TE Each year I wonder if we have reached the point in time where it’s acceptable to electronically deliver wedding invitations – as of June 2018 – we have not!
Therefore follow these simple steps to avoid a headache later:
- Aim to order your invitations about four to five months out so they’re ready to mail 6 – 8 weeks before the wedding.
- Include your RSVP information on the bottom right corner of your invitation or on a separate enclosure, and make the deadline no more than 3 – 4 weeks after guests receive the invitations.
- Check with your caterer first to find out when they’ll need the final head count. Remember: The more time you give guests to reply, the more likely they are to forget—but you’ll need time to put together the seating chart.
- It’s expensive to go back and print more invitations after the fact. Order enough invitations for your guest list, plus 25 extra in case you need to resend an invitation.
- Finally, weigh a sample invitation (enclosures and all) at the post office before slapping a stamp on it. Trust me; you don’t want to deal with the hassle of invitations being returned because of insufficient postage.
