Unsure when to order your wedding invitations and stationery or when your wedding invitations should be mailed out? I have created a wedding stationery timeline to help with this.

Simply pin the below image to your Pinterest board or save it to your phones camera roll for safe keeping.

When should we send out our save the dates?

Most couples send out save-the-date cards, they go out at 6-8 months. For a destination wedding, it is customary to mail save the dates 8 to 12 months in advance.

When should we send out our wedding invitations?

Invitations traditionally go out 6-8 weeks before the wedding. If it’s a destination wedding, give guests more time and send them out 3 months ahead of time.

When should we make the deadline for RSVPs?

Make your RSVP date 2-3 weeks before your wedding date to allow enough time for you to get a final head count to the caterer (one week before) and to finalise your seating chart and place cards. If some guests still haven’t responded by your deadline, give them a quick call or message and ask for their RSVPs (still via mail) so you have all their information.
