Mail Save-the-Date Cards.
If you’re having a destination wedding, are marring over a holiday,
or are inviting many out-of-towners
After choosing a wedding style and budget, shop for invites.
If you’ll be commissioning a custom invitation
start the process now.
Now is the time to order labor-intensive invites,
like letterpress invitations or engraved invitations.
Allow time for printing and delivery; if you’re DIYing, start now.
If you’re ordering invitations with a quick turnaround,
do so now. Allow enough time for proofreading, printing and delivery.
Start addressing envelopes.
But if you’re using a calligrapher, hand them over 10 weeks ahead;
plan on 150 envelopes taking 2 weeks.
Assemble and weigh one complete invitation
to figure out the correct postage. Mail them six to eight weeks
before the wedding (10 weeks for destination I do’s)
Your RSVPs should start arriving
three to four weeks before the wedding.
A few days after the RSVP date has passed
call anyone who has not sent in a response.
