This question is rather Canadian-specific because of the way our packages are structured. We're planning a wedding for Nov 2015, but we haven't set a date yet because the airlines haven't released their schedules that far out and I can't get rates yet. I don't want to pick a date and then find out that we could have saved a couple hundred bucks a person by going a week earlier.
My question is this: When do you send STD and Invitations? From what I've been gathering, once your travel agent blocks off the rooms, you usually have a month to put down a deposit, then three months or so to pay the balance? If we're booking a year out, do I send the STD cards with rough dates, then send the actual invitations a year out once we get the rates in place so that people can start putting their deposits down?
