STD’s aren’t required, but they’re normally used when the guests will have to make unusual travel arrangements (such as a destination wedding) so they can prepare ahead of time, and I think that applies in your case.  The STD with the website URL sounds like a good option, if you’re absolutely sure everyone will check the internet – I had our website URL on our STD’s and got barely any visitors.

Save-The-Date Cards aren’t required, but I definitely think it’s too soon for invitations. If you really want to give your guests advanced notice, the best way to do that is by sending out save the dates. And I would recommend putting the information on your website, so you don’t have to try and cram it all into an invitation!

I would send a STD with a line that says, “For reservation information, please visit our website: xxxx”. And then I would send the booklet invitations with all the information about four months out for those people who may not take the initiative to go to the website.

How about an e-STD with your website info (it looks great btw). We didn’t put any info in the actual invitation because we wanted to save the expense of the extra cards and postage – just sent everyone to the website. How about October for the invitations? That gives people 5 months and they’ll be looking forward to a warm spring break rather than August when they’re thinking about the beginning of school. Since it’s in port will the poorer / more time constrained people have the option to fly / drive to Key West and stay on land? (Would the cruise line be okay with non-cruisers getting on?) Can you block hotel rooms there so people can also come more last-minute?
