Plan ahead, order early. _ It's good to start early when choosing wedding invitations. You and your partner will need time to research and discuss the various choices available for your invitations. If you look early enough, you may even have time to request samples from various companies. Ordering your wedding invitations at least 6 months in advance will give you a cushion of time to allow for printing of the invitations and correction of any errors that may occur in printing. You also need to account for the time it takes to assemble your invitations and mailing them out to give sufficient time for a response. Plan on ordering 20 to 25 extra invitations in case they are needed because of mistakes in addressing the invitations or if you find you need to add additional guests to the list.
Will you settle for a ready_made template? Or, will you create a specially_designed, customized wedding card? If you want to create something unique, then you must plan in advance _ at least 2ι months in advance. You can also consider ready_made wedding invitations templates, which are stocked by reputed wedding invitation printers. Will some wedding guests come from faraway places? If yes, send them a simple invite a couple of months in advance just to ensure that they do not make any plans around the time of your wedding. You can state in this plain Jane card that a formal wedding invitation will follow. Wedding invitations must include a booklet (that fits into a pocket) that lists a schedule of events. Such booklets help the guests know what's coming next at them. However, do not make this a very wordy affair _ you don't want the guest to keep flipping through the pages trying to find some find information while an important ceremony is going on.
