You're Invited: RSVP in Style

I have a few friends who are getting married in the near future, and I never cease to be WOWED by the countless decisions they're forced to make through the planning process. Forget the magic of a wedding - the venue, your dress and of course, your ring - there are countless other decisions to make and all feel equally as important when you're in the throes of planning - think florals, catering, and of course, invitations!

Invitations are, in many, cases "the first impression" you'll make on guests - so, make sure that what you choose accurately reflects your style as a couple and what the guest can expect from the wedding. Here are a few more tips:

  • Send invitations a minimum of 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding to ensure that guests have time to plan accordingly. If you're planning a destination wedding, ensure that you pad that timeframe!
  • Don't forget that couples or children can all go on the same invitation. As a general rule, you'll want to order half the number of invitations as the people you've invited, then twenty or thirty extras.
  • Don't forget to kill multiple birds with one stone - order Thank You and Reply cards, as well as envelopes at the same time.
