this is long winded cause ive never been a straight to the point kind of person lol
So my FI and i have finally put a rough date in stone. it will be october 2013. now we want to give as much time to family to attend the wedding as possible. we talked to ama travel and they advised us to book / pay for trip 4 to 6 months in advance.
my question is what do i do about dates ? its technically a renewal of vows ceramony since we will be signing the offical marriage license here in canada on the 3rd. so do i send out a save the date with the rough date of when we would like to travel since my actual wedding date wont be booked till 6 months before? obviously i dont care bout the actual resort date they have available for me.
also i am making everything myself so its not a big money issue or anything. its more of a timing / stress problem lol.
would it make sense to send out rsvp with the save the dates that way im not mailing out / making 100 invitations when probably only 5 ppl plan to come ?
i had seen someone on here send out save the dates a year in advance with rsvp and then only mailed invitations to the ppl who sent the rsvps back?
sounded like a good idea to me but i was jsut concerned as i dont really have a set date until 6 months before. we just are very sure of the 2 weeks we are going.
any advise you lovely ladies can give me i would really apperciate as we had to post pone the wedding once before (do to family emergencies)
i also should mention that i have 1 ppl on my side attending my best friend! and his guest list is at about 50 family members with the hopes of just maybe parents and his sister coming. (family isnt all that close)
