It’s easy to design your wedding invitation cards, download the image or PDF file, and have it printed at your local print shop on specialty paper. Our print-at-home option is entirely free, too. Or go totally tech and share your wedding invitations online via email, WhatsApp or SMS, also free of charge. For a full event management service with RSVP, reminders, registry and more features, choose the ‘send online’ option.
Once you’ve designed your invites, when do you send them? And what about save-the-date cards? The consensus is four to six months before your wedding for save-the-dates, but allow additional time if yours is a destination wedding. The number one etiquette tip for these is that save-the-dates only go to people you absolutely plan to invite to the wedding. List the city location to give adequate planning time for travel and lodging, even if your exact venue is still undecided. You can create a unique wedding hashtag and spread it to collect memories of your future event.
Your (amazing!) invitations should arrive in mailboxes six to eight weeks before your wedding, again allowing extra if guests will need to arrange time off and air travel. Set your RSVP date three to four weeks prior to your wedding so you’ll have time to follow up on missing responses before you have to give final numbers to your vendors. A great tip is to use an invisible ink UV pen to mark your response cards with numbers corresponding to your guest list. It’s common to receive back several RSVP’s with no name, and the number system allows you to identify the responders. The UV part keeps it all discreet and the envelope pristine.
From the internet to your best friend to your nearly-in-laws, wedding tips are superabundant. Craft a gracious but noncommittal response to suggestions, and offer it with a genuine smile. In an unpressured moment, choose the ideas that fit your vision and your budget, and be thankful so many people want your special day to be wonderful!
