We sent save the dates with our website information and travel agents info in October of 2013 for our May 2015 wedding. ((We had payment plan option which required a initial per person deposit by Dec 2013)). Invitations went out July 15th of this year with a Dec 1 RSVP/final booking date..

 

Looking back I think sending the invitations in July was the dumbest decision ever, as we only recieved 30% of the RSVP's back...

At this point I'm almost finished with our e card save the dates for our September 2015 wedding. I'll be doing invites early next year. I really appreciate all of your feedback. It's been very helpful. :)

I sent out my save the dates in early November for our June 2015 wedding, which seems a lot later than most these brides, but virtually all the people who I knew would actually go already had our website and everything, and many were already booked before I sent them out (we also don't have a very strict booking deadline according to our travel agent, but now I'm starting to wonder if that's strange).  I also used Magnets from Magnetstreet.com so people who haven't booked yet would stick it on their fridge and have a constant reminder that they need to get booked!

We sent out STD in September for our July 2015 wedding. Our invitations are going out the first week of January. We picked that time because our room block expires at the end of March.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
