Hello Ladies-

Soooo I am thinking of skipping the save the date and just sending out invites since my original idea was to send out save the dates with a pre-rsvp for guests to return to get an idea of how many people are coming so we can reserve a block of rooms at the resort. I feel like its so early for the invite but since it's a destination wedding we need to give everyone plenty of notice. We will continue to update everyone on our website and I am thinking of sending a magnet with the date maybe call it a "date reminder" instead of a save the date since they will have the invite. Thought? comments?

Love that idea!!!! I was debating on the same thing...& hadn't thought of a "date reminder" magnet instead. I will most likely be doing that. Thinking invites about 14-12 months out, date reminders 6 months out, and travel packets 2 months out??

yeah we are planning on communicating via our website as far as reminders about travel and I am doing OOT bags to give them an agenda. I want them to have the magnet so they can always have it as a reminder. I'm thinking of having it say "save the date & start saving your money" or just "date reminder"since they are getting it a year early. lol

I love the magnets!! we are planning on using those as well. We are planning on sending our save the dates in May and our invitations in August for our Feb 2013 wedding. I will utilize our website a lot and can email guests from it, but I really wanted to give people as much notice as possible because of the expenses involved.

Ive seen a lot of brides sending std with an RSVP attached to it. Its a good idea to get a head count and also to give every guests enough notice and save money

We are deff doing a pre-rsvp and saying you will only get an invite if you pre-rsvp yes. We will still send out invites to the older folks who do not use the computer, but our invites are soo expensive, we think we will send out a thinner invite to the no's- or maybes...

Thanks for the ideas!!.. I'm wanting to get our invites out 12 months before the wedding. (May) We honestly have no idea who may and may not come. I too will send a "date reminder" 6 months before the wedding. Thanks for the Great Idea!!

We totally thought we'd send them out 2 year in advance but time flys! It's a great idea, although people say 1 year is a bit too far out...
