Get Your Dates Straight: Include your RSVP information on the bottom right corner of your invitation or on a separate enclosure, and make the deadline no more than three or four weeks after guests receive the invitations. Check with your caterer first to find out when they'll need the final head count. Remember: The more time you give guests to reply, the more likely they are to forget—but you'll need time to put together the seating chart. Plus, your final count may affect the number of centerpieces and other décor elements, which your vendors will need to finalize a few weeks before the wedding.
Assemble the materials to make the party invitations. You will need just a few simple materials to make these pretty party invitations: colored paper (You can use text weight paper or for a more substantial card-like feel, use card stock paper); flower punch (You can use any flower shape you like; for a 3-D effect, you can get flower petals of different sizes and fold up the petals to make raised paper flowers. The flowers used in this craft were made with hydrangea flower punches by Martha Stewart Crafts); glue dots in size small; ruler (You can use the ruler to give the cards a nice, neat fold); scissors or a paper cutter (To cut an 8 12" x 11" sheet of paper in half to fold each half into a card.); washi tape
Choose Your Words Wisely: Learn the rules to wording your invitation. Traditionally, whoever is hosting is listed first on the invitation. Customarily, you should spell everything out, including the time of the ceremony. On classic wedding invitations, there's always a request line after the host's name—something like "so and so request the honor of your presence." The wording can change as the hosting situation does, so make sure to double-check you've added everyone who should be included.
While hand-canceling is free, check with your local post office first to make sure that it has the hand stamp. And keep in mind that while most post offices try to keep hand-canceled mail separate from regular mail, there's no absolute guarantee that your invitations won't go through the processing machines. To ensure they don't, you can pay a non-machinable fee to have them hand-processed—it will guarantee that your mail will be sorted by hand.
