Save the dates, invitations- for ceremony AND reception?

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to figure out what I should do about save the dates and invitations. 
I really like the luggage tag save the dates. I would be making around 30-40 of them most likely.  If I go this route...I would also need to do a STD for the at home reception for EVERYONE we are inviting...which will be around 250-300 people. 

Do I also need to do an invite to the ceremony, or can I put these two together on one? What would the wording be?

Then last but not least I would do regular invites for EVERYONE that would be coming to the reception at home. Is this going to be SUPER pricey or what? I guess the only addition to what it would normally cost would be the luggage tag STD's. I'm at a loss for what I should do, which templates and ideas to use for what. Any ideas, thoughts? I would GREATLY appreciate it! Thanks!

Hi J - Apologies but I haven't had my morning tea yet but are you trying to combine the wedding invitation with the STD? I would keep everything seperate: - STD: that would be one mailing. - destination invite: would be mailing #2 - home reception invite: mailing #3 If it isn't too close to your date "Raquelita" over on the newbie boards had a great suggestion to include interest/reply cards with the save the date to gauge how many people planned to come or were on the fence. Those would be the ones to get wedding invitations. Hope that helps.

Sorry that did end up being a jumbled mess. I am only going to send one or the other to the guests for the ceremony in Jamaica. We aren't asking everyone to go to the ceremony, so I am not sending out the same save the dates to everyone. So I need different save the dates and different invites for the at home reception, which would also go to the ceremony guests.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
