    Bonus tip! the timing of your invitations

    When to send your wedding invitation cards depends heavily on the length of your engagement.

    If you’re planning a longer engagement (12 months or more) and/or a destination wedding, it’s also not a bad idea to send out a ‘Save the Date’ to allow people enough time to factor your wedding into their life plans and book accommodation.

    Send your wedding invitation cards for your guests to receive them around eight weeks before the actual day.

    This way you have enough time to plan your seating chart and inform your venue of the numbers guests and any dietary requirements!
    Here’s a handy table for your reference


    Wedding Invitation cards are a small but essential detail to your wedding planning so don’t leave it until the last minute!

    Opt for e-invites if you know your guests are relatively tech-savvy and you want to have an easier time sorting out your RSVP’s and seating chart arrangements.
