Invite Etiquette Help!

Recommended Posts

jaykay - I like your method best. my FI and I were just going over the list of people who we've sent STDs to and there are some we're just not in contact with any longer and who have been AWOL (mainly his band friends post-the band splitting up). last night, he said, "I don't even really know them." and I agreed. I'm sure that happens a lot in weddings, but we're assembling the people in the world who are closest to us in Mexico, and seems like it would be a bit odd to have other people there, too. I've always had a, 'the more the merrier' attitude, and if these people did want to come, that's totally ok with me. but I think if you receive even a STD (we included our wedding website which has an informal RSVP) and we haven't seen you in some time, it's only polite to get in touch and say you're coming.


all in all, I'm with jaykay, I think family and the people we've discussed the trip in detail with (even if they're on the fence) deserve an invite. for the others we've lost contact with, I don't know if I'll go through the time and expense to send them one.

oh, I should mention we're not asking for gifts either, but this makes me think... maybe for those who can't attend/didn't respond, we'll will send out an invite, but we'll also include an enclosure about where we're registered in case they'd like to send something in their absence. something along the lines of, 'for those who cannot attend but would like to send a [token of appreciation], the bride and groom are registered at XXX.'


hee bridezilla. ; )

So what do you guys think about inviting your TA to the wedding? My TA is my sister's friend's long time boyfriend.  My sister isn't super close to this girl but they have known each other since high school. Let's just say if this was a hometown wedding I won't be inviting them.  However, The TA has been great and he travels all the time...I think they probably get free stuff or whatever. So anyways our wedding moto has been the more the merrier. So I figured why not as a nice gesture. But I don't want my TA to think I'm weird or rude. I am just trying to say..."hey if you feel like taking a trip to punta cana in April come join our wedding" haha What do you guys think?

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
