Hey ladies and congrats!!! I had originally posted this under the invitation forum, but got no responses... So I'm tying it out with my fellow newbies!!! Let me know what you think please!!!

My fiancee and I are really thinking of NOT doing formal invitations for our wedding.... We really do not want to have the extra cost.... We created a wedding FB page and plan on doing facebook invites.... We do not expect a large turn out and don't think it's necessary to do the formal invites when everyone has a FB these days....

We sent out save the dates which had the facebook page link on it....

What are your thoughts on this ladies???

They look good, but I don't get the second photo. It says we (mustache) you to shave the date. But it doesn't say ask in there. I didn't know if the mustache represents something and I am just not getting it lol!


Oh is it suppose to be we "must ask you"?


Sorry sometimes these things take me a little while to get lol!

We're not doing formal invitations. Desintation weddings can be as casual or formal as you want so I don't think there is really an "etiquette." We're just sending save the dates to those invited to the destination wedding and on the save the date there is our website url they can go to for more info. We plan on sending out annoucements with a pic from our wedding inviting people to our at-home recepetion. I believe our save the dates were about $48 for 30 (it would have actually been cheaper but I accidently ordered 5x7 and not 4x6 postcards)....I ordered them on Zazzle.com.

    are there really any "Musts"?!?!?

    I think the beauty of individual weddings is exactly that...reflects everyones' individuality :)

    In my opinion, it's more important to be true to yourself, than try to follow whatever "society-norms" are in vogue at the moment....but that's just me - hehe :)

     

    Hope all your weddings are exactly what You envision.....or even better, be yourselves and you'll rock -  wedding couples!!!

    Nothing is a must when you're planning a destination wedding that isn't traditional. Do what feels right. We are sending formal invites out because our family has requested them but I was on the fence.
