Is 15 Months Too Early For STD's?

Recommended Posts

We gave 2 years notice (we are half way) and we are so amazed at how many of our guests are savin/have plans in place/have already booked their leave at work!

 

We were actually shocked that so many people are actively planning to come (we are still too far out to book mind you, so we will see when its time to put $$ on the line) but everyone has said that they were able to put all plans in place to come BECAUSE we gave them so much notice. Our invites are going out in January (10 months beofre the wedding) then as soon as people book we are sending them a 'thankyou note' and three months out we will send a little reminder to anyone that hasn't just in case they forgot :)

 

Thank god for Vistaprint!

Our wedding is also at Tensing Pen, Nov 2010. I just ordered our save the dates and plan to send them out mid Jan. I personally think you should wait a few months before sending them out unless you are absolutely sure who you are inviting. I know our guest list has changed by a few people since we booked in Sept! We told all the people we definitely wanted there as soon as we booked and the rest of the guests will get their STD's next month.

I agree...the more time the better people are able to plan. I'm getting married April of 2011 as well and if I knew of even a venue, I would send something now! But me and indecisive self...nothing *sigh*

I definitely know that I want to get married at Tensing Pen in April of 2011. People are already asking when they can put their deposits down! Especially since tax season is coming up (I know most of my family and friends do their taxes in January), I will be sending out my STD's next month while everyone has a little money in their pockets.

I might actually wait a little to do it. People get excited when they first hear about it and want to know info on booking. That far out the airlines, etc won't have pricing info. When they do have the info people won't be as excited. I know when we sent ours everyone wanted to know how much, how to book etc...

It's never too early- but don't be surprised if people want to do their own thing.

 

When we announced in December 2008 that we were getting married in October 2010 in Jamaica, people complained that they couldn't afford the trip. So, our wedding planner, DF and I decided to send out the invites in Sept 2009 with a detailed payment plan (Approx $75 a month) for those that have difficulty paying for the wedding in one lump sum.

 

Well guess what- people have decided they they will wait last minute and pay the lump sum!

 

This aggravated me because if this was their intention all along, then we could have wait until January 2010 to confirm everything/negotiate better prices for a October 15, 2010 in Riu MoBay.

 

So... don't be surpised if people do that. Just try and go with the flow.....

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
