Invitation design for more than one date

We're getting married in France next year but the actual ceremony date is weather dependent and could be one of two days. I'm trying to design our invitations but I don't know what date/dates to put. Has anyone got any suggestions?

Do two invitations in one. Have a different background colour on each half. Display the same information but put each date on a different half. Make a perforation down the middle and when you have a confirmed date your guests can keep the correct side. Kind of like raffle tickets. It adds a bit of fun for the guests before they even arrive!

Personally i wouldnt send them out until you know the date for sure. We are getting married in Cyprus June 2020 and we are sending out the invites in July 2019 after I have booked it all. (Im flying out there this June to book it)

You could just put both dates then (dependant on weather) date to confirmed by X. Assuming dates are consectutive sat/sun and people woupd probably go to your venue for at least the weekend

Are the days consecutive? Maybe invite people to a wedding weekend/minibreak, it ensures they have travel and accommodation booked for both possible days and leave the itinerary off until they arrive, have a "starts from" time on day 1. Plan in something flexible and budget-friendly for whatever day isn't the wedding with the same start time, eg a cream tea, followed by free time to explore the area, followed by a cocktail evening - something that would work before or after the wedding day.

Do a save the dates for now and leave it until closer to the time to do invitations. Set up a website and manage it from there they are so easy to do

Sorry, I should have said that everyone is coming for at least 5 days and will all be there for both days (it'll be either Monday or Tuesday) so it won't matter to them, I just wanted the invites to look nice and be accurate as a keepsake in a few years!

Perhaps you put the dates of the week, rather than the actual wedding...please join us for the celebration of our marriage 4/5/20-11/5/20....
Out of interest does anyone know if Brexit will have any impact on getting married abroad?

If its at the weekend, you could put "the weekend of --th & --th" or "join us over the --th & --th to celebrate our wedding"
