- Wedding: October 2011
We’re going to have a family dinner two nights before our wedding. The original plan was to send an evite after the invitations went out, in large part because I was having trouble figuring out how we could do a separate RSVP with the invitation itself. Though, I was talking to my dad about it and he said because the wedding is Sunday, many people may not be here yet on Friday (many out of town guests). Because of this, he suggested I put in a little save the date type slip so people could know to come a day earlier if they want to come for the dinner as well. So, I guess my first question is, is that okay?
My second question–I’m still planning on doing an evite for the family dinner. I figure doing it with paper will be a lot of extra postage and a lot more paper to coordinate. Plus, we went to a wedding recently where an evite was sent for a pre-wedding dinner, and that seemed to work out well. My question with this is…is it okay to put on the save the date, “details to follow via email”? I want people to know that details will be coming soon (as we still don’t have those all figured out), though I want to make sure people know to check their emails. I know this digital stuff is all new, and there’s a lot of etiquette still being formed around it. So, any thoughts on that would be very helpful.
