Last Minute Orders } June 2010 Weddings

Last call for June invitation orders! Engaged couples, your invitations should be mailed 6-8 weeks before your big day. June Weddings, means April Mailings. July couples, you're right behind June ... get your papery orders in today to avoid rush charges.

And now ... a little ordering and mailing review for you!

It is recommended to order your announcement papery {save the dates, invitations, announcements} 2 months prior to your desired mailing date.

Ceremony & reception papery {programs, menus, escort cards, table cards, favor tags, decor items, etc.} if not ordered at the same time as your announcement papery {recommended} should be ordered 4 weeks prior to the big day. At the 4 week mark you should have your replies back and a firm guest count so as to not over -or- under order your day of papery.

When do I mail my wedding announcement papery, you ask??
