Timelines for Destination Invites, Rehearsal Invites, Extra Event Invites

Jillian, on October 15, 2019 at 17:02 Posted in Plan a wedding 0 2

We sent out our Save the Dates 1.5 years in advance and will be sending out the ones who are travelling invites 6 months in advance. We are also planning wedding events that not all guests are invited too. If you have had, or are having a rehearsal dinner for a destination wedding, when are you sending rehearsal dinner invites? I have read that rehearsal dinner invites get sent out after invites. When would you include these? Also, when or do you send invites and rsvp to wedding party? They are both in Saskatchewan and Ontario.

This is what I was thinking, our wedding is in Ontario.

Feb-My dad, my mom's side and Sask friends invites will get sent out (All from Saskatchewan, Alberta or the STATES)


April- RSVP due from Saskatchewan people

May- Ontario guests invites get sent out (fiances family and friends)

June-B-list can be sent out if we have any

July- Ontario guests RSVP's Due & more B lists sent out if we have any

Bridal shower and bachelorette will be in July

August 15- All pending RSVP due

September 17- Wine tour for wedding party and some out of town guests

September 18- Rehearsal ceremony (am) and dinner (pm)

September 19-Wedding

September 20- Farewell brunch for wedding wedding party and some out of town guests

    Hi Jillian!

    It's great that you are starting to think about your invitations already. Since you have already sent your Save The Dates to all your guests, that definitely takes some pressure off your timeline seeing as everyone already knows the date of your wedding.

    Wedding invitations are usually sent to guests 6 to 12 weeks before your wedding, but since you have some out of town guests, I would send their invites about 3 months in advance so that they can arrange travel plans.

    To be honest, requesting RSVPs 5 months in advance of your wedding may sound like a good idea, but a lot can change in 5 months. These RSVPs may not give an accurate representation of who can attend or not as your guests may find it difficult to commit to an event that far in advance.

    The information for your invitation should be all together for guests to be well prepared in advance. Those guests invited to particular events get sent only. 6 months time woukkd be good to send out your invites for guests making arrangements (travel, car and resort).
