Invitations may be overwhelming, especially since the majority of individuals do not have expertise in sending out wedding invitations. To begin with, you have to find what invitations you like, you have to make a decision as to what things to place on it, you need to make certain that it’s edited, and that you’re not currently missing any info… the list goes on!
Of course, you want it to be amazing, but bear in mind that the wedding invitation is your formal assurance that the guest will understand all your wedding details. Here are 8 common wedding invitation mistakes to avoid as a way to ensure that they do!
That is exactly what your wedding website is for: the extra info. You do not have to include at which you’re registered or what hotels your guest needs to reserve their rooms. By removing information that is not required, it will help ensure the invitation is active.
Ask your guests to RSVP, at least a month or month and a half before your wedding day. That will give you the time to follow up with the guests that have not RSVP’d (there will be a great amount)! The caterer requires seating assignments or a head count in advance and you will need to plan this ahead of time.
Bring a fully assembled invitation to the post office, and have them weight it to see how much every invitation will cost to mail. From there, you can even order stamps that are customized. It would be awful to get 150 invitations returned in the mail to you because you did not have sufficient postage.
Your guests might think you are cheap by not adding postage on your response card, and it will greatly reduce their response time.
Addressing invitations can be hard, but knowing how you’re inviting someone creates a major difference.
Either pay for printed addresses, hire a calligrapher, or locate someone with great handwriting to help out you. No exceptions.
Mistakes happen, but make sure to Be Ready. The mistake is, something spills on the duvet, or your dog got to it, also it could have just ripped when the invitations were being assembled by you. By having a few backups help yourself!
The only information you really need is the time, date, and location. After that is verified, you should begin working on building your invitations. The sooner you do this, the better, since everything from the printing, collecting, and mailing takes more time than you think.
Obviously, you’ll want to make sure someone proof-reads your entire invitation prior to it being printed and sent, but beyond the basics, avoiding these common wedding invitation mistakes will help your wedding become the success you’ve always dreamed of!
