    the prices everyone put on their website--were they just for a basic room? or did you include info on upgrade? also, did you clarify that they prices were only available through your TA and/or had a specific date they were valid for? i don't want to put too much pressure on my guests.... but at the same time if i get a great deal for them i don't want them to miss out on it!

      I wouldn't put the price on the STD. The website will suffice.

        I say put your wedding website on your STD> that is what we did and then we included all of our info on our wedding website!

        Hope that helps!

          I would put the website on the STDs and not the pricing.

            Our STD led guests to our website and TA. They can contact the TA for prices. In our STD letter (we did only email STDs) we noted that we secured a group rate and room block. Everyone knows that a trip for a destination wedding will involve a bit of $$$. I went to a wedding in Houston from Chicago and spent $1000 so for 2 days, so either way they should know that some money is involved.

                I think the problem with putting pricing on the STD, besides the word clutter, is that the prices change. Usually, a TA will only be able to secure a rate for a short period of time and then afterwards it is no longer available, hence making any information on the STD (or even the website for that matter) inaccurate. Since people may also choose to make their own travel/accomodation arrangements seperately, I would just put the website URL on the STD and then update your website accordingly.

                  My vote is for leaving the price off of the STD...leave the dirty work up to your wedsite...maybe you can add a "count down for registration" on the front page?

                    Like just about everyone else here I vote website. Perhaps you can create an email mailing list to provide updates and alert people to when the content on the website has been changed. That way if anything changes your STD's will not be incorrect.

                      I too agree the website is the best place for details on the rates. I think the more information you can put on there to help them make their decision (like info re: upgrades, etc), the better. People will appreciate that you have made the effort to reduce their expenses.

                      However, if you're worried about deals expiring, etc., maybe you can add a brief footnote or other language to the STD encouraging guests to visit the website right away for limited offers.
