While we dish about the hottest trends and latest designs (aka the fun parts of wedding planning!) we also know how stressful prepping for the big day can be. So, we would like to formally introduce you to Etta, our new etiquette expert. She’s ready and happy to delve into your every etiquette dilemma.
My fiance and I are putting together our to-do list for the big day. When does stationery shopping start and how much of a heads up do our guests need?
This handy checklist will keep you on track with all your correspondence. Here’s what you need to get, send and when:
Create your wedding website (good news… it’s absolutely free!)
Order your save the date
Send your save the date
Order your wedding invitations with response cards, enclosure cards and thank you cards
Order thank you cards for your shower
Get your guest list organized and envelopes ready to be addressed
Mail your invitations (and prepare for the oohs and ahhs)
Order your programs, menus and place cards
Order your favors or DIY them
Send your thank you cards within two weeks of returning from the honeymoon
