People got really excited, my almost hubby wrote a witty letter with our intentions(we added a picture of a palm tree and color photocopied them on white paper) and even though we didn't have a specific date or resort, we gave our wedding webites and have updated them from there.
Our friends and family loved it. It got them excited, they have thanked us for the advanced notice, and it drummed up support for the trip. The magnet will hopefully keep reminding them everytime they go to their fridge. So if you can afford it, I would do it, and it doesn't need to be expensive or elaborate.

Is it ok to just send the invite with all the info about the resort and booking in lieu of an STD? I am planning to get married Dec 2010 so I want to get the info to my guest so that they can start saving pronto!
I feel like if I give them all the info they need from the start (pricing and etc), then that might help them better determine if they plan on going or not. If I send out the STDs I might get rsvp's that all say yes they'll come but then when I send out the actual invites with the pricing it might be a different story.
My mother says it would be to overwhelming to hit guest with everything at once, but I think if I was invited to a DW I would want all the info at once so that I could be able to decide at once. If I did do this I would Prob send them out the end of this year maybe Nov or Dec.
What do you guys think about this?
Thanks a million!

My question is, how much time should I give them to RSVP? Is two months (July) enough time or way too long?

Anyone I am inviting already knows it is a dw and has for at least 6 months now. I'm so anxious for the prices to come out so I can finally get things firmed up. Waiting for quotes is the most frustrating part of this!

We sent ours out in October 2008 for our August 2009 wedding and most people appreciated the advance notice and loved that we spend the time to send them something special; even if they couldn't attend. Our invites went out in March 2009 to everyone (40 people) even though we know that only 17 people could attend and had already booked. And again, I received a lot of comments from people appreciating the courtesy of including them whether or not they were attending.
