December 2012 Weddings

Hi! Intro and STD Timeline Question

Hi all!  I have been poking around this board a little and you seem like a great bunch of ladies! I am planning our wedding for December 28, 2012, in Lake George, NY, about 30 mins from where we grew up/where the majority of our guests live. 

Question:  When are you sending your STDs?  I feel I need to be sending them sooner rather than later since the wedding will be between Christmas and New Years.  I say this because I know some guests travel to neighboring states to celebrate the Holidays with the other side of their families.  I figured you were the best ladies to ask!  TIA!

Re: Hi! Intro and STD Timeline Question

  • It varies for different weddings based on where you having your wedding (destination, home ect). I told my future MIL that I should probably send them out soon and she doesn't think they need to be since people aren't planning their holidays right after the holidays are over. I can see that point of view but at the same time I want those we are inviting to know when we are having it so if they want to attend they can plan their holidays around it when they begin planning. I'm send mine out between January and March. That will give guests plenty of notice and being able to plan since it is around the holidays. Especially since my FI's family is spread acrosss the entire country. It would be different if his family were closer, like mine all living in the same town or at least 30 mins apart. 
    If you are having your wedding in a location where most of you guests live I would say around March would be a good time.

  • We're getting married 12/30/12 and will probably be sending out our STDs in February or March.

    I already have my STDs too. Ordered them from Vistaprint on Black Friday and just paid shipping.

  • Our STDs will be here 1/10 and we are sending them out probably 1/20. We are having a Disney wedding on 12.22.12 and want to give people plenty of time! I'd say Feb or March for your situation. Maybe even April. :)

  • My FH and I are getting married on 12-12-12 and we're planning on sending out STDs via email around March or April.
    I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; so I love you because I know no other way than this..
