“Is it too early to order my invitations?”
“Am I getting late to order my invitations?”
“When is the good time to order our invitations?”
Mostly it is best to order your Save the Dates the moment your wedding date is set. This will help all your invitees plan their holidays, special events, and their travel and accommodation to your wedding. It’s best to send out the Save the Dates as early as you can and let them know about the details later on.
1 Year to Your Wedding
This is when you should order your Save the Date invitations. Ordering them, proofing and printing processes will take about 2-3 weeks, so you will receive your Save the Dates 11-12 months before your wedding. Your invitees will be able to know when you are getting married and exactly when they should be present for your wedding. They may be out of town, they may be planning their yearly holidays or they may be looking for the best time to visit their families. Let them know as early as you can, so that they can plan their special travels accordingly.
Also it’s best to know earlier, as they may want to search for flight tickets and hotels around your wedding venue, if you are planning an out-of-town wedding.
6 Months to Your Wedding
This is when we would suggest you to order your Wedding Invitations along with the information cards and RSVPs. Sometimes it takes time to decide what’ll be included in the invitations and what wordings will be put into information cards. Designing, proofing, printing and shipping also take time. If you order your invitations 6 months before your wedding, you will most probably receive them in 3-4 weeks. You will need some time to assemble everything and write names of the invitees on the invites. So it’s best to order them as early as you can.
3-4 Months to Your Wedding
This is the best time to order your Wedding Day Stationery. If you don’t know what your wedding menu will include, or what will your wedding program be like, then you can order them 1-2 months before the wedding. But we would suggest you to order your wedding day stationery the moment your wedding program, menu contents and how many table numbers you need are clear.
