I dont want it to be so tight nobody can move! Also, im stuck between two photographers, Dean Sanderson and Gonzalo Nunez... they both have great prices (gonzalo a bit better) but i cant decide! they both have awesome pictures!! Does anyone have any adive/suggestions for all my questions lol Thanks!!!!
We're also sending out our save the dates this week (but our wedding is a bit earlier). I'm a bit stressed/unsure about who to send them to though. We sent out the info for our group travel booking which closes this week. Disappointingly, many people emailed us and told us they couldn't attend. I was thinking of sending save the dates to them anyways and just writing on them "sorry the timing doesn't work out" or "we're sad you may not be able to join us!", but I feel like it might be a bit redundant sending them invites as well. Can anyone let me know what they did in this situation?
Also for timing of invites - I think they want rough #'s at least 45 days in advance, so I was thinking of sending out the invites and asking for a reply (with meal preferences) with a deadline of at least 2 months prior to the wedding date. I'm sure there's a bit of added flexibility for people who book last minute though?
