I’m confused, are you wanting less people to attend (if you’re trying to keep costs down) or more?

@msbriezyb:  Oh, ok with the way that you directly followed it up with wanting to keep costs under control, I thought perhaps you WANTED to give short enough notice that people wouldn’t be able to swing it.  (I totally did this to my “weird uncles from far away”.  Didn’t send them a STD at all, just an invite 6 weeks out… oh darn, you can’t make it on such short notice?)

Yeah, i think a year for STD’s is a good amount of time.  There aren’t a lot of people that I would travel very far to their wedding, but if it was someone that I would if I had enough time to save up and make arrangements, then yeah, a year is good.

@SapphireSun:  I can’t help but wonder if my cousin did this to us! No one knew they were planning a wedding so soon after getting engaged (married within 6 or 8 months I think) and the wedding is in mid-April & we get invites at the end of Feb. lol I couldn’t afford to drive or fly 4 states away anyway so I don’t care either way but I can’t help but think they did it on purpose lol

My fiance and I are from MD also!! We are looking to do a destination wedding in Naples/Ft. Myers FL at the end of March 2014.  We leave in 3 weeks for a planning trip to pick a venue and get alot of the vendors set.  Once we get back I will be sending save the dates which will be able 10months out…so I think you are right on track 🙂
