This is a very brief, straightforward guide to arranging and sending your paper goods. These suggestions are industry standard, but if you have any questions, feel free to contact me anytime!
When should I contact a wedding stationer?
Contact your stationer about 4-6 months out, preferably six months, as this allows for a smooth and careful process.
When should I send “Save the Dates”?
For local weddings, plan to send Save the Dates 6-8 months before the wedding.
For destination weddings, plan to send your Save the Dates 8-10 months out.
When should I send my invitations?
For local weddings, plan on sending them 8 weeks before the wedding and 12-16 weeks if you didn’t send Save the Dates.
For destination weddings, send them 3-4 months before the wedding and 5-7 months if you didn’t send Save the Dates.
When should I create the RSVP deadline?
If you’re having a local wedding, make the deadline 1 month before the wedding.
If you’re having a destination wedding, make the RSVP deadline 6 weeks before the wedding.
