When is the best time to send out your wedding invites?

The wedding isn't until June 2020 but when is a good time to send the invitations out?

Hi Carissa!

We wrote our thoughts in an article last year (on our web site, please see below), covering the little bits to consider when is the best time to send the invitations.

Hope you find useful!  :)

Have a nice Saturday!

Do I need to include the dress code on the invite?

Hello :)

In my opinion, including a general dress code is certainly very useful. At the same time, you offer guidance to the guests. I would include one, unless you really do not mind what they wear on the day....If a dress code is not included, the truth is... you may have some surprises....:) Hope this helps,

I know this gets asked all the time but can someone please advise me of the timing for invites?

I've seen many articles advising to send out invitations 6-8 weeks prior to the wedding. This doesn't seem enough time for me as I'm wanting to organise place cards, printed seating chart etc not to mention I'm sure I'll be chasing people up for RSVPs! My wedding is early November so I'd love some thoughts/advice. Thanks!

Hi Katherine!

This is a question we are often asked, and there are so many different opinions. Unfortunately, what etiquette and wedding “protocol” usually suggest is not necessarily compatible with reality. :)

If you want the short answer, I would say:

• If it’s a local wedding, where no accommodation or flights are required:

I would suggest 4-6 months before the wedding day to allow you to organise other services and products with vendors that require numbers or/and names (if needed).

• If it’s a destination wedding, where accommodation and flights are required, and you want them to make it to the event: 6 months to 18 months.

Just my thoughts hope it helps :)

can i send wedding invitations early?

How early is too early?

Hello there! This is a very personal decision and I think there is no right or wrong. My thoughts are: why not? How early do you mean? Is your wedding a "destination wedding" where lots of planning is required? We have many brides sending invitations almost 20 months before the wedding to avoid sending a SAVE the date card, or to give their guests more time to plan financially. We also had cases when the couples wish to know early who is coming to their weddings, as they have "second-tier" guests they would love to invite if their first lot cannot make it (usually for financial reasons). Many weddings, many situations but I think that yes, you can. Why not. :)

Warm Regards!

How can I word nicely that my wedding is to be adults only? No kids allowed!

Hello there!

I personally like to write on the main invitation:

"Adult reception to follow at..." but the ones advised below sound great too :)

Have a nice day!

Can I order thank you cards with my invitations to match?

Hello! Yes, you certainly can!

You can match the printed design/ font/ style, or/ and a paper style and elements (if you had a handmade invitation style). You can actually match every stationery item to the invitation. (place cards, menus, programs, etc)

Some couples order the thank you cards together with the invitations, others prefer to do after the wedding.

This can be useful especially if you want to add a photo and still coordinate with the rest of the stationery.

If you have more questions, please ask :)
