3 Months to go, your wedding is now so close! You’re nearing the end of the wedding planning process. Hopefully your on schedule, see 4-5 months to go if you think you may have missed a step. For now though the time has finally come to show off a bit and give your guests an insight into the amazing weeding you and your fiance have been busy planning by sending out your invitations. We can help you with addressing your invites but when it comes to guests not RSVP’ing on time we’re afraid your on your own! So read on and print out our detailed checklist to be completed by you and your fiance over the next couple of months, oh and we’ve also included a cool guest book alternative idea this month in the form of our custom thumb-print guest tree. Happy Planning!! x
Aim to send invitations out eight weeks before the wedding giving guests plenty of time to make arrangements. Also the earlier they receive their invite the earlier they RSVP, allowing you to make the final headcount! Send your envelopes to a calligrapher or make time to write them out yourself.
