- Wedding: July 2013
FI & I are in a bit of a unique situation. He’s originally from Australia, and pretty much all of his friends/family are still there. Some are also scattered in England, Germany and Poland.
The wedding is in America, about 20 minutes from my hometown and all my friends/family.
We knew we had to give his side ample time to save money and book holiday time/flights/hotels, way more than my side would need. So we made the decision to do two separate STDs: one for the American guests, and one for the international guests. We’re sending out the international guest STDs about one year/13 months before wedding, and American STDs at the normal time.
I have two questions then I guess!
1. Should we also do 2 separate invitations, and send out the international invites earlier than American ones?
2. If FI decides to invite more people after the STDs have gone out, is it okay to just email them the date and then send them a formal invite with everyone else? Or can you only send invites to people who got STDs originally? I’m not sure if it’s rude to send someone an invitation if they didn’t also receive an STD.
