    Hello:

    I am at a crossroads! I am not sure if I should book a location first or send out my invites first. I want to book a place so that I can put it on my invites, but I don't want to book a place based on a minimum, that I may or may not have. We have a wedding website. I am thinking to send out the invites and tell people to send in RSVPs both there and by card and to continue to view the website for wedding location updates. Is this a good idea?

    When we got engaged, we first decided on a wedding date of 4/24/10, but then after planning we changed it to 09/09/09. As you can see there is a difference of 7 months. We also change our location choice from Mexico to Vegas. My dear FI & my dear MIL were in a hurry to send out the engagement announcement that we hadn't fully discuss the what, when and how. So those went out with our 04/24/10 wedding date out. Had we discussed it, we could have put more information on the EA and my head wouldn't be spinning right now!

    Enjoy your weekend...

      You should book a place first. I think it is nice to put a venue on the invites. I made the invites (STDs) first and had to throw them all away. When my travel agent called, my date had been taken! We had to book somewhere else.

        My FI had the same opinion as you. I was leaning more towards having the guest view our website for more info, but I think you two may be on to something. Thanks for your sharing your experience.
