  • Guestbooks are the perfect reminder of who attended your wedding, so why not provide them with an interactive assignment that's creative:

    You’ve spent so much time planning your wedding events, so it’s essential that your guests have enough notice so they can plan to attend! There’s a fine line to giving your guests enough advanced notice and sending your invitations too far ahead of time so that people forget to RSVP. Here are a few guidelines.

    Set up a wedding website right away. As soon as you set a date, create a wedding website so that you’ll have a home base for all of your wedding and travel information. You can send out the link to your guests via email, or include it on your save-the-date.

    Save-the-dates If you’re having a destination wedding where most of your guests will have to travel, we recommend sending your save-the-dates at least eight months in advance – even up to a year if possible. You’ll want to include all the pertinent travel and accommodations information so that your guests can book right away. If you’re having a hometown wedding with little travel involved, send your save-the-dates at least six months in advance.

    Bridal Shower Invitations and Other Pre-Wedding Events Bridal shower invitations are usually mailed out three to four weeks in advance – same goes for engagement parties. Set the RSVP date for one to two weeks in advance of the big day.

    Wedding Invitations Wedding invitations should be mailed out six to eight weeks before the wedding date. Ask your guests to return their RSVP cards by at least two weeks, preferably three, before the wedding date so that you and your vendors have enough time to create table assignments, escort cards, etc.  

    Rehearsal Dinner and Post-Wedding Brunch The rehearsal dinner invitations should be mailed out separately a few days – no more than a week - following the wedding invitations so guests can make travel plans accordingly. If you’re having a post-wedding brunch that everyone is invited to, feel free to include a card with your wedding invitations and on your wedding website, too.

  • Personality makes any wedding shine, and it doesn't have to cost a fortune! Whether you're whimsical, romantic, modern, classic, or anywhere in between, get creative in your stationery, including your ceremony programs. Here are three of our favorites: 

    Illustrations - This ceremony program serves as double-duty! Since it's a fan, it keeps guests cool but also provides pictures of the wedding party participants. That way no one will be playing the name game.

    Booklets - Make it interactive! DIY a booklet that has three different tabs: the ceremony timeline, wedding party, and sincere thanks.

    FAQs- Two families becoming one means that not everyone will know each other. So give guests a bit of background about yourselves: your first date, your proposal story, your favorite food, sports, or hobbies, or even your dreams.
