Is 15 Months Too Early For STD's?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering because I tried to organize a "Family & Friends Jamaica Trip" a couple of years ago. I gave over a years notice, contacted the resort and arranged for an awesome group rate. Contacted the airline and arranged for a group rate...set up a payment plan with people for something like $75 a month...set up a google cart on our online website so people could even make deposits with credit/debit cards...sent out monthly customized "magazine" type mailers. Soooo many people were on the bandwagon to go and wouldn't you know they all bailed?! So, now with my wedding planned for April 2011, I want to send out STD's in January which will give everyone 15 months notice to save like $60 a month. FI and I are paying for everyone's first night at Tensing Pen as well as something on the Catamaran, so I want to know if sending STD's in January is too early?

I think that they more notice you give, the better it is for your guests. I'm giving 12 months notice, but I certainly would've given more if it was possible.

I agree with debbmach. The more the better. There will be some people that get on board and then bail, but I think that knowing that it's your wedding will be a bit different than just a fun trip with everyone.. a GOOD excuse to go on vacation (although this is definitely not how you should sell it). Send 'em out! Congrats!!

i don't think it's too early, BUT don't be surprised if people still bail. everyone is on board at first and they get wrapped up in the excitement, but when the time comes, some people will just not go for various reasons.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
