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!

    • So long story short I want to have my wedding in Jamaica in December. However, it's booked up. So next option is Cancun. I am going to be doing a Tamil Sri Lankan South Asian wedding. I want a 5 star hotel.  I was set on Royalton as that is where I always go and love it. However, it seems really pricy for the wedding. I am looking to have 30-40 people.  I want to spend the least amount of money ... Doesn't everyone!  I want to know what 5 star chain or resort provides the best deals for weddings? I would love to know about Moon Palace( I can't get a hold of anyone!)  If there are any other ones please let me know!  
    • I want to testify to the glory of Lord Masuka, the spell caster that helped me restored my marriage. It all started when my husband came back home acting weird for no reason, I tried to find out what was going on but he refused talking to me for days, he woke up one morning and say to me that he needs a break and he left without any clue where he's going, I was so shocked and devastated because I have done nothing wrong to him other than being a supporting wife, I cried all day, one fateful evening I saw series of comments on how Lord Masuka had restored collapsed marriages, so I decided to give him a try. He assured me that all hope are not lost yet, I followed the instructions he gave me and to my greatest surprise my husband who had left me for  months without a call came to my work place and begged for forgiveness, now we are happy family because of Lord Masuka. To as many of you having issues in your relationship, marriages Lord Masuka is the answer to your problem, contact him today via email lordmasukaspelltemple@hotmail.com or WhatsApp him +1(234)-307-0752.

    • You are definitely not alone in this I am sure!  As much as you want all of your friends and family there, DWs can be tough for a lot of people to make.  Some for financial reasons and others because they have a weird chip on their shoulder about you having one.  It sucks initially but you aren't getting married for them!  And for all of the people who make it, you will create an even stronger bond.  I hope it gets better and please keep us posted!
