I am including an RSVP card and travel info will be on the back side of the invite. The RSVP card will also list meal choices for our guest to choose. With that said, I know you just sent out the save the dates but I would send out the actual invites by February.
Hi Shannon, We were going to just send out our invitations but we didn't want people to sit on them for 8 months. Also, I used groupons for both STD and invitations so they were pretty cheap. I got a $300 groupon to spend $800 at delphinepress.com. But back to the plan, I am thinking of sending the invitations in March/April. What do you think? Also, I'm not sure if I should include an RSVP or info card.. I guess I will decided based on how many people uses our website to RSVP by then. Invitations for destination weddings are tough.. there's not much formality to them or set etiquette to follow. I feel that everyone just seems to do whatever works for them. My best friend is getting married in May and she also just sent out her STDs as well. I'm not sure if she will send out invitations.
