      I've refused to send mine out lol I've told FI when he gets home on leave he can do it - he's doing bugger all else lol So probably next week or the week after - return date 1st Feb. They've had plenty time - everyone has known since last January and had prices since April

        We sent out our invites last week with RSVP by Feb. 1st. We're getting married on the same day! :)

        Also, our TA just told us last week that the prices are going up for resorts in RM. Did anyone else hear about this? Apparently, She still has rooms available at our originally quoted rate, but she thinks the rates will go up by end of year. We're sending out an email tonight to everyone to encourage them to at least put their deposit down for the room as soon as possible to guarantee the lower rate. Hopefully that'll get them booking....:) We already have 40 people booked! Yay!

              I was thinking of sending mine out by the end of January. We sent out save-the-dates with our website this summer, and a few people have already booked... Do you think that will be enough time?

                I know the guy for our AHR said to make sure the guests have 2 months to RSVP. I'm not sure if that counts for a DW, but it seems a good rule of thumb. I'd set the latest you want people to book and count back 2 months and a week or so from there.

                I didn't do formal invites for our actual wedding. We did more word of mouth. We have 21 cruising including ourselves so far. I gave the procrastinators a cut off of Jan 31! After that they can find there own transportation to the wedding and they're not getting a OOT Bag!!!

                    I don't think you are behind at all. I'm almost exactly where you are, except my invites are done. We are sending them out right after the first of the year. I also need all of my accessories, more OOT bag filler, welcome letter, dj playlist, to select flowers and music, etc. I would say you are doing fabulously!!! You even have your seating chart and GUESTS BOOKED! I would say you are ahead of the game in many ways. Way to go!
