Etiquette 101: When To Send Wedding Invitations?
Question: My fiance and I got engaged last month and are planning an October wedding. When should we be sending our Save The Dates and wedding invitations?
Answer: Traditionally, wedding invitations are sent out six to eight weeks before the big day. This will give the guest time to clear their schedules and make travel arrangements if they are coming from out of town. If you are planning a destination wedding it is customary to send out your invitations up to three months in advance to allow guests to set up travel.
Request to have your RSVPs back 4 weeks before the wedding. This gives you time to follow up with non-responders and update quantities on rental items and flowers with plenty of time to spare.
If you are planning to send out Save The Dates, they are traditionally sent out six to eight months before you wedding. Make sure you have your wedding website complete so you can include this information on the Save the Date.
