Archive for the ‘Postage for Invitations’ Category

Here are my quick wedding invitation mailing tips:

1. Before you mail your wedding invitations, take a completely assembled wedding invitation sample inside of an envelope to the post office and let a postmaster (not a machine) tell you the required and adequate postage to mail your wedding invitations.  The last thing you want is your wedding invitations sent back to you undeliverable due to insufficient postage.

2. Mail your invitations 6 to 8 weeks before the wedding.  For long distance weddings or destination weddings, consider mailing your wedding invitations around  8 to 10 weeks before the wedding, especially if you did not mail a save the date to your guests.  This will give your guests some time to complete their travel arrangements in time for your special day.

3. Request your guests to reply by at least 3 weeks to the wedding.  This will allow you call the late responders and confirm your final guest count for the wedding reception venue.

Wedding Invitations are typically mailed six to eight weeks before the wedding and in some cases four to six weeks before the wedding.  Most couples who did not mail their guests a save the date tend to mail their invitations earlier in the six to eight week time frame.  Frankly I always recommend the former.  Sending your wedding invitations earlier allows you more time to compile and verify your responses or RSVPs.  Another thing to keep in mind is – more and more wedding reception venues are requesting a final guest count earlier than “the traditional  two weeks before the wedding” deadline.
