    Send the early invites! You might get responses right away. Don’t send save the dates to anyone who’s not on A list, that could be disastrous lol

    The problem with sending invites early is that these guests might check in with other family members who live more locally about if they are going. This would then lead those people to think they haven’t been invited and for the overseas guests to maybe decline thinking the other family members are not invited. Are you ready for that possible situation.

    Send the overseas guests an STD. You may be suprised with who actually attends. often O/S family use a wedding as the excuse they needed to justify spending the money to visit family.

    I woudl be especially careful with the Australian family as airfares to NZ are dirt cheap here and have been for the last couple of years. They are often lower than $150 one way which is good for an international flight!
