On the website i included estimated prices, that state they will be finalized in the near future. The website also has the RSVP and commonly asked questions.

 

I had my STD and lists of my side completed and was just waiting on a final list. Most guests appreciate the early notice (even without a date) so they can start saving money if they want to come!

From reading these posts, I don't think I'll wait to send out my save the dates.  I was going to wait until a year before the wedding to send them out, but now I think I'll send them out as soon as I make them!

hey Kellykanester! We are also getting married at Dreams Cancun! I'm looking into sending STDs now. I was just wondering how you found the template on ping? Do you mind sharing with me? :)

We sent our STDs out just under two years in advance. We wanted everyone to have time to save. We are going to send our invites about 6 months before the wedding. On our STD we included the date, resorts, country, and website.

Hi ladies,

 

We really wanted to ensure our guests had the most time to save up/think about coming with us. We are getting married January 9th, 2013 in Playacar, Mexico. We ended up drafting an electronic STD that included the week we had chosen and our location in the Mayan Riviera (at the time, we were still negotiating the resort information etc). We wanted to send it out to get an idea of head count for our TA, this really helped to get us what I believe in the end to be an EXCEPTIONAL one week AI rate for a beautiful hotel (1225/pp for one week). We ended up going with the Iberostar Queztal in Playacar.. Although its not uber fancy like some of the other hotels on this site, we wanted something that had a little bit of everything because we have such a wide range of ages coming with us. We made the right choice as we now have 71 people who have placed a deposit to join us.

 

I will definitely be sending out formal paper invitations as I sell fine paper for a living and would be hung at high noon if I went 100% digital! haha, although we know how much some people appreciate receiving a formal invite. I say, even if you don't know your exact date sending out the STD as soon as you know location and general departure info really helps to get a good idea of who will be able to come...

I also sent my STDs 16 months out. It had the date, resort and wedding website info on it. I will send reminder cards 6 to 8 months out to those who have not RSVP'd.

How far in advance is everyone sending their invitations? And how much time is everyone leaving between the response date and the actual wedding date? I think about 3-4 weeks is the norm for "standard weddings" but I need to get my planning form back to the resort 45 days before the wedding ~ and SO much of what we are going to do depends on how many people are going to come.

My STDs were my invitations because I only sent them to the people I wanted to come. On the STDs I instructed people to RSVP through our wedding website. I made the response date 5 months before the wedding to "encourage" people to RSVP early or at the very least this will give me a good count of who's coming. I will also send out reminder emails and postcards to those that haven't at the 6 month mark.

    • I and my partner are going to get married on August 12th. We met each other through a lesbian dating website. Both of us want that day to be a memorable day. We are in confused on which dress to wear for the wedding ceremony. Any suggestion on lesbian wedding dress? I prefer white, whereas my partner prefers of-white. Which one do you think will look good? Should we go for same dress or different one? Share your thoughts.
