Laser Cut Wedding Invitations
Planning a wedding can be exciting and stressful at the same time. But your wedding invitations should not take your sleep away. At Shimmering Ceremony, we understand that your invitations are one of the most important elements of a successful & happy wedding, this is why we want to make this process a smooth and stress-free experience for you. Our team of experts have put together the most frequently asked questions about wedding etiquette to help you.
When should wedding invitations be mailed out?
Traditionally, guests will expect to receive wedding invitations between six to eight weeks before the wedding. If your guests don’t live where the wedding will be taking place, aim for eight weeks. You need to give them enough time for them to make travel arrangements.
If you are hosting a destination wedding, the standard time to mail invitations is at least three months.
How much time do you give guests to RSVP to a wedding?
Two to three weeks is the standard time to request RSVPs. However, talk to your cater and ask them when they require the final guest numbers. Most caters will request this information one week before, but this can slightly vary depending on the company. Is important that you request the RSVPs with enough time for you to make arrangements and finalize your seating chart.
If you are getting close to your deadline and some guests have not responded, is OK to contact them and ask them to mail as soon as possible their RSVPs.
What name goes first on wedding invitations?
A traditional wedding invitation, will have first the name of the bride and second the name of the groom.
If the bride’s parents are hosting the reception, a formal invitation will refer to the bride by her first and middle names, leaving off her last name. On the other hand, the groom will have his full name and title.
Where do you write “and guest” on a wedding invitation?
If you are using an outer and inner envelope, this is very simple. The inner envelope should list the title and last names all of the invited guests. In this section is where you will clearly tell your guests, who is invited.
So, in the outer envelope address the invitation to the main guest and the inner envelope address it to the main attendee plus the guest. For example, “Mr. Jones and Guest”.
If you are not using an outer and inner envelope, include a note with the invitation that explains that they can bring a guest. For example, “Dear Mr. Jones, You are welcome to bring a guest to our wedding. Just RSVP for 2 before July 23rd.”
What should I include in my wedding invitations?
The basic information every wedding invitation should have is:
- Bride’s & Groom’s name and last names.
- The date, time, and location of the wedding.
- The time and location of the reception.
- RSVP information.
