Yes it's early but is anyone else going to combine STD with their Christmas card mailings?
I want to save on postage but is it too soon?
no!! i'm trying to send mine this month! but ALL my guests are OOT, otherwise I could do them with Christmas cards!
Im trying to send mine the first week of November...
I already sent mine, BamBam :)
But, people said I was early... Which I probably was... But, we have out of towners that were already making their summer vacations sooo I wanted to make sure they knew :) One couple already rescheduled their vacation to make our wedding :)
My motto is... If you have the date set, then send them out!! :)
I'm trying to get my done and out before the holidays>
I'm trying to get my done and out before the holidays.
I'd like to get my STD out by the first week of December :)
I sent mine out in September for my June wedding. 95% of our guest our OOT, so it made sense.
I'm sending mine as soon as they come in... We were so slow getting our list together!! Hopefully in the next few weeks we will have them...
We were going to send them out first week of January, but I'm thinking of pushing that up and sending them by the first week of November now...
I read that November is the month for STDs, at least on the PW checklist. I am going to send mine with my Christmas cards as well. It's practical, and everyone gets a little present with their Christmas cards...the happy news of your upcoming wedding.
i am hoping to send mine out the first week of december...hoping. i ordered a sample from vista print so hopefully i like it and then i can order all!
I wasn't going to do STD, but I want to.. because I feel crafty. I'm going to make magnets with this monogram:
I'm going to be combining them with my christmas cards.
Oh thanks gals! Yikes, I had no idea that they could be sent out so soon. That really helps. Butterly17, that looks very elegant. I'm either doing vista print or moo cards. Probably not with e-photos though.
I sent mine in October!
I'd planned to send mine by the last week of October. I don't think you can send Save the Dates out too early when you're getting married in the most popular wedding month and vacation month of the year. I actually just got mine done this very night, despite all my good intentions.
I wish I'd thought of combining them with Christmas cards, too! What a good idea. And Butterly, what a gorgeous monogram! You make me want to hire you.
But what about invitations? What do y'all think is the absolute deadline for sending those out for a June wedding? I was thinking of sending mine in Feb and asking for RSVPs by the end of March. Is that a bad idea?
We're sending our invitations three months ahead (The usual is 2-4 months before). The only problem for asking people to RSVP by the end up march is that some aren't able to fully commit. I was one of those inconsiderate guests before getting engaged so I feel like a bumpkin frequently.
