I am working on our invite mock-up to our AHR, which is going to take place August 17, just about a month after our DW.
Here is my concern.
We are doing a fairly traditional, though somewhat casual, AHR. We WILL need numbers. It seems that most research I have done is saying to set the RSVP deadline a month ahead of time, which would take it to July 17... We are getting married on the 18 in the Dominican, and will be gone from the 13 to the 27. So I really cannot make the RSVP deadline for AFTER we get back, since that will not really allow much time... Do I make it for BEFORE we leave, and then call the stragglers when we get back? Or do I make it for during the time that we are gone and just deal with it all after we return? That would not be my favourite option.
Thoughts? I am trying to get as much as humanly possible done this summer, since I don't work during summers.
