    We sent our STD's out in early September & we are sending our invitations out early to middle March. I put down an RSVP date on the invites for 1 month before our wedding, (April 11th). I've been reading that some girls have their invites out already though...but I think anything goes with the destination wedding! :-)

      We sent our invitations out about a week ago-I just wanted to know how many OOT bags I need etc. It is up to you when you send them out

        We sent out our invitations on Tuesday of this week. I need to know how many ppl are coming for sure so I can book our reception and Welcome Bags.. etc. I find that with DW people can be so wishy-washy and so I figured that RSVP cards are set in stone. They need to make up their minds and FAST!! :)

          Anthony's girl-

          I agree it is nice to have some RSVP's. It does help with the planning process. But after experiencing my BF's wedding in October, one thing I learned is that everyone will RSVP, unless they already have prior engagements. So it is a little difficult to really know how many people are coming until they book rooms/airline tickets, even then it is a gamble.

          My friend had 72 RSVP's 60 days before her wedding. 30 days before it went down to 64 booked. The day of her wedding (after paying for 60 guests) only 42 people were able to come.

          I myself sent STD's in July (wanted to give our guests a long time to plan) we received around 92 RSVP's. Then when it came to booking rooms as of today we have 54 guests and about 20 people who have discovered due to the economy and other things they can't come. We are sending invitation the end of Feb. So we are thinking about 60-70 guests.

          Keep us posted on the RSVP planning

            I agree.. it can go either way!! It's really hard to say until last minute who is actually coming. Half our wedding party has bailed on us and I have had to asked new BM's twice!! In the end.. I'm not going to stress about it. As long as the 3 of us are there (our daughter included) then that's all that really matters to us.
            I sent out my STD cards over a year in advance as well and I had people say they are coming and then they aren't and then they are again! Who knows... I just wanted to have a rough number so I could book my Welcome Dinner and our Reception, which needs to be booked 60 days in advance.

              Hi girls I have been MIA for a little while busy at work, got a new laptop and plain life in general.....I hope everyone’s planning is going well!! My dress came in and it fits perfect and all my exercising and eating well has paid off but a few days before I was to go try it on I found out that I am pregnant!!! After a mini meltdown (I didn’t think I was able to get pregnant - we are elated), LOL I am going to send my dress back, pay restocking fees and order 1 size up. my new dress will now be in around April 17th. The bridal salon (Bridal Suite in Port St Lucie, FL) was AMAZINGLY understanding and helpful, I couldn’t be happier! I guess now I need to join the momstobe thread!! I need to get back in the wedding swing soon!!
