SAVE THE DATES
Save the dates are the very first glimpse your guests get of your fabulous big day! Traditionally, save the dates are mailed out six months to a year in advance, with destination weddings leaning more towards a year or more! Always send sooner, rather than later, allowing your guests plenty of time to book the appropriate travel reservations.
After your amazing save the dates hit the mail, your next step will be invitations. You will want to give your guests plenty of notice to come celebrate with you! Plan to send your invitations two to three months before your big day. If you did not send save the dates the aim for closer to three to four months.
DAY OF DETAILS
Invitations aren’t the only thing you will need when you tie the knot. Be sure to consider other day of paper goods such as table numbers, programs, seating charts, place cards and more! Typically these items are some of the final details and are designed once all of your RSVPs have been received. But it’s never too early to start on the design concept!
Yay! Your wedding day is quickly approaching and it’s getting down to the details. You will want your response cards to arrive approximately one month before you say “I do”. This will allow for a few late replies to come in as well as give you plenty of time to get an accurate head count to your other vendors.
THANK YOU CARDS
Last but certainly not least, be sure to send your thank you cards!
These lovely notes should go out one to two months after your big day!
