This may be a silly question but... When do you actually mail your wedding invitations? I am mailing my STD's this week, 8 months before the wedding. I read that here on this website, but I can't find anything on invitations. Thanks!!

I mailed my STD about a year out so people started thinking about it, and then as soon as our details were all figured out I finished my invites and mailed them with the wedding info as well as the AHR info. (about 7 months prior). We wanted everyone to have as much time and notice as possible.

However, we are finding that hardly anyone has RSVP'd for the AHR since the invite went out so long ago. We should have done a seperate invite for the AHR.

I am now sending an EVITE to remind everyone to RSVP..maybe a little tacky to do that tho!

We sent out our STD's 11-12 months before the wedding then created a website and sent travel info. I plan to send out formal invites in the beginning of March ( 4 months before).

I sent my STD's out 10mths prior and am planning on sending my invites in feburary, soo7 months prior.

At this point, I think you should send your invites as soon as possible.

Thanks for all the help! I think I am behind, when I get all of my resort details finalized, which should be early next week I will order my invitations.

I don't think you're behind. I sent my STDs out in September which was 9 months before the wedding but I still haven't sent out my invitations yet. They're ready to go but since most of my people have already paid their deposit the invitations are just a formality. I think I'll send them this week though.

We sent our STD's 7 months before the wedding and then we actually aren't sending invitations because we already know who is coming to Mexico because they have booked. In lieu of invitations we are sending a pre-travel package with a letter, brochure and luggage tags!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
