@Miss Party Cat:  Congrats! Do you know where it will be, if you already know, I would honestly send them out in the fall maybe, just because people need a lot of time to save depending on if its expensive and far. How many people are you inviting, because we are probably having 70 (alot more than we originally thought) and i am only having my sister closest in age to me stand up (I have 5 sisters and would have loved to have them all) but I didn’t want there to be such a huge wedding party at a small wedding. Just something to consider. Since your bridal party will have to pay for attending and being in the party, they will need extra time to save for it, and keep in mind, you should let them know about expenses up front so if they can’t afford it they can politely decline.

@Miss Party Cat:  We sent out out STD’s about a year in advance of our wedding but also let people know by word of mouth before that to let them know our plans for a Destiantion wedding. I suggest not choosing your bridal party until a year out also cause alot can change with friends in the years before your wedding

@Miss Party Cat:  Well out STD’s were emails with booking info as  people had to make a deposit by a due date in order to get the group rate

@Miss Party Cat:  I’m getting married in Anna Maria Island FL. I just asked my sister if she wanted to be my Maid/Matron of Honor when we figured out a date, but my parents are renting the houses and she is riding down in the car with them. She is throwing my a shower next weekend (which I honestly think she’s spending alot based on the small amount of info i’ve gotten out of her) and she bought a dress. But other than that she’s not really spending money to be at my wedding since my family is taking care of all of that.
