Wedding Pre-Invitation Cards Help When Choosing Your Venue Based on the Number of Guests

The Wedding Guru Judy Lewis fields this week's wedding questions. Today: If you’re basing your wedding venue on the number of guests, can you send a pre-invite instead of “Save the Date” cards?

Every once in a while we hear from someone planning a wedding who puts their guests first and foremost. They could stand as an example for everyone else!

Dear Wedding Guru: “Do you know the rules about sending pre-wedding invites? I’m choosing my venue based on the number of family and friends who can attend, instead of a fixed number of guests. This way, we can invite as many of our friends and family as possible. Our pre-wedding invitation basically asks our guests to respond ASAP; if they R.S.V.P. ‘yes,’ we’ll pick our venue (based on the number of ‘yes’ responses), and then let the guests know the details. (Essentially we don’t ask them to respond a second time.) Have you heard of anyone doing this? If so, please let me know and give me whatever feedback and suggestions you may have.”
