Are STD's really necessary?

Recommended Posts

Do I really need STDs? Can't I just send out the invitations right away instead? People would understand that I'm sending them out early because I'm having a DW right?

I think it really depends on how much notice you're giving your guests.

 

STD's are certainly not a necessity, but I think many people send them out as a way to give people a "heads up" or a nice reminder, especially when the wedding is say...about 6+ months away. I think the logic behind it is because most people begin planning vacations or big trips several months in advance, but they don't usually firm things up until later. It's also a nice way to tell people to start saving up the $$$$ wink.gif

 

It's perfectly feasible to just send out an official invite that serves the same purpose. But I guess sometimes people tend to lose wedding invites or they forget about a wedding date when it's too far in advance.

 

Sending out a STD, and then a wedding invite gives you an extra opportunity to "alert" or remind your guests of the wedding. Doing both is not necessary ~ but it does make it more fun bunny_4.gif

STDs are not necessary as long as you provide your guests with enough notice of your wedding date. We told our guests individually when and where we are having our wedding and we have a wedding website to remind them, but we are also having a smallish wedding. I think your guests will understand why they are getting your invite early.

I agree with the girls above...just make sure to give your guests plenty of notice. I didn't send out save-the-dates. I am just sending my invitations a little earlier. Good luck!

So I sent out an electronic Save the Date through my TA. And I also am sent an evite to track how many people plan on going. This will allow me to spend more on invitations, since I will be sending 2 types, one with an announcemnt and invite to AHR, and one with both an invite and AHR invite. Eek!

I also did electronic STD.. just to put the word out and to help them remember when they need to ask for vacation time for the upcoming year..

We didnt do STD's. Our wedding is in April, we sent our invites the first week of August with all the travel info included. Our RSVP date was September 15th, which was the day deposits/bookings were due.

I emailed STD to lead them to my website waaay ahead of time, and I thought that sending the actual invite closer to the date will remind them about the wedding! People procrastinate and forget things so much!

    • Another option is to find an app that allows for group talk. This Wedding Party App looks pretty neat. https://apracticalwedding.com/wedding-party-app/ 
    • 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?
