    Hey Gang,

    Can any of you guys please tell me what is suppose to come first. Are you supposed to have a engagement party, then STD's, then invitations? Please advise I just finished creating my STD's but our engagement party isnt until November 2008. I wasnt sure if I should wait until after the party to send them out. We are not getting married until November 2009. Please help inform me to what should be the first step in notifying my guests.

      I would send out the STD's if you already have the location and date set up.

      I am not sure what the etiquette is on engagement parties.

        Well, presumably someone is throwing you the engagement party, correct? In that case, you don't have to worry because the invites will come from them.

        But, you should send the STDs out sooner rather than later, and if you have your date and place set, then send them now.

          for a regular wedding, stds go out about 6 months in advance. for a dw, you can do whatever you want!!

            I would send out the STD as soon as you can so your guest can plan on going to the wedding.
