Did anyone else do this? And if so, what did you do? Maybe like a post card or something cute?? I just want to remind people that they can contact her and put down a deposit and pay as they go instead of paying all at once!
I also received little response after my STD's went out. I waited until flights became available and then I emailed everyone on my guest list to remind them that its the best time to book because flights are usually the cheapest when they first come out. I got a few reservations after that email.
Then I sent another email about 2 months after with the increase in the flight cost to show them that its going to cost them more the longer they wait. In both emails I stated that they should put a deposit on the room to ensure the group rate.
It helped a little but I think most people will wait until the actual invitations are sent.
