    We had to do the first week of April because my best friend is a teacher and that will be her Spring Break. The cruise rate was a bit higher than other weeks (by about $100pp) and I expect flights to be a bit expensive also unfortunately, we'll see when the rates come out next month!

      Our wedding is April 7th 2012. I am going to send out my invitations in June of this year so everyone has enough time to book I hope airfare isn't going to be too crazy. I'm hoping between $300-$500. Obviously those who book closer to the date will pay more for airfare. But I won't worry about that :).

        How long of a time are you giving your guests to RSVP by? I am going to send out invites JuneJuly and am not sure when I should have my responses by. (Hoping that everyone does it too!)

          I was thinking of sending my invites out in mid-June.  But I have read on multiple posts here that people don't RSVP as often for destination weddings, so I was thinking to skip the formal RSVP and instead direct them to our website to RSVP and provide my phone number as an alternate.  Everyone I am inviting is close enough to us that I figure it is fine to be a little more informal.  Or is that tacky?

            That's exactly what we're doing Llia! I think its fine, as long as everyone has a way to contact you in case they don't have Internet like older relatives maybe. But phone would work in that situation!

              I am going to have September as an RSVP date. My family knows about the wedding and we sent out the STD's a year in advance. I have a wedding website but not sure if I am going to fill our every single section. My fianc© and I have known each other since elementary school and have been dating for 9 years so the history part of the website is redundant. Everyone knows our story :). I think we're going to do the regular RSVP. Is anyone putting their meal selection on their RSVP? I have to let my wc know before hand. It may be a long RSVP since I'm asking if they will be attending how many, where the will be staying and also their meal selection. So much for a simple yes or no lol.

                My TA told me that the 2 weeks before Easter and the 2 weeks after Easter are considered peak season and hotels and airlines raise their prices. That's why I advoided that time. Best of luck to all of you!!

                  Good luck with booking your trips ladies, I know for me it was a huge weight off my shoulders once everything was booked and confirmed. We sent out STD's in February which gave everyone 14 months notice, and we'll send out invites around September. I think we'll ask for people to RSVP by January-ish. Some of my family can only book their holidays three months ahead. It seems like it's so far away but hopefully it'll go by quickly!!

                    We avoided that week as well as prices are higher. Sending out invites July/august and not sure when our deadline will be.
