- Wedding: July 2014
My fi and I are tying to decide when to send our invites. We are getting married on a cruise on July 7 and those invites are going out about 6 months before, tho most people are aware of the date and many have booked.
We are having a larger ‘I do BBQ’ reception at my mom’s farm on August 2. I know that invites typically go out 6-8 weeks before but when I mentioned that to my fi he freaked out and said he thought it was 6 months and that he already has family asking for invites…(several branches of his family have asked)
sooo, given that and that the day of our BBQ is a holiday weekend and that we will be away from July 7-22 with the cruise, so it might be better to have the second set of rsvps in before that (we are self-catering from food off our farm), when should we send the invites? Should we send Save-The-Date Cards Even though we weren’t going to originally? Cut the difference and send them 12 weeks out?
