When To Order And Send Your Invitations

by Edna Renskers, Edna's Sweet Announcements

Invitations should be ordered when you have all the details of your wedding set... place and time of ceremony and reception as well as your guest list. Plan to place your invitation order at least 3-4 months in advance. Especially if you are ordering custom made invitations or handmade invitations.

Ideally invitations are sent 6-8 weeks prior to your wedding. It is best to send out of town guests their invitations 8 weeks in advance, this will allow for making travel arrangements. Consider sending out of town guests save the date cards earlier, with information on hotels, flights and car rental.

Keep in mind that you will need time to address your invitations or send them to a calligrapher. Also consider the factor of possible errors and changes in your design.

Even though selecting your invitations may seem like a daunting task with all the possibilities available, giving yourself enough time will prove beneficial and a money saver.

It is never too early to start shopping around!
