- Wedding: May 2010
ok. i tried talking about this w. FH but he was of course no help. need some expert bee advice.
our wedding is may 1st. it is out of town by 700 miles for ~85% of guests
Future Mother-In-Law is planning engagement party for her neighborhood friends sept 26. we’re planning another engagement party for our local friends sometime in early october. (two separate groups of ppl – no one will be going to two diff parties)
based on that, im wondering when to send Save-The-Date Cards. everything i can find suggests sending Save-The-Date Cards 6-8 mos in advance, so for our wedding that’s between Sept 1 and Nov 1. since ours is out of town for basically everyone, id planned to err on the early side. HOWEVER, i dont want to overload guests with an engagement party invite and a save the date so close to each other, but if the Save-The-Date Cards go out after the engagement parties, it seems like kind of a moot point since ppl will have jut been to a party where theoretically details of the event will be discussed. hence my conundrum…
what do you clever bees think i should do?
