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

    • 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.
