You said 45 weeks, but I see your date is in January. So you have 45 days! Almost there! That's very close to your wedding to send out invites, especially when you already have several people booked! I think it's great to give additional information about the wedding, but probably unnecessary to send formal invites (unless you're trying to persuade more people to book their trips).
For me, I sent out my save the dates a little late. I just got them out a couple of weeks ago, with about 7 months to go to the wedding. I was planning on sending out formal invites in January and ideally I want everyone to book by March to take advantage of the group discount. But my STD's and website and very thorough with full travel information, info about the hotels and Jamaica, and info about the wedding events (although those are not really planned and may change). I'm starting to doubt whether I need to send out invitations, but I actually wrote on my STD's "formal invitations to follow", so I feel obligated to send them out! Plus I think some people may be waiting for the invites to book their trip!

I'm hesitant to provide wedding information since it sounds like the WC seem to be changing info. Or maybe I'm just being paranoid. I've booked my ceremony for 4:30pm and have requested the restaurant. I am providing OOT bags and welcome letters at the resort, so maybe I don't need to mail out anything beforehand. What did other brides do?
