when to mail out wedding invitations

Designing your wedding invitations should not only reflect the importance of your day but also capture your personality as a couple. It’s a day you’ll never forget so we want you to create an invitation that will standout to you and your guests.

The process can be fun for both the Bride & the Groom and we want to help you through the process stress free. We’ve put together some helpful tips on the process of ordering your Wedding invitations and hope that it makes this part of wedding planning much easier.

1. Be sure to give yourself a timeline. This will ensure that you have enough time to for creating your design, delivery and the assembling & addressing prior to sending out to guests. We suggest placing your orders 3 - 4 months in advance and mailing your Invitations out to your guests about 6 – 8 weeks prior to the wedding to give your guests enough time to RSVP.

2. Work together to choose the style and colors of your Wedding Invitation that will fits your theme. Ask each other’s opinions on what is most important to them when selecting the right invitations (i.e. style, colors, wording). Ordering samples ahead of time of your favorite designs is a great way to decide together on which style works best. With our 3Free Samples promotion you wil be able to see and feel the designs in person, review our color chart & feel the different paper stocks. Remember, open communication and compromising may be key!

3. Choose color combinations that reflect your wedding theme and don’t be afraid to mix color combinations. If you need assistance, providing the designer with some photo inspirations of your flowers, décor and bridesmaids dresses can help too.

4. Choose wording the suites you and not tradition. Don’t be afraid to change wording around and personalize it to fit you.

5. REVIEW, REVIEW, REVIEW. Be sure to proofread your invitations more than once and get a second set of eyes to help make sure everything is correct as well. Triple check that your spelling, addresses, dates are all correct prior to approving. Trust us it will save you some tears.

The best part of the day was after we were married and had done some photos and had 20 minutes to ourselves before we were thrust back at out our adoring fans. Taking that time alone to sit and be happy together without any stress was really lovely moment.

What would I do differently? I would have kept it a little smaller and more intimate.

Advice for other couples? Don't sweat the small stuff. Seriously. No one is going to remember all of your decorations, ( I spent months making those pompoms) and while many of my girlfriends told me that everything was beautiful and the food was great... the comment I get the most is that EVERYONE had so much fun. I mean, we had a soul train dance off for crying out loud! .

Tell us about your special day.

Our wedding reception was held at Michaels parent's house in Milton, GA. It was an intimate party with only our closest friends and family. The house was wonderfully decorated and was the perfect setting for a family affair.

The wedding reception was wonderful! Everything was perfect and we had a blast!

Do you have any advice to couples that are planning their upcoming wedding?

Our advice: As much as you plan and stress yourself before the big day you really need to enjoy every moment of it. Once the day comes it is over in a fly. And don't forget to eat!

Reception Place Cards and Escort Cards

Escort Cards vs. Place Cards…While they both serve the same purpose these are two separate items. Read on to see, which fits your wedding reception best. Luckily for you, our Love vs Design place cards can be designed for both purposes!

Escort cards should be used as a guide to direct guests to their designated table. By writing the table number on each card, each guest will know their place. This is your chance to have some fun by getting creative with the way you display the cards at the entrance to your reception. You can choose to tie them into a fun wedding theme display or you can always keep it simple and classy. Whichever route you choose, your guests will appreciate the thought and effort you took to make them feel welcome!

Wedding Reception Place Cards and Escort Cards

Place cards may be used if you decide to use a seating chart instead of the escort cards. With the seating chart displayed for your guests to find their seat. Once a guest knows which table they are at, you can have place cards (a folded card with the guest name on them) to designate their appropriate seat at the table. For those who choose to use Escort cards, you may also choose to have place cards set at the table as well. Place cards can be very simple or you can make it a little more formal by having a calligrapher write out the names.

Unique Greeehouse Wedding

Adam & Sara were joined together as husband and wife among family and friends, just as they had hoped for on their wedding day. The bride tells us, “For Adam and me, our wedding day was most importantly a celebration of us. When we talked about how we wanted our day to feel, we wanted to make it a really fun party. We wanted our family and friends to have a great time and leave feeling like our day was uniquely ‘Sara and Adam’“. Read more from the bride herself in today’s Real Wedding as she gives us her recap of their special day.

ceremony

“We were married on June 1st at Planterra Conservatory in Michigan. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect. It was personal and quirky and full of love. We worked with our officiant to design our own ceremony. We asked our friends to choose their own readings, we included stories from family and friends, and we wrote our own vows. One of my absolute favorite moments of the day came after Adam’s vows when he wowed the crowd and everyone started applauding! It was such a fun, beautiful moment."

greenhouse venue

The beautiful venue was one of the many things we absolutely loved about our wedding. The greenhouse provided a gorgeous backdrop and it was easy for us to decorate by adding just a few of our own personal touches. Adam is a teacher and poker player, so our program and table numbers were chalkboards and we added vintage poker chips to the boutonnieres. I collect milk glass and floral hankies, so we used those for the centerpieces and ceremony space. Those little things were significant to us and made the space feel so much more special.

It was so nice to hear after the wedding that people had a good time, that they thought it was cool we did what we wanted, and that we seemed so relaxed and happy. I think a lot of people get too caught up in planning and forget the reason for the celebration.

On our wedding day, we were calm and able to focus on what was most important, each other! We had help from our wedding planner, Erika of EcoPosh Events, and we had a unique, fun, stress free day that was exactly what we wanted from start to finish. It wasn’t perfect, but it was perfect for us!
