    General Timeline question.

    We are getting married June/July 2009 (we will obviously pick a date before doing any of this).

    When did you send out your save the dates?
    Did you ask for those interested to let you know on these?
    What info did you include on these?

    When did you send out the actual invitations?
    What info did you include on these?

    Did you make a website?
    Did your guests find this useful?

      We're getting married on July 1 and I sent out the STDs just over a year in advance...I figured the more time to save the better. I didn't think we would be booking until sometime this fall and then I found out that 2 other brides were going on the same flight as me and had already booked! So, we booked in July. I just finished my invites that I am sending out at the beginning of Sept...which I know is super early, but people need time to plan and my T.A. figures the flight will be sold out before Christmas.
      On the actual invites I included trip info, and then AHR info (just in case people want to make plans to come to Halifax instead of Cuba), I also made a brochure with all the resort info on one side and AHR stuff on the other side.
      I did do a website, just a free one from wedding announcer...I'm not too sure what the guests think, but ones who wrote on our guestbook seem to like it...
      We're married! July 1, 2009

        When did you send out your save the dates? I am planning to send these out late Oct/early Nov (before the holidays)

        When did you send out the actual invitations? I am planning to send out the actual invitations in March with an RSVP in June (6 months ahead)
        What info did you include on these? I am including standard information
        .

        I am planning to send all those who book and additional information packet and travel package about a month before.

        Did you make a website? Yes

          When did you send out your save the dates? I am getting married 1-10-09. I sent out std's 4/08. Did you ask for those interested to let you know on these? I sent out about 100 std's and I asked for people who were interested to let us know so we could send them more info when it was available. I got the price info in June, so I sent out a letter only to the people who mentioned an interest in going.What info did you include on these? On the std's, I included the resort name, wedding date, a note that passports would be required, and a note that we would be having an AHR later for those who could not attend.

          When did you send out the actual invitations? I didn't send out another formal invite for the wedding. I will be sending out a formal invite for the AHR.What info did you include on these?

          Did you make a website? Not that computer savvy!Did your guests find this useful?
