Wedding Invitations – When to send them out???

Happy Wedding Wednesday!

Have I got an exciting topic for you today!!!

Stationery timelines!

You may be saying “huh?” Right about now, but I promise that I will explain it all to you! (And if you have any questions, shoot me an e-mail at hello@uptowndesigns.ca)

I know, I know, maybe this topic isn’t something that is terribly exciting to you, but it really is necessary information when you are planning your wedding!

Over the years that I have been in business, THE most popular question is:

“When should I send out my invitations?”

So, I decided to put a handy little chart together for all of you lovely couples who have this burning question!

This chart will give you an overall idea of the timing for ordering and sending stationery related to your wedding.

There are some other little suggestions however that I am going to point out.

1 – If you are planning a destination wedding, sending out a Save The Date to your guests is essential! Your guests will have to plan for this expense so providing as much time as possible to them is in very good taste.

2 – You’ll notice that the general rule is to send your invitations around 6-8 weeks before your wedding. There are however situations where you should provide a little extra time for your guests to plan to attend. For example, if you are hosting a local wedding and have not sent out a Save The Date, you should give your guests a little extra time so I would suggest sending your invitations out 8-10 weeks before the big day.
Also, if you choose to host your wedding on a long weekend when people may plan to go away, you should definitely send your invites out 10-12 weeks prior.

I hope this little chart has been helpful! If there are any other scenarios that you would like to know about, please send me a message!

As always, have a fabulous day!
