Good Evening! Yes, I Know, i mean… how often do I post in the evening, let alone in the middle of the week. Well, I wanted to touch on a few questions that I get often when meeting my couples. The answers are actually really simple and as long as you give yourself plenty of time, you’ll be able to avoid the stress that some deal with when planing a major event such as their wedding.
“When should the invitations be sent out?”
The actual invitations (invitations, RSVP, additional information) should be sent out to your guests about 6 to 12 weeks before the actual event. This way you give your guests plenty of time to make the necessary arrangements so that they can be at your event.
“What deadline should I set for the RSVP’s?”
For your RVSP’s I always suggest that the response date is set for no later than 3 weeks before the wedding. The reason being because there’s always someone who will forget to respond, or who thought they did but really didn’t. By setting your RSVP date this far in advance, you have the opportunity to call the guests who have not responded & see if they’re coming and you have time to inform your vendors about your head count.
“Where do I tell people that we have a wedding website?”
To inform your guests about your website, you have 2 places that are generally acceptable; on your Save the Date and as an insert with your invitations that is called the “Website Card”. Now, with this I will say that you do NOT put your wedding registry information in your invitation or on your Save the Date. Your wedding registry information is supposed to go on the bridal shower invitation OR on your wedding website.
