When should I send out my wedding invitations?
Congratulations on your big news! Now you’ve set the date to ‘tie the knot’ with the love of your life, it’s time to plan ahead and schedule everything in plenty of time to avoid disappointment.
Here at #TLPS we have put together a little guide to help you know when you should find your perfect stationery designer, what’s the perfect timing for sending those invites to your family and friends in the post, as well as what to include and how to chase for those essential RSVPs (trust us – people like to take their time!).
When should I find my stationery designer?
A lot of people leave booking their wedding stationery designer until the last minute. No, no, no! It’s important to remember: the best stationers get booked up pretty quickly. Also, the best stationers would want to deliver your dream wedding suite to a high standard so give them plenty of time to work their magic. There’s no harm in being organised! In fact, please don’t hesitate to contact us, we have a lovely design studio here in Nantwich and would love to spend some time discussing your ideas over a coffee and cake!
When do I need to send my save the dates?
Sending out a ‘Save the date’ is a great idea – especially if you’re arranging a wedding abroad or the destination is a little tricky to get to. The usual timescale for sending ‘Save the dates’ is 8-10 months. However, keep in mind that guests may need extra time to plan for busy periods such as Christmas and Easter.
You don’t have to go into military-style step-by-step instructions and detailed specifics just yet, but this pre-invitation is a handy way to give guests a nice heads up and get your date in their diaries.
It also gives your guests plenty of time to request time off work, book accommodation, arrange childcare and save money.
