Just Said Yes May 2024

rsvp date is approaching and there are still guests who don't have their invitations!

An, on March 31, 2024 at 9:38 AM Posted in Etiquette and Advice 0 2
I wrote down the rsvp date 2 months before the wedding to give us enough time for seating charts since I'm planning a destination wedding and there's a lot of moving parts. I didn't think my invitations would take so long to prepare since every one of them were hand crafted by me. Now we are almost at the rsvp deadline and there are still guests who don't have their invitations yet. I'm not sure how to give them the details card without them being offended. It's not last minute because we still have 2 months and everyone had a year to prepare since the save the date card was sent out. Help!

P.s. please keep in mind that the invitations were going to 6 different countries and 2 continents.

    Do those guests not have their invitations due to them being lost in the mail? Or because the invitations haven't been created yet? If it's due to being lost in the mail, you may want to call those guests to explain the situation and give them the details over the phone. If the invitations haven't been created yet, I would create them ASAP with an extended RSVP date (maybe set it for around 4-5 weeks before the wedding), and send them out as soon as you can. You're still within the timeframe for when invitations are typically sent out (6-8 weeks before the wedding).

    I would send them out ASAP, as per Lisa's advice. You'll need to extend the RSVP date to about 3-4 weeks before the wedding. If you don't have time to make any, then buy some standard invitations at a stationary store. If you're getting married in May, I'd do that like today.
