We sent out out STD's in May (I think). Out of 44 invited, we have 18 booked. Some of the people who booked right away surprised us and some who still haven't booked surprised us as well (we thought for sure some of them would have by now). I think it depends on the people. Some people just aren't in a rush and figure they can do it last minute. I have major concerns about some of them myself because airfare certainly isn't getting any cheaper! Our invites are going out in 3 weeks for our January wedding. Hopefully anyone else planning to come will get moving...

I guess I'm the bride with all the slackers! My wedding is in November and most of my guests just booked over the weekend. I found even if you send email reminders, encouragements, and low budget offers, most people will book when they want to. At least that was the case for my wedding. I have 43 booked and am still expecting another 15.

About a month after I sent out the STDs, everyone of my guests but one booked. But we had a book by date in order to get a certain rate so they had to book asap. We sent formal invites 4 months before the wedding.

 

I would wait a couple of months, if not that many guests book than maybe you should send your formal invites out sooner

Hi Yamille,

We sent out our STD about 3 weeks ago. So far 2 have booked, with a lot of verbal "we're coming". I'm not counting anyone in until they actually book. I think we will have a lot of slackers. But I'm not going to worry about it because I'll go crazy trying to control it. If they want to go, they'll book.

Good luck!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
