Hi All,

 

My FI and I are planning a wedding in Costa Rica sometime in April 2015. We want to send the STDs out ASAP as to give our guests ample time(atleast 1 year) to prepare/save for the wedding. However, we havent decided on the exact resort (we are deciding between 2). We wanted to take a trip to Costa Rica sometime in the summer (the green season, to save some money). So, my question is: is it necessary to put the resort on the save the date. We wont be deciding on the resort until the summer, but I want to send the STDs within the next 2 months or so.

 

Some advice, please?

I think it is totally fine to send the save the dates without the resort.  Mine didn't have it on it, but it deferred to our wedding website where I listed it.  The only thing I would be concerned about is if you are putting a date, what happens if the resort you decide on isn't available then?  I also think its fine to say April 2015, but then be sure to send your invites well in advance.

I was thinking to put a deposit down for each hotel to secure the date, but these are non refundable! I think we will have to suck it up and go visit sooner than the summer so we can decide on the resort.

@MM2MJ this is less formal, but you could always send a save the date electronically….either by e card, or a designed email and just say Coming Soon! The wedding of ______&_______. May 2015 Costa Rica. More Information to follow

Then once you decide on the resort and date, send your paper save the dates via mail.

    I would wait until you have picked the resort! it's pretty important with cost and dates, if you pick a date then the resort doesn't have that date available the whole thing would be pointless.

    I am getting married in Jamaica in May of 2015. We have it narrowed down to three resorts but we are not sending out any STD'S until we have booked. We hope to book end of April beginning of May for our 2015 wedding. This way people will have at least 10-11 months to book time off and save. I think you should wait until you book with a certain resort before sending anything out.

      I know even putting the place on the STD I still had a ton of people asking me about the place and what the name was and everything, which was a bit stressful since I was still in the process of working out the group rates and everything. So, I think regardless of if you put it down or not people will ask and continue to ask until you decide. I definitely agree that putting the date down and having to switch it would be more of a concern of mine.

      I sent out save the dates without all the details. I wanted my guest to know what we were planning and to be able to save. We gave them a rough idea for cost $1,300 or under and a destination (Cuba) and we also put the month we were looking at (January)

       

      So I think it is totally fine for not putting all the details.  :)

      I would wait until you've decided just in case something pops up an plans have to change.
