  • How Much Do You Know About Wedding Invite Etiquette?

    How well informed are you when it comes to wedding invitation etiquette? Chances are you’re feeling a bit lost with everything from when to send out your wedding invitations, what to include in your wedding stationery suite and what wedding invitation wording to use. If you’re nodding along as you read this, grab a glass of wine and keep reading - we’ve got all the answers for you!

    When Should You Send out Your Wedding Invitations?

    You can never give enough notice so we usually advise customers to send out their save the date cards at least three to four months in advance. As we’ve said before, no one’s going to complain about being notified in advance so follow up your save the dates with your wedding invitations at least six to eight weeks before your big day.

    If you’re planning a destination wedding, plan to send out your destination wedding invites earlier to give your guests plenty of time to save up for their airline tickets and make arrangements to travel overseas - something everyone will appreciate, especially guests with kids!

    What’s the Best RSVP Deadline to Set?

    Again this really depends on your wedding theme, but the general rule of thumb is two to three weeks prior to the event. This will give you plenty of time to reach a final headcount and advise the caterers instead of having to guess and having a whole lot of RSVPs closer to the date once you’ve paid.

    Should Registry Details be Included on Save the Dates or Wedding Invitations?

    Save the Dates

    While several couples opt to include their registry details on either save the date cards or wedding invites, wedding etiquette dictates that this is a big no no. It is still considered impolite to include registry info on your wedding invites, instead include it on a wishing well card or opt to your wedding party, parents and close friends pass around information on where you’re registered to other guests.

    How Should Wedding Invites Be Addressed to Guests With Titles

    In the case of wedding invitations being sent to guests with titles, the following general rules apply:

    ● Generally when a husband is a doctor, the invitation wording includes the title as “Doctor and Mrs. Harrison”, while if the wife is a doctor it should be “Doctor Amy and Mr. Peter Harrison”. If both are doctors the wedding invitation can be simply addressed as “Drs. Amy and Peter Harrison.” ● When addressing a wedding invitation to a single woman it should be address as “Ms” unless she’s a doctor.
