Do’s And Don’ts of Wedding Invitations

Wedding Invitation

Sending out wedding invitations should be simple. But there are more “i’s” to dot and “t’s” to cross than you might think. Here is a list of do’s and don’ts that you should check off when you send out your wedding invitations.

Do make sure all the important information about your wedding is accounted for. Before you even begin designing your invites, make sure you have all the details ironed out. Check for the important things like time, location, and any other pertinent information. This will save you a headache in the long run. If the invitation has all the correct information, you’ll get less calls and texts about them. 

Don’t leave any information out. If your venue is in an odd location, put some simple directions in the envelope with the invitation. If you are inviting a certain people in a household, include the number of people you are expecting. If you want people to check out your online registry, put the web address on the invitation. It is always better to have too much information on your invitations than not enough.

Do spend extra time making your invites look nice. Invitations are keepsakes for a lot of people. Giving them something worth keeping is worth it. It is also something they will be displaying on their refrigerator for a while. Even if they do not end up keeping it, they will have to look at it a lot. Most importantly, it is a good keepsake for you! It is a moment in your history as you embark on your journey as a couple. Take pride in yourself and your wedding invites.

Don’t wait until the last minute to get your invites ready. The sooner you begin working on them, the sooner you can get them out. Six to eight weeks before your wedding is the standard to send out invites. It takes more time than you may expect to stuff all those envelopes and get them sent out. Even if you are not stuffing envelopes yourself, it takes delivery companies a lot of time to get everything prepared and sent out.

Do double check all your addresses. You do not want a whole slew of invites sent back to you because the addresses were incorrect. It ends up being a major waste of time and postage. Making sure everything is being sent to the right place will make the process of sending out invitations easier.

Don’t misspell your guest’s names. This would seem like a no brainer, but it can end up being a slap in the face. It is an honor to be invited to a wedding. Your guests should feel respected and considered when they receive their invitation. Take the time to make sure all your guests will feel warm about coming to your wedding.

Do follow up with a few people to make sure they got their invites. Most people will tell you that they got their invite. Yet, many people will get their invite and not mention it or will not get their invite at all. To you, those seem like one in the same. Following up with a few people will help with your peace of mind. It also promotes getting early RSVPs.
