    I've been working on these for a while but I've been stalling sending them since I still don't have a confirmed date yet. But I finally just decided to send them anyways with a tentative date on them. Our immediate families will be attending, so it was more just to offer them the three nights, and then I sent about four other letters for close friends we would like there if they can make it on their own. I also did a spanish version for my parents and included some casual engagement pictures for them and my sisters since they still haven't seen my e-ring.
    The details: (should've taken a pic of the actual finished product, but I was ready to get them mailed out)
    I printed on light blue plain paper folded in half to fit into a matching blue envelope and added an "important information" enclosure printed on white cardstock.
    They turned out a little more casual than I wanted but they're done and in the mail.

      Oh, I love the header on the letters! That's so cute! It sure is nice to check something off of the list (tentative or not), isn't it??

      I love the letter! Is it ok if I borrow part of it? I think you did a wonderful job and captured a lot of the things I was trying to say!

          Sure, I'm glad you like it and found it useful. I love sharing and borrowing
          I actually based it off of one I found online doing a random google search on STD letters.

            This is what I sent out for mine:

            (Our Names)
            Invite you to join them in presence or in thought
            As they become husband and wife….

            Where?Paradisus Riviera Cancun Resort, Riviera Maya, Mexico
            Paradisus Riviera Cancun Resort|Mexico Resorts|Cancun Vacations

            When?Thursday, November 8th, 2007

            Why a destination?
            We've decided to combine our wedding and our honeymoon to have an intimate and memorable wedding in Mexico's Riviera Maya this November! We understand that this is not a traditional wedding and it will not be feasible for many to attend. Please know that whether you attend in presence or in thought, we are grateful to share our happiness with you. We've planned an all-inclusive vacation from November 4 to November 11 at the Paradisus Riviera Cancun Resort. The wedding will take place on the evening of November 8 and will be a casual affair on the beach, with the sunset behind us.

            Passports:Passports are required to travel to Mexico! If you are planning on attending and do not have one already, please leave yourself plenty of time to obtain one.
            Visit the following: Passport Home

            RSVP:If possible, please RSVP within the next 4 weeks. When you book, a deposit of $150 per person for accommodations is required; as well as the cost of airfare. Final payments will be due 60 days prior to your departure.

            How?Contact our travel agent, (travel agent name).
            She will be happy to accommodate you.
            Phone: (Travel agent #)
