When is a good time to send out

the STD's?! I have friends and family

and Europe and I know it will be kind

of expensive for them to come over

to Mexico to attend our wedding..

Therefor I would like to give them as

much notice as I possibly can so

they have time so save up money.

At the same time I don't want to

send them out too soon either.


So.. when did you/will you send out

your STD's?!

I was wondering the same thing myself. I am planning on getting married in December 2010 and I am going to send the STD's 1 year prior to the date that should give the relatives plenty of time of start saving their money

We sent our STDs 6 months before...but only close friends and family are coming so they all knew about the date & location a few months before that.


We did an STD email when we decided on the date (about 8 months before).


I dont think a year is too early since you have people traveling a long distance. Give them time to save!

I sent STD's as soon as we booked our resort, which was about 9 months. I wanted to give people as much time as possible to plan and save. I wanted to send about a year in advance, but we couldn't book with our resort yet. I don't think a year is too soon at all for a DW.

As soon as we have the resort booked and confirmed, I'll start printing off my std's and send them out asap after that...i'm hoping there will be a 2-3 month gap between them receiving them, and them needing to pay their deposit to book their place.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
