        Have any of you ladies that are getting married June/July 2011 sat with your TA yet about pricing? And if you have, when are you sending out your invites? And when are you asking for and RSVP by?

          I think it'll look better without the bows. Are you gonna display your wedding programs on them? If you do, it'll make it all come together nicely :)

              I'm not getting married in June/July but my STD are being sent 9 1/2 months before the wedding and invites are being sent out 7 months before the wedding and requesting RSVP's be received no later than 3 months before the wedding and advising people that all bookings must be done no later than 2 months prior to the wedding (hotel is requiring a full guest list of attendants one month prior to the wedding). I just talked to a TA at the beginning of this month and she said prices for Funjet are not out yet for May of next year so to call her back at the end of this month. And she said since it's still sooo early as time goes by prices are more than likely going to drop. If i get a really good price before invitations are sent out i may just email my close family to let them know.

                Agreed on that! I am getting married in Mid May. I skipped the STD and moved straight to invitations with booking info. I am sending those out at the end of Aug and asking for RSVP for 3 months prior. It is my goal (We will see if it happens to know what 80% of the guest list is doing by the new year)
                I was thinking of doing a Remember or Thank you for booking in Christmas cards this holiday season.
                Maggie and Jay GOT married on May 15th 2011 at Azul Sensatori. Best International Wedding EVER!

                  The Christmas cards thing is a good idea. I even put on my RSVP's at the very bottom that responses not received on or before Feb.14 will kindly be taken as a not able to attend. I just don't want people to try to send RSVP's weeks before the wedding. I need to know my guest count so i can know the final bill of the wedding at least 2 months before and i also noted that no bookings will be accepted after March 14. And if anyone has any problems with these requirements than they don't need to come! HA! Is that too mean?
