      Hi ladies! 

       

      We are getting married October 5 at Dreams Resort in Punta Cana, DR.  I have a few things done, as I have my OOT bags and most of the contents.  I am going dress shopping next month, so we'll see how that goes.  

       

      Look forward to planning with all of you brides!

          I actually have no idea how many guests are coming..lol.  Based on the people that have said they are coming i'm thinking between 25-30.  So I'm planning for 30, but no one is really counted until they are paid in full :-).

              or 15 bags, one for each couple?

               

              When are you guys sending out invites? We have all of the details for our invites now and I just need to tell them that I want them printed.  We already did a save the date a year out, but i've heard of people doing invites 5 or 6 months out? I know there will be people booking through other sites (we used destinationweddings.com) because they THINK they can get better deals so I'll need to get their RSVP.  Thus, the invites are really only for RSVP purposes.  Most of the people who I know are coming have already put down their deposit through our site.

                I don't think it's too early to send the actual invite if you have all the info! People will surely appreciate the extra time to pay for their trip. We are sending our save the dates next week...we don't have all the info yet for flights, etc....still working on that! But, a lot of our family and friends already know the dates and have started budgetting accordingly. I am thinking our actual invites will go out 6 months before. Also, we have a website that we'll include on our save the date for people to be aware of all the developments!

                  I am planning 1 per couple, but have a few extras because there should be a few single people as well.  

                   

                  As for the invites, I plan to send ours out mid April.so it's about 5 1/2 mos out from the wedding date, but only 3 months out from the deadline to book in the group booking.

                    how long will you give them to RSVP ?

                     

                    I was thinking of sending them mid-March (only because I don't want to wait too long to get new quotes from TA) but I don't know how long to give them to respond. I don't want to give them too long, because they are going to forget about it.. lol

                     

                    The ultimate deadline for me to know exactly the number of guest is end of July , since I plan on ordering all my goodies and stuff at that time to give me enough time for shipments coming from China etc.

                      Ok, i think we're all on the same page.  I'm going to mail mine April 1st and have an RSVP by May 31st.
