Play With the Shape and Size: A 4.5-inch-by-6.25-inch rectangular card is the traditional size and shape for wedding invitations. But couples are channeling more playful or modern vibes with circular, scalloped and square invitations. Don't forget to consider that veering away from the standard envelope size can increase the postage—bulky or extra-large invites may cost more to send.
Remember Your Thank-Yous: Track RSVPs as they come in using a guest list manager tool or spreadsheet. Include a column where you can note what each guest gives you. Then, as the wedding gifts start rolling in, begin writing your thank-you notes so you don't fall behind. For any presents received before the wedding, you should send a thank-you note within two weeks. For those given on or after the wedding day, give yourself a month.
Do a Weigh-In: While you probably can't wait to drop those wedding invitations in the mail and check another thing off your to-do list, weighing a sample invitation (enclosures and all) at the post office first could save you many more to-dos later. Trust us, you don't want to deal with the hassle of invitations being returned because of insufficient postage. And while you're at the post office, ask about hand-canceling your invites. This involves a stamp that says your mail is processed (instead of running your invites through the processing machine like regular mail, which could bend or even ruin them).
Birthday Invitation Etiquette: Whether you’re planning a birthday party for your little one or having a party for adults, invitation etiquette is the same. Make sure you know what to put on your invitations and when to send them to everyone on your guest list. Another thing to remember is invitation information: date, time, guest of honor, anything the attendees should bring, dress code and the method for RSVPs. The general rule in timing is to send them out approximately eight weeks in advance, or a little less for a child’s party. Before the big day, plan ahead and order your personalized thank you cards for after the party. Shutterfly has a huge variety of many charming options, including designs that perfectly complement your invitations. With many modern and vibrant designs, there is something for everyone.
