When couples, particularly the brides, begin to go through the large albums of wedding invitations, some of them start to realise that their budget limits them to the type of wedding invitations that they have always dreamed about. As such, many couples find themselves contemplating whether or not they should make their wedding invitations themselves, or whether they should hire a professional to design and print the invitations for them.
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.
