Timing and Scheduling: The longer we have to finalize your invitations the better. Begin compiling your address list immediately. It can be like pulling teeth… you’re working with your parents, future in-laws, and your fiancé, so it can take time.

Perfect Design Style For You: Collect samples from magazines, colors from fabric, other invitations, ribbon, etc. and feel free to show them to me. It will assist my quest to understand your style, so that your invitation will reflect you and your personality

Save the Dates: Send them out around 6 months before the Big Day.  This allows your out of town guest to make travel arrangements.  Be sure to include your wedding website on the Save the Date.

Wedding Websites: Take advantage of technology!  It’s easy to disseminate information to your guests through a wedding website.  You can post travel information, accommodations, gift registries (I strongly advise NOT including this in your actual invitation), and ceremony and reception information.  You can also add personal touches like engagement photos, your engagement story, and your wedding party information.  Contact me for website recommendations.

Registry Information: This information should be spread by word of mouth or on your wedding website.  You may include your registry card in shower invitations, but your wedding invite should be viewed as an invitation to witness and attend your wedding, not a request for a gift.
