Yay! So exciting! Your Save the Dates are DEF not going to be too late! We just sent our out in January because that's when we booked and were super excited I love the boarding pass invites and the passport ones as well!!! I had a very hard time deciding! We did something a little different with out save the dates and I'm leaning toward Passport invites.

Mock up of our Passport (Please don't judge, they are by no means finished )
We are having an at home reception as well and we aren't inviting everyone that will be invited to the At Home to the Destination Wedding. I think everyone understands if you say "We're just having an intimate wedding and then we plan to celebrate with everyone when we return" however, my fiance and I aren't really able to say that anymore since our "intimate" wedding in Punta Cana has turned into a rather large group We each have large families (family takes up nearly 150 of our guest list) We ended up with a guest list of around 200 but plan for more like 50-100 to attend. It's hard when our families are so large. Our guest list includes family, our bridal party and a few of our super close family friends but we will be inviting all the rest of our friends, parents friends, co-workers and such to our at home reception. Just remember to do what make you happy. People will understand!!!!!! It's your day
The beach is beautiful, not too rocky, but I did notice that depending on the time of year there's quite a bit of seaweed that washes to shore. They do their best to rake it up but they can't be doing that non stop. It wasn't that big of a deal to us though. You can walk along the shore all the way down because the resort isn't next to another one. It's pretty cool. When we visited we'd walk down the shore at sunset and loveddd it! Makes you almost feel like you are on a deserted island of sorts because there's no one around.
