Timing on sending out of wedding invites

Recommended Posts

What timelines have you all used for sending out the wedding invites in order to get your RSVPs and final head count in time to make reception, cocktail hour, etc. decisions for a Palace wedding. I'm getting married @ Beach Palace on July 1, 2011, and believe I have to make the decisions on reception, etc 60 days prior. Thank you!

I'm getting married in Nov. I'm about to send my STDs out soon, def by the beginning of March. I'm planning on getting my invites out at the beginning of June with the RSVP date for Aug 5th ( 3 months prior to wedding) that way I have a final head count a month before i need to get all the final info to my wc.( 60 days out) Is this reasonable?

I'm doing mine way sooner because I want my friends and family to have some time to pay for their trip.  I am getting married January 28, 2012.  Save the Dates are going out this month and invitations probably in April.

I plan on sending my STD at least a year in advance. Invitations probably 2 months after. I am looking to have an April 2012 wedding and at the hotel I am looking at you can drop any unused reserved rooms 90 prior to your wedding. I'd like for everyone to have their travel booked by December the latest. :)

I am getting married in April2012 & just ordered my STDs. I plan on sending them out in April to have a years notice for family & friends to save for the trip. Then I will send out the invites about 3 months later(July) with RSVPs. The date of the RSVPs I am not sure of yet. But the 90 days is probably a good idea. Good call! Tks!

I am also getting married in April 2012. We are planning on sending our STDs as soon as we have our resort/dates picked out, which hopefully is soon. Then I didn't really know about the invitations, but July/Aug sounds like a good time.

Yea I know airfare comes out about 9-10 months in advance. So if we're doing an April wedding airfare will be out in Julyish. I want to give people the most time to book airfare and at the cheapest rate. Trying to be economical! :)

My wedding is April 21, 2012 - I've ordered my STDs and hope to have them mailed within the next few weeks to give my friends/fam plenty of time to plan and save...wasn't sure when to send out the invites, but from you ladies with April '12 dates, July-ish seems to be a good time :)

    • 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.
