Hi ladies,

 

 

Im a liitle confused in regards to the std's and invites! Who do you send std's to? Do you send out std's to everyone you want to invite and then whomever replies saying that they can attend, then send them an invitation?

 

Thanks for the clarification!!

We sent STDs to everyone we wanted to come and we knew wnated to be there. We sent these out 9 months in advance. We are sending out invites about 7 months out form the date and these will go to more people that we expect can't make it. Some of the late invitations are more "gesture" on behalf of our families.

I'll be sending out all of my invites out about 9 months ahead and then a reminder about 90 days before the wedding. This way people will have all the information right away. I know I did it backwards but most of my friends said that this would help them save to make it. :):):)

We sent out STD magnets and a letter describing what we are doing, who are travel agent is, where they can contact her, prices, etc....we sent these out to everyone- even those that we knew wouldnt come.....we sent these out about 1 year before our wedding..

 

we will be sending out AHR invites to everyone as well in the new year.

There are lots of thread on this. Try doing a search or browse the invite forum.

 

We sent STDs out about 10 months before the wedding. I would have liked to do it sooner, but that was when we had travel dates, flight info, etc.

 

Ettiquette-ly (that's my new word of the day) everyone who is told to hold the date should receive an invite.

 

Since we are having an AHR, we combined the wedding announcement with the AHR invite. I didn't want to do 3 sets of invites (STD, wedding, AHR).

I'm actually going to make my STD's this week (wedding is in April) and send them out. THEN, I'm going to send invites with all of the information about the trip to people that are going about 3mos in advance. I'm hoping that is okay :)

We are doing the samething as nikkianddean - sent out std 9 mo before to everyone and our invites will go out in another month (7 mo before wedding) and we will also send them to everyone even if we know they can not come.

We sent our Save the dates in March 08 - stating that the wedding was to be expected in Feb of 2009 and that passports were required

 

In May of 08 we sent the invite - detailing that the wedding is infact in January 09, all of our guests were thankful for the heads up, especially for the purposes of booking holidays.

 

/A.

    • 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?
