How to remind guests to book their room

Recommended Posts

I'm in a similar situation and timeline.  We just reduced from 20 to 11 rooms.  We sent out the STDs in October. A reminder email in February and Formal paper invitations with response cards (with postage paid!) in mid-March.  I'm suprised by the lack of responses thinking, for sure, a guest can drop a pre-paid response envelope in the mail.  I guess I was wrong!  So frustrating...

The resort I booked only had limited rooms on the adult only section so I let my guest know that there's only limited space left and BOOM everyone started booking lol so maybe a little pressure ?!

Shellyanderic, we found a vendor on ETSY for passport wedding invitations called AprilTwentyFive. They are really nice and we think we are going to use them. We were going to try a DIY passport wedding invitation but my FI surprised my with samples and they look fantastic. You should check them out.
Shelly also check out Allurements by Rebecca. She is on etsy and is very on the ball.She is doing my passport invites!!!!
Thanks for the vendor suggestions. We decided to work with Allurements by Rebecca. She has been very quick and professional and we would highly recommend her for anyone looking for great looking passport invites. We just approved the final versions and they should be printed and sent to us within a week or so. We'll post photos of them once they arrive! :) We gave out our Save-the-Date's in October of 2012, and are mailing out our invites as soon as we get them, so everyone will have them by mid April with a July 15th RSVP. We figured that's enough time since our wedding is on November 15th. Hopefully everyone will be prompt and get right on booking, so we don't have any room deposit headaches, but judging from what everyone's saying, maybe we should expect a bit of last minute bookers.

I feel like people, at first, were so against my wedding, because it was so far, then they looked into it & were all for it! Now, 4 months away they're like "ohh I can't" "it's too expensive" yes i know how much it is, however you've had well over a year, plus some, & most of these people work in the food industry, where they can pick up extra shifts, do doubles, or stay later & make that quick cash. Some could babysit like they did before, so could work the OT at the hospital, some could get a 2nd job because they hardly work now! ugh it's so frustrating. especially because we put a huge chunk of change down for the room deposit & if we don't get the minimum we need, then everyone gets screwed with this discount!

I will be sending out Save the dates with all our resort/booking info this month. Hopefully everyone will be easy! But we also gave everyone more than year ahead to plan telling them verbally And sending our STD out a year ahead - which I agree is more than enough time to save :D

For my recent cousin's wedding, he ended up having to call most family members and get their yes/nos/bookings over the phone because no one sent back the RSVPs.

 

For that reason, I'm dreading handling RSVPs for mine. My family is the worst -- every vacation we have, me and my FI book way in advance, and then when everyone else eventually books their tickets, they're surprised how everything "suddenly" got so expensive. Every time.

 

I'm hoping a TA will be able to help with some of that, but I'm also considering just booking rooms on the cruise for certain family members because I don't want to leave it up to chance!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
