Ok, so I'm sending out boarding pass save the dates. Is it etiquette to still send out formal invitations? They're ususally sent out 3 months before the wedding, but people will more than likely be booked by then so what's the point reallyhuh.gif I mean won't people be telling me when they book?

 

I'm just curious what others are doing.

Good question. I was thinking the same thing and decided to search the forum for an answer. I sent out STD and a letter with information on our plans, the travel details and the resort for my wedding in December. 32 people have booked already with the travel agent and I do not expect anyone else to book. I am also curious as to what others are doing and have done. Thanks for posing the question.

I agree!

 

I am sending save-the-dates 11 1/2 months before the wedding. I am still doing invitations, but am breaking the rules and sending them out 6 months ahead of time. Probably will send them out about November 1 for our May 1 wedding. If I feel I need to, I can do cheap postcards again. I am hoping 12 months and 6 months works fine.

I also sent my invitations out earlier than three months...I think it was more like 9!! I sent my STDs when I knew that we were having a DW and kind of had an idea of where & when. I knew I wanted invitations (I found really cute palm tree ones!), but like you ladies couldn't really justify sending them out. I knew we would be having a party to celebrate our wedding when we went "home" this summer so I added "reception in Newfoundland summer 2009...details to be determined". This was my justification...to send them so people would know about the reception!!

 

Remember...it's a DW so most traditions/timelines/expectations are typically thrown out the window. Do what you want!!!! woot2.gif

I sent out boarding pass STDs about 10 months in advance with a tentative RSVP card. I was planning on sending out formal invitations as well but decided against it. I am going to send out a formal invite for my AHR with response cards.

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
