I've searched through other examples of bride's RSVP wording, and while there are some great examples... nothing is fitting my situation.

 

My wedding is 6/6 in St. Thomas and the AHR is 6/18 at home. I put together a pocketfold invitation (with separate inserts for the ceremony in St. Thomas and the reception at home). While I *think* I know exactly who is coming to the ceremony (about 20 people), I feel the need to put an RSVP spot for the ceremony on the card too... because my family is weird... and I have heard rumors of one family member telling another that they are coming... but they never actually told ME, the bride, of their intentions. Alas, I digress...

 

Here is what I have right now... I can no longer tell if it's perfectly clear what I am asking, and my family and friends are really being of no help.

RSVP

Kindly reply by May 1st, 2010

 

Name(s)___________________________________________ __

 

Ceremony – June 6 - St. Thomas, USVI

 

___ Our Bags Are Packed! Accept.

___ We Burn Easily! Decline.

Reception – June 18 - Latham, NY

___ Accept.

Please indicate your meal choices:

#___Sirloin Steak #___Chicken Marsala

#___Stuffed Sole #___Vegetarian Penne

___ Decline.

Please please please any help, advice, anything is greatly appreciated. Tear it apart if you feel the need, I just seriously need some input.

I think that you should get rid of the "accept/Decline" after the wording for the Destination wedding, if anything put it before. This is how I worded it:

Please RSVP by August 2, 2010

Names:

________________________________________

Yes, we will see you on the beach ( you could add "in St. Thomas")

______# of Adults, _______# of children


______No, but we will be toasting from afar

We will be attending the welcome dinner on
Saturday, October 9, 2010( you could put "we/I will be attending the reception in Latham, NY on June 18 )

_______ Yes

#___Sirloin Steak #___Chicken Marsala
#___Stuffed Sole #___Vegetarian Penne

_______ No

I hope this helps, bc I know how you feel!! I went CRAZY for weeks trying to get it right!
Good Luck

Hi! I would guess you are also having a reception in St. THomas after the ceremony too, right?? If yes, this is what i would do (feel free to ignore of course!!!!)

 

And PS, my family is the same way, my parents just randomly decide to invite people on a daily basis, and we have to literally track down half of our family because apparently they like to ignore the stamped RSVP cards and envelopes that came with their invites. Don't get it!

one suggesttion is to number your rsvp's... not all guests remember to put their name on it. Also, they may not answer all of the questions( they may just respond to the wedding and not the AHR) so be prepared!

This is a wonderful idea - I can imagine some people in my family just deciding not to put their names on and sending it back along. Thanks for the suggestion, and I guess I should start tracking down my phone number list now, just to be prepared!

    • 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?
