A Wedding Invitation Timeline

Eight Months to a Year Ahead – Order thank-you notes with your maiden name to acknowledge early gifts, and notes with your new name or monogram for personal correspondence after the wedding. If you plan a wedding that will take place around a busy holiday season or plan to invite guests to join you for a destination wedding, also order save-the-date cards.

Six Months Ahead – Mail Save-the-Date cards

Four to Six Months Ahead – Order wedding invitations. Also order response cards, reception cards, and At Home cards. Consider a printed directions card and accommodations card with hotel information for out-of-town guests.

Six to Eight Weeks Ahead – Take a completely assembled invitation to the post office to have the proper amount of postage determined. Mail invitations.
