I think that sounds like a plan. For sure no later than you would send out a normal invite.

We’re having our Destination Wedding in mid-May, AHR at the end of June. We’ve told people here & there about the AHR. I’m thinking we’ll just keep giving everyone a verbal heads up and send the invites right before we leave for the Destination Wedding ( and request the RSVP by June 1). Just hope I have enough time to figure those out and get them sent…but the AHR will be a casual party so I’m not too worried about it! Hope this helps!

Can you schedule emails to be sent from your website?  I think it might be kind of fun to have it sent like an hour after your ceremony in Jamaica (I totally don’t do this to make it look like I’m working way late at work) saying something like… “We just got married and would love to celebrate with you at home on such and such a date”

Or I’d just send it when you get home.  I think that’s still plenty of notice if you don’t have a lot of people coming from out of town.

We’ve actually already started telling people about our plans for when we return, mostly when people ask. Since our post wedding celebration will be very casual, the night before we leave for Jamaica, I’ll be sending an email officially telling everyone about our plans.

We are having a destination wedding in Colorado on August 6th & our at home reception will be on August 26th.  We sent out save the dates for our wedding a good 7 months out & only sent them to people who are going to the wedding, which will only be immediate family & our wedding party.  We’ve been letting people know about our at-home reception verbally, but we’ll also be sending out invitations for it hopefully by the beginning of next month (I’m still working on them!).
