Now that you have set your wedding date, you will need to decide the wedding date. As soon as you have that set, you will need to start looking at your options for wedding invitations. Keep in mind that the first impression you make on your guests comes from what they see when they open the envelope. For this reason, you want your wedding invitations to reflect your personal style and the type of wedding you have planned.

When you are six to eight months from your wedding date, visit several stationary or bridal shops, or get on the Internet to see what options you have. This will allow you to look at the different style invitations as well as associated price. As you browse through the different choices, make a list of paper types, printing style, color, and arrangement that you like best so you can conduct numerous comparisons. You also want to consider the weight of the paper, the shade of preferred color, size of invitation and envelope, and special color schemes. Another important consideration to track is the order and shipping time required.

Once you have narrowed your choices down, start making your guest list. Keep in mind that this can be time-consuming and a bit stressful so try to enjoy the process. Be sure to cover both sides of the family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors. For the groom, it might be best to work with his mother on names, as he may not be privy to some of the information you need. Once you know the number of people to expect, you need to make some firm decisions.

If you will be sending out cards called, Save-the-Date cards, you want to go ahead an order about six months prior to the wedding. Schedule time with the company you plan to use to discuss the exact wording, and to look at the various choices for enclosures. By the time you are four months away, get your order in for the invitations. A popular option that many soon-to-be-married couples are turning to is calligraphy, which adds a unique and romantic flair. If this is something you have considered, you want to meet with the calligrapher around this same time. Once the invitations arrive, the calligraphy will be completed.

Three months ahead of your wedding date, you need to start addressing and assembling the invitations. Remember that all the envelopes will need to be hand addressed, so if you have a friend or family member with beautiful handwriting, you might consider asking for their assistance. You will also need to have one completed invitation weighed to make sure you have budgeted for the right amount of postage. With about eight weeks to go, take the invitations to your local post office and have the envelopes hand stamped. Once that is complete, the invitations you can be mailed. As you start receiving your RSVPs back, be sure to keep good records. Now that the invitations are done, you can turn your attention to something else.
