    I sent mine out mid-March to give people time to still book if they wanted to come to the wedding.

      Ok, is this really bad? I wasn't planning on sending out actual invitations. We sent out our STD's and I figured if a lot of people were attending then I would mail out formal invitations...well it turns out that there are about 24 people going, so should I even send them out? Are you ladies sending them out with the AHR info too, or what is the deal? I still have so much to do!

      To do:
      BM jewerly
      FG baskets/buckets
      RB shell or something
      Ipod playlist
      Gifts...for everyone
      OOT bags and items for it (oh I bought six deck of cards)
      Get ring sized
      Buy fans and ribbon to decorate
      Welcome letter
      Readings for ceremony
      FG dresses-I bought them but not sure if I like them a whole lot!
      RB shirt
      I know there is alot more, I just can't think of it right now! I'm freaking out ladies

        We are not doing invitations for Jamaica. We had sent out STDs last year and most people responded to those. We did not want to spend more money on invitations when just about everyone who is going has already booked their trip and they have all the info that they really need from our wedding website. We did make invitations for our AHR that is in August. We are planning to send them out right before we leave for Jamaica.

          I went ahead and purchased invitiations, and mailed them out at the begining of March, becuase our final deposits are due next week, so I wanted to give people plenty of time.

          I'm a little freaked out right now too, as I have a huge list of "To Do's", but I know it will all get taken care of.

          I also think you'll be fine, remember to b-r-e-a-t-h-e. :)

            We did not send out invitations. Our STDs had all the info necessary to book, etc...so we didn't send invitations. We did however send a reminder to folks to book their travel and get their passports ready in January. Only have 16 people booked so far, but have probably at least 10 more still saying they are coming (I wish they would just hurry up a book!!!!) Sorry, bridezilla came out for a second

              We aren't sending out invitations. We sent out STDs probably a year in advance with our website on it so everyone had all the info they needed to book. We had everyone RSVP on our website and also put on there that we weren't sending out formal invitations. Everyone's booked and RSVP'd so we are set.

              We are sending out invitations to our AHR in September though.

                We also didn't send out 'actual' invitations. We sent out STD with info and our website has lots of info to. We have 35 people booked so we didn't think invite were necessary.

                We are sending out pre-travel brochures. I actually need to finish those up, we hope to send them out the beginning of May.

                Then we will send out invite for our AHR which is in August, when we get back after the wedding. Probably the 2nd week of June.

                I have lots of little things piled on my to-do list including...
                finish pre-travel brochures
                make tags for OOT bags (probably using monogram on business card)
                wrap fan handles, attach starfish charm
                figure out music!! This one is stumping me!!

                  Thanks for the info. I don't we will send out formal invites...like you said those who are going have booked and know where to find the info. I need to get invites for our AHR though...add one more thing to the list.

                  KatyKo-I hear you in reference to the people that say they are going and haven't booked! We have about 10 people still lingering too! I actually have a friend that has booked but hasn't applied for her passport. She is going to pay extra to have it rushed...but she is going to drive me crazy!!!!!

                  Soon2bepowers-what are you putting on your pre-travel brochures?

                    Wow, I just found this Thread. I'm a June 1st bride and feel like I have WAAAY too much to do yet!
                    We still have GM's attire to purchase, FI's pants and shoes need to be decided on, jewelry to purchase, music selections to make, OOT bags, still have a couple flights to book (we originally were taking the ferry btw Maui and Oahu during our honeymoon before it shut down), wedding party gifts, along with a lot of other little things that still have some time. We just recently got FI's wedding band and are getting mine sized.
                    Have actually gotten a lot accomplished real recently but still feels like a lot left! I'll just be happy for the day to come and we get to say "I Do" and the stress will be over lol.
