The Big Day is coming and you have a hundred things to do! The dress, the food, the reception, the videographer and so much more………..Where do you start?

Easy. You start with your INVITATIONS – the Wedding Invites Wedding Invites

Why? Because YOUR INVITATIONS will set the MOOD and TONE for the entire wedding event. Besides telling your guests the basic information about what to expect on the Big Day, your personalized invitations will create both EXCITEMENT and ANTICIPATION by allowing your family and friends to actually ENVISION your ceremony and reception by simply opening up an envelope!

Make sure to include a Wedding Website that outlines all the details of the event including: WHERE, WHEN, DRESS ATTIRE and any other particulars you want your guests to know.

Speaking of that Wedding Website, don’t make the rookie mistake of forgetting about the RSVP cards. Basic Invite wedding website RSVP

These ‘enclosure cards’ go way beyond simple ‘etiquette’. The RSVP cards are absolutely essential for quick and easy communication between you and your guests. More importantly, they provide direct information to you on the NUMBER of attendees actually coming as well as giving you DATA on how much food and drink to have on hand. Bottom line, RSVP cards serve as your statistical spreadsheet on all things numerical.

Remember to give your guests a CLEAR DEADLINE DATE as to when they need to return this card – we suggest no later than 2 MONTHS prior to your event! You can ORDER your response cards at the SAME TIME you order you INVITATIONS to keep things COORDINATED and UNIFORM.

Finally, you can’t talk about INVITATIONS without talking about the all-important THANK YOU CARDS. Without a doubt, most couples simply dread and put off this ‘duty’ as much as they can. SHAME on you! Besides being considered proper protocol, sending a personalized and ELEGANT THANK YOU card is simply just the decent thing TO DO! Elegant Thank You cards

Remember, your friends and family took time out of their schedules and their lives to help you CELEBRATE your special day. Now it’s your turn to return the favor with a customized THANK YOU CARD made personal by your own handwritten comments. Keep it short and sweet but make sure to include mention of their gift – be specific- or just of their attendance. BUT HURRY UP…….’Thank You’ cards should be on their way within 3 MONTHS after your BIG DAY!
