Yes, we do. Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life, and nothing less than perfection is paramount. Simply find an invite that you like the look of and click ‘sample’ and go through the ordering process.
Wedding invitations are strictly necessary. They give your guest all the information they need: who's getting married, where they're getting married, and where the reception is being held. You could tell guests one by one all these details over text, if you want, but it's far too easy to forget who you've told and who you haven't. Plus, they may miss your text altogether.
Also, your wedding should be a special day. Using formal means like printed wedding invitations makes the day more special, and a lot more special than texting your invite to somebody.
The wording on an invitation is guided by etiquette. The rules of etiquette tell you how to do things at weddings. In this context, they tell you how to formally announce your wedding through your invitation: the order things are said in, the words used, whose names are on the invite and the location, and more.
The best thing to do first is to find a minimum number of invites you’re going to need, so first, go through your guest list and establish that number. Next, add 10% to it, and that’s the number of invitations you should order. We always recommend this because of things like adding additional guests and making mistakes. Remember, if sending to a couple, you only need to send one invitation, not two.
Wedding invites are traditionally sent six to eight weeks before the wedding. Two months or so may seem like a long time but bear in mind that your guests will need to take time off work to attend. This gives them enough time to arrange this, if they haven't already (e.g. if you sent them a Save the Date).
However, you should send out invites earlier if you're having a wedding at a destination abroad. This will allow people not only to take time off work but arrange travel. The same applies if some of your guests will need to travel from another country to be at your wedding: they should be invited early.
The wedding invite includes lots of information. It tells the guest who is getting married, where the ceremony is being held, and where the reception is being held if there is one. This is the core function of the invite.
We often get asked if you could email wedding invitations and we would always advise against this. Some common reasons are:
◉ An emailed invitation feels less special than a physical invite
◉ Peoples email addresses change more than their home addresses do
◉ It’s easy to miss an email and there’s a risk an emailed invitation may go into their spam or junk folder
◉ People tend to take emails less seriously that formal postal invites
All this combined means that it's a far better idea to send a physical wedding invite to your guests than an email or a text. Besides, personalised printed invites are far cheaper than you might expect.
