There are many ways to personalize your wedding invitations and increase the amount of romantic wording or accessories included in the invitation. The design of the invitation itself, your choice of color, paper, embellishments, and wording are all crucial to making the invitation truly your own. There are even small things you can do to personalize the invitation. One small thing that you can do is to choose specific stamps for your invitations and RSVP cards. Remember, you do not need to choose the "Love" stamps most couples do. There are so many postage choices out there today that the possibilities are virtually endless. You may even consider choosing a great picture of the two of you and print your own postage!
There are some extra stationery things that are required when ordering invitations. RSVP cards are required if couples are having a sit down dinner. Couples need to know the guest count to figure out how much food to order. It is no longer tradition to pay for postage for guests to send the RSVP card back to the couple. Send invitations early to give guests plenty of notice about the wedding. They should be sent out at least two months before the wedding and no more than four months before. Make the RSVP date between four and six weeks before the wedding. This helps you know exactly how many guests will show up.
