I have a question I hope one of you can give me a solid answer to!
I am getting married in the Dominican Republic in July 2013. I sent out Save the Dates’ months ago, which referred guests to view our wedding website with all of the information they could possibly need on it. I requested that our guests RSVP online.
I am now looking at probably around 15-20 guests and am pricing out formal invitations, but really I don’t know why… There will be no new information on there, except the time of the ceremony and ceremony location, but I was planning on making itineraries for the Out of Town bags anyways… Soo does it seem like a waste of time/money/energy to have formal invites? DO you think I will regret not making them?
Have any of you had this same thought??

@SchmukalsBride: We sent out our save the dates and booking info by email almost a year ago and if people are coming they are too book by February 28, 2013. I then got formal invites made that have out wedding date, location and wedding website on it. I think it is a nice touch to have the formal invites and if you only have 15 to 20 guests then it couldnt be that much to get formal invites done

Why don’t you just print your own very basic single sheet invites. I think tt would be wierd to not do invitations at all after the STD’s.

do the formal invitations. I did both the Save-The-Date Cards and invitations. I used Vistaprint for both and they came out really nicely and they were cheap! Got a lot of compliments on them but people appreciate having both.

I would go ahead with the formal invites. people are likely going to expect them. Considering you have a small guest count, the cost shouldn’t be that large. And they’re a great keepsake for yourself and guests.
Also, nice choice on Punta Cana..amazing place to get married!

I would definitely do some type of formal invitations. They don’t have to be expensive or anything. Like PP said, try VistaPrint. Look for a $70 of $17 coupon. They are awesome.

I agree with the above posts. Formal would be lovely…x

@SchmukalsBride: Yes, you should still do a physical mailed invitation. Save-The-Date Cards are not the invitation themselves, but it means they’re invited with more info to come. Whether or not they should be formal, really depends on the feel of your wedding. Usually invitations set the tone of the wedding (formal, casual, etc).
Are all of your guests internet savvy?

Thanks for all of the input ladies. Looks like formal invites are going to be made!
I have found a few people on esty that make really nice invites for just as much as I would spend (maybe even less) to put together my own invites.
