I'm having a hard time deciding on invites myself. I really, really love letterpress, but not sure I want to spend the $$$ to go that route. I've found a layered look with handmade paper that I also like. So I'm completely undecided.
We have a TA who did a group booking for us. It still wasn't easy, but I can't imagine trying to get a bunch of people to book without a TA, unless it's a really small group. Plus we got a pretty nice discount on both the rooms and then our private event, and some amenities for having the group.
My advice is to go with a group booking, but get a general idea of the stay ahead of time, the dates and the amount of the deposit. Then you can have people call in to reserve & place their deposits, get your semi-final #, and have your TA book the group. We had to do this within about 2 weeks, which was why we ended up with electronic save-the-dates vs. the paper ones I wanted.

I picked up my dress on Friday, and fell in love with it all over again. Those sneaky girls at the salon put this killer vintage fabric flower sash on me when I tried on the dress - it was AMAZING. and $500...so needless to say it didn't get ordered. I've been scouring etsy to try to find something similar. I am also considering taking a stab at DIY - I have a friend who makes lovely fabric and ribbon flowers, and she can give me plenty of tips. I also ordered 1 pair of shoes (aqua patent leather wedge flip flops from lands end of all places). And am scooping up some orange sashes & table runners from another BDW bride.
Now I get to go back to trying to figure out the @*(&$#@*( invites.
