@Autumnsnow:  Not sure if it’s normal, it seems pretty short notice ( I think DW are supposed to be communicated to guests around 6 months in advance at least ). Have they told you beforehand around what date they were planning on getting married?

Can you still make it work and go to their wedding? Probably involves a lot of planning on your side…

Depending on who it was and where it was and as long as i had the leave I would probably go. But it really is short notice for a DW.

But every destination wedding I have been to and for my own there has been an STD or email letting everyone know when and where about a year prior.

@Autumnsnow:  I would figure out if I could afford to go and if I wnated to go and respond as soon as I knew. It may be a bit of short notice but that doesn’t change how I would respond.

Sounds like just decided what they’re going to do. I would expect at least 3 months notice but if they were important and I was able to go, I’d try to make it.

seems like really short notice to me but if it’s an elopement I can understand not wanting to let the cat out of the bag too early.
