OFFICIAL NOW Jade Wedding Thread

Recommended Posts

Emma, Dean & Gonzalo are both great, I think.  They have slightly different feels to their wedding images.  My personal style gravitates more towards Gonzalo, but I don't think you could go wrong either way.

Can anyone let me know what they did in this situation?

 

Also for timing of invites - I think they want rough #'s at least 45 days in advance, so I was thinking of sending out the invites and asking for a reply (with meal preferences) with a deadline of at least 2 months prior to the wedding date. I'm sure there's a bit of added flexibility for people who book last minute though?

for the people who already said they couldnt attend i dont think i would send them invites.. maybe just save the dates with one of those little saying.. but then again if they already said no maybe dont send them anything? im not too sure... as far as what you said regarding invites... we have to put meal preferences?? The guests cant just decide once tey arrive? I hate the thought of asking people what they want to eat so early in advance

We had to send all of our guests an email with the early booking prices to start off with. We've decided that for those that have already paid their deposit we will send them a save the date in the next month or so. Our wedding will be 8 months away but we are doing this to provide our guests with our wedding website and give them the opportunity to leave posts/ask questions/get excited!! If other guests choose to book with us over the next 6 months we will send them a save the date also. We are going to send our formal invite out 3/4 months prior to departure. For those that aren't going to be able to attend we will most likely just send them a formal invite only. I feel as though that way it is a courtesy in the event they are able to book but we aren't bombarding them with mail (knowing they aren't able to make it)

I'm actually not sure! I thought I had read somewhere they need to know how many of each entree in advance, but I'm skimming through all the documents I have now and I can't seem to find it again. I agree, it would be much easier to not have to ask in advance!

Our wedding is October 19th.  We sent out Save the Dates about 1 year in advance.  We blocked 20 rooms with our travel agent and they were blocked until June 9th.  With that, we are guaranteed a certain rate for rooms.  So, I sent out our invitations about a month ago, which was about 7 months before the wedding.  That gives them enough time to research stuff, save money, and book their rooms.  I figure, if you don't know if you can go to Mexico 3-4 months in advance, you probably aren't going to go.  Just think, you can never give people too much time to save :)

No, they need to know 45 days in advance.
