The Card Makes Me Want To Attend The Event! The way a card looks on the outside is equally as important as what’s written on the inside. There are so many creative and funky ways to prepare your engagement invite before presenting it to the whole wide world. Today, people have gone beyond a simple card, which merely communicates the basic information that needs to be passed on to guests. Engagement invitations these days can be awesome, instead of plain and boring. These invites showcase the masterpiece of the works of art and design, which have been used to build them up. They can be sober, or zany; they can be simple or look like collected drops of solidified pearlescent rainbows; or as pop-out cards, with an accompanying song that plays as they are opened.
What Should I Write? (Your brain is probably screaming the above words at you… more like throwing it like a pair of high heels on your face.) When it comes right down to the engagement invitation wording, please try not to get stressed. This will take a bad turn and will spoil the way your engagement invitation reads. Writing is not a daunting task at all. It is definitely not similar to pushing a lazy-thristy-donkey up a hill and to make it drink water. It is more akin to finding the elephant in foggy room; you only need to feel around to find it. Always remember that according to the type of couple, the invitation card’s content changes to replicate the mindset. Keep in mind to add a hint of you and your significant other’s personality.
Start Early: Your save-the-dates should go out six to eight months before the wedding. It can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks—or longer, depending how fancy you go—to print them. While your save-the-dates don't have to match your invites, ordering everything from one stationer can save you money and make the invitation process easier on you. So start scouting stationers 9 to 11 months before the wedding. Aim to order your invitations about four to five months out so they're ready to mail six to eight weeks before the wedding. If you're having a destination wedding or marrying over the holidays, send out your invites even earlier (10 to 12 weeks before the wedding).
Put a Stamp on It: It may seem obvious, but it's easy to forget: If you want guests to mail back their reply cards, include stamped (and addressed) envelopes. That way they don't have to pay for the postage. Traditionally, the return envelopes should be addressed to whoever is hosting the wedding; however, if your parents are technically hosting, but you're keeping track of the guest list, you can use your address instead. And you can find customizable stamps to coordinate with your design at The Knot Shop. Tip: Rates do change from time to time, so check before you add those stamps to make sure you have adequate postage.
