“I just got engaged and I am not sure when to send out our invitations and save-the-dates. Can you help?”
Although the timeline for sending out invitations and save the dates can be a daunting task, here are some basic guidelines for you to follow:
Engagement Party – send out invites 3 to 4 weeks before the celebration
Save the Dates – 6 months before your wedding, 8 months if your planning a destination wedding.
Wedding Invitations – 6 weeks before the wedding, 8 weeks if your guests have to travel to your venue.
Bridal Shower Invites - 4 to 6 weeks before the shower date
Thank You Notes – traditionally within 1 month of receiving, however it is acceptable up to 3 months after receiving the gift.
