I THINK I MAY BE CRAZY, please please be honest!!!!
...but I am sending out my boarding pass invitations hopefully tomorrow/Monday. Our wedding is not until next April 2, 2013. Although I just booked the resort & the block of rooms last week, many friends have known since last summer that we were planning a DW in April 2013 and that it would be dependent upon the Easter School Break). Some of us usually vacation together to the Caribbean in the Spring - so this was something "out there & in the works" per say.
We sent out an informal STD via evites.com earlier this week indicating that a formal invitation was to follow soon and we included the link to our wedding website for more details. On the evite I indicated there was no RSVP necessary at this moment - it was just FYI only....well the feedback has been amazing! Many yes' & maybe's.
My thought is, since we already know that a lot of our friends & family wish to join us, and they will book right away, why not send the invite?? Those who are planning on it will react right away (book/return RSVP card). It then gives the maybe's & the no's time to think about it, possibly save, think of ways to make it happen.....My Boarding Pass invites are 5 pages and the last page is a RSVP card they can detach and mail back - I gave them until Jan 2, 2013....it's fun and something they have never seen before and hopefully not something they would forget about (as far as RSVP'ing).
I guess time will tell....it will be interesting to see....maybe send we can send an evite reminder in the fall about the RSVP, in case some tuck it away???? Any thoughts??
Again, I may be nuts, but since I've been working on these invites for 3 1/2 months, I really want them OUT so I can relax and do some more fun DIY projects and planning!!
Thanks for listening/reading - any feedback welcome!
