My fiance and I are getting married in March of 2010 in Key West during our cruise on the Carnival Freedom. I opted to not send out save the dates and sort of just told people about our plans. I want to send invitations out with information to give everyone plenty of time to save. I was thinking of sending them in August. My mother seems to think that's too early, but I want to give people different payment options. Also, what sort of information did you include with your invites? I'm trying to do mine on my own and make a booklet sort of like this one. I was going to have the invitation, the cruise schedule and wedding events schedule, reservation and rates information, as well as travel requirements. What do you think? I would love to see what everyone else has done! Thanks!

congrats and welcome!
I'm guessing u meant march 2011??
I think ou're idea is great and including as much info as possible is great, but not overwhelming them with info!
We passed on the STD's too, since everyone needed as much time as possible to book and save given the distance! but we feel the need to include as much info on the invites as possible, we looked into passport style invites but couldn't fit it into our budget in the end, so we are swayed o do traditional invites and jazz the up with starfish etc.... however we will include inserts with TA details and booking instructions for those not booked instead of doing 2 separate invites!! Ok, Im rambling now but there is lots of options for you to do, look into what you really like!
As for the time frame, it is completely up to you? Im doing mine 6 months out and thats us traveling fro scotland to mexico and also some guests from the US too.... but we have booked mostly 14 months out.... with some who will take it to the wire, family just thing it is a formality to do invites!!
