In this featured expert tip, Danika shares the answers to the question she is asked most more often than any other; “When do we need to send out our wedding stationery!?”
Stationery timeline? Okay. Danika totally gets that this topic isn’t exciting at first glance, but she can also tell you that it really is necessary information when you are planning your wedding! “Throughout my years in business, THE most popular question is; When should I send out my invitations?” And so to answer this, Danika says, “I decided to put a handy little chart together [right] for all of you lovely couples who have this burning question! This chart will give you an overall idea of the timing for ordering and sending stationery related to your wedding.”
Danika makes a couple of ADDITIONAL suggestions…
1. If you are planning a destination wedding, sending out ‘Save The Date’ cards is essential! Guests will have to budget and plan ahead for this, so giving them as much time as possible is always in very good taste.
2. Even though the general rule is to send your invitations out 6 to 8 weeksbefore your wedding, there are exceptions. For example, if you are hosting a local wedding and have not sent out a Save The Date, you should give your guests a little extra time – 8 to 10 weeks ideally. And if you host your wedding on a long weekend, send your invites out 10 to 12 weeks ahead.
