- Wedding: October 2014
Hi Everyone… My FI and I got engaged earlier this month, however we’ve been planning the wedding since early April (set the date and everything). A couple of family members and friends have also recently gotten engaged. We were thinking of sending out Save the dates to serve as sort of an engagment announcement, we just so happen to have the date already. We wouldn’t be sending them to the entire guest list, mostly just family and anywhere there would be an overlap with the other recently engaged couples. I kind of just want to give them a head’s up early on since there will most likely be at least 3 weddings within a short time span (2 may even be the same month).
So basically my question is…. Is it ok to send out a STD/engagement announcement to immediate family and close family friends even though our wedding is October 2014 since they are about to get hit up for several weddings over the next year?
And is it ok to send the rest of the save the dates out at the normal time (ie 6 months)? Or should we send a reminder to family too?
(I think part of it is I’m just super excited for how they came out since I designed them myself so I don’t want to wait until 6 months to show everyone. )
