    I originally thought we were going to send out one invite that included info for both the DW as well as the AHR; and we were just going to have one response card with an option to RSVP for both the DW as well as the AHR. Obviously I didn't think this all the way through because it just dawned on me that we will be inviting people to the AHR that are NOT being invited to the DW. So I guess we'll have to do 2 separate invites <sigh>. Unless anyone else has a better way to handle a situation like this?

    Oh - and then to top it off the place I have been looking to order our invites from take 10 to 12 weeks to create the invites!! That seems really long to me, but I have nothing to compare it to. So if they are going to take 10 to 12 weeks, I need to get on this now and get my order placed!

      We're sending out our STD 9 months in advance, to give everyone tons of time to save up if they want to come on the trip. The STD include the general information on the AHR as well (includes date and location) and we plan on sending out an email invitation to the AHR about 4 weeks before the trip (that would be 8 weeks before the AHR).

        I love this! Just warning you that I may plan on stealing this for my own invites. :)

          We sent out invitations to our AHR 8 weeks before so our guests had about 7 weeks to decide if they wanted to come or not. But we only invited a handful of people who actually attended our wedding.
