@kmk2016 I plan on sending my STD's in March:) I think it's just the excitement of it all. @Mangosong that's a great timeline. I think the key is to allow people time to plan and save.

My wedding is a day before yours. I sent out my STD a few months ago and then plan to send the invites and thank you for booking in November. I'm requesting to RSVP by January as that's when the TA requested payment. That gives me time to plan for the number of guests.

I have been wondering the same thing.  We sent save the dates about 10 months before (after already emailing or talking to our guests) and only a handful have booked.  I was planning to send the invitations out early next year.  However I just found out the last day to drop rooms in our room block with out being penalized is 2/21/2015, so I now want to get the invitations out in November so we don't get stuck with extra rooms.

@MrandMrsBonitto2016 Thanks! I figure, unlike the invite, if I send a newsletter type thing, when someone loses it, because you know one person will, it'll be super cheap (or free!) to snail mail them another copy or e-mail them in PDF as opposed to the actual invite.

I am wondering the same thing. Our wedding is 5/15/15. I was thinking I would try to get the invitations out by Nov. All of our guests got STD's back around July. The guests that are planning on attending have pretty much already verbally RSVP'd (although we are still sending them invites) Is Nov fine for a May wedding?

I sent invites in May for my January wedding. I didn't do STDs. I think November is great :)

Hahaha- we got a great price with our TA and made our RSVP date the same as our booking deadline. We then made sure people understood that the price was only for the first 50 people who booked (as per contract) and people just did it... Turned out our TA managed to keep the pricing held for our additional guests who booked by the booking deadline even though we were well over our 50 people! We have 82 now! (Late tricklers).

I'm totally type A and everyone knows it- so I think everyone just knew to book early and save me the stress. We were blown away by the love and excitement shown by our family and friends.... We had hoped for 40 people- 80+ is surreal!

We did STD's in May with a deal that ended Sept 5th. We have had 40 people book and we will be sending out proper invitations in November for our May wedding with an RSVP date in March as that is when payment is due.

    I sent the STD a year before and the invitations 6 months before. I think the earlier the better
