I would give yourself about three months notice to get everything situated for the WC as well as if you are doing OOT bags. Or if you are having seating charts at the reception. Just depends on how much time ahead you think you will need to get things organized.

My wedding is November 7, 2008 and am working on my invitations right now. We put the RSVP date as August 15. We have some immediate family and friends booked so far, and I know my other immediate family will be booking soon. However, there is extended family that I haven't heard from since we sent the STDs out in October. I want to know exactly how many people are coming so we know how much the wedding is going to cost and order enough OOT bags etc.

My wedding is June 28, 2008 we sent out our invitations 6 months prior to the wedding(1st week of Jan.) to give people enought time to figure out if they could make it. The RSVP due date was Feb. 15 about 6 weeks after folks should have received the invites.

we sent STDs 5 months in advance with a preliminary rsvp due by april 1, 08 so we would have a good idea who to expect (thank goodness we did, we have some people who said yes that we definitely thought would say no, but we are so happy they are able to come), just ordered our formal invitations yesterday, will send invitations out may 10 with a june 28 rsvp date for our aug 9th wedding.

My wedding is April 11th, and I had my RSVP for Feb. 1st. My reasoning was that when people didn't respond, I had two weeks to call people prior to the 45 day window that counts typically have to be in or final payments have to be made to the travel agent.

Of course, with that said, I have about 1/3 of my RSVPs which STILL have not been returned. lousy waste of postage.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
