- Wedding: May 2013
okay, what information actually goes on the Save the dates? I haven’t found any I like as of yet (to follow up my other post, so I may DIY them – well that are in my budget anyhow)
Today I was “designing” my STDs online(took me forever to abbreviate that one LOL) anyhow, I started to put the Location and everything and then it dawned on me “this isn’t an invitation, what the hell am I suppose to put on here?”
So for the information I have on there so far
Save the Date
Bill and Ronney are Celebrating their 20th Anniversary with a Vow Renewal and a Reception. May 13th 2013. 2-630pm. More information on our website (with our website information) After party to follow.
But the after party perhaps will be us all getting on a party bus and hitting up our favorite dive bars around town. Everyone would need to pay their own way at the bars. (we are supplying beer and perhaps homemade hard lemonade at the reception). Or we are moving soon to a house with a HUGE backyard so we may just have a keg, and some mixed drinks etc… I will know closer to the date what I am going to do….
but right now, my main concern is…
I don’t know if its ok to put “after party to follow” on there, but I want people to be aware so they don’t think that the end of the reception is at 6:30 (because its in a park). and I want people to come… So anyhow, please help me with wording and ettiquett part of it. When we married 18 years ago (May 8th is our actual anniversary) there were no such thing as Save the Dates. LOL But I definitely want to use them because I know this time I will have Out of Town guests. Also how far in advance should I send them out? I am thinking 6 months for the Out of Town and 3 months for the locals?
Thanks for your input, I look forward to the advice!
