Wedding invitations are a big deal, you can be certain that all your guests are looking forward to admiring the design, color and calligraphy in these pieces. These simple elements provide guests with some of the information they have been speculating about since you announced your engagement. But sometimes brides and grooms approach us with lots of questions regarding these special elements.
When is the best time to send the invitations? What information should you include? These are some of the questions we will be answering today. So before you send out your wedding invitation cards, here are some important questions to consider.
When is the best time to send out the wedding invitation cards?
The sooner you send the invites the better it is for your guests because they’ll have more time to clear their schedules and make all the necessary arrangements to attend your wedding. So if possible, send the invitations at least 6 weeks before the wedding.
How much time should you give guests to respond to your invite?
It’s important for people to respond so that you can get the final head-count and have an accurate budget to work with. If there are people who haven’t sent their RSVPs 3 weeks before the day of your wedding, give them a call and find out if they will be attending.
Should you include information about your wedding gift registry in your invitations?
This may rub off people the wrong way so you may want to exclude this information from your wedding invitations. It may look as if you are asking people to come with gifts.
Can you mention that you don’t want kids on your wedding on your invitations?
At PaperCharm, we have worked with many clients who simply want an adults-only wedding but don’t know how to convey this to their guests. Addressing this issue on the invitations is not recommended as it may come across as impolite.
Can you include a dress-code in your wedding invitation cards?
Certainly yes! If you are having a black-tie or casual wedding, it’s OK to let guests know about this on your wedding invitations. We can even choose to design your invitations in a way that represents the day’s dress code. For instance, we can use bright colors and a playful font on invitation cards that are meant for a casual wedding party.
