Is it ok to invite guests to a party for the bride and groom before sending out Save The Dates?

Expert's Assistant: The Etiquette Expert will know what to do. Please tell me everything you can so the Etiquette Expert can help you best.

Do not want to use email. Have Save The Dates but need to send invitations to a party now, save the dates later.

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else the Etiquette Expert should be aware of?

That's all.

Hi,

It's absolutely fine to have a party honoring the intended couple before "save the date" or wedding invitations have been sent out. Couples are often entertained prior to the time that the actual date for the wedding has been set (sometimes even six months or more in advance).

Enjoy your party!
