Here's the deal: We set our wedding date in October 2014. It was not until about December when we were looking up venues and I was browsing TK forums that I decided to check if my date was an Easter date (since it is a holiday with a date that moves around). When I found out, I immediately reached out to the key people (parents, closest friends, etc.) to let them know that we found out our date was the Saturday of Easter weekend and to let us know if it would be a problem. We had not put any money down on anything yet so at that point it would be easy to change. They all said it would be no issue. We went forward with the original date and made it a point to mention to anyone thereafter that it would be the weekend of a holiday so they could make an informed decision.
Fast forward 14 months. January 2016. 2 months before our wedding. We are now hearing from people that they do not remember this conversation or that they did not know it was Easter weekend and that they may not attend. We have a guest list of less than 50 people and will be sending invitations out by the end of the month.
My question is this: Should I give a courtesy call to the people on the list to mention again that it is Easter weekend so that they can make an informed decision? How should this be handled? We sent out STDs in September and people are even still questioning the date of the wedding. It makes me wonder if I did something wrong in terms of communication. Now I'm left to figure things out. What would you do?
