Hello!

 

My fiance and I will be getting married on 5/21/2011 in Turks & Caicos.  I will be sending out our STD magnets next week along w/ a flyer that my TA will be creating w/ all the resort details.  Do I still need to send out formal invitations?  The ONLY reason I can think to send them is to let our guests know where we'll be registered.  However, we are not going to register by the time the STD and flyers go out, so I don't know if I should include that info on there.  Any suggestions???

 

Thanks!

I don't really have any advice... I'm in the same exact predicament. I will put all the info on our website, but still feel more people will see it on an invitation. We are having an at home cookout style reception; so I might send out informal invites with registry info??

I think I might have figured out what I am going to do.  I am going to go ahead and send out our STD magnets w/ the flyer containing the resort info.  We're getting our engagement pics done in October, and my photographer can create invitations using our pics, so we'll just send those out as invites and include on there where we're registered at...

 

Good luck in your planning!!  :-)

I am having this problem!!

 

I just got my save the dates to mail and I have made a web site. I feel like there is no reason to send formal invitations because everyone will already have all the information. I feel like most people that want to come do already and I havent even sent the save the dates yet (guess I should have done it sooner, oh well). My mom wants me to send save the dates and/or invites to extended family that I barely know because she thinks its proper etiquette, but the whole point of a destination wedding to me was to keep it small and simple and not have to worry about inviting those kind of people.

 

Then there is the at home reception...

We are just doing a casual at home reception at a bar near our house. I dont know if I should do separate invites for that. And if so am I obligated to send those to my whole big extended family? Or is it ok to keep it on the smaller side too with family and friends that couldnt make it to our Mexico wedding? So stressful!

I think sending invites are a personal choice and depends also on the people you are inviting.   If they are tech savy people I say just do the STD and website.   However if they are not Tech Savy and need constant reminder i think an invite will be needed.  You don't have to do anything to fancy just like a follow up invite. 

 

I did save the date magnets, website and invites.  Most of our guests are from outside the US (Taiwan, South America, France) and the others lack memory and I love  my invites.

 

So i suggest just do what you want and not what people expect you to do.  Good Luck Happy planning : )

I was talking about invitations and STDs the other day, and the fiance was like why bother with invitations when the STDs have all the info. So I am thinking of just doing invitations, and doing them a lot earlier than normal.

People will need to know all the resort info anyway, so we are just going to send them out once we set a date, which will hopefully be this week, fingers crossed.

I can't wait to get started on all the DIY projects I want to do, This forum has really inspired my creative side. 

Thanks ladies.

I did a STD and a website and most of the people who plan on coming have looked at the site to ge the info they need.  BUT I am doing invites for those who aren't as tech savy and because I feel I need to.  Do whatever makes it easier for you.

    • 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?
