Novelty and Seasonal Invitations

Save The Date Announcements
Allow ample time for out-of-towners to make travel arrangements by sending Save the Date announcements in advance.

Maps and Additional Enclosures
Inform your family and friends with a customized map and hotel reservation card to familiarize them with each location.

Ordering Wedding Invitations
It is advisable to order invitations at least 3-4 months before your wedding date. This will allow sufficient time for assembling and addressing the invitation. It is also wise to order an additional 25 envelopes to cover any mistakes made in addressing.

A return address on the flap of the outer envelope is essential. This will allow undeliverable invitations to be returned to you. Have the return address printed in advance to save you time.

Number the Invitations
Because response cards are often returned unsigned or illegibly, it is suggested that you number-code your guest list and the back of each response card on the lower back corner in small print for ease of tracking. Request that cards be returned by a date that is at least 3 weeks before the date of the wedding or event.

Mailing the Invitations
Invitations should be mailed 10 to 15 weeks before the wedding. Be sure to verify questionable postal codes or envelope sizes, and to weigh a completely assembled invitation at the post office to determine the correct postage required.
