- Wedding: November 2013
I am having a hard time deciding on when to send our reception invites!
We are leaving for Europe Dec 20 and will stay in multiple areas of Switzerland and Italy before arriving in Rome for our ceremony/photo session. We will fly back Jan 4th.
We are planning to have a reception/celebration party on Feb 9th for our friends and family, since they could not come to the actual ceremony. I have started making invitations with the cute “We Eloped” theme, but I’m not sure when to send them. I want people to have enough time to plan for the party/decide on gifts on our registry/rsvp, etc. but I feel like it is strange to send a card stating that we’ve eloped before we actually do elope. I was thinking perhaps we can send a card that will say we are eloping to Rome instead of saying we already eloped, but is that weird?
My only other option would be to send them after our elopement, in the first week of January, is that enough time?
What would you guys do or what did you do for your elopement?
Any ideas would be great!! 🙂
