3 helpful hints when organising your wedding stationery

1. Start early.  Most people greatly underestimate the time needed to browse, order, receive, assemble, and mail wedding invitations.

It is customary for invitations to be sent out 6 to 8 weeks before the wedding.  If you are looking at sending out Save The Date cards, these should be sent out 6 to 9 months in advance, to allow for people travelling from interstate or overseas.

2. Decide on other stationery.  A standard invitation suite includes the invitation and reply card, but think about other things like custom maps, table numbers, placecards or  favour tags to match your invitation, just to name a few.

3. Proof-read, Proof-read, Proof-read!  Read, re-read and then pass onto someone else you trust to proof-read it as well.  The more eyes the better.  Make sure commas and full-stops are in their right places, and spelling, dates and times are correct.
