I just found this thread so I apologize that I am a bit late to the party My fiance and I are getting married on April 17th, 2010 at the Iberostar Paraiso Beach in Playa del Carmen and I'm super excited! The only problem is that no one has booked the trip yet! I send out STD post cards with the travel agent name and our website (which as a TON of info about travel arrangements) as well as a date that I requested guests contact the agent by. That date was yesterday...there have been several inquiries but no booking.
That being said, I am contemplating one of the below timelines for invites in hopes of getting people moving!
STD cards sent at the end of June.
Send formal invites as soon as possible requesting RSVP's by mid-November (before the holidays begin).
STD cards sent end of June
Send out a letter or email to all guests with all travel information and TA contact info to reiterate the details.
Send formal invites in November with an RSVP date in January
Any input would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks Ladies!!

I hear ya on the booking part. I thought more people would have booked based on the STDs in May and the website, but alas the FI and I think we are the only hits on the website =)
We aren't going to get the invites done before November I think, but we are looking to send the first week in January with an RSVP on Feb. 28. It's still 8 weeks with the invite. I think the letter is great to get the ball rolling again. Then hopefully it will be the topic of conversation for Thanksgiving and Christmas =)
