    Thanks for the reverse idea - I was thinking of sending out a reminder later and the invites now..

I was originally going to use these as save the dates but then I realized that I would be sending the same info twice with the invites and the STDS.
      then why not use them as a std and send out a nice formal invite?

        You girls are great with all the suggestions! I might just send them out now and wait and see how things go... then decide later if I want to send formal invites with RSVPs depending on how many ppl book..

          Just make sure if you are booking with a tour group (such as Apple) that there are enough spots on the charter. I called during the second week of Nov and there were only 48 seats available on the charter. I had to put a deposit down to hold the rest of the plane. Yikes.

My TA says that the agency needs everyone to pay their last payments by March 28, 2008. I was thinking of sending out the invites to everyone with RSVP cards and possibly info about how they need to make final payments by March 28 and that they can RSVP on the website. Do you think I should send those out in like late Feb and tell them to send them back to me by late April? Or should I send some sort of newsletter to folks now to remind them of payments and passports and such? The only thing with that is that I wanted to send out newsletters and travel info packets for those who are definetly going a couple weeks before the wedding. That would set me up for having to send stuff out 3 times which is alot of postage.

            Someone help...
            My wedding is a couple weeks after yours & only 7 people have paid deposits. Many people are planning on it, but I think it's hard to get them to do it before the holidays. Most people i talk to have been meaning to for a while, but haven't gotten around to it. the ones who are booked are my family & I pretty much planned it all for them & they called & made a deposit. I thought we'd all be booked by now, but it's just not happening. I really don't care if it ends up being a small wedding so it's not bothering me at all.
