Any other 2014 brides here getting an early start?

Recommended Posts

What type of STDs are you sending out? I used a passport type. I did include website address but also TA info..resort info. .passport required. You can have multiple pgs for accommodation, travel, etc. If your doing boarding passes same info can be used..it would be fine whatever your sending to add an additional page with info and not have a website

I have a quick question for all you ladies. What, if any, info did you send with your save the dates? Any travel info or did you just give your wedding website? We really didn't want to do a wedding website, Would it be too awful to give the travel agent info on the back of the save the dates? Or put a page in the envelope with the save the dates? I really need some input here. Thanks!

I am in the process of sending out magnet save the dates that include several pictures, wedding date, wedding website, and location. To save money I'm going to VistaPrint to print out the travel agent information and mini travel details on an insert and send that out. I'm sending boarding pass invitations in September.

I decided a wedding website wouldn't be necessary for us. I didn't want to go crazy on my STDs so I'm sending a magnet with just our picture, name/location of resort and our wedding date. Thanks to this forum I found threads with great ideas on this. I borrowed the wording from a bride and will be including an insert along with the STD, here is what it says: Arrangements and accommodations should be made directly with (Travel Agency Name). In order to keep our group travel plans coordinated, we encourage you to contact (name of travel agent) at your earliest convenience for discounted pricing and availability. A minimal deposit can be placed to hold your flight and room. Prices include your room, all meals and airport transfers. We look forward to sharing this special day with you! (At the bottom I included address/phone/email of travel agency. Hope this helps! :)

I've done message in a bottle for my thank youffavors
Oh wow that's what I wanted to do I figured would be cute keepsake. .but nervous about guests keeping them in tact and bringing them home with. Thinkin maybe for AHR using them as the favors. So undecided. If not favors then maybe. Invitations although wanted to do boarding pass invitations. What do you ladies think?

I haven't sent my yet.. but I only plan on sending a little note with it that say "we finally picked a date. . . .(blah blah blah)  Brief details about the location (I have already told them Sandals in St. Lucia) so I will include the name of the resort we picked (since there are 3 sandals in St. Lucia) and the MUST stay days...  the actually STDs only have the wedding date on them but I'm asking everyone to stay 3 nights (Everyone has told me they plan on saying more nights so) so I will include the nights they have to be there for.

 

I will be following this up with an email with more info.  ie:  the TA's name and contact info - links to the sandals website and other misc. things I want to let them know at this point.

 

One of the packages I am sending out at a later date will be filled with info about St. Lucia and more specifics info about Sandals.

 

I do not plan on doing a wedding website - this may change who knows hahaha

I think boarding pass invites are really cute... but part of me feels bad that someone might think I sent them a real ticket until they realize what it is HAHA I am doing a message in a bottle attached to the favors. Most everything else that everyone will get will be the same message to everyone - because it will be general info that needs to be the same or things that I plan on using corny wording for .. so again all the same. So I am using the bottle messages as a way of giving each person a personal message. I will write the ones to my family and my FI to his. I will put a little sand in them from the beach once I get down there - I'll include that in the note in hopes that they keep it as a keepsake if they want. If not no biggy I guess. Favors for your AHR is cute! Maybe you can bring home some sand to put in them so then all your guest will have a piece of your wedding even if they couldn't make it to your destination :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
