PROOFREAD, THEN PROOFREAD AGAIN

Triple-check that everything on your invite is correct. You can take a screenshot of everything completed before ordering. Send these to your partner, mom, and maid of honor to review before ordering. The last thing you want to do is re-order your invites. Below are common typos to look for.

 

1. Are your names and parents' name spelled correctly?
2. Does the wording make sense?
3. Is the address location correct?

Once you've made sure your invitations are free of typos, it's time to print! 

DETAILS AND INFORMATION

Make sure you have your wedding website listed on your invitation. If you have out-of-town guests, list as many details as you can if they aren't familiar with the area. Let them know of the hotels that you've either got a block of rooms at or ones close to the venue. You can also list fun things to do in the area like entertainment centers, breweries, and wineries. If your guests need to pay for parking at the venue, it's a good idea to make them aware so it isn't a surprise when they arrive.

MAILING YOUR INVITATIONS

Before you mail anything, make sure you take the fully assembled envelope to the post office so they can weigh it. If the envelope is bulky, you will need to pay extra postage to get it to its destination. If you can, avoid sending anything during the month of December. This will help you avoid the holiday rush and your invitation possibly getting lost. We strongly recommend you take the assembled envelopes to the post office and hand them to an employee to get mailed instead of placing them in the mail bins in front of the post office. 

ADDRESS THE ENVELOPES CORRECTLY

How you address the outer envelope will indicate who is invited. On that note,

double-check that your guests' names and addresses are spelled correctly.

Nothing is worse than seeing your name spelled wrong.

 

Below is a quick guide to addressing your wedding invite.

  • If you would like your guest to bring a date simply state their name "and guest"

  • If you would like your guest to fly solo - address the envelope to just them - Miss. Macy Brown

  • Want a child-free wedding? Address the envelope to just the parents – Mr. and Mrs. Fitz

  • Bring the whole family! Address the envelope to The Fitz Family

RSVP CARDS AND EXTRAS

Not everyone will send in their RSVP card, and that's okay! But how do you know who didn't send it back? It's simple! Keep a spreadsheet of who you sent an invitation to. Flip the RSVP card over and on the bottom corner mark it with a number. Number 1, the bride's parents, number 2, the groom's parents, and so on. Didn't receive # 17? No problem,! Just take a look at your spreadsheet and you'll see who you need to make a call to.

THANK YOU CARDS

When you order your invitation suite, add your thank you cards. When you begin receiving your RSVPs back, address your thank you cards to save you time from having to do it after the honeymoon.

 

Send a thank you card out to everyone who gave you a gift, 1-3 months after the wedding, even if they didn't attend. 

Be personal and specific in your thank you cards.

NAME CARDS

Name cards are a great way to not only escort guests to their tables but also to tell catering who ordered which entree if having a plated dinner vs a buffet or stations. Below are a few examples for you. I

If you're using them to decipher who is getting what entree, you can color code the ribbon or put an icon on the name card to represent the dish!
