      J-Me,

       

      We sent out invites to all of our guests that we sent STD's too even if they said no at that time.  #1.  We didn't want anyone to feel excluded #2. The invites are special to us and the people are special so *we* wanted to include everyone and #3. They will be more apt to still feel like a part of your day even though they can't actually be there.

Yay!' type thing).

       

      So after sending STDs, I hear that it's best to send invites to just the people you know are coming and not send one to those you know aren't coming (I like this idea too - not to sound cheap, but it saves time & $ too). So if I haven't heard a solid 'no' from anyone yet, should I just order the same quantity as what I mailed for my STDs? Or should I panic because no one's booked yet? Haha I guess I was naive thinking ppl would book as soon as they received the STDs...

       

      Any advice is MUCH appreciated :) not sure why I'm worried!

          Even though a lot of his family has young kids and we anticipated would say no, the responses we are getting on the reply cards is amazing.  Even though there are a lot of "no" responses most everyone leaves us special note thanking us for including them and commenting on our invites.  So that makes the effort worth it 100%

            How are the invites going? I cant wait to see them after they come in how many did you finally decide on?


            Two hands will join together on their special day and look at each other and say I DO on April 14 2012 in Montego Bay Jamaica

              I can officially say I'm a APRIL 2012 Bride. 

               

              I'm staying at the Gran Bahia Principe Runaway Bay from April 14th - 21st 2012

               

              I'm getting married off resort (Tropical Weddings Jamaica) at Fire Fly in Port Maria. Hill top that overlooks the ocean.

              Wedding date is April 17th 2012. I haven't confirmed time yet.

               

              So far I've bought the dress and booked the photographer. Now I can do the fun stuff now with my maid of honour.
