    Save money on stamps too! :-)

      That's right!  Something I've realized through this process is that while it's really hard to keep total cost down, it's a lot easier to make trade offs.  Like one less round of stamps for a nicer invitation.

        I think we are behind the 8 ball on this.

         

        We are planning to send the STDs out in early January (we have someone designing them for us) and then the invites in March/February.  This is for a June wedding in Mexico.

         

        We have an idea of who will attend, so not stressing too much.  But we are just sending STDs with no RSVP to everyone.

          Catgirl - I don't think you should consider you pace behind, it is a far more traditional timeline. I wish I could have that timeline but the AI requires 50% 6 mo in advance so I had to up the anti and put p pressure

            Thanks.  I spent some time reading the boards last night and started working myself up since the wedding is in June and we have done...not that much.  Just nailed down the location/resort and locked in the room rates.

             

            We decided to skip the STDs since most people know its a destination wedding and are opting to send the invites in January instead with an RSVP timing of March.

              Catgirl that sounds like a good plan. Also of you want to be able to give information to you guests sooner than January or update quickly use a wedding website, mine is wedding wire or a private Facebook group.

                We are planning to send an e-mail/newsletter with the info in advance of the invitations.  Not the best plan, but based on timing it will have to do.

                    I am bound by giving the CL  a count 90 prior to sailing so I must get out my STD and get back RSVP early as well.

                    Good thread, I have been starting to wonder about the same things.
