Save the Date's without exact information???

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I am new to all of this and came across this website while looking up some information/ettiquette for save the dates and a destination wedding...

 

My fiance and I are both teachers and so we do not have much option for our DW. Christmas/winter holidays, spring break, or summer... we have decided to go away over the Christmas/winter break. We will definitely be leaving after Christmas (boxing day or later as it is unfair to ask our guests to miss the holiday with their families) and we are still in the middle of choosing a loacation and specific date. At the same time we want to give everyone as much notice as possible so they have time to save money. Do any of you have suggestions as to how we can send out a save the date with so much unknown?

 

Also for some reason in my head my thoughts were that the travel/resort info would go in an invitation (to be sent out earlier than a regular home wedding invite) but from the little bit I have read on here is it really the save the date all of that info would go on and the invite is just like any other invite? If so is there some sort of pre-save the date that can be done just to give people a heads up? From my conversations with the TA it sounded like once we decide where we want to go people only have about a month to make a down payment to hold a spot... if that goes out in the invite it is not a lot of time, hence why I wanted to give a heads up before hand...

 

So confused... Thanks in advance for any help/info/advice...

i would say in your case, a pre-save the date would be the best option. maybe just a postcard saying something like "more info to follow, but please save the week of blahblahblah for the destination wedding of x and x." that way people know the basic who what when, and then as soon as you nail down the exact when and where you can send an official STD, later followed by the actual invite.

 

depending on how large your party is, i would send out a more official version of a pre-std, not just email or word of mouth. you want the guests to know its serious and its coming up, we're not just discussing it. so something printed. maybe using vistaprint or another less expensive/free postcard service?

Our STDs hardly had any info on them.  We knew about when we wanted to get married but didn't know the exact date as flight schedules weren't out yet, so all we included was the month (January 2012) and our resort.  When we sent them out we did have a date booked with the wedding planner at the resort, but didnt want to include it as we knew it might change (and it did).

Thank you for sharing your STD's! We also have no solid details and I would like to get the world out for our guests to start saving for our January 2016 nuptials. This information definitely helped.

Our deposit is only $50 and due within 30 days. Since it is refundable until 6 months before the wedding, my fiance and I decided to pay the deposit for each person to hold the space. We felt this gave us more time to get the information to our guests. We have given a verbal save the date to everyone, then we will send save the dates/invites once we have all the details.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
