<<She didn't like the idea I was giving guests two hotel choices, but I want them to decide if they want a budget hotel or a nicer one. >>
I think that's a really good idea. We encouraged everyone to stay with us (our contract sort of dictated that, actually) but were lucky enough that the the hotel next door was cheaper so people could stay there and still easily be a part of all of the festivities. That being said, only one person stayed there, but it was good to have the option.
<<She told me not to worry about the std's because they send you a pdf one with all the informationa bout the resort, the island, and everything they need to know>>
I liked doing my own. I didn't put any info on my Save the Date other than the dates (we had a home reception too) and the fact that the wedding would be in the Bahamas. I hadn't decided where I was doing everything yet at that point, but I wanted to be sure people blocked off the dates and had enough time to save money if necessary. I just did postcards, also from VistaPrint, and they looked like this:
<<I plan to copy and paste it on to my passport style info booklet>>
Yeah, for sure! Passport booklets are totally awesome, I wish I had been able to do them. I went more traditional though, just because it was easier on me.

A few of my guests got some reaaaalllllly good deals through BookIt.com. You may want to tell yours to add that site to their list of places to search.
<<Did you post your stationary on here? I wanna see!>>
I didn't, but here it is:
These are obviously not to scale I sent them in white pocket folds with yellow satin ribbon as belly bands.
<<No day is perfect! You married your love so it was amazing!>>
This is absolutely true. And the fact that it was a destination wedding where everyone got to vacation together was really awesome. I wouldn't change that aspect for anything.
<<so when they announced cars were being towed most people left and didn't come back- before we got through dinner) and I told everyone if something like that happens on my day I will be pissed and I will not get over it! So I understand how you feel >>
Oh my gosh I would have freaked!!! A ringing endorsement for taking automobile travel out of the equation, if I've ever heard one!
<<She promised I would have information by the end of next week so all I can do is wait. Patiently >>
I'll be really interested to see what she comes up with!
