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!

    • 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
