FI and I are probably booking a hotel as our venue, although the date that we want, while available, is on a popular weekend and they won't block out rooms Saturday night (wedding is Sunday). So, this is probably fine, but it means that guests who definitely are out of town and need a room the night before need to book much earlier than usual. (September wedding, the weekend is the same weekend as a local college's family weekend - they get pretty booked up)
I was thinking about writing something on our save the dates (which are already ordered and ready to go, I know, I'm doing a lot of this backwards, but there's other situational factors), for those who I KNOW are going to do this, but now I just saw something about sending out invites early (which, while not ideal, would give them all the info they need). Then again, I could just contact the people in question in person, and have my mom help out, to make sure they understand the situation.
Thoughts? Advice? Pick a different weekend and change the save the dates?
