So my fiance and I are still early in the planning process. We are considering having a smaller wedding ceremony and reception down South where my family lives and then having an additional reception in New England where the majority of his family lives.
My fiance is convinced that not many people from his family will show up to the southern wedding so that is why we would be also doing a New England reception. I believe if we give people enough time with our Save the Dates that more of his family would travel for the wedding.
This is where my issue lies, I am unsure how we would address the Save the Dates if we were to have two wedding receptions in two different states. Additionally, I am unsure how we would get an appropriate head count for each reception prior to the wedding invitations and the RSVPs.
Any information would be helpful! Thanks!
