I have no idea how many people are coming! But I guess if people are going to make it to a DW they will be good about letting you know? I too like the idea of a postcard "reminder", good idea!
Is anyone including any info with the formal invites, or just the invitation and response card?

My STD have our wedding website info (as will our invitations) so I am not adding any additional information to the invitations themselves. FI and I are going to try to organize transportation for our guests, but we won't have that finalized until Feb when we know everyone's flight info... that means we will probably provide info about that in our "cant wait to see you" letter a couple of weeks before the wedding

I just ordered my STDs so depending on when I get everything and put them together I will send them out. Hopefully, before the end of October. Our wedding is 11-7-08 so that will give everyone a year if not a little longer to save $$$.

I sent my STDs out in early July for our wedding next August. I wanted everyone to have as much time as possible to save up if they wanted to join us. I plan to send formal invitations asking for an RSVP sometime in April. I included the TA and accomodation info in our STD package and so fare we have almost 40 people booked already!

I sent out my STDs in June for next May's wedding. We have had 62 people book and pay deposits so far. I plan on sending out my invitations just as a formality probably in February.

I just sent my STD last week for a June 2008 wedding, directing guests to our website where they can RSVP (by 11/15). I plan on sending the invitations by end of January. By that time, the invitation will just be a formality because hopefully those that will be attending have already booked their travel and RSVP'ed.

 

To estimate my rough guests count, I've verbally asked my closed families and friends who will be able to make it.

Well, we've decided to send out the STD's late January-early February. Thats a little over a year early (fourteen months), but we come from simple folk who don't have thousands sitting in the bank to hop a plane. The majority of our guests will need the time to save and get the time off work approved. Add the complication of passports, and we really think its best to send them as early as feasible.

 

We are going to do reminder postcards. I'm going to start buying different post cards with beach photos (y'all know the ones..those cards that make you wanna climb in the pic? haha) and we'll send those out periodically with little blurbs like "7 months til the wedding. How's that passport coming along?" and include (again) the info for where they can start the process for it.

 

Hopefully people will think its cute as long as we don't overdue it with the reminding. lol

    • 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.
