    I know there have been several posts on invitation timeline but I reeeeally would love some feedback on mine.


    Wedding Date: April 21, 2017


    April 21, 2016 - Electronic STD linking to our website with location, date, time details

    Aug 21, 2016 - Physical invites

    Jan 14, 2017 - After holiday e-reminder ("It's cold, join us in Jamaica")

    Jan 21, 2017 - RSVP due

    April 21, 2017 - The BIG Day


    Thoughts or input?  I have my RSVP due 3 months before so I know how many things I need to purchase for favours, bags etc. My OOT bags will be given out prior to travel, due to logistical issues, so I need to know before hand.


    Thank you!

      We are twins on our dates! You are more on top of things than me. I'm sending STD monday. Maybe invites August sounds good. I would love to hear more opinions!

      Your timeline looks pretty good to me. STDs usually do go out about a year in advance so that's ok. What about your booking deadlines? Are you going to put that anywhere, or is that the RSVP? Maybe on your wedding website?


      The one thing I will caution you about.... is the RSVP. Don't pin too much on that date. It's almost a guarantee that you will be chasing people down. If you look through the various threads here, all the ladies have had the same issue. Not sure why, but there are people that just don't respond to an RSVP. I don't know why. You could use it as a guide. Is your RSVP going to be attached to your August invite? Is there a worry that people might lose the RSVP if the invite is going in August and the RSVP isn't due until January? Just a thought....


      Good luck!

      I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

        @amberguesa My fiance and I have decided to elope. Since I already paid for the greenvelope.com for 40 STDs I was wondering if you'd like to have it as a gift for my date twin :)? I can just delete all of my info, make the password generic and pass it on to you. Let me know if you'd be interested.

              @Mangosong I wanted mine to be sent out a year in advance but I had a couple issues come up so things got a little delayed. But from what I have read 9-12 months in advance is fine to send out the STDs for a destination wedding. Reading that made me feel so much better.
