- Wedding: December 2012
So my husband and I got married over a year ago at the courthouse, it was just the both of us and about 3 friends. Since im from Peru and most of my family and friends are there, we decided to have our catholic wedding in Lima, my hometown. My husband always mentioned he didn’t think his family/friends would make it to peru bc our wedding is only 3 days before chritsmas, also tickets to peru are pretty expensive ($800+). Also he is not very close to his fam, he doesnt talk to his mom and isn’t very close to his dad.
So almost knowing none of his friends nor family would attend i still wanted to celebrate our wedding and all my family in peru is in love with him so we are doing it anyway.
Well the wedding is on dec. 22nd and i was going to start sending the invitations this week. Which is Peru is completely normal, and even early (they even send invitations 2 weeks before the wedding)
Reading about wedding etiquette and stuff i realized I may be rude to the people in the U.S by not have sent them Save the dates, or by sending the invitations 6 weeks before the wedding date, apparently I am way behind, Im so confused because i was thinking with the peruvian ettiquete and not the american one, and now im afraid im gonna be rude to my husbands guests. on the other side, I always kinda expected just sending those invitations as a courtesy, I knew almost for a fact they are not going. Its about 20 invitations that im sending in the us.
So now i wonder if i should even bother??? I would feel so bad if ihad to throw away the invites, but also I dont want to look rude. We have been married for over a year and I still dont know his family other than his dad. Like I mention he is not close to them at all..
Please, any advice??? thank you bees!
