Invitations and Timing
Your invitation whether fully printed or DIY should match the style of your event. Is it formal, semi-formal or a casual backyard get together. Your invitation provides the details of the celebration as well as what to expect at the party.
Traditionally, it is advised to send out invitations eight weeks before your event. We can hear you screaming "Eight weeks!" We've found while this is a good idea with formal events and weddings, it is just not possible with most every-day events. Our customers tell us that they didn't even think about having a party until 2-6 weeks before their event. The sooner you can notify your guests, the better, but don't let this stress you out or prevent you from getting invitations at the last minute. If you don’t have time to DIY your invitations we offer fully printed invitations super cheap!
If you know you're having a party for an event that is several months away, consider sending a Save the Date card. This is simply a notice to your guest list that you are planning an event for that date and to mark their calendars so they'll be ready when the details follow by invitation closer to the party date when the details have been finalized. Save the Date cards are almost a necessity for events taking place on holiday weekends, events that will require out of state travel for guests or a wedding to ensure vacations are not scheduled for the same time.
