Frequently asked questions
- When should I send the wedding invitations? The general rule is 8 -12 weeks before the wedding. It gives everybody time to plan, particularly if you have out-of-town guests who will need to travel. If you are planning on getting married overseas though, you may want to consider sending them much earlier (around 3 months beforehand) so that your guests can save up to book their flights and accommodation.
- How should I word my invitation? Is there a formula? There is a traditional way to word your wedding invitations but this will depend very much on the kind of wedding you are throwing. The traditional Anglo-Saxon wording is along the lines of: "Dear Mr James, Mr and Mrs Jones and Mr and Mrs Peters request the honour of your presence at the marriage of Mary Jones and Tom Peters". However, many couples are now opting for more informal wording, such as "Kell & James, We are getting married! Please come to celebrate with us at …. Love, Mary and Tom".
- Where do I put the information about dress code? The dress code information is generally placed at the bottom right-hand corner.
Details to include on wedding invitations
The ideal invitation should tell your guests everything they need to know about your wedding so that you don't need to contact each guest individually. To ensure your guests have all the information they need for your big day, remember to include the following:
- The basics: Your wedding invitations should include who is getting married along with the names of your parents. If you are having your ceremony at a venue different from your reception, both addresses and the start times should also be printed, including the time the meal will be served. If your reception will be held at the same place as the ceremony, a simple "reception to follow" will suffice.
- Dress code: The dress code should always be included on the wedding invitation so that your guests know what is appropriate. Remember no one likes to be under or over dressed, so make it clear if your wedding is a formal or low-key affair. If you're having a themed wedding, make that theme very clear too.
- Accommodation information: If you are having your wedding overseas or out of town, let your guests know about the accommodation possibilities and who to contact to make a reservation.
- RSVP: Include the date you would like your guests to RSVP by as well as the contact details of the person you would like them to RSVP to.
Tips to saving money on wedding invitations
- Shop around for a great deal. Nowadays, there are so many printing and paper companies that offer great deals and services on wedding invitations. For instance, Vistaprint has a fantastic range of stylish wedding invitation templates that can be easily personalised with your own message and graphics. A service that posts the cards to your mailing list for you, potentially saving you a bundle on postage fees, is also available.
- With so many printing techniques to choose from, how you choose to print can either cost or save you money. Embossed prints are typically pricier than flat ink, but it’s still best to do your research as you might find a flashy printing trick on sale.
- Bulk buying is always the cheapest option. If you can get your thank you cards as a part of the wedding invitation package as well, you may want to consider doing so as it will often save you money in the long run.
- Don’t forget to count the postage costs.
- Proofread your invitations before you order them to ensure there are no mistakes. Triple check them and then get someone else to proofread them for you too.
- Order extras in case you make a mistake or forget someone. Better to do it now than later.
