I have read through many invitation and STD threads but cannot find the info I'm looking for...
I have been working on my invitations and cannot figure something out...
I would like to send invitations out 6 months in advance (I am sending out STDs soon, about 11 months in advance) but I don't think I will know which travel agency I will be going with yet. Speaking to many people, they got their best quotes about 4-5 months in advance, and they got great quotes by pinning various travel agencies against each other, going back and forth with better prices.
SO... if I do wait to find that out and get a great quote, I will have to make my invitations REALLY quickly to send them out and give people some time to put down deposits on the group rate. I don't know if this will be feasable. Most quotes are valid for about 30 days, and I'm making about 60 invites on my own.
My other option is to send out invitations without specific travel info just letting people know that I will contact them when a good quote becomes available.
What did you guys do? Should I wait to get a good quote and make my invites as fast as possible, giving people only about 2 weeks to put down deposits, or should I send out invites without specific travel info? (If it's without travel info, I don't really know what the difference is between them and the STDs, lol).
Any insight would be GREATLY appreciated, thank you! Sorry for the long-winded post!
