    My fiance and I just got engaged a week ago. We are having a small wedding in Puerto Plata... (It's our 2nd for each of us.) We have to reserve the Villas and pay to do so. Therefore, we had to verbally ask those who are being invited and (unfortunately) explain that they will need to pay for a small portion of their stay upfront as required by the resort. So we will already know who is coming... Can I still send official invitations? I don't like the informality of only 'asking'. Thoughts?? :unsure:

    We are doing our invites early for this reason and didn't bother with save the dates since we verbally told those we want there the dates.... Then we are using our interactive website for all RSVP and detail info.

      Absolutely a written invitation is the best way to go - it's not only the polite thing to do to follow up an important verbal request with a written notification of same, it also enables (and requires) the invited guests to send a written RSVP so that you have a confirmed acceptance in writing.

      I did the same - we already have everyone booked as they paid their deposits for the hotel and flight

       

      We are sending an invite that will direct everyone to respond to our website for food choices, song requests, further info, etc.

      Even though we already know they are coming!

      We're sending invitations even to those that already told us that they will not go. I think the rule of thumb is, if you were planning on inviting them, you should give them an invite. Some people really like to keep invitations even if they can't go.

      I'm also hoping some that have told me they might not go will change their mind with an invite.. doubtful but ya never know! haha

      @jayejayelynn You never know! Just as circumstances change and people cancel, some might decide to come last minute
