Hello all!

We have recently started planning our destination wedding for April 2017. We have been talking to a travel agent and we have decided on Sandos Caracol Eco Resort. We are going today to get all the information on pricing and deposits and such. My question is because the wedding is in 9 months and we're going to need deposits sooner then later is it better to send invitations now with all the info since we will have it or should I just send save the dates? I'm going to want to give the travel agents name and phone number and the dates and hotel. Has anyone done save the dates with your wedding website on it then on the website put the travel agents info and give all the information you have on that?

We sent out save the dates about 10 months out with our wedding website link. All the travel info was on our website before we sent them out. Some guests did start contacting the travel agent early on, and some waited until the last minute. we sent the invitations out a little more than 3 months in advance and put the RSVP date as the same date that the travel agent required all reservations to be made (2 months out). We gave guests about 5 weeks to RSVP and we didn't get them all back (even from people who came). I would worry that if you send the invitations out too far in advance, people will forget to RSVP.

Hi @@AliciaW,

My wedding is in April 2017 and I sent my save the dates out last month. I did a passport save the date so I was able to give my guests all the information up front and provided my wedding website on the STDs as well. My travel agent's deadline is the end of January so I am planning on sending my invites out in November with an RSVP date early January. So far I've had a few people contact my travel agent but no one has put down their deposit yet, hopefully someone will soon. 

But I agree with DLW0409, if you send your invites out too early people will probably forget to RSVP.

Thank you @@DLW0409 and @@tiffanyt

I think I'm understanding a little more how it works now. I just need to get the deadline from my travel agent and once I have that I know I should send out my invitations a couple months before the deadline. I was feeling very confused about all this save the date and invitation business but I think I get it now.

Are you supposed to put an rsvp in the save the date? Or just in the invitation?

@@AliciaW I put the RSVP on my site not on the save the date, but I plan on putting it on my invitation as well

As most of my guests need time to save so that they are able to join us I am sending out my save the dates right away.  This gives everyone a heads up about what to plan for and can give them an idea of how much to save.  Everyone that is invited we really want there so we are doing everything we can to make sure we give everyone the opportunity.

 

My wedding isn't until May 2018.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
