I was hoping to get my STDs out a year before, but that was last week. We are still working on them, so hopefully 11 months. The invitations I plan on about 6-7 months prior.

We sent out the STDs about a year before our wedding date. Then, we sent out invitations about 10 months before the wedding, and will ask guests to RSVP about 6 months before the wedding. We did this all electronically (no paper invites), so it was easier and less stressful for us.

We just sent out our STD last week (wedding on 2.11.12), and they directed people to the website we created where we are having everyone RSVP.  We just let everyone know to finalize their RSVP by September 15, so 5 months before the wedding.  

 

I am expecting some stragglers to come in, but hoping not.  I created a Facebook page, since almost all guests are on there (isn't everyone nowadays..) and will bully people on there if we need people's response  embarrassed.gif   

 

We have to get place settings, OOT bags, and everything else figured out, so I guessed that would be enough time for me to get my stuff done, and give people enough time to save and see if they will be able to afford to come. 

 

I think it more depends on how many people you are inviting..we only expect around 35, so not too stressful!

Thanks for the info. I was trying to figure out when to send out my invite. I'm hoping to get out my STDs by the end of the month...wish me luck! :)

I mailed our STD's in Feb for our December wedding. I'm thinking about sending the formal invitations out in early August with an October 1st RSVP date so I know exactly who is coming and who is not. I don't want any surprise last minute guests showing up that are not accounted for!  cheesy.gif

I sent my STD's about 10 months in advance, with our website on them and our TA's contact information.  By now, everyone has already put down their deposit for our destination wedding. 

 

I'm thinking of sending out our formal invites in the next few weeks (wedding Jan 2012), but was wondering about the importance of RSVPs?  Seeing as they've paid their deposit, I assume that they're coming...and a few have RSVPd on our website.  I was thinking of using the RSVP section of our invites as a schedule of events to list the welcome dinner, excursion, ceremony times, etc.  Do you think I should still include an RSVP for formality or is it just a waste seeing as they've already made their commitment via a deposit?

I was thinking  9 months for STDs and 6-5 months for formal invites with the RSVP required at 3 months before. If you give people too much time they think they have plenty of time and then forget to RSVP. Plus most of our guests will be coming from

Florida, and trips to the Bahamas are common now-a-days.

    • 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.
