Digital Wedding Invitations, although very non-traditional, are great for many reasons: they’re low budget, low stress, and environmentally friendly. If it suits your wedding to override the tradition of mailing invites, then rest assured that there are countless customizable digital design options for you to send your guests something exciting to prepare them for your big day. Other than method of sending, the details of digital invitations follow the standards for printed ones. Send your invites four to eight months in advance so guests can make proper arrangements. Layout your invitation using traditional verbiage, including a request for an RSVP. RSVPs can be much simpler for guests when it just takes a quick reply to confirm! Make sure you include all the necessary details and link to your wedding website if you have one. Although there are so many designs online to choose from, try to keep your wedding suite consistent. Have your Save the Dates match the invites, which should also match any update emails or invites to additional wedding-related events. Don’t hesitate to reach out to your guests if you don’t hear back from them incase your emails end up in their junk folder!
When planning out a timeline for your wedding, think about sending out your invitations with enough time for your guests to make proper arrangements. Save the Dates are traditionally the first step in the invitation process, and are sent out anywhere from four to eight months before the wedding. If you are having a destination or international wedding, consider sending your save the dates sooner rather than later, while smaller or more local weddings don’t require as much notice. Generally, formal wedding invitations can be mailed out six to eight weeks before your wedding. This allows guests ample time to make travel and accommodation reservations if necessary. For any invitations being mailed internationally, keep in mind it could take several weeks to reach the recipient, so prioritize these invitations with enough time for your guests to respond. RSVPs should be requested from your guests about three weeks before the wedding, which allows enough time to give a final headcount to vendors and caterers. If you don’t receive a formal reply in the mail, don’t hesitate to give your guests a quick call to confirm their RSVP.
