I have a question for you all girls.
I am having my destination wedding on Hamilton Island in November, and as such we let all of our guests know about the wedding a year ago. The ones that couldn't come quickly told us, but the ones that can come have already paid for their flights and booked their accommodation. As we have now reached our max numbers for the reception, their isn't anyone left to invite.
Sooo...do you think it is nesseasry to send out invites, considering that the people I will send them to have long since booked and paid for everything? The reason I ask is I was pricing up some invites on the weekend, and was astounded at how expensive it can be (even if I DIY them). Now I would really love to give everyone "out of Town" or gift bags when they arrive, but I dont think my budget will allow for them, but if I cut out the invites, I could afford it. Do you think it is rude not to send invites, or on the scale of things would the guests prefer the OOT bags?
Sorry if this is a long, rambling post
