@Stay at home mommy:  I suggest you get some save the dates cards made, you can these these done quite cheaply on Vista or other printng websites.  Also see what other Destination Wedding brides are doing in this board area.  I sent out Save the dates 12 months before ours, also you could make a website with all details and get people to either rsvp to your website or send out formal invites. I wouldnt book and pay for people until you have a clearer idea of numbers.

I would call them up personally. For a destination wedding it doesn’t sound like it’s too many people and you need a definitive answer right away. They might not have an answer right then and there, but at least you’ll have made contact. In a couple weeks, closer to the booking date, call them up again to confirm.

The travel agent that I’m working with will make a pamphlet or brochure for me to send with my save the dates. Depending on how they look, they might be the save the dates themselves. All of the travel agent’s info will be on it so my guests can book the trip themselves through her and I’m not on the line for $200 per person. I will also create a website and give all my guests the info so that they know exactly what is going on and how much the trip will be.

I would suggest calling or when seeing them letting them know you’re planning a destination wedding.

I sent out save the dates with the link to our wedding website. I had all the information regarding rates and booking information.

It is too early for formal invites.  I’d call people up who are interested. I think it will be hard to get a proper count within this deal period honestly.

I’m also getting married the first week of December and I’m having a Destination Wedding. I mailed my invites out at the 6 month mark, but we also mailed out STD’s about 14 months in advance. I would go ahead and mail out the formal invites now to give your guests plenty of notice. Since its a Destination Wedding and people will need to take time off work, book flights etc it’s not too early. Next week you’ll be at the 5 month mark! Good luck! 🙂
