    Hey everyone, I'm in need of some advise.


    My wedding is not until April 2017 but I already have my venue booked...therefore I have the location, date and time. The dinner is buffet style, so there are no menu options to pick from. I'm just wondering, if I have all of this info, should I just do the invite and call it a day? Is it too soon to send the invite? I'd just like to avoid extra money on another item (STDs) if I don;t have to.


    Thanks so much for the feedback!

    Electronic save the dates may be a good option for you. I used greenvelope.com and it was really reasonable. They have cute design choices and we were able to add our logo and even a song.

    @RoxRoy2015 I would skip save the dates, that's what I did. We had all of our info within a month of being engaged. Since our deposit deadline was pretty soon after we booked we just sent out electronic invites through paperless post and to be honest I think our guest appreciated the early notice and all the info.

        @RoxRoy2015 This is what I love about destination weddings, there simply no traditions required. you definitely do not need the Save the date! go ahead and avoid the costs and go straight to invitations, just like the other ladies suggested.

          I am considering doing a Save the Date/wedding invite all together with loads of information. We plan on keeping to wedding pretty small so sending out Save the Dates and having everyone book their hotel and flights early and then sending out formal invites a few months prior to the wedding just doesn't make sense to me LOL! Plus it will cut costs and ensure everyone who is definitely coming to get their deposit down on the hotel early so my fiance and I can budget accordingly.

            I think it will be too soon for invitation as your wedding is on next year. For wedding invitations use electronic wedding card which are cheaper and good and highly preferred these days as it saves time and money. Social media can play a best role in this.

              I have never heard of greenvelops before - that seems like a super neat idea :)
