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.
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.
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.
If you plan to do them yourselves, tackle the project in a few sittings to avoid sloppiness or mistakes. While using printed labels is an easy (and affordable) option, handwriting each address is not only more formal, it's also more personal. It shows your guests that you want them to be at your wedding so much that you took the time to handwrite (or have a calligrapher hand-letter) their name and address on the envelope. But if your penmanship is more like chicken scratch and you don't have the budget for a calligrapher, you can print the addresses from your computer using digital calligraphy software.
