Wedding Invitation Etiquettes-Tips To Invite Your Guests

Selection of wedding invitation cards is one of the most important steps of planning your wedding. The next important step, in fact a very important one is to give those cards to your guests. Now the question arises, what is the best way to invite your guests? Here are some of the important wedding invitation etiquettes one should remember, brought to you by King of Cards India Private Limited.

When to send?
Ideally, invitations should go out eight weeks before the wedding, this gives guests plenty of time to clear their schedules for the day and make travel arrangements if they are out-of-towners. Timely invitations also let you make the RSVP date earlier.

Make sure no one is missed out
It is a good practice to make a guest list prepared well in time so that no friend and relative are missed out. Wedding is a single time affair and forgetting any of the relatives or friends would be a blunder.

Why hand delivery is the best?
Hand delivery is usually the best option as this way, you will get to say a few words to each guest while you present the invitation and, most important, the invitation will not be overlooked. Hindu wedding cards were traditionally delivered by hand only.

How to send the cards by post?
Your invitation envelopes are the simplest but hardest-working members of your suite. Unlike its contents, which are printed en masse, the envelopes must be addressed individually, with careful attention given to name spellings, addresses and, of course, handwriting. Some of the important things to keep in mind while sending invitation by post are-Guests’ names should be written in full, with appropriate social titles, i.e. Mr. etc, the handwriting should be good and a good quality pen should be used.
