I just got an e-vite from my travel agent with all the info for people to start reserving their seats. I have to e-mail them out today or tomorrow. The guests have 90 days to put down a deposit (I'm telling them 80 for all the procrastinators out there). The e-vite says that a formal invitation will follow. My question is, how soon should I send the formal invitations? I am working on them already as they are DIY but is it still too soon if the wedding won't be until August 2015? Or do people need their invites sooner because it is a destination wedding? We're not putting a lot of information on them, other than the ceremony info, but they have our website where everything else will be.

As soon as I had the dates and resort info down, I sent out e-vites that linked to my wedding website. The formal invitations can wait (or even skip?!) as the main goal here is to get the info out as soon as possible so that your guests have the most notice you can give them.

 

I will send out formal invites to my at home reception, which will go out 5-6 months before the event. :)

I sent out my save the dates 11-12 months in advance with my wedding website listed on it.  All the info is on the website but im still going to send out formal invites at maybe 7 months.  My resort needs a definitive head count and they also need to know what people will be eating for the reception :unsure:

I know some websites have RSVP available on the site but i have too many people who aren't computer savy for that so i need to send out invites.

My website is "done" although I seem to keep making changes here and there haha. I need to stop but I guess it's the procrastinator in me! People can see it already but I keep adding things. I did gave them a warning that I'd be updating it as I go so to keep checking back lol. We will be sending our invites probably in the middle of July right in time for our Aug 19 deposit deadline. So it would all be a year before the wedding :) and then I can start the real planning.

I sent out the save the date as soon as we booked the hotel, and then sent out invites 4 months in advance giving everyone who hadn't booked yet, 2 months to book or rsvp. there is still a month left after that before the deadline, I wanted to make sure there was enough time so i wasn't rushing to round up people!

Our final payments are due on October 15, so making the RSVP on the formal invites the same. To Prevent too many dates to remember. So should I send invites out 4 months before October or the actual wedding date ? I was thinking the end of August. Then people won't forget with all the summer fun going on and be more organized. Really I know who is coming and who isn't already.....

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
