Helpful hints and things to remember when planning your event
Get your guests organized
We recommend organizing a list of all your guests full names, addresses and zip codes. This will make sending out save-the-dates, invites, and thank you cards easier. This will also double as a list of people attending your event.
You should also plan out all your dates in advance. Find out the exact day you're sending out the save-the-dates, the day you're sending out the invitations and the date the thank you wishes are mailed.
When to send it out
Save-the-dates are typically sent out 6-9 months in advance. If you have any international guests, this gives them time to arrange travel plans.
Invitations are usually sent out 6-9 weeks before the ceremony. If you feel you need more time to collect RSVP's from your guests, you can always send it out earlier.
It's always a good idea to order a few extra invitations in case of last-minutes additions of guests or keepsakes.
Thank you cards
If you're planning on ordering thank you cards, it's best to send them roughly 2 weeks after your wedding.
Remember, legibility is very important. It's always best to avoid as much confusion as possible with important information.
Spelling and grammar
Always double-check and triple-check your invitations and address labels. Always double-check any proofs that are sent you to make sure everything is spelt correctly. We're human and can make mistakes!
