Here is my plan for nowâ€¦ We are getting married May 31, 2008.
STD magnets- Mailing February 2007
States: the date and invitation to follow
Invitations- mailing May 2007?
I want to give people enough time to save/book their trip. What type of info should be listed? Do I just do the RSVP cards and whoever returns with a yes, I send them the info (i.e. Travel agent, pricing, options)? I also want to put on there if they arenâ€™t able to make it we understand, but we plan on having a backyard reception/party when we return.
Reception (Home) - Mail end May 2008
Plan on having the reception last weekend in June (4th of July is that following Friday) What type of invite should be used for this? I want something casual. For our engagement party we just sent out invites that were printed on 8.5x11 papers from a craft store with something imprinted in the background. I want it to state â€˜Just Marriedâ€™ and details of the party. Should there be a RSVP # or a return card?
Not sure what we are exactly doing. Nothing formal. It will be outside, probably backyard. Maybe even a barbecue, thatâ€™s still up in the air.
Any ideas/tips are appreciated.

I will send out my invites about 8 weeks ahead of time, and have the usual RSVP cards, and probably more location info.

Sending out invites a year early is a little bit too early, I would think the STD's would be better sent out a little later this spring and then send your invites right before the holidays next year. You could send out the invites to your AHR in April or so?

Do a lot of people direct their family/friends to their website for more information rather then listing everything on an invite? I wanted to maybe let my guests know the price range for the wedding, how would I go about doing that or do I leave that up to the travel agency?

Put all that on your website and then direct them to it. As you start to build it send out an e-mail to a group of people and let them take a look at it. If you look at our STD thread you will see that we all put the basic info and then let them find out the other stuff through our TA's and Websites.
It's great you are so ahead of the game, but you have plenty of time and you don't want to send things out to early and people either lose them or forget the date right?
