Invitations too early???
Posted 16 March 2008 - 06:53 PM
My wedding is not until May 2009 but everyone is requesting info now bc of work and finances. Would it be too early to send out invites in May and then after I recieve responses send out newsletter or update? I was thinking that about 10 months is enough time. Of course some family members do not agree with DW so I really want to make sure I give them enough time.

You can also send a STD with your website and provide all the info on your website.

I'm getting married in Nov. and some of my guests are still waiting for airlines like Jet Blue to post their schedule/prices. I provided 9 months notice for my guests and I think that is plenty!

On the STD's I included our website, which had a lot of info on it, the wedding location, the dates we'd be traveling and our contact info. Not much more info than that. On the invitations I included specific locations (oceana terrace, gazebo) and times etc.
I have to say, on the forum people had warned me that if my guests received their invitations too early, they'd end up throwing them aside because they had a lot of time to book; they just wouldn't feel a sense of urgency. This may be true for some guests, but it lifted a HUGE weight off my shoulders. My guests booked on time (for the most part) and with everything determined 9 months ahead of time including bookings, menu selections, exact # of guests, it was so much easier to get things done earlier on. So I'm all for sending them out nice and early!!

Save your formal invites for closer to the date - 3-4 months prior is probably good.
You can always send out a newsletter or something between the STD and the formal invite, just as a reminder.
Happily married since 2008
