Invitation Etiquette

Just a note on Invitation Etiquette... I know like things aren't hectic enough but you have to make sure you give yourself and your guests enough time to respond to your invitation and to have an accurate head count. You typically want to send out the invitations six to eight weeks in advance, with your RSVP cards do back to you two weeks before the wedding. That will insure you have plenty of time to make your seating chart and finalize your escort cards.

Make sure that you start organizing your invitations a month before you plan to send them out. There's a lot to do, properly addressing the cards, stuffing the envelopes and insuring proper postage. Proper addressing is something I think people underestimate a lot. It actually can take a bit of your time to make sure you do it correctly. If you have any questions with how to do this or you are unsure, just reply to this thread with your question or you can email me if you have a more detailed or personal question.

When you address the invitation please keep in mind that they must be hand written. Absolutely no stick on labels. Not even for small intimate weddings. Although evelopes with computer printed calligraphy is becoming very popular and is becoming more accepted. If you have the ability to do this on your computer and you printer is set up to feed envelopes then this might be something you can look into. Hand Calligraphy is always the most elegant solutions, however if your on a tight budget there is so much you can do with nice pens. It just requires a bit of practice first before you actually address you invitations. We do offer calligraphy for you invitations and if this is service you would like please email me for pricing details. We think you'll find it far more affordable then you think.
We also offer computer printed envelopes as well.
