Your wedding invitation is the first thing your guests will see so it should set the tone and theme of your wedding day – formal, semi-formal, or casual. You can choose to have your invitations printed or make them yourself.
Here are more tips about invitations:
• Many brides are saving hundreds of dollars by designing their own invitations on their personal computer. There are so many software programs available that guide you through the entire process and include several design options.
• Invitations should be mailed 4-6 weeks prior to your wedding date. You’ll want to order invitations at least four months before the wedding to allow plenty of time for their preparation, addressing and mailing. For engraved invitations order them even five months ahead. (GREAT TIME SAVER: When you order your invitations, ask if you can have the envelopes right away. This will give you extra time to address the envelopes.)
• Allow yourself plenty of time to proof the invitation and order form before ubmitting it to the printer. Have a friend or family member check the draft or pre-press copy before giving the final “OK”. When your invitations are ready, be sure to count your invitations and proof them before leaving the printer’s office.
• Always order 15 to 20 more invitations than you think you’ll need. It can be very expensive to order additional invitations at the last minute – and you may not get them in time! You’ll need extra invitations for any mistakes made in addressing the envelopes, any “last minute” additions to the guest list, and a few for keepsakes.
• Review your guest list to make sure that all the names are spelled correctly and addresses are up to date.
• Usually, the bride’s family sends out the invitations. However, if the groom’s parents are sharing in the expenses, then they can be on the invitation as well. • Take a typical invitation “package” (what you will be sending to your guests) to the post office and have it weighed. Be sure to apply the appropriate amount of postage stamps so that your invitations are delivered on time and with no postage due!
• Common Invitation Mistake: Do NOT address a wedding invitation as “Mr. and Mrs. Jones & Family”. Always take the time to address the inside envelope with the name of each member of the family. Begin with the parents, “Mr. & Mrs. Steven Jones” then, write the full name of each child in order of age, beginning with the oldest child. All Children over the age of 16 should receive their own invitation
