Invitations (after save the dates) are your first chance to introduce your wedding theme to your guests. For example, if you are having a beach-themed wedding, your invitations should be tied to that theme somehow.

To get you stated with picking out the ones for you, here are seven more tips:

  • Send out your invitations two months prior to your wedding. This gives your guests enough time to respond without it being too far in advance.

  • Before buying your invitations, it is a good idea to order a few invitation samples.

  • Don't forget to set a budget. Invitation, save the date and thank you note budgets are an area that can be cut if you need more room in your budget for other wedding items.

  • Waiting too long to order your invitations can cause big issues. Try to pick them out and order them six months prior to your wedding day.

  • Be extra clear on dates, times and locations. It is also a good idea to provide detailed directions to the ceremony and reception locations.

  • Avoid asking for a certain type of gift, like money, in your invitations. It is better etiquette to have your wedding party spread the word instead.

  • Always hand write your thank you notes. Printed thank you notes are very impersonal, and writing them yourself gives you a chance to communicate how thankful you are to each guest.

Buying invitations online has become a very popular thing to do. It is convenient, easy to do and you can get some really great deals online.
