Is it crazy for me to send out STDs like 10 months in advance?  I'm assuming not, but just thought I'd look into it.  I finished my draft STD today and it's near perfect!  Loved the boarding pass STD idea.  So I took it and ran.  DIY is so much better than I thought.  It's fun (I'm guessing the novelty will wear off) and it allows you to make it just as you want!

bruceg05,

I don't think that's too early. It will give people enough time to arrange vacation time, save their money and plan ahead for your wedding. We sent our STD's out in February. I'm sending formal invites in August (I think) for our December wedding.

STD's went out a full year before the wedding and the invites went out 4 months in advance.  Good luck with all your DIY projects!

I don't think that is bad, if it is then we are crazy too...  wink.gif

I sent our STD out 14 months before.  We always promised everyone that we would give them at least a year to save, so this is just how the timing worked out for when we got engaged and need to have the wedding.  I am planning on sending the invites out 5-6 months before, so that I can get my final head count at least 60 days before.  Our guests might put a damper on that plan, but it is what I am trying for.

I also sent Save the Dates out about 10 months before the wedding. The more time people have to plan and save the better I think! I plan on sending formal invitations in the fall (our date is January).

Thanks for all the advice ladies...  I didn't think that was too early but my friend did a DW and didn't send them out till Octoberish for a May wedding.  So I didn't know if I was jumping the gun!

I sent my STD out about 8 months ahead of time and then I just sent my invites out 5 months out because my TA wants people to reserve the rooms by the end of June and I wanted to include a reminder in the invite. I felt like it was really early, but I know that people need to book the trip and I've already been told that flights are going up for November.

I also wanted to let those of you who are concerened about getting through to Tai Flora that I spoke to Jodi last night. She apologized for how long it takes to return emails and calls, but she said that she should be better from now on because she is now getting her emails through her phone so she can respond quicker. I'm hoping that she will stick to her word, but the ideas that she did send me yesterday looked great so I still want to give them a chance.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
