Have You Mailed Your Wedding Invitations?

Leave a comment

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).

Your wedding invitations and stationery are definitely important to you. However, that doesn’t mean you’ll have to spend a small fortune on these items. In fact, there are plenty of ways to save money on your wedding stationery – and following, we have gathered some of the best tips when it comes to this. Read on and find out more!

  • Choose the right provider. Same as with all the other wedding elements, your wedding stationery’s price depends a lot on the vendor you choose. For example, online stationery stores tend to have much better prices for their products, and they will surely offer you with a wide range of options too. Also, if you want to, you can choose the services of a more expensive designer for the invitations and stick to an online store for the other elements of your invitation suite and day-of stationery.
  • Keep it simple. The more intricate and personalized your invitations are, the more you will pay. Stick to simple paper and calligraphy, keep your invitations even-shaped and light and go for a simple elegance. You can save a lot of money this way! And if you really want something special for your invitations, choose only one expensive element (e.g. the paper) and settle for simpler options for the design, calligraphy and everything else.
  • Go paperless. Wedding etiquette rules say that e-invitations are not a good idea. However, you can save a lot of money by having traditional paper invitations for the actual wedding and complementing them with e-invitations and a well-planned wedding website for the other events (the brunch after the wedding, the bridal shower, and so on).
