An Invitation Assembling Get Together

Weekly Wedding Tip
brought to you by
"Try to allow at least a month to assemble your invitations and address the envelopes - and consider calling on your bridesmaids to help."

To help you better estimate when to assemble your invitations - the average guideline to follow for sending the invitations is 8 weeks before the wedding and ask for an RSVP date 3 weeks before your wedding. If you don't get to send them out until 6 weeks before the big day, ask for an RSVP date of 2 weeks before the wedding. You'll want to make sure you have enough time to start creating your place cards, making final head counts and seating arrangements, assembling favors, etc. So, if you want to plan a fun day with your bridesmaids to assemble your invitations, you are looking at having a get together around 3 months before the big day.
