I'm doing a destination wedding in Dominican Republic, followed by a reception at home the week after.
Everyone is invited to my wedding and then invited to the reception as I know it will be difficult for most to attend the wedding and I don't like inviting some people to one and not the other kind of thing.

Anyways, as far as invitations go - would I put information for both on the same invitation?
Would I have a RSVP card that indicates both and have them check off which they are attending? (Both, one or the other, neither kind of thing).

The RSVP is what I'm unsure about too...
My wedding is in November but my WC in Dominican needs a guest list in August to ensure everyone is staying in the same building kind of thing. Payment for my group rate has to be made in September anyways.
So I was going to send out the invitations in early May, have them RSVP for mid-June...

Will that work, not work?

I think that would work.  Perhaps an online thing may be easier for RSVP (so things can be easily changed and updated), but I understand if you want to do them that way.

Thanks!  The only reason I'm not doing an online RSVP thing is because a lot of people invited are "old school" Italians in my family and I'm not sure that most of them even have a computer let alone any experience with the internet! LOL

I have the same issue! We are doing March wedding in Cancun and a reception in April in MI (where his family lives - old school Italians). We are sending 1 invite that includes Cancun on the main invitation and a separate "Reception" card with the info for the MI reception.

 

I'm stuck how to word the RSVP card myself. How did you do it? I'm also trying to figure out how to word the "Accommodation" card with the resort info and how to book.

I'm looking at sending DW invitations out and then sending AHR invitations out after that...

I started a new thread re: this issue if any of you ladies are interested!

I didn't my DW invitations this week...

I wish I could post a pic but for some reason the site won't let me "insert image" or attach a file.

 

I really wanted to share! :o(

Here is my wedding invitation.

I decided NOT to include anything about an at-home reception.  Two reasons - 1) I thought it was going to start to get confusing especially since the AHR isn't until November either and things can change and 2) we didn't want people to automatically dismiss the idea of coming to the DW because they thought they could wait until the AHR.  That may sound selfish of us but I just know how people can be about these things and my dream wedding is my DW not my AHR, you know?

Pretty invites!  I like the classy simplicity of them.  I agree on your choosing to send a different invitation to the AHR.  It isn't even selfish, the AHR just isn't the wedding!!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
