Save-the-dates typically go out three to four months prior to the wedding, but if guests are spread far and wide—or you're throwing a destination wedding—more time is better. No one will complain about having extra leeway to plan. Send invitations six to eight weeks beforehand, with an R.S.V.P. request of two to three weeks prior to the event so you can get a final head count.
Your wedding invitation is your guests' first peek into your wedding day, so you want to make it shine. Not sure where to begin? We've got everything you need to know about this important piece of your stationery right here.
On classic wedding invitations, there's always a request line after the host's name—something like "so and so request the honor of your presence." The wording can change as the hosting situation does, so make sure to double-check you've added everyone who should be included.
Once your date is in place you can get going. Have a look online for wedding stationery that catches your eye. Ask your friends for recommendations, do you research and visit wedding shows where there are usually a good few wedding stationery designers exhibiting. You should get samples of the stationery before you finally make up your mind, especially if you’re commissioning something special.
The wedding invitation is one of the most important things to focus on during your wedding planning. They offer the guests a sample of what type of wedding you're having (formal or casual), and they list critical information to make sure people know where to go and what time to be there.
The process can be fun for both the Bride & the Groom and we want to help you through the process stress free. We've put together some helpful tips on the process of ordering your Wedding invitations and hope that it makes this part of wedding planning much easier.
Wedding invitations are traditionally sent out between six and eight weeks before the wedding, allowing guests to plan for the occasion and make travel arrangements if they live out of town. If you’re having a destination wedding where most of the guests will be traveling, you may want to send your invitation up to three months in advance of your big day. Of course, save-the-date cards – sent up to a year in advance – can also serve to give invited guests plenty of time to plan for the event.
