    Well we did our save the dates a couple of months ago and using those as the form of invite before people start booking. We put our website on the save the dates as well which will have all the flight info. Plus we are pretty much in touch on a daily-weekly basis with everyone who will be going so have been answering travel questions that way. We will send out regular/official invites 3 months in advance as if it was an intown wedding, so hopefully most of our guests will have allready booked. At that time we will probably be sending out save the dates/invites to the AHR in March

Arg. We did send out save the dates though last fall, and all the booking info etc is on our website, so it's not like people are totally out of the loop or lacking information. But some people are not too Internet savy so don't seem to realize that they can find out everything they need on our website, or for whatever reason seem to be waiting for an "official" invitation before making their decision as to whether to come.

      Realistically I guess I will be sending my invites out sometime in May!
      I think a lot of our people are waiting for the "offical" invitation as well. We have posted tons of information on wedding website and we sent save the dates back in December but a lot of people have not booked yet but have verbally told us they are coming. I am hoping to send ours out at the beginning of June but I wasn't sure if that was too early or not, and it seems that is not. Thanks! :)

        So what have you girls been up to lately?

        I'm almost done my invitations as well as a "thank you for booking" letter with luggage tags for those who have booked already. I'm also almost ready to order my dress I think! It's a Blue by Enzoani called Caldera. I fell in love with it at least a month ago but have been dragging my feet on putting down a deposit because I wasn't sure I wanted to spend so much... well I'm still not sure, but every other dress I put on just doesn't compare. Hopefully someday my Mastercard will forgive me!!!

          Hello Everyone! I hope everyone had a good weekend.

          We have been very productive with our wedding planning lately. We ordered our inviations last week. I worked with Jessica from The Stylish Scribe and she was wonderful to work with. She created exactly what we wanted. I can't wait to see the finished product in a couple weeks. We also have decided on a photographer, we just need to put our deposit down on them and we bought some things for our OOT bags.

          Princess - I love that dress you are thinking of ordering. The skirt of the dress is beautiful!

            I was thinking of the December brides to be the other day when my 200 day mark until the wedding hit! Eeeek! Mid-June will be 6 months to go! I cannot believe it! I've been just getting little things here and there, a lot of my Etsy purchases have arrived and I love them all! My Mrs. hanger is adorable, I got really cute luggage tags made for my BM's and MOH, my palm fans arrived, I've discovered Vistaprint and made our postcard guest book instructions, return address labels for the postcards, an AHR banner, I could go on...my FI thinks I'm crazy with all these packages arriving!

            Kriztie - I love the StylishScribe! I wish I would have known about her before we did our invitations!

            And Angela - yay for finding such a gorgeous dress!

              Thanks girls :)

              Kriztie - who did you decide on for photography?

              Angie - how are you making your postcard guestbook? I definitely don't want a traditional guestbook, and was thinking about doing something with postcards to create a book, but wasn't quite sure what!

                We are putting two postcards in each guests OOT bag, with this instruction card...

                We will buy the postcards in Playa del Carmen, but will bring pre-made address labels for the ones being returned to us.

                  Oh, and then when we get home and get the postcards back, I'll put them into a cute scrapbook :)
