When should I order my wedding invitations?

When should I order my wedding invitations?

This article refers to ordering from a stationery vendor or store (if you are ordering online, you might still want to follow some of these guidelines). So, how far in advance of your wedding date should you order your wedding invitations? Its a good question…and I get it all the time. I generally recommend ordering them five to six months ahead. This timing is typically not too early, and not too late. Let’s first talk about the “not too early” part. You can start looking for invitations whenever you want. But you can’t actually order the invitations until you have some key information including: -exact number of households invited -Ceremony location/date/time -Reception location/date/time -entree selections (if you need to provide them to your venue) -website URL (if you want to include that on your invitations) -hotel block information (if you want to include that on your invitations) You also want to know who is “hosting” the event. Is it you as a couple? Or one or both of your parents? That is important information because it affects the way the invitation is worded. Then, once you have all of the above information…ask yourself…are the details subject to change?   You don’t want to order invitations, have them printed, and then decide to alter your ceremony time/reception as the date gets closer.  Or that you need more invitations.  Or that you are moving and need to change your return address.  So really think about the logistics and details and decide whether you are ready to set them in stone. Now for the “not to late” part…. Once you have all that information, typically five to six months ahead, you should get...

Five Tips for Staying Within your Wedding Invitation Budget

Five Tips for Staying Within your Wedding Invitation Budget

If you have started looking for your wedding invitation, you have no doubt already looked at the pricing and considered an Evite!  Its true, wedding invitations can be expensive. In my experience, the average brides spends (at least) $1250 dollars for 100 invitation suites (invitation, response set, reception card, return address). Most couples decide that, like most components to the wedding, actual invitations are worth the cost.   The wedding invitation serves a number of purposes including the obvious…it extends an invitation to guests for the wedding.  The invitation is also a direct representation of the event and the hosts.  The choice of paper, printing process and design set the tone of the wedding whether it be a chic and trendy rustic barn wedding, a black tie gala, or an afternoon tea.  So be sure to budget appropriately early on for your invitations. The choice of paper, printing process and design, as well as a few other factors, also affect what you will be spending. Here are the biggies broken down. Paper The heavier the paper stock, the more expensive the invitation. The weight of paper is determined by the paper maker, and is measured in pounds per ream (i.e. a ream of 500 sheets that weighs 80 lbs is considered “80 lb stock”). An 80 lb stock will be less expensive than a 110 lb stock. A 110 lb stock will be less expensive than a 220 lb stock, 300 or 600. Two layers of stock will be more expensive than one.  The texture of the paper also influences the price. Stock with a textured feel or a filigree embossing throughout will...
