- Wedding: July 2014
My fi and I are tying to decide when to send our invites. We are getting married on a cruise on July 7 and those invites are going out about 6 months before, tho most people are aware of the date and many have booked.
We are having a larger ‘I do BBQ’ reception at my mom’s farm on August 2. I know that invites typically go out 6-8 weeks before but when I mentioned that to my fi he freaked out and said he thought it was 6 months and that he already has family asking for invites…(several branches of his family have asked)
sooo, given that and that the day of our BBQ is a holiday weekend and that we will be away from July 7-22 with the cruise, so it might be better to have the second set of rsvps in before that (we are self-catering from food off our farm), when should we send the invites? Should we send STDs Even though we weren’t going to originally? Cut the difference and send them 12 weeks out?
