When are you getting Engagment Photos taken? Hmmm….already done.  Had it 11 months before the wedding but I also just had a large amount of dental work done so we were on a time crunch.  You do want to get this done in advance of doing STD’s as you may want to use them for that.

When are you sending out SAVE THE DATES? Last month….but usually its at least 6 months prior.  We have a large amount of Out of Town guests so sending early was preferred so they can plan accordingly.  We didn’t send one to everyone….just the guest we knew there was no question about an invite which was 85% of our list.

When are you Registering?  Already registered.  It’s nice to be registered when you send out the STD’s as some people will ask.  We only had one ask so far but Christmas is around the corner and I know more people will ask so they can get us something for the holidays.  We are hard to shop for. 🙂  Rule of thumb….6 months prior but its flexible.

When are you sending out the formal invites ?  Late January.  Again….we have a lot of Out of Town guests and being its a holiday weekend…more time for them the better.

When do you plan on having your Shower?  What shower?  LOL.  This will depend on who wants to throw it for us and when.  Rule of thumb is one month before but I’ve seen it a week before and a few months before the wedding. Somewhere in between is good.

Hey I’m getting married a month after you, so I guess just push everything back a month and it might help you! 🙂

When are you getting Engagment Photos taken? Already done! We wanted to take them in the summer, but you can take them whenever you want really.

When are you sending out SAVE THE DATES? End of January, 6 months before the wedding. Careful when you send yours… You don’t want them to get mixed up with everyone’s Holiday cards in December!!

When are you Registering? Probably around February

When are you sending out the formal invites ? 6-8 weeks before the wedding, so end of April/early May

When do you plan on having your Shower? Last weekend in April, 2 months before the wedding

Hope that’s helpful!!

@Qitty:

When are you getting Engagment Photos taken? My fiance is in the military so we got ours done early so we could send Save-The-Date Cards while he was overseas.

When are you sending out SAVE THE DATES? We just sent them last week. (Memorial Day Weekend 2012 wedding)

When are you Registering? We started our registries already, but I check back every now and again to keep it updated & add some stuff.

When are you sending out the formal invites ? I’m aiming for January. Since it’s a holiday weekend I want to make sure everyone has plenty of notice

When do you plan on having your Shower? I don’t have a clue. My sister is planning.

When are you getting Engagment Photos taken?

Probably in March 2012.

When are you sending out SAVE THE DATES?

This weekend!

When are you Registering?

This month – November 2012

When are you sending out the formal invites ?

Tough question – a significant number of our guests are from out of town, and they’ll have to book flights in order to attend. Probably in January?

When do you plan on having your Shower?

Whenever my bridal party feels like it! No clue. I guess custom is a month or so before?
