Invitations...

Recommended Posts

I sent my invites out as soon as I had a wedding date. My wedding is November 30, 2013, all of my invitations have been sent out. Since my guests had to book and pay their first deposit before December 10 (to get a good deal $1299/inclusive), so I went ahead and sent out the invitations for people to book. Now, before the 2nd deposit is due (Feb 10) I will send a reminder (cute letter, info on the hotel etc...)

 

Then onto the OOT bags! LOL

I don't want to be redundant, but I need their RSVP card b/c it has their meal choice on there. What are my options? 

 

I would send them out anyway. That is what I am doing. 

 

Our save the dates went out in April or May, right after we finalized our date and resort. A couple of our invites have gone out, some more will at Christmas, and the rest in January (as we have seen people we have given them theirs; message in a bottle invites so we are trying to ship as few as possible). We pretty much know who is and is not going, and yes, some who said they would at first are not now that it is getting closer to deposit deadline time! 

 

But I love the invitations and would not dream of NOT doing them... and showing them off! Maybe treat it just as a reminder, or just the meal choice?

 

Up to you, but I would send them out anyway. :)

how early did you send out save-the-dates...I haven't been able to book the resort yet due to it being too early yet. I wanted to send out my save the dates so that it gives people enough time to save or make arrangements, to come. Should I wait to send them out till I book the resort...or just do it? Were not getting married till May 2014

We sent out save the dates a little over a year in advance

I would wait till you have the resort booked just in case something happens. As long as you have them out by May you should be fine. Why haven't you been able to book your resort yet? I was able to book mine about a year and a half before my weding date. If you really want to send them out without being officially booked, you could send out a very general STD with the month and year along with the general location (city/country) and put your website on it with "more information to follow" or something along those lines.

I did. I made them myself, but was waiting on getting the resort booked. We were able to book the week's trip first, but not the day itself until after. We are getting married in a small resort, off season, so I took a chance that would work out one day that week (preferably the date we wanted.)

So our STDs had our wedding week on them, instead of the specific date.

I have seen ones that just have month and location though; they seem to work fine. I would say wait, unless your group will have lots of people who need to book time off work way in advance.

 

And yes, it is frustrating because some people, like shannonmarie, are able to book way in advance... others have to wait until a year (or less!) away. And you just want to get the ball rolling!

I think i'm just going to take a chance on the date...cause I don't really care if thats not the exact date...but they people know that it will be within a few days of that.  Plus I'm going to wait for my invites till i hear from the resort about the date anyway, so I can just change it then i guess...

 

I'm so indecisive!!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
