    Did you by any chance create a private Facebook group for your guests? I created one for my wedding and it really did help engage people otherwise didn't have RSVP'ing high on the priority list. I tried to make it engaging by doing things like asking what people's favorite songs were (and then incorporating them in my master list which I gave to the DJ). It made it even more fun when people heard their exact favorite songs being played at the reception.

     

    Good luck!

          Hi ladies,

           

          This is something that many brides go through! It is probably the most stressful part of the destination wedding planning. Everyone is giving great advice here as many guests do wait until the very last minute to book. We like to send out reminder emails with a deadline and remind everyone of what it means to the bride and groom. Rest assured that your guests will definitely begin to book! A friendly nudge never hurts ;)

            Hey Nikki, you are probably still away but how did things work out with the last minute bookers????

            Don't get too worried though, the people who really want to come are going to be there!!  :)

              I think a Facebook group is a good idea.  You wouldn't think of that as a tool for a traditional wedding but that's a good idea!

                I do believe 7-8 months is fairly early to start panicking.  My travel agent gave Nov 30, as a deadline for a down payment.  I am not expecting a lot of ppl but I will use that to gage how many ppl I should expect.  Happy planning ladiessss! :)

                    I was stressing over the exact thing a month ago - and still am to an extent! Our wedding is end of April 2012 and we sent out our save the dates in June as soon as we put our deposits down on the trip and reserved 35 spots (which was the max we could reserve at a time). I was hoping that most of the people who had verbally confirmed would put their deposits down ASAP as it was only $150/person...the deadline for full payment was October 20th for the early booking discount and on October 15th we had us, our siblings, parents and one bridesmaid booked... on October 20th we ended up with 35... so many people booked in those last 5 days I couldn't believe it! Alot of people called our TA late and are planning on booking in the next few months, as there is still plenty of time!
