4-6 months before the wedding

· Order wedding invitations, enclosure cards, printed envelopes 

· Order extras for last minute invitations and personal keepsakes.


2-4 months before the wedding 

· Put your invitations in the mail 6–8 weeksbefore the wedding. 

· Order day–of items 4-6 weeks  prior. Ceremony programs, wedding favors, personalized napkins, menu cards, table numbers and anything else you want to share with guests.


2-3 weeks before the wedding

· Contact any guests who have not sent back response cards so you will have an accurate guest count.


Enjoy Your Wedding Day


Right after the wedding

Send out your thank you notes. You have three months, but don’t wait. This way the task doesn’t seem overwhelming and your guests know you received their gifts, and that you loved celebrating with them.
