    We are hoping to charter a catamaran the night before our wedding. Any suggestions on how I can add this to my invitations? I would need to add something to the RSVP card and to the Information sheet. Just curious if anyone has done anything similar. I know it is common to schedule group outings and brunch's etc... How did you let your guests know the plans?

      Hey there! I wouldnt add those things to your invite. I did a welcome letter that listed the certain activities that we had going on that our guests could or could not attend. I would do something seperate for everything else you have going on.. IMO.

      Good Luck!

        Thanks. I would do this for most things but I would like to get a head count prior to the trip so that I make sure there are enough peoiple who want to go or so that I can reserve a bigger catamaran if needed.

          Hmm I see. Im just thinking sometimes too much info on one invite is way to much for some people. Maybe do a seperate RSVP card for the catamaran.

                I agree on the RSVP idea from Jennifer.
                We are putting all the information for our Welcome Cruise on our website. On the Save the Date we are putting recommended travel dates so people will be there for the cruise, then on the invitation RSVP card we will add a line for the cruise.

                    Thank you! This is what I plan to do also. I will include info on our website (assuming people will go onto it) however, I want enough info included with our info in case they do not want to go onto the website ( you know...those older folks, ha!) Are you adding information that the cruise will be paid for? I don't want anyone to hesitate to mark off the box because they don't know how much it will cost them. Also, I want to know how many are planning on going. Something like this? It doesn't sound right. I have such a hard time with the wording.

                    ___ Si! Save me a beach chair!
                    ---->> ___ Number joining us for a sunset sail.

                      We're having a sunset sail as our welcome gathering and I included the event information in our invitation. I did pocketfolds, so I made one of the inserts all about the "welcome sail" and also included a line for it on the RSVP. I too wanted a headcount before hand. Here's the link to the post about the my pocketfolds where you can see what it looked like.
