Is anyone not doing invitations. Amos and I are disagreeing about this. He thinnks that since we sent out save the dates, we don't need to send invites out, and we will know who is coming when they book the room.....

Are you asking people to respond on the STD? If not, I think you should do invitations. Invitations generally include a response card, so you know who is coming.

 

If, you are asking people to respond on the STD, then you may not have to.

 

OR. To save money, just send invitations to people you know are coming. I think the majority of us are sending out reception cards, accomodations and response cards with our invitations, so you will need to take these in to consideration also.

 

Did I make sense....I felt like I was just going round and round. lol

I was just about to post the same question. I was talking to 2 of my sisters today and they said there is no need to send out invitations because when I sent out my STDs, they said the book with our travel agent/wedding coordinator by a cut-off date (which is about 3 months before the wedding). I have a list from her of everyone that is coming. So by the time I would normally send out invitations, I will already know who is definitely coming. What do you all think I should do?

If you already know who all is coming I agree that a welcome letter would be sufficient. You should atleast send something to keep them in contact with whats going on.

same here~ I sent out the STD's with a little card that said book online here, and then invitations that repeat everything that is already said or after guests have already booked, is now seeming pointless!!

If you are trying to save money it doesn't sound like you need the invites. But if it's not a money issue, I'd do it. I LOVE the formality of the actual invite - it's like a mini gift! I'm also a paper product whore so I love anything like that.

Well I say make them then! I sent out std's, a second std reminder, and formal invitations. I also loved designing and sending out formal invitations though because there are few occasions where you can do that so I had fun with it. The cool thing about a DW is you can break tradition, but it sounds like you want to make those invites so why not?

    • 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?
