thehappiestbridetobe on this one…it’s a little much so far in advance.  Honestly, if this was sent to me I’d probably get a chuckle out of how over the top it is and then probably delete it then ask you questions closer to if needed.<br />

Additionally, you may want to blank out your wedding website information…you’ve posted it for all to see.

Bride2Bee12_30_2015:  I like the general idea of the newsletter, because it’s pretty to look at and no need to go through numerous mails then… but i also think *1,5* years out (if that’s the correct date in your nickname) might be a little early to start involving everyone.

Wow, um…..that’s a bit much there. And it says ‘one of many to come’. You may want to dial it down just a little. Remember that while this is a super-exciting time in your life, it’s not as intense to other people as it is to you.

You are a year and a half out and you are already way too high maintainence here.  I have had 2 weddings and planned/hosted all 4 of my girls weddings. There wasn’t a newsletter in sight.  Why on earth do you need newsletters (and many more to come at that)?

White tie is the most formal of affairs and is usually reserved for affairs of the state.  Are you truly having a white tie affair?  Valet parking, butler passed apps, several course plated meal, band, top shelf open bar?

I am also curious – why do you want them to mark their calendars for the 3 days after your wedding?

It seems like you put a lot of work into your newsletter, and, if you’re not doing a wedding website, it might be kind of fun for your bridal party to receive maybe 2-3 more between now and your wedding, just to keep everyone on the same page about things.

I’d recommend letting this sit for a month or so, then revisiting it and seeing if you still want to send it. As others mention, it seems very high-maintenance, and that might not be the tone you wish to set. Your bridal party might not find it cute or charming. You also may be expecting too much to have their undivided attention and involvement for a full five days surrounding the wedding. It’s like they’re your employees at that point, which is likely to strain even the most loving of friendships.

“the first of many newsletters to come”?  That alone would have me running for the woods.

 I suggest you have someone proofread the next and any following newsletters.

I do like the color scheme! And I’ve seen newsletters done very helpfully in the past. But 4 pages, 18 months out is a little much lol. Don’t put so much pressure on your girls to get as excited as you are this early!

 

Also, is it a destination wedding? 5 days over a major holiday is a little unusual.

Wouldn’t it just be easier to copy and paste a simple message in an email? I don’t get how formatting and doing all that can fit into someone who is truly busy’s schedule.

Bride2Bee12_30_2015:  I would just keep in mind no one except you and your Fiance care about your wedding this far in advance. Sounds harsh, but it’s true. I would be sooo irritated if as a guest I received a bunch of newsletters over the course of the next year and a half that by the time the wedding came I would roll my eyes and not read a single line. I think it’s a decent idea, maybe 4-6 months in advance, at the MOST for really pertinent information – but then again your invitations should include time/date/place/directions/accomodations and that’s really all your guests need to know.

Less is more.
