We are going to send ours out very soon. We are getting married Sept 25 2009 and our trip is booked and we have 23 guests who have paid their deposits. We know that quite a few others will also be attending and booking on their own later and we know of some who are on the fence. We want to send out STDs to everyone who has expressed interest in attending so they can start planning and saving. I think the rules change a little for destination weddings and it's smart to send them out as early as possible.

We sent ours out 11 months before the wedding. And plan on sending out the invites 4 months before the wedding. I think it is a great idea to have yor resort booked before, they way if you are using a TA, you can include her info

You should send the STD's out after you have confirmed and booked your wedding location. You want to give people as much time as possible, but you should have the resort booked for your date before sending them out. 11 months is definitely not too early as flight and resort pricing should be available now.

just wondering how far in advance you all are sending your STDs and invitations, and when you are asking for your RSVPs back...

 

i wanted to send my STDs from mexico when we go to find our site so that they are postmarked in MX and with mexican stamps, but that would be about 12 months before our wedding date (which is still TBD). is this too soon??

 

any thoughts would be great...

 

thanks!

A year in advance is not too soon. I think the more notice you give your guests the better it is for them. A DW is like booking a vacation after all. Although it would be really nice to send hand written save-the-dates on Mexican postcards w/ Mexican stamps don't feel pressured to send anything out if you haven't finalized a date or place!

 

I am getting married in in Negril in November & I am sending out my invitations this month.

No I do not think that is too far in advance. I wanted to give my guests as much notice as possible, we sent ours out a year before and then followed with more formal invites about 2 months prior to the date! I sent out my AHR invites at the same time, I was lazy and just wanted everything out then!

thanks for the feedback, ladies! in a perfect world, we will be able to nail our location and date when we go on our site visit - only then would i mail them out. i'm not too concerned though, because i will probably still have the STDs sent from mexico - depending on how reliable my WC (who - like our date and place, still TBD!) is. i read that little tip in a magazine: to just send it all down to MX and have your WC or hotel send them out.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • 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!
