STD and Invite Info

Recommended Posts

Hey all!

 

Planning a Beaches T&C Wedding for 01/2012.  Kinda confused about what to do about STD and invites...

 

-I kinda of want to send STD to everyone on my list with a formal invite/info package to follow. Do you guys think it is wierd to ask for a reply in the STD? Even if it is yes, no, maybe?  My thinking is that this would give me a better idea of a head count, and i would know who to send real invites/info packages which would be more fancy (passports)??

 

What did you guys do? I want to send them out in 01/2011 to give people time to save $$$.....Thoughts please!!!

I've read a lot of brides on here send out their STDs with an RSVP just to get an idea of who may be coming, I think a yes, no and maybe is good. Just so youcan start to get a better idea of who may or may not come

Thanks! My TA does a website for us, so im a going to see if an RSVP is something included on it. With some clever wording on the STD, I think this may be okay!

Thats what I did, I sent a RVSP with std with a yes, no or maybe option.  Just start getting some of them back. I doubt everyone will send one back. But I wanted a general idea of might like to join us

I think that is what i am going to do...I would rather spend less money on the STD and invest more in the actual invite that has more info in for people who are serious about coming. Do you have a pic of your STD? I would love to see it?

We sent our STD's a year in advance, and on the STD we put:

 

"Formal invitations will be sent to those who RSVP online"

 

This allows people who intend to come to RSVP yes, those who won't RSVP no, and the maybe's don't RSVP at all.........

 

I made the website as informative as possible, and attached that info on the STD. This gives a rough head count, but we'll have to send reminder emails to all our non repliers around the 6 month mark I think. This was so I didn't go to the effort of making a heap of formal invites when only 1/3 might actually attend. My intention is too only send formal invites to those who have booked flights.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
