    Hello ladies,

    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to word invitations when you don't know the date? My FI and I are having a civil ceremony in PV in a year or so, and we've picked the week we want, and the resort... But when it comes to the STD's and invites, is it ok to leave it as, "Week of January 16-23 2010"?

    Apparently the judge will determine the date and time of the ceremony, based on his/her availability. That won't be until AFTER we submit the paperwork and pay the fees.

    Any thoughts? Let me know if you need more information.

    Note: We're getting married at the Decameron. We've already received the package from the wedding coordinator, Cesar Navarro. This is the information he provided about the civil ceremony.

      Good question...I would love to know that answer!
      FI and I are planning a week at the end of January 2010, but in Mazatlan!
      However, the TA's say the travel books don't come out til April/May...and I would like to start my STD.
      I've read in other threads that it's not proper to send out the week info until you have a specific date...but in certain situations I would have to agree that it is better than not sending anything
      I would like to know how you plan on wording this...
      Any other suggestions?

          I would only send out STD's if you feel you have to send out something more formal...

          IMHO I would send out a friendly newsletter type note telling your loved ones that you are planning a DW and are looking at this week in PV. That you will send out STD's and/or invites as soon as the date is confirmed along with other information to coordinate their travel. There are tons of newsletter templates on this forum.

            That's a great idea! Since I won't have a specific date til early summer, at least with a newsletter, I can give them an idea of when we are hoping and to start saving!

              I am going to send out save the dates with just Jamacia April, 2010 on it and an RSVP with our wedding website. I figure this way we can get a head count for when we go to book. Our TA said we needed that to set seats aside. Do you think this is alright? We'll send formal invitations as well.
