    I just want to get some opinions as to whether this would be confusing for STDs.

    We're getting married in February 2010 but because it's so far in advance we can't book a location yet. Our TA said that we should be able to book in March or April. That being said we want to send out our STDs in January just to give people a head's up about saving money. We're inviting 150+ people and we expect that around 50-75 will come so we don't want to spend all of time clarifying things if we confuse people!

    We want to get married in Punta Cana but because we're going to be going during a high time and we still want to keep the price for our guests down we may have to choose Cuba insead (Cayo Santa Maria). We're doing boarding pass save the dates so would it be really confusing if we put under destination: "Dominican Republic/Cuba"? Or is there a better way to state this? We will put that details will follow. Also, since we don't know the exact date of the wedding (we know that it will be the third week of February) do we just put February 2010? Or should we give an arbitrary date?

    I want to let the person who is making our wedding stationary know this weekend, plus I'm just excited to finally get to do something for the wedding!

    BTW if there are any other Ottawa brides looking for someone to make stationary PM me, the woman we are going with is awesome and her prices are really good. I wish that I would have the time or supplies to make my stuff myself but she's a great alternative!

      Could you say "somewhere warm" for the location or "on the beach"? Or even say TBD but we are considering Punta Cana and Cuba.

        If you send out the STDs this early and don't know all the details, I would just leave it as having a destination wedding, somewhere tropical in February 2010...details to follow. Just to let people know. That way you don't have to go back and say Punta Cana instead of Cuba and February 10th instead of 12th, or whatever the case may be.

          I agree...keep it general until you know the details. People tend to get in a panic if you start changing things (even if they know in advance that it's tentative)!

            You could just say the Caribbean. It's not specific, but gives people an idea of what your plans are.

              I agree, simple is best.

                I agree, just let ppl know that it will be a DW in Feb 2010

                  Why not just wait until you can book? You're still giving your guests plenty of time to save and get it together. Just a thought :)

                    In addition to Kayte's comment...you could send out an announcement (ie, we are planning on having a DW sometime in Feb. 2010. We wanted to give everyone the heads up so you can start saving now!!! More details will be sent when we have made our decision). That could just be a postcard type thing (vistaprint has great deals). Then you can save your boarding pass STDs for when you have all the details.

                      I would wait until you have the details nailed down-- it will save your guests some confusion and you from having to send out multiple mailings.
