Invitations 101

The time is coming to start thinking about your wedding invitations! So you’ve got your list; now what?

Here are a few helpful hints to help you get started:

  • Send your invitations six to eight weeks before the wedding. Make sure and give yourself enough time to design, print, put together, and address them. If you have a lot of out of town guests or you are having a destination wedding send them a couple weeks earlier so guests can make travel plans.
  • Your invitations should reflect you as a couple and give guests a little peek into the style of your wedding. Have fun with it!
  • The RSVP deadline should be about 2-3 weeks before your wedding date. This gives your caterer an accurate guest count and saves you from more seating chart edits.
  • Pay attention to the way you address your invitations. If you want your guests bring dates write “Jack Smith + Guest” if you are inviting a whole household write “Jordan, Pamela & Family”.

Don’t worry, you can do this!
