Four months to go until your wedding day! This month we recommend the following timeline tips:
Mail invitations to your guests
During this month you’ll want to mail out your wedding invitations. If you asked your designer to address the envelopes, the hard work is already done for you! Simply, make sure all your enclosures are in each envelope and securely seal. Don’t forget to have a sample of your completed invitation with all its enclosures weighed at your post office ahead of time. This ensures there are no surprises when you mail your invites and helps you know the exact postage to buy.
Design your bridal shower thank you cards
If at this point you had your bridal shower, you’ll want to contact your designer about thank you cards. A designer will be able to create a thank you card that matches the theme of your shower. Don’t have enough time to hand-write each one? We can write a standard message inside the card with any wording of your choosing. If you prefer to personally write each card, spend a little bit of time each day writing your thank yous. If you would like a tool to help you manage your shower gifts, feel free to use our Gift Documentation Sheet.
Record RSVP cards to track your guest count
Once your invitations are sent, just sit back and wait for the RSVP cards to return in the mail. Keep in mind that if you have a minimum guest number for your wedding, you’ll want to be ready to send the second round of invites to your “B-List” guests. The more notice you give yourself, the better you’ll be able to monitor and be in control of your guest count.
