My FI and I are planning a destination wedding in the Bahamas in September 2014. We are inviting about 50 guests to joins us but plan to do a large casual reception back home (Massachusetts) where we will invite all 200 guests. I am stumped as to how do to the invitations. I want to put some wording on the invitation to indicate that there will be a reception when we return to the states to give our guests the option of traveling to the Bahamas or attending the reception at home or both.
Also, I plan to do save-the-dates to give people the heads up on our upcoming destination wedding. When do I send out save-the dates and invitations for a destination wedding. I want to give people enough time to save if they do want to travel with us.
