Etiquette says you can send them out as early as a year in advance - and I agree. The point is to give proper notice to your guests so that they can plan/budget/etc accordingly.

 

I wish mine went out that early, but we ended up at 9 months out.

 

I will say that the wedding didn't feel "official" to us until we sent out our save the dates, so that made it really fun and exciting for us.

I dont think there is anything wrong with sending them out now. This way people have a lot of time to save up. Then you can send your wedding invites around 4 months in advance. That will remind anyone who may have forgotten!

I totally agree, just make sure to put "Invitation to Follow" on your save the dates, so people will know you'll be sending an actual invitation closer to time.

I think its ok as well. Your wedding is 10 months away and they would want to start making plans to come. So yea do it

We are getting married the day after you!! I sent some out just yesterday and a bigger batch went out about a month ago.

Go for it now. People get so busy that they will probably be happy to have the info sooner.

We are talking about sending our invite out before Christmas--have you talked about that part yet?

I think it is ok to send them out now. We sent ours out a year ahead so that people had a chance to save up money.

You can def send them out now. The more time people have to plan the better. Courtney is also getting married in May and she sent hers out. And Amy is getting married July 4, 2008 and she sent her's out as well. I say send them out! I got a SDT two months ago for a wedding in September 28, 2008. And this isn't even a DW! Send it out and start getting excited! smile29.gif

I think you SHOULD send them. The whole point is so that people don't plan another vacation and can save money. It's best to know as soon as possible.

I have not even thought about the Invites... I mean, have not even looked at ordering these yet! lol

I was thinking about sending these in early Jan, right after the Holiday craziness?

 

I sent him all of your responses... Just to show him that

I AM RIGHT! lol

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
