Question for you girls-

I am having my wedding in May 08, sending out STD's in Sept, and probably the official invite in January or Feb. Do you put an RSVP on STD's? If so, do you word it just like you would on an invite?

If you are sending your invite now, will you be sending anything else later?
we are sending an invite for the AHR later; much later! I actually don't even know when yet! Probably after we get back from Jamaica (AHR will be in July-ish; so 3 months after we get back)

we sent some reminder e-mails to the majority of our guests..with our website links and all the info all over again. It saved us on postage and such...

That's totally what we did. We made a collage of different shots of PV on the front, and a reminder to get their butts in gear on the back. It didn't work for everyone but it did get the ball rolling for some people.

With our magnet STDs we sent a letter explaining the events and directing them to our website to rsvp. We did say formal invites would come later but that since our wedding was in Mexico we needed to get a head count for our WC far in advance. We sent those in September and reminder postcards in November saying they had to rsvp by December. It worked pretty well. In April we sent the official invites for the June wedding to people who rsvp'd on the website. It saved money on invites too!

So I was all set to order postcards from Vista Print yesterday when my sister and my mom talked me out of it. Well not fully, but gave me a reason to hold off on ordering just yet. They said it isn't up to me when people book, what if they are just waiting for a deal to get a good price? They thought it would seem pushy. I don't want to seem pushy, I just want to know how to plan! How many people end up coming depend on how many upgrades we can do! So frustrating.

 

So as a compromise, I was thinking I could send the official invites in Jan-Feb instead of March with an offical rsvp (I wasn't going to do that before, cuz I figured my TA would give me the final count, but now I am finding people want to use their own TA's, which is fine.) This is driving me crazy. Cuz what if someone genuinely forgot? That doesn't give them much time to factor in the money.

 

Ya know what, I am going down the shore this weekend and I am NOT going to worry about wedding stuff at least until Monday. (We'll see about that, but I'm gonna try!)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
