Is it terrible that I am not doing invitations ? our wedding is a destination wedding and it’s immediate family only plus two best friends (12 ppl including us). I handed out the save the dates- and we already booked everyone’s flights all together . should I make a formal invite?

@Kimmybean: Only if you feel like you’re going to miss having formal invitations! I personally think it would be kind of fun, esp since it’s only 12 ppl including yourself, it wouldn’t be terribly costly to do. All that being said, since it sounds like everyone is in on it, I wouldn’t worry about it if you’re not feeling it!

@Kimmybean: I would still do nice invitations, maybe you could even do it yourself? It would be a cute gesture even if you are just having 12 people. 🙂

youve both convinced me! Thank you. You’re right I think it would fun, and since it won’t cost a lot it won’t be stressful.

And I was just about to say, why waste the paper / money / time? 🙂 If it’ll be a fun project or experience, you should definitely do them – but if you don’t want to do them for you, then I think you’re fine to skip them!

We are having a wedding with 50 guests…all blood relatives and 5 friends. We didn’t send invitations. I just hate knowing they get thrown away the majority of the time 🙁

@Kimmybean: We just got a wedding invitation from PunchBowl (an online site) today. We got it as I have spent the umpteenth hour hand addressing and assembling our invitations. We were totally jealous and thought it was an amazing idea.

A strict invitation feels a little pointless, could you make it more as an information package? Include information about sites, a map, great food in the area, perhaps something on local breweries, folklore etc? I’m sure they’ll do their own research as well, but I as a guest would have loved if the host had taken the time to arrange something like that.
Oh, and perhaps include a table for currency conversions as well!
