a deposit is required by Dec. 13 2009 to guarantee a spot on the trip and to be a part of the early booking bonus.
On our save the date invites we are torn over whether to include the full price of the trip or to give our guests the contact info to find out the price themselves. I believe it is tacky and presumptuous to fully state the trip package price options (our save the date's clearly state we are getting married in Mexico and will be having a reception in our home city for all those who can't attend, so everyone knows we will be going away no matter what). My fiance wants to include as much info as possible because her reasoning is that she wants people to know up front what kind of price they can expect and they can decide from there, plus have the advantage of taking part in the early booking bonus.
We fully expect it won't be a large wedding party in Mexico, asides from a few of those on the fence. Some guest we know can't make it because of money or health or other issues, but we will be sending them a save the date regardless.
Is there a proper way of wording our invites so as not to insult anyone? I'm partial to including all the trip info, including prices, on our website which we'd include on the card. Or should we just throw it all on there and let the guest decide? We're sending an actual wedding invitation later on this summer for guests to RSVP to our reception at home. By the time our wedding invites hit mailboxes, the final payment for our trip package would have passed.
Can anyone help with their advice on what they did for their destination weddings? Is there an etiquette involved? Any suggestions would greatly help alleviate this already stressful process.
