The Ins & Outs of Wedding Invitations

Did you know that many traditions of wedding invitations can date back to the 1600's? With that kind of history, there can be a lot of pressure leading up to spending wedding invitations. You've already made some major decisions like a date and location for your Colorado Springs wedding, but now is time to send the formal invitations to your guests. From when to send the invitations to addressing the envelopes, there can be many questions about inviting people to your wedding. Don't worry, The Historic Pinecrest has you covered with week's blog!

Picking out Invitations

A fun part of planning your special day is to select the theme of your wedding invitations. Whether you want to match the theme of your wedding or would rather an image of yourselves to grace the invite, you can find an invitation that fits you and your soon-to-be spouse's personality. You can help set the tone of your wedding with invitations as well. If you're putting together a classy gathering, pick a similar invitation.

Invitation Timing

If you plan to send a save the date, it should be sent to those you're inviting six to eight months in advance. Once you get a little closer to your wedding, it's recommended to send the formal invitations six to eight weeks out from your wedding date. If you are planning a destination wedding, send the invites three months prior to the big day!

Addressing the Envelopes

While this seems like a simple task, it is a time consuming step that needs attention to detail. Ensure each envelope is addressed individually and you have the spellings correct. You can also use formal names, Mr. and Mrs.,when addressing for a wedding. A return address is typically placed on the back flap on the envelope, for a wedding invitation. Many wedding invitations have a double envelope. You address the outside envelop like normal and simply write the names of your guests on the inside envelope. If you plan to request an RSVP from your guest, the return envelope should have a stamp on it, as well.

Although there are many guidelines to wedding invitations, you don't have to follow these "rules" to a T. If you want to send a simple invitation with one envelope, you do just that. Many brides and grooms are steering away from the RSVP system too, since a number of people don't respond in a timely fashion. This is your big day and you can invite your guests however you see fit!
