We are renting a villa, or two, in Costa Rica, and need to find out how many people are on board for sure, so we know how many villas to rent for the week of Nov. 13-20,2011.
I know it's early to send out full invites, but we think it is the best way to get the info to people so that they can start saving and planning their trip.
Closer to the wedding, we will send something else out to everyone, maybe a brochure or newsletter-type mail out.
Anybody else send their invites right away?
We are doing message in a bottles for the actual wedding invitation, with passports full of information on Costa Rica, Manuel Antonio (the area we are staying), the main villa (Casa de la Brisas), other villas nearby, activities, etc. as well as boarding passes for the reply cards.
Got the idea from another BDW bride a while ago and am so excited to start planning. All I have to figure out now are the boxes...
Have you gotten an estimate on what shipping will be per invitation?
