Finally, the time has come to announce your big day!
You have chosen the location of your dreams, set the date, you have already notified your closest friends and family.
Now is the time to send out those gorgeous invitations, but where do you start?
In the next few lines, I’ll give you some tips.
WHEN TO ORDER AND WHEN TO DISTRIBUTE YOUR INVITATIONS
Save the date
These are cards that announce only the wedding with the date, no location. Basically, it’s a nice way to give your guests a preview. They are sent 6-12 months in advance.
When to order: 7-13 months before the wedding. Take a month to distribute them.
I have already talked about wedding invitations in another article (in case you can read it here). How long in advance do we have to invite our guests? 6-3 months earlier. When making your calculations, take into account any guests who will need to book airplanes and hotels.
When to order: At least 6-8 weeks before you want to distribute them.
the card that will help you get your guests’ confirmation in time! Obviously, they must be included in the invitations, and ordered together with them. Menus, programs of the day, place cards… I advise you to order them at least 3 months in advance, and perhaps together with the invitations, in order to plan everything in the best possible way.
Thank you cards
Order them 3 months before the wedding.
After your big day, don’t forget to thank your guests, especially those who couldn’t be present at your big “yes”, and maybe sent you their gift!
WHAT DOES A WEDDING OR INVITATION PARTICIPATE FROM?
- One or more cards. We have seen them before: invitations, rsvp, save the date etc …
The envelope, to be made out to the person, and any other envelope if you need to send.
In some cases, depending on the model you choose, the rvsp may have its own separate sachet.
Cable ties, sealing wax, cases, and much more.
- Double check all texts of any graphics!
- Make sure you have included the date, time, and addresses of the location
- Submit your entries on time Always remember to give a confirmation date in the RSVP
- Include additional information to help your guests find the location.
- The etiquette does not recommend sending the participations online. What is different is to virtually send the save the date, or perhaps create a site for the wedding.
- Don’t send a save-the-date to someone you won’t invite later.
- Don’t invite people you don’t want to invite. Imagine if they will then accept your invitation.
