Your wedding invitations are among the first things you have to handle as a newly-engaged couple (and they are really important!). Remember, though: invitations are more than just the design itself, so you will have to make sure they actually reach your guests as well.

How to mail your wedding invitations and what are some of the most important tips to know about this? We have some tips for you so read on and find out more.

  • Avoid odd-shaped invitations. We know you want to be unique and that’s totally understandable. However, if budget is a concern for you, then you might want to avoid invitations that are anything but rectangular, as the postal office will most likely charge you for any odd-shaped envelopes.
  • Don’t just drop them off. It might seem easier, faster, and more comfortable to drop them into a street mailbox – but truth be told, this also means the invitations may not get to their destination in one piece. To be safe, enter the actual postal office and send them from there.
  • Ask to have them hand-cancelled. Some postal offices use an automatized system to sort out the invitations, but this might damage them in the process. To ensure your envelopes will not be ruined, ask the postal office to hand-cancel them.
  • Use tissue paper to separate the different parts of the invitation suite. Not only does this look really pretty, but it also helps you avoid smudges (especially if you used dark ink or thermography to print your invitations).
