Exact wedding date on invitation ? HELP !

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone !

 

I couldn't find a thread that chatted about this so I started one :)

 

My FI and I have booked Melia Las Dunas, Cayo Santa Maria, Cuba for the week of April 6-13th, 2012. Very excited ! However, we have still to get confirmation of the exact date and time of our wedding ceremony. We are ready to order our invitations but need this information. Our TA told us that normally you put your departure date on the invitation since the wedding date could change. I think that makes sense, but Im not totally convinced !
 

What did you guys do ?

 

Thanks so much !!

Danielle

We are getting married in January 2012 and in January of this year we sent out our save the dates.  We chose to only put the month, January, rather then a specific dates, which I'm really glad we did as our departure date changed and we had to change our wedding date.  We haven't sent out our invitations yet, and I'm not even sure we will as everyone has either told us yes they are coming or no they arent.  I guess its what you feel comfortable doing.

Hi Kay !

 

Thanks for your answer ! And congrats on your wedding !

 

We also sent out our STDs with only the month (April 2012). But now, as we are getting ready to send out our invitations, which will include an insert with all the details (TA, deposit, websites, travel dates..), we don't know what to put down as a date. I don't think I'm comfortable putting down the departure date, nor the travel dates... I think I'll wait for an answer from the WC.

 

Thanks !

that's funny, I'm waiting for everything to be ok'd by the resort before I send out the invites. I was told the departure dates can change by various TAs. But, that's my situation, planning a wedding for this August. I think if you are planning a year or so in advance, the rough days of travel are good enough.

I waited until I got a confirmation from my resort, which I am glad I did. I originally wanted April but had to go with May. I put our confirmed date on our STDs because I felt that my guests could then decide on how long & what exact days they would like to come for.

I would definitely wait for the right date for the official invitations.  You are still more than a year away so IMO it's better to wait than risk having to resend the invitations or inform everyone of the exact date via other means.

Yes, I agree you should wait for the confirmation back from the resort. You won't know for sure what times are available if any for the days you have in mind until it has been confirmed. But your doing good by booking your wedding date early because you are more likely to get the date and time you really want :)  I say don't listen to the TA with the 'destination/travel dates'. Your guests need to know the exact date and time of the wedding; they may want to arrive the day before and leave a week later or get there early and leave the day after or get there the day before and leave the day after. We don't know what they have in mind or whats more affordable/convenient for when they want to travel and personally I think it won't make them feel like they have to stay the same length of time, leave when you leave and get back when you get back. They may rule the whole wedding trip out if they assume that they can't go because they can't leave the same day or stay the same length of time. So, I say wait on the confirmation.  Getting the confirmation letter is exciting and you will want to share the exact date and time, once its set and final :)  Congrats in advance and happy planning!!!!

We waited until we got the resort to confirm our date and time. 

 

Our departure dates HAVE changed, but not our wedding date.  So we are still good with the dates on the invite, and all we had to do was update the departure/return dates on our website.

I wouldn't put the departure dates, as not everyone may want to come on that day e.g. come two days later a day earlier etc.

    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
