    I agree with what the other ladies are saying... if you have the STDs ready now, go ahead and send them. I sent mine out last month for our April 2013 wedding. I wanted to give everyone plenty of time to save and plan for the trip. I included a magnet so they can keep it on their fridge and won't worry about losing a piece of paper. I included a link to our wedding website, so I had to make sure that was completed before sending the STDs, which honestly took more time than designing & preparing the STDs.

      Did you ladies include a pre-RSVP?  to get a rough count?

        I didn't. I simply am keeping in touch with everyone since we are only inviting 50 total to the actual wedding and they are family/friends we are in contact with on a regular basis.

            I included a pre-RSVP and sent a letter as well. In the letter, I explained that we were sending a tentative RSVP to help with our planning and we understood that their plans may change. I said a formal RSVP would be sent along with our Invitations. If you are interested, I can post pictures of what I sent (magnet, pre-RSVP postcard, letter).

              I have to say, I am running into more and more midwest brides lately. I think we all need a break from the crazy weather. ;)

                  Bride81 - here is the magnet that I sent. I ordered them through VistaPrint and got a great deal.
