    McLecker, we decided to only send invites to those who are definitely or most likely planning to attend. We included the main invite and a schedule of events (highlighting events that are hosted so guests can better plan). Of course, all of this information is also on our website, so the mailed invite was not entirely necessary... just a formality that a lot of people like and that some generations consider a must :-). If you can save money and not offend anyone, I say awesome!

      These are nice! I was also considering something like this that we could put up: http://www.etsy.com/listing/83520935/quaker-marriage-print-grape-vines.

      I just feel like all my friends who have guest books just have them sitting away in drawers. These could be up as reminders of our big day. thoughts?

        I love the luggage idea and was going to do that myself so it was a favor/seating card in one!  Where did you find them at?  flip flops are a darling idea.  I saw it on Michaels.com website but it didn't have a price attached...

             Ahh gotcha. Fair enough. We are up to 60 people booked now (double what we expected) so there is no budget for invites. Hope the older guests aren't offended..... I don't want to be tacky  but I do need to feed them when they get there... :)

              Not tacky at all! I feel like a lot of paper things are becoming obsolete with technology, and if people have already booked, then they don't need anything extra printed!

               

              Woo-hoo for 60 friends and fam to celebrate you two!

                Haha- we're in the same boat- my 2nd dress (TTD dress) should be in in the end of Sept and I've had my wedding dress since March! :)
