Early Invitations vs. Save The Dates
Posted 31 October 2008 - 01:37 PM
So my plan was to send out my Save The Dates in mid-September. I was doing good...had them all printed and ready to go and then the Mexican goverment decides to close the resort I had booked...NICE! So they've been sitting here a month because I don't know what to do. I'm to the point I am ready to book a new resort so I can give people plenty of advance notice of the wedding. I really like Dreams Tulum but I'm a planner and this uncertainty is killing me!
I'm thinking that it will take a few weeks to get things finalized and re-printed so we are now looking at the Save The Dates going out in late November or early December. It would still be 7.5 months out from my wedding date but I'm wondering if I should just go ahead and send out the invitations instead of doing a Save The Date and then an invitation a couple of months before the wedding like I had planned. What do ya'll think?
Have any of you sent out an invitation that early?

I personally think they are a fantastic idea, especially for destination weddings. But at the same time, they aren't essential. If I didn't have time on my hands, i'd probably skip them too.

I think you should consider going to a different resort. Dreams Cancun seems to be really nice. Have you seen the threads for the Dreams Tulum? You may want to check them out.
You have to consider the guests you expect. How long of a notice do you need to give them so they can pay. In my situation, everyone already complained about us having a DW and the cost. So I am giving them almost a year to pay for their trip.
SORRY, SO LONG WINDED!!
