- Wedding: August 2011
FI and I are getting married in 28th August 2011.
I just was looking for advice on invitations.
You see, we are getting married in the UK, however we have about 20 or so guests who are coming (or at least are invited) from Canada. All are pretty close family of mine, first cousins and aunts and uncles etc.
I sent out the Save the Dates for the Canadians a few weeks ago (late July) and plan to send out the UK ones around Sept/Oct.
I was thinking it would be best to send out the actual invitations in 2 waves as well, earlier to the Canadians of course. Thing is, when do you think I should send these? Is 6 months before to early? They all know about the wedding anyway so are probably going to have to book flights by then anyway, right?!
And then when should I send the UK ones?
I figure this would give me a head start on knowing how many invites to send out to UK guests- if some Canadians can’t come, I will know early enough to be able to send invites to my ‘B’ list!
Thanks for your help- I haven’t been to many weddings so I haven’t gotten many invitations! J
