                Congrats!  I am sending mine out 3-3.5 months before (sent out STDs earlier too) because I don't want to give people too much time to forget about it if I send it too far in advance! haha, not sure what others are planning/have done though!

                  I'm just not sure what to do...to break it down; the wedding coordinator in DR said she would need a guest list 3 months before our wedding which would be August.

                  If people are booking with our group rate, they have to make a full payment by the beginning of September.

                  So I almost feel like I need to stick with those timelines, you know?

                   

                  I don't want people booking after the rest of book because that will alter the packages for our wedding as well (both the ceremony and the reception).

                  So my idea was to send out invitations in May, have them RSVP by July and then that way I can get a guest list to the coordinator by August AND they will have sufficient time to pay for September.

                   

                  I don't know if that makes any sense...lol

                    That makes total sense Aphrodite! :) you're on the right track.

                     

                    You already sent out the Save the date which is always good, have you done a wedding website? I have one and I put all the information needed to book the trip on it, I had a couple of guests that were ready to book or leave a deposit and would be fine without receiving the invitation first in order to do it.

                      @Aphrodite:

                       

                      I'm getting married November 26, 2011. All of my guests have already put down their deposits for the hotel. We went through a travel agent and let her handle the bookings. Im sending out official invitations in May and then a reminder keepsake in September. Because we got such a good deal, we only had a 3 week window to get our initial deposit in. One thing you may want to consider with your timeline is that because of the unrest in the Middle East, gasoline prices are rising like crazy. Therefore, ticket prices are going up. You may want to let your guests know the booking information now so that they can go ahead and get their airline tickets.

                       

                      I looked at the Gran Bahia Principe and it is absolutely beautiful. I had to go with another resort because they didn't have my date open.
