How far in advance should you send out STD cards for an overseas wedding(we are from Australia and are looking into Fiji)? is 12 months too long? or long enough?
from there when should the actual invites be sent with the RSVP..? and how long should you give people to RSVP?

We are having a destination wedding also. I just sent out my std, I sent them 11 months before the wedding. You want to be able to give everyone enough time to save up for your wedding.

We’re doing a destination wedding with more than half of our guests flying from US to Boracay and the other half is flying from Manila to Boracay,Philippines. We were originally planning to send out save-the-dates 10 months before the wedding but decided to skip it and we just sent the invitations instead. Yep, invitations 10 months before the wedding! haha. I think save-the-dates would be good 10 months before as guests will have to plan their budget and work leaves ahead. Then invitation about 5 months before the wedding coz by then they would know whether they can go or not. Then RSVP about 3 months before coz for sure if they’re really planning to go they would need to start booking flights and hotels soon. I got our wedding guests to RSVP 6 months ahead. If you’re planning from Australia for your wedding in Fiji, you wouldn’t wanna cram with the preparations. I’m 3 months away from my wedding and all my major wedding preparations are finished! Still working on some details but you’d plan better if you get your guest count early since destination weddings can be difficult to organize. Best of luck! 🙂

1 year in andvance for out of town guests or destination wedding is appropriate so they can plan their vacation accordingly and look for flight/hotel deals too..
