Your wedding invitations are a very important item in your wedding planning. After all, how will all your guests know when and where your wedding will be! The style of your invitations should mirror your wedding theme. For example, if you are having a black-tie wedding, then your invitations should look classic and formal. 

Here are the most asked questions couples have about invitations:

When do I order the Invitations? The time frame for ordering the invitations is around four months before the wedding. Make sure you proofread the invitations very carefully and have your wedding planner proofread them too. It is always great to have another set of eyes look at the invites.

When do I mail the Invitations? The invitations should be mailed six to eight weeks before the wedding.

When should the RSVP date be? The RSVP date should be four weeks before the wedding. Use an easy to date to remember, like June 1st. 

Should I use an online RSVP? If you have a wedding website you can use an online RSVP. Make it easy for your guests.

What if all the responses aren’t in by the RSVP date? Call the guests who have not responded and ask them if they have received your invitation. Tell them you are concerned that the invitation might have gotten lost in the mail and the RSVP date has passed.

Have fun with the process of designing and ordering your invitations! This means that your wedding day is almost here!
