Hoping you can give me some advice. I am getting married November 27, 2014 in the Mayan Riviera. When I first got engaged in May this year I thought I had so much time to plan everything and I wouldn't be stressed out. Not the case at all haha I started working on my save the dates and made them in that boarding pass style except they had more than one "boarding pass" each (I am having a separate religious wedding on a different date but I included that info on the save the date as well) The boarding passes included the dates, resort, a magnet with the dates and a little note from us. I also started shopping around for travel agents and getting group quotes, I was able to find a good deal but the TA told me the deposit of $200 CAD from all the guests is due December 3rd this year. I told her I hadn't even finished handing out my save the dates just yet and tried to see if I could push the deposit deadline a bit longer because I was hoping to give everyone more time, unfortunately the TA said this wasn't possible because we would lose that price and risk the new price being more expensive.
So I have been delivering all my save the dates and got most of them handed out, but now I do not know what to do about my formal invitations. Should I deliver them to people before the deposit deadline or is it okay to do it after? I was planning on putting them inside a glass bottle so it can be a message in the bottle invitation so they do require a bit of work but I think I could have them ready by beginning of November.
I am just worried that it might be too soon to deliver them considering a lot of people only got their save the dates a few days ago, but at the same time is there any point in delivering them after the deposit deadline?
FYI the save the dates have our TA agent info and booking info on them.
Please let me know what you guys think.
Thanks soooo much!!!!
