I sent out the STDs in January for our December wedding. I am planning on sending my invitations out very early, in May, because I really need a head count for budget purposes. MY RSVP date is June 30, 2009.

Mine just went out for my wedding that's a year away. I wanted to let my guests have enough time to plan and save up. I did a postcard and an email...The TA I'm using does it for you....I didn't get the boarding pass STDs I originally wanted but it was a lot easier to let them do it for me online. I have to take a picture of them and post it.

Typically we recommend to our brides that they send out save the dates for destination weddings about 1 year prior. This in most cases is ample lead time for your guests to begin to make arrangements.

My original plan was to give out our STD's at our engagement party and only mail to those who could not make the engagement party. Our engagement party was cancelled and our plans are on hold presently. Hopefully we will be back on track no later than sometime next month and I can mail them out, but what is the very latest, our wedding is 5/15/10. I also want to send invitations so when would I send those? Thanks for any advice.

I just sent out my STDs this past Saturday and plan to send out my wedding invites in January 2010. My wedding is April 25th, 2010. I would suggest sending out the STDs in the next 1-2 months to give your potential guests plenty of time to plan and budget for your wedding.

 

I've read a lot of stuff online that says you should send out the formal invites 6-8 weeks before the wedding, but I'm not sure that applies to a destination wedding. Just my two cents.

I would send them out ASAP. There is no harm in giving people lots of notice. I'm getting married in January 2010 and I sent my wedding invitations in June 2009. We actually were getting frequent calls from my MIL since Feb asking "wheres the invites?"!

 

I also set up a wedding website and that allowed me to update/inform my guests in an inexpensive and quick way. Good luck with your planning.

Hey we are date twins!

 

I would send out the STD ASAP. We created a website as well and included that with the STDs which i mailed out in July and August (my mom took forever to get the addresses for her side). Since then rates have come out and i have emailed ppl that i know for sure are coming with the rate information and put it on the website. I plan to send out the invites beginning of Jan with an RSVP of March 1, to avoid the holidays so ppl dont forget.

My wedding date is a few days after yours, and I just sent out my STD's which had location and TA info with them. I did have quite a few people freaking out though about prices, dates etc. Now, I am planning on sending out our invites next week, as I want people to know more details is: when the deposits on the group bookings are due!

 

If you are not booked like that through a tour operator or whatever, then I would say you would be able to relax a little more. Otherwise, I think it is a good idea to let people know when they have to be booked/have deposits down well before the date passes by..

 

Good luck!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
