When should I send out my invitations?
As a rule of thumb, wedding invitations should go out 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding with an RSVP date of 3-4 weeks out from the wedding date. Keep in mind the time it will take you to address the envelopes (and assemble the invitations if you so choose.)
When should I start the invitation design process?
The more time we have to perfect the design the better off we are. Ideally the design process should start 2-3 months before the invitations need to be sent out. Which means 4-5 months before your wedding date. If you are also interested in custom save the date cards you should begin the design process 8-12 months before the wedding date.
How many invitations should I order?
It is highly recommended that you order at least 5-10 extra invitations to allow for mistakes. If you are doing the assembly yourself, lean more towards 10 extra. Make sure you count your guests carefully. Remember, couples only need one invitation.
Can I include my registry information on my invitation?
It is still considered bad form to include registry information on wedding invitations. It suggests that you are asking for gifts. Tell your wedding party, parents, and close friends where you are registered, and let them fill the guests in. Guests know that they are supposed to ask your mom, maid of honor, or even you where you are registered.
Will you proofread my text?
No. I do make sure all spacing and format is correct but I am not responsible for misspellings or typos. I will send a PDF file for you to proof to ensure everything is exactly how you want it to and will not print without your final approval.
How do I decide the wording of my invitation?
You can choose to be as formal or informal as you’d like. You have options when it comes to wording and it really depends on the details of your wedding. Wording will be discussed when we meet.
