    Does anyone know when you have to give your final headcount numbers to the resort?  I'm trying to get my invitations ordered, but need a reply by date.  Appreciate the help.

    Do you have a group rate for the hotel? If so then there's usually a date by when your group needs to be all paid up. I made my RSVP deadline a month before that. Hope that helps!

      I made my deadline approx. 3-4 months before the wedding date, just so I can start shopping for the OOT bag items, and start thinking about options at the resort (ie. paying extra for private dinner, the cost for the private poolside reception which is per person based).

      I did this same thing. My resort doesn't need a count until about 45 days before the wedding but I'm setting my RSVP date for 3 months prior to my wedding date so I can get things done myself. We might have some last minute people book but at least I'll have somewhat of a number so I can start buying things.


      62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

        Yeah, I'm just going to order maybe 5 extra of each thing, in case there are some last minute people who book. That way, at least I can get it out of the way since shipping can take awhile. You never know what could happen last minute with shipping and you don't get your stuff before the wedding. Oh gosh.. thinking about it is scary enough already.

              I only just had to give my headcount at the start of the month (so that would make it approx a month ahead of time) to the resort.

              However for US and budgeting/DIYing, etc. we asked for three months notice as to whether or not our guests would be joining us.   (The other thing is that if you do have a group with a TA, you kind of know way in advance who has paid up and who hasnt). If people were trying to do their own thing, we gave them the 3 month.
