Wedding Stationery Timeline

Planning a wedding is a huge undertaking, and there are many details that can get lost in the shuffle. One of the most important and often overlooked details is wedding stationery printing. Knowing the timeline for printing and how to prepare for it properly can help ensure your wedding stationery is ready when you need it. This blog post will explain the timeline for wedding stationery printing so you can properly plan for yours.

For couples planning a wedding, stationery printing can be an important part of the process. To ensure that all your stationery pieces are printed and sent out in time, it’s important to plan and create a timeline of when each stationery piece needs to be printed and sent out.

By following this timeline, couples can ensure that all their wedding stationery pieces are printed and sent out in time. With careful planning and attention to detail, couples can have peace of mind knowing that their wedding stationery will be taken care of.

More Than 6 Months to Go!

As soon as you’ve decided on a wedding date, it’s time to start thinking about wedding stationery. Printing wedding stationery can be a lengthy process, so it’s important to plan to ensure you have everything you need in time for your big day.

The first step is to begin researching stationery designers or printing companies 8-12 months before your wedding. This will give you plenty of time to find the perfect design and decide on which type of stationery you would like to include (invitations, save-the-dates, escort cards, etc.). Once you’ve narrowed down your choices, make sure to create a budget and factor in postage costs.

Once you’ve got your budget sorted, it’s time to start shopping around for your stationery 6-8 months before your wedding. This will give you plenty of time to make any necessary changes or adjustments before ordering. Additionally, it’s important to remember to order any additional stationery pieces such as thank you cards, programs, or menus at least 4 months prior to your wedding.

Once you’ve placed your order, allow at least six weeks for your stationery to be printed and delivered. This should give you plenty of time to mail out your invitations to your guests. Finally, don’t forget to order enough stationery for any family members or close friends who may need to send out their own invitations.

Planning is essential when it comes to printing wedding stationery. By following the timeline outlined above, you can rest assured that you’ll have everything you need in plenty of time for your big day.

2-4 Months to Go!

Once you have chosen a printing company, it is best to place your stationery order 2-4 months before your wedding date to allow time for any possible delays or issues.

Once you have your stationery in hand, review it and make sure it is exactly what you want. If necessary, address and assemble the stationery. Then, start sending out the stationery 4-6 weeks before the wedding date. This will give your family and friends plenty of time to RSVP and plan for the big day.

By taking the time to plan the timeline for wedding stationery printing, you will be able to ensure that you have the perfect stationery for your special day.

1-2 Months to Go!

With only 4-8 weeks left before your big day, all your invitations should be sent, and most (if not all) should have been RSVP’d to by now. Use this time to chase up anyone who has not yet responded to your invitation so you can confirm final numbers with your venue and caterer with plenty of time left to spare!

When Should I Send My Wedding Thank You Cards?

Thank you cards are an important part of the wedding stationery printing timeline and should not be overlooked. Sending thank you cards to those who gave you a wedding gift is a great way to show your appreciation and gratitude for their generosity. It’s best to send your thank you cards as soon as possible after you receive the gift and aim to have them sent within 3 months of the wedding. When ordering your thank you cards, plan to order a few extra in case you need them.

When writing your thank you cards, make sure to include a heartfelt message that expresses your gratitude for the gift. If you’re sending thank you cards to guests who attended your wedding, make sure to include a special message thanking them for being part of your special day. If you’re sending thank you cards to vendors who helped make your wedding day special, make sure to include a special message of appreciation. Lastly, don’t forget to include your return address so recipients can easily respond with a thank you note of their own.

When ordering your wedding stationery, make sure to include your thank you cards at the same time so they match. It’s best to order your thank you cards at the same time as the other stationery to ensure they match and are ready to be sent out when needed. Doing this will help ensure your thank you cards are sent out in a timely fashion and that your wedding stationery is cohesive.
