When Do I Order My Invitations? {Ideas and Information}

He's proposed and you said yes! And now you're planning your dream wedding. What do you do next? Well when it comes to ordering your invitations and other wedding stationery we have a guide for you to go by. Remember, ordering earlier is always best. And ordering a sample of the invitations you plan on using is always a great idea so you know exactly what they'll look like. Custom stationery takes time. We want to provide the perfect product for you and your big day!

For custom-made invitations and reception stationery, it is best to start planning your invitations 10 months before the big day. Ideally, you send out the save-the-dates six months before the wedding (twelve if the wedding is a destination wedding or out of the country), so this allows plenty of time for consultations, design meetings, printing, and (if you choose to do so) calligraphy. We will work with any timeline, but to avoid rush fees, try to start the process as soon as you can.

Below is an estimated timeline of when you should order your paper goods:

10 Months - begin researching invitations and contact stationers
8 to 7 Months - order save-the-dates
6 Months - mail out save-the-dates
4 to 3 Months - order invitations
3 to 2 Months - order programs & reception stationery
2 Months to 6 Weeks - mail out invitations

Martha Stewart, as always, is a great resource for all things wedding and has created a wedding timeline for every bride-to-be so you can keep track of everything you need to do and see.
