When to Order Your Invitations

Engaged couples often ask about the timeline for placing their wedding stationery orders.
This helpful guide is a great at-a-glance resource to help you get started.
Visit our blog on Perfectly Invited for more useful tips!

6 to 9 Months Save the Dates

Save the Dates are a fun way to announce your big news while giving your guests plenty of time to clear their calendars. Order your save-the date cards or magnets from Perfectly Invited as soon as you know your wedding date (especially if it's a destination wedding), or 6-9 months before your wedding.


3 to 6 Months

Your guests have marked their calendars, now it's time to wow them with your invitation and wedding details. Schedule an appointment with a Perfectly Invited designer in advance to place your invitation and response card order; 3-6 months before your wedding if it's local or 6-9 months prior if it's a destination wedding.

1 to 2 Months Ceremony and Reception

By now, you have your theme, colors and fonts selected for your wedding invitation. Carry that style through to all of your Day-Of pieces including programs, menus, seating charts, table numbers and more. Come back to Perfectly Invited after you have received your RSVPs or 1-2 months before your big day.

Rehearsal Dinner

1 to 2 Months

You're so close! You have almost everything you need. Invitations to rehearsal dinner can be ordered as an insert card at the same time as your wedding invitations, or 1-2 months before your wedding with table numbers and place cards for the rehearsal dinner. This would also be the ideal time to purchase other accessories you may need such as display easels, a photo montage, or engagement enlargements.

4 to 6 weeks after Thank you Cards

You've had your beautiful wedding. Time to thank your amazing friends and thoughtful family members! Sending out your thank you cards within 4-6 weeks after your wedding is standard, especially if you wish to include a wedding photo. If you start receiving wedding gifts soon after your invitations go out, you may wish to order your thank you cards then thank your gift givers as you go.
