How do I word my destination wedding "save the dates?" ***HELP***

Recommended Posts

I will be sending out save the dates the end of this month for our destination wedding, I would really like for guest to RSVP via our website by a specific date before we have the formal invitations printed, I really don't want to waste money on inviations I may not need.

what would be the best way to word this on the "Save the dates?"

Oh excellent question!!! I was wondering this too; I am worried because I was going to say "invitation to follow", but I only want to send invitations to people who sound like they will at least MAYBE be coming...

We just got the save the date postcards we designed back from the printer today!  Yay!!! I struggled with the wording as well, but including the following underneath the announcement and other info.  I hope it helps :)

 

"To RSVP and for more information, please visit:  www.enter_your_wedding_website_here.com

 

Formal invitations to follow

Please RSVP online to receive yours!"

I never thought about just send the actual invitation to people who are going to or maybe coming.. Has anyone else done this? I just figured I had to send them to everybody... Feedback would be greatly appreciated!!

Wendy & Skygirl,

 

Those are some good ideas, I may do that, I just thought it would be a waste to send out 50 extra invitations to those who will most likely not be able to make it, especially when inviations could cost $3.00-7.00 a piece.

 

It would be very helpful for them to at least reply through our website.

Miss Nisha, i would deff. do something like this, If you know that a lot of ppl will not be attentding, so save a tree. Thats how i look at it. And this days everyone is very computer sawy. And by you saying rsvp online to get yours doesnt make it look cheesy. Espesially if you DIY invites 20+extra invites for ppl that are not coming is a waste, plus the stamp, both ways...good luck

Hey this is a great idea! A lot of my family is not computer-savvy ("What on earth is a wedding website?" I was asked), but I will be able to tell whether those specific people are coming or not anyway. Maybe say something like 

Invitation to follow, please RSVP by ___________ at (our wedding website) or call _______________ to receive yours. 

 

Or maybe just leave it at wedding website and instruct my parents to speak to those specific people? What do you think?

IDK, I keep going back on this idea. What keeps coming to me is I don't want to come off rude by not sending an invite so cetain people. It was my choice to have a destination wedding... If I was having a wedding at home I would send invites to everybody so why am I not going to now??

 

I just don't want people to think it is rude of me...

I totally see what you mean by saying you dont want to be rude, but again to me it is a waste to sent invites for ppl that rsvp on the website and that are not coming. This invites will end up in the trash. But again it is just me...

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
