Save the Dates with invitations?
Posted 11 June 2009 - 11:10 AM
1. all of our guests are web savvy
2. it's convenient
3. it's "Green" (saves on paper)
4. it seems redundant to send a formal invitation several months later with the same information
Is it tacky to do it this way? My mom wanted to send invitations but when I told her of our idea, she said we could just send out announcements after the wedding.
That said, if we proceed in this fashion, would it be acceptable to send announcements with the AHR information? And, how much notice should we give for the AHR b/c that will require a trip and hotel reservations for people as well? There are also some people to whom we probably will not extend an invitation to the wedding but would like to see stateside when we return. We don't have a clue as to when or where that will take place and probably won't until just before the wedding. (It's announced on the website as TBD, but stay tuned...)
Any thoughts or feedback on this is very much welcomed....

I kind of had a similar situation. We have some people that are coming to the destination, but then we have some people that we do not know if they are coming to the destination or just the AHR. We have decided that we are going to send them both invites. We have designed invites that will be the same invite for both the destination and the announcements, but different wording for each.

As with anything, as much advanced notice you can give people, the more time they have to plan. I'm with npaterson, as soon as you have a firm date, let your guests know!
