    We are planning on sending our STDs out as soon as possible. The wedding is booked for December 5, 2012, and we are hoping to have the STDs out some time in September of this year. It seems like really far in advance, but I say the sooner the better for people to start saving! Especially when people that we assumed would be coming say that they cannot save the money in time (and we are still 16 months out!!). :) I think we then plan to get started on the invitations in January 2012, and have them out within a couple of months. It's your wedding, do what you want!!  I don't think it's rude or offensive to send them out early, so why not send them! Just make sure and say "Formal Invitation to Follow."

                Ladies,

                 

                In our case or shall I say the case of Moon Palace, Cancun you can only book your wedding date 1 year in advance.  Therefore, when we got engaged an once we narrowed down the resort & month (we were flexible on days within the month), we started telling family and friends that we were having a destination wedding.  When we travel we work with FI's TA whom he has worked with for years so we informally sat down with her and gathered all that we needed to begin telling people if they asked questions. 

                 

                I started building our website www.TheFutureWrights.com Password: NXNW309 (feel free to browse) so that once our STDs went out (created by Sarah from Sprouille Designs) they could immediately go the website for information.  This worked well for us!  So although our STD's were sent 1 year in advance (after a contrat was received from MP), people knew ahead of time.

                 

                Best of luck to you.

                  We are not getting married on a resort and we are sending save the dates with the dates we are going to be in Mexico for, and then we will have resort information on the formal invitations. So maybe our circumstances are a little different as we already have the venue booked.

So maybe our circumstances are a little different as we already have the venue booked.  We don't even have a resort narrowed down yet because the TA we are using thought we wanted this December, and was giving us prices, and then she realized we want December 2012, and we haven't heard from her again in almost 2 weeks. Comforting, right?? Lol. Luckily there's still a lot of time, so we will be looking at other TA options very soon.

                      Just sent out my S-T-D about two weeks ago and my wedding is on May 19 2012 could have sent out earlier but have been engaged for close to two yrs now and figured everyone knew the gist of it by now.  I used destinationweddings.com and the made the std at a cheap price and paid for postage.  Im getting a lot of compliments on them
