He have opted not to do STD invites and will only send out formal invites 10 months prior to our wedding date.  However, we will include a wedding date reminder (STD) magnet with our formal invitations.  Since we are also putting together a wedding website, sending STDs just seemed like an unnecessary expense since we have a total of +/- 25 guests.  Even though most havenâ€t committed the exact date to memory, theyâ€re all well aware that we are getting married in May of 2013. Our RSVP is in February of 2013 which correlates with the date when we can cancel rooms in our room block without penalty.

We ended up sending a SDT with a PRE-RSVP so I get an idea of how many people are planning to attend so I know how many rooms to reserve at the resort. then my plan is to only send official invites to the people that rsvpd they were coming. I am getting surprised though people who I thought wouldn't be coming are attending.

ahh.. really?  :o( I have some family members and friends saying hurry up and send the invites!.. but yet I don't think they know we've decided on a date.  I figured it would be the best way for people to have no excuses of "Aww, I'm sorry I'd love to go but you didn't give me enough time to save" Although these people have known for months we are doing a DW, but I figured the invites would be "offical" 

 

When should I send them out? Or should I do a save the date (if we ever get our pics made) and then invitations a few months later?

What kind of invites are you doing?  And where did you get your magnets?  I love this idea, but have no clue where to begin to look.

Hey MissBubles!

 

My invites will be cymbidium orchid themed boarding passes. Regarding the magnets, I will be purchasing them from vistaprint.  You can can customize them anyway you want.  I'll be uploading my wedding logo:

We had an engagement party where we revealed the date 14 months in advance, So people had time to plan. Just sending out the STDs now (7 mo in advance) and then the invites in June( 4 mo in advance). When I started I wanted to get them out sooner rather than later, but life caught up to me and we postponed it.

Aww.. I wish we could have an engagement party! I hate living in a different state than my fiance. :o(

 

I'm afraid if I don't get mine out soon Im gonna obsess over them and change things and colors and fonts a million times.. lol I've completed my RSVP's (well minus the printing) and I lack one page on my passport invites (Bio thing for Atlantis) I told my FI that page is all his. We'll see how this goes.

    • 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
