Hi Everyone!
So I have officially booked my wedding at Grand Sirenis Rivera Maya for January 2017. I made my own STD and emailed them out to all my guests. Deposits are due beginning of April and it was my thought that once I find out who is officially coming I will only send those people a formal invitation as a cost saving measure as I'm on a tight budget. So my question is do I really need RSVP if I already know these people are coming? What have you done for your wedding? Any advice is appreciated.

We sent email STDs and then sent formal invitations later. We did send the invitations to everyone, as we felt like some people would like to receive paper invitations (like grandmas, etc.) and there were also still people who weren't sure if they were going to come (even though our deposit deadline had passed). I put an RSVP date on it, but I didn't include RSVP cards at all. I directed everyone to our wedding web site which had an RSVP form on it. A lot of people still never replied either way. Given that our wedding is a month away, I'm assuming if I haven't heard from them, they are not coming!

If you only send them to people who've put a deposit down then no RSVP is needed. If they back out your TA will know and advise you.

That said I personally would send an invitation to everyone because as said above some people are unsure early on or some people want to book outside your party and this gives them the opportunity to be reminded and have the info. So if you did this yes an RSVP date is needed.

I used a free wedding website that people used to RSVP to save on mailing stamps and the like. If you want it done by mail then you'd have to include the card. Good luck

Thanks Ladies for the advice! I sent out just under 200 STD due to my parents having large extended families. I grew up having relationships with all my aunties, uncles and cousins so I didn't want anybody to feel left out. In saying that I only estimate btwn 20-30 people will actually book so that's why I thought I would only send to those I knew were coming. I never thought of people who might book later or outside of our party.
