The countdown to your big day has officially begun. With everything that goes into planning a wedding it’s hard to stay organized and on task. At Take Note! Creations, we’ve put together a complete wedding stationery timeline to help you remember some of those important details.
START doing research on what style invitations you and your fiancée prefer (theme, color, style), finalize your guest list and determine a budget.This is also the time to have your engagements pictures taken and ORDER your Save the Date Announcements.
MAIL your Save the Dates. If you are having a destination wedding, which requires your guests to take time off work and make travel arrangements, mail the announcements closer to the 9 month mark. Local and more scaled down weddings can be sent out near the 6 month mark.
SCHEDULE a design consultation and ORDER your invitations. Remember, custom invitation designs can take a little longer to produce than ordering out of a book or online.
Now it’s real! MAIL your invitations no earlier than 8 weeks out and but no later than 6 weeks out. The exception to this rule is if you are having destination wedding, then invitations can be sent out at 10 weeks. It’s also time to ORDER other stationery items such as: Programs, Escort Cards, Menus, Table Numbers and Thank You Cards.
The Big Day!:
Keep Calm & Enjoy!
1-3 Months After:
Remember to MAIL out your Thank You Cards.
