Hi everyone!

 

I need some help!

 

Due to a crazy busy schedule I did not send out printed STD's - I did however send an email with our wedding website.

 

The website included EVERYTHING guests needed to know in order to book through Sunwing! This was 5 months ago.

 

51 guests put their $150 deposits down - and they all know that their remaining balance is due September 27th, 2014.

 

We're getting married November 18th, 2014.

 

I'm just wondering if there are any ladies out there that still sent out invitations EVEN THOUGH you already knew who was coming based on their deposit??

 

I mean I already know all 51 guests are coming! There might be drop offs of course and just yesterday I had an addition (cousins new girlfriend) BUT does it make sense to send formal invitations to these people?

 

I don't want to miss out on sending formal invitations only because it's a once in a lifetime thing!

 

But I also think people will think it's silly to receive a formal invite when they know I know they've already booked!

 

Any thoughts out there?

 

I would really appreciate your insight!

 

Hope this makes sense!

 

Thank you ladies!

 

<3


Happy Planning Future Brides!

Love, Mrs. Gedney! <3

This is a good question.

 

When I reserved my spot with the airline, I then made up my invites and sent them out, this directed them to our wedding website for all the info.

 

I didn't do any STD stuff, or pre-emailing of the website.

 

Since it is your wedding and you do want to have that invite done up - I would send it, and maybe use that opportunity to remind people that their full payment is due in September.

 

Just a thought.

    Good question. I didn't do STD or invites. It is a small wedding with only family attending. When I see all the cute ideas on here it makes me want to send invitations!!

    I did boarding pass invites/stds that directed people to book and to our website... And am not planning on doing a formal invitation... BUT I am doing passports sent out to everyone who books, about 2 months before the wedding that details the plans of the wedding week and acts as an Invite/program/welcome letter.

      We send save the dates forever ago but have just decided to send formal invites. We have a handful of ppl who haven't booked (some that we know are coming) but we also are doing a meal option and need ppl to choose - it's going to be done on our website, and I'm sure we could just send an email but opted to go with the formality.

        I opted for the upgraded version and paid... But well worth it. It takes time formatting- but i think it will look awesome when done!
