WHEN TO SEND OUT YOUR STATIONERY
Your stationery is probably the most important piece of your wedding. After all, if guests don’t know when and where your wedding is, how are they going to attend? There is a certain etiquette timeline that you should follow in order for your guests to arrange their travel options and for you to get a guest count. The timeline below should help guide you through the stationery process. Also see these posts for additional help, wedding timeline or Invitation Etiquette.
