Invitations are the first hint your guests will have of the nature
of your special event, they set the tone and mood for your wedding.
When picking out styles of wedding invitations you need to remember
the wedding invitation may be the only clue your guests will have
in deciding how to dress, what to bring and what to expect.
Make sure you count the addresses and not the guests when budgeting
for your wedding invitations.
What special arrangement need to be made for my out of town guests?
Should I send them their wedding invitations earlier then my local
guests? The best thing to do is send your out of town guests a "save
the date card" which
contains important information about the wedding as well as information
about any special accommodations that have been reserved for them.
This card should be mailed out as early as one year before the wedding
so that your guests have time to plan and make flight reservations
Q. May some guests be invited to the reception, but not the wedding?
A. Yes, this is perfectly acceptable.
Q. Is it mandatory to send a thank you to someone I thanked in person
or on the phone?
A. Yes, social etiquette says that you should always mail out a thank
you note, regardless of if there was already a verbal thank you.
Q. When should thank you notes be mailed out?
A. A written thank you note should be sent out as soon as possible
after receiving the gift. This is normally within 2 to 3 weeks of receipt.
Q. What's the acceptable length of time in which a couple should send
thank-you notes for wedding gifts?
A. Thank-you notes should be written as soon as possible and it is
ideal to start sending them out as soon as you start receiving gifts.
You do have up to about three months to send them all out.
