Some favorite wedding invitation wisdom that I love to share with my Stone Hill Paperie clients:
- It's never too early to browse wedding invitations to educate yourself on the options available and to find a great design for your big day. Get your name on your stationer's mailing list or Facebook page - you never know when a promotion might pop up for your invitation designer!
- Before you place your invitation order,
double-check the quantity of invitations needed. You may think that you can just order some additional invitations later, but the initial 25 invitations are the most expensive. It's much more cost-effective to order a little more at the onset than to add additional quantities later.
- Be sure to have a complete set of one invitation weighed prior to sending your invitations. There is nothing worse than mailing all of your invitations out on Monday morning only to receive ALL of them back on Tuesday afternoon for insufficient postage!
- Use your RSVP cards to plan your seating arrangements. You can lay the cards out on your dining room table and easily move them around before finalizing anything on a chart.
The best advice I received before my own wedding that I love to share with brides that visit Stone Hill Paperie is to take a moment during your wedding reception to stop, look around at all of your guests and soak it all in. You may never have all of these people in one place together again. Life happens so quickly - I think back on that moment that I took at my own wedding often and treasure the memories.
