I have already decided where my wedding will be and have the date for reception and church locked in.  I am not having my wedding at a resort so have not choosen one yet.  I want to pick one based on resort quality as well as price, however I can not get pricing info yet since my wedding is in Dec. 2011.  Is it ok to send out a save the date already with date, destination, and travel agent info, and wedding website only not the resort people will stay at?

 

I want people to have plenty of time to save and plan and in reality in my situation people are able to choose any resort they want. 

 

 

Any feedback is appreciated!

I don't think that's unreasonable. Some people will ask right away about the resort so it might be wise to have a budget in mind for where you might stay. As long as you give people 8 months notice about what resort you've chosen that should be fine. The more notice you give about where it is, the sooner people start saving.

The only info on our STD was our names, date,  Jamaica, and our website.  We had resort info on our website but if you don't have the info yet it should be fine.

save the dates should be simple and give the basic info which you have.  It's OK to just put the island and not the resort yet.  I had the resort but not the booking info and just put a note on my website that says "more info to come" or something like that.  At least this gives people the opportunity to plan time off from work, childcare and approximate cost.

Seems to have worked fine.  I sent out my save the date last week with that info and I a request for a tentative response that they needed to make on our website and we already have 10 yes response.  Now that I am pretty sure I picked the resort that I want people to stay at I am going to put the information for the resort on the website so they can take a look at it even though we will not be booking yet.

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
