reception several months after DW
Posted 03 October 2009 - 06:41 PM
Here is where I am having trouble:
Do I need to send out an announcement immediately following the wedding? Do I include info about the reception then? Or do I wait to send a reception invitation 2 mos in advance?
I really would prefer not to send out 2 mailings due to our budget, but I'm thinking this may be the best.

It really does get to be so expensive doesn't it!!
We sent out save-the-dates to everyone via evite. Almost everyone has booked and I am still being "told" I need to send out "real" invitations to make it more official/formal...

Or if you have the date already set for the reception send out a wedding announcement/ save the date? Then an evite/ postcard reminder instead of a formal invite. If you're creative maybe you can do this as a DIY project. Check out vistaprint they have many inexpensive options.

We had thought about moving the date, but because of his work schedule, my grad school & living in KS right now, we just couldn't find a different time.
lnf_munchkin - could you give me a little more info on your electronic save-the-date? website? I would really like to do an electronic announcement/STD with info about the AHR.
I will probably mail an invite a couple months prior and have guests RSVP to our website.
Keira - I love your idea too! would you mind sharing your verse?
