Overseas Wedding - Invite How far in advance

Recommended Posts

Guys,

 

How long should you give your guest if your planning a wedding overseas ?

We have family in Australia and Canada and plan to have the big day in thailand.

 

What do you think ? 6months ? 9 ? 12 ?

I know this sounds weird, but, because all our guests are flying in from the five continents, to Jamaica for our wedding, we're planning on sending out our STD's 14-16 months in advance, the first of a series of 3booking reminder notices 10-12 months in advance, the formal invitations 8 months in advance, and the last 2 booking notices 6 months and 3 months in advance. I know this looks weird, but our friends and family are already asking us to send STD"s and notices out first, so they can start requesting the dates off, and then the traditional invitations will follow. It all depends on your family and friends and how much time you'll need to book and be there. Luckily for us, we still have a few years (that's why I think a great TA/WP combo is essential). Anyways, hope this helps. Maybe you could give them 12 months grace?

I'm sending out my invites around 3 months in advance - but only because my home is under renovation and i have no where else to make them =( otherwise I would mail them at the 6 month mark

I sent mine out a year in advance to give all my guests time to book off time, save money and get ready for it.

 

I think more time is better than shorter time and you may get more guests that way.

 

Good Luck!

I would say send a save the date as soon as possible. That way people can start planning and saving money.

Then, 3-4 months before send the official invite.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
