Save the Dates, Newsletters & Pre-RSVP

Thank you everyone who is reading along, that really means a lot!

Just a quick update tonight, a few weeks ago, we sent out our Save the Dates, A Pre-RSVP card and a newsletter. We have had such a great response from them all, everyone has loved them. We are still hanging out for our pre-rsvp's to come back to give us an indication of numbers, they are due back June 1st, so still 8 weeks to go... boo! I am impatient and want to know who is thinking about coming and not.

So here is a copy of our Save the Dates.


We were so happy with these. We got them from Etsy, the seller was so lovely and so quick. She sent me a proof first then sent me the final copy and it was in the standard 4x6 photo, so I was able to get them printed for about .10cents each which is really cheap! Then just got some magnets, to stick on the back of them.

Next is the pre-rsvp card, which I typed up and got printed on a nice purple sparkly card. I have to admit here, I did see this rsvp card on here somewhere, and I wish I could remember who the bride was, I absolutely loved them. So if you are reading here, thank you, thank you and I'm sorry I didn't ask you first about using your idea.



You will also notice a little monogram at the bottom of the card, which I also bought off Etsy from another seller. We love it and hope to use it on more wedding related things, newsletters, favours and welcome bags.

Lastly in the envelope was the newsletter. We got a lot of comments on how great the newsletter was. So I think we will be doing this at least every 3months, because there is just so much to know about WDW! Plus information for our guests as they are travelling from Australia and few people have never travelled overseas before. We also downloaded the Disney font, which is funny as a few of our guests actually thought Disney produced the newsletters for us hehe!



So that's it for tonight, its getting late, I have to get up and go to the gym in the morning, getting my bridal bootcamp starting early hehe!

Thank you for reading along
Jess

If I can't fly, let me sing. Or, in other words if I can't be in Disney, let me talk about it !

Congrats and welcome! I love your STDs. I used a lot of the vendors you are using too like Il Mulino, Randy and Beaute Speciale. Good choices!

Here is Il Mulino's courtyard:



It looks exactly like the West Courtyard that you can use as a ceremony location. It is really pretty and we almost did a cocktail hour out there but didn't want to add the $1,000 minimum to our $3,000 private rooms minimum.

I can't wait to hear more about your plans!

Love your Save the Date and the paper that you chose, so pretty. I really like that kind of paper I think it makes it more "wedding-y"

I love your STDs and it will be interesting to see how many guests you get with such a long trip. I bet this will be the first time that many people get to go to Disney.

I love the color of the purple (purple is my favorite color)

I love your STDs! Purple was one of our wedding colors (and one of my favorites!) so I may be a little biased. Etsy is a gold mine for wedding goodies!

Thankyou! I love the courtyard outside il Mulino, I just really hope that it's not raining, have been reading really mixed reviews about weather and now i am so worried that its going to rain! I loved reading your reviews of the vendors, so thank you for providing your feedback, its been really great.

Thankyou! Yes I'm getting impatient although they are not due back until 1 June hahaha! But we have received a few back now, but we are hoping for about 20 people or so. just have to see how we go. I will be spewing if we have under 20 as we could have had an escape wedding hehe.

Thank you very for following along and your comments! you are all so kind!

Well today I floated the idea past hubby to be, about flying to Orlando to do a site visit a bit of a mini getaway! So we are now looking at flights and accommodation and all that sorta thing, to see if its looking like we can make the trip.

Looking at around October/November for about 10days. Its a big journey from Australia about 16 hours direct flying!

If I was to attend, for Swan/Dolphin ladies, would I be able to meet with our wedding coordinator, as well as do a taste testing at Il Mulino as well as taste testing at It's Tasty Too for our cake?
What else could we do ?

Thank you girls so much for you thoughts! Ohh maybe an engagement shoot with Randy!!

We were able to meet up with our coordinator one time we were at WDW! Just email them with plenty of notice and tell them you'd like to schedule a meet up! We met at the S/D, did a walk through, and sat and chat together! It was great!

I'm not sure about the tasting at Il Mulino but you could definitely do one at It's Tasty Too! Again, just email or call Heather. You won't be disappointed-- her cakes are amazing!!

You may want to consider getting a hair/makeup trial done as well and start scoping out the hotels you'd like to room block (or just ones to recommend for your guests).

If you're going to do a welcome party, rehearsal dinner, or after party, I'd try to find a place on property that you like!

If I think of anything else, I'll post!
