Ordering Wedding Invitations

An invitation sets the tone for guests long before the wedding starts. It gives them a glimpse of the style of the wedding and gives them a schedule for preparation. As with every part of planning a wedding, choosing invitations is an activity that takes a little more effort than you’d think.

It’s also something you want to take care of early. Your Save the Date should go out 8-10 months before the wedding, and the invitations should be ready to mail 6-12 weeks before the wedding. As soon as your venue is booked, start looking for stationery designers.

You’ll want a designer who fits your budget, but also one who fits the overall vibe of your wedding. Gather all the inspiration you can, settle on a color palette, and bring it all to the designer. If you want to go the extra mile and really get your guests excited, think about all the extras you can include: inner envelopes, pocket folds, ribbons, wax seals, vellum overlays, and more. If arts and crafts aren’t your strong suit, bring your ideas to your designer and work it out together.
