    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.
