- Wedding: July 2013
FI and I were going to do a simple ceremony in Ontario. However, this ‘morphed’ into the idea of doing a wedding in Newfoundland (so people would not need to travel and we could have a honeymoon), followed by an affirmation ceremony in Ontario a week later (so people would not need to travel and we could ‘relax’ with family and friends at home).
Sounded pretty accomodating to me?? Plus, our honeymoon and ‘rock the frock’ photos could be captured in between!
Well…the ‘save the dates’ went out to people this past week…we sent them respectively….those we ‘thought’ to be interested in attending the wedding in Newfoundland were given ‘save the dates’ for the wedding in Newfoundland…those we ‘thought’ to be interested in attending the ‘affirmation’ in Ontario were given ‘save the dates’ in Ontario…AND the ‘save the dates’ contained our website information that explained our 7 day wedding adventure plans including both ceremonies.
Well, I now have messages coming in from people in Ontario who are definitely interested in attending the wedding in Newfoundland and I have people in Newfoundland who are definitelhy interested in attending the ‘affirmation’ in Ontario! Yikes! This is totally unexpected as it is my second wedding in life…but it is definitely something that is most welcome by both my FI and I!!
I am just overwhelmed that they all care about my wedding this much at this point!! But now I don’t know what to do!!
Should I have sent both ‘save the dates’ to everybody?? This is an etiquette situation I never, ever thought about before today…but now, I am not sure how to fix it! For those who have asked this week for an alternate invitation, I have sent a message saying “certainly!!” and then sent them the ‘save the date’ for the alternate ‘wedding’ they are interested in attending…
But….should I go back and send EVERYONE both of the ‘save the dates’ (ie. for both provinces)? Or…should I just wait to hear from those who look at the wedding website and inquire about the alternative ‘wedding'(one province versus the other)? Or…should I send out the formal wedding invitations in a way that invites EVERYONE to both ‘weddings’?
