  • Wedding: May 2015


torie.strampe:    Hello! We are getting married May 01, 2015 in DR. Engaged April 20, 2014: informally informed everyone May 01, 2013-May 30, 2013 that it would be a destination wedding: October 01, 2013 sent STD’s: July 15th 2014 sent invites!  I think your in the clear sending them immediately following the new year! With the upcoming holidays your invite is bound to get thrown in with the unread/unopened holiday cards! 🙂 congrats and good luck!

I would send them in November. I’m doing a domestic destination, and hotel rooms in our block need to be booked 90 days out or more or they’ll be released, so I’m sending ours 4 months in advance (save the dates will go out 10 months in advance). Plus, people should know if they’ll make it to your destination wedding in March before the holidays.

I would definitely send them in November… you can’t go wrong by sending them out sooner, and people will be waiting for a definite invite before they book hotels.. if you wait till after the holidays that’s only giving them 2 1/2 months notice to book their flights/trains or whatever and hotel.. that’s not really enough time in my opinion 🙂

We’re getting married in my home country, which happens to be different from the FI’s and where many of our guests will be. So we’ve just decided to skip the STDs and send out the invites 8 months in advance. But we do have a lot of special travel arrangements needed.

I would definitely send the invites out in early November if I were you. So that they don’t get lost in the Christmas craze!
